Apartment Therapy Goodness.

I LOVE, LOVE Apartment Therapy!! This is an image from ninainvorm's photostream that was featured on Apartment Therapy. It is totally the house I would have if I lived in NYC. How great is the wallpaper next to the excellent quilt! I Love it.

You can also check out her blog here. Well worth a look. One of my very favorites of all time.

Vintage sampler of the day

Available here shipping from Sarver, PA, United States! Going cheap at around $10. I like the birds.

So I really like this bike...

And I think it would look even better with my craft basket affixed to the handle bars..

Lamp Hibou.

Have I ever in the past blogged about Marie Christophe? Or more importantly her Lamp Hibou? Well, I first saw the wonderful lamp a few years ago and cut it out of an old magazine. Of course I forgot who made it but now I've found my way back to it's creator! Now, I just need to work out how to obtain the real thing...

Bon Bon Kakku

Yay! How much fun is this website! Bon Bon Kakku lets you design your own fabrics, upload them and if they are voted most popular they will be printed and placed on sale in the store! Otherwise, if you're not up to join the competition there is an excellent range to choose from that you won't find elsewhere. My current favorite is this one - Alphatape: Chalk Dust Colourway by Bunkumreplete.

Decal Dolly

Love the new artist designed Decals available via the Third Drawer Down website. This lovely one is by Kat McLeod

Wiksten Made

I found Jenny's great blog a while ago one day while following links. Forgetting to bookmark it I lost it and have been kicking myself for quite a while. Then just now whilst doing a search for gingham on Flickr. Voila! Up pops one of Jenny's images and I am reunited!! Hooray!!!!

Jenny makes the most excellent clothing and inspires me to become a better sewer. I think I shall need to practice an hour everyday for quite a while to get my head around sewing. That or a need to take a weekend intensive course somewhere... I would also save a lot of money on clothing. So it'd be all good.

Just make sure you check out Jenny's blog. It's my favorite.

P.S There is a shop too. All handmade by Jenny in limited numbers. Well worth it if you ask me.

Cross stitch pencil case

This is just a lovely example of a cross stitch pencil case that I found floating around Flickr. It's by the talented Anne M and you can look at more of her great workings here. Lovely, lovely photo's.

This is a great quilt top I just found on Ebay. What's even better was the little rant the seller had in the Payment Information section! Quite funny as I get where she is coming from.

Craft City - Melbourne

Make sure you take a peek at Craft City - Melbourne. A great new directory blog to find out about craftiness all over Melbourne. Great idea ladies! Another great find courtesy of the craft ladies is their profile on Lefflers Leather. A local leather emporium I have been meaning to visit for quite some time.

Xenia Taler

I'm a bit of a tile fan from way back. Many years ago I made a series at high school which live with my parents. One day I hope to get a photo of them to show you all - another thing to add to the list!

These Xenia Taler tiles are available online and made by the very talented Xenia Taler and partner Steven Koblinsky. If I had a set I think I would hang them in the kitchen. Or incorporate them in the tile work in the bathroom.. But I also think they would make a lovely baby shower present to hang in a nursery. If so I would purchase this set.


Apologies for being such an absent blogger of late. I have started a new job and it has just been crazy busy. So I think until I get into a better rhythm I'm going to be posting as much as I can on Sundays mainly.x
