This is gorgeous - makes me think of so many amazing ideas we could have done on our wedding day - but our day was perfect - this can be for someone else's special day :)

My first purchase for Ellis House!

Mum and I headed up to Olinda in Mount Dandenong today, I used to live in Olinda years ago and I remember how beautiful it was going home to the country (I forgot about the rain and fog, gosh it was cold). After many hours of internet searching I have made my first purchase for the new Country house. Here are my beautiful "Coral" (the now colour!) Louis arm chairs, gorgeous oversized wicker basket and cool old style original print. I'm thinking Coral and Linen with soft French Grey and a beautiful Chandelier for Bedroom 3. We are heading up to the house tomorrow for a couple of hours of measuring - fun times ahead :)

Ceramics - will I be any good?

Sometimes you just need to do something creative that's out of your usual day to day life. So for me it was Ceramics. Will I be any good? Or will I be as bad as I was at high school? I don't know I do still have the emotional scars of the clay jumping off my wheel and flying across the room in year 10! I like the idea of 3 hours of concentrating on this lovely piece of clay, with the thought that I may indeed create something gorgeous. Whether I do or not is yet to be decided but I am enjoying trying so far. So thank you in advance to the lovely Ilona at Cone 11 for her patience! If you are keen to learn the art of "throwing" check out her available courses at the Abbotsford convent here.
