Moody Ocean Blues

Have you visited 


They always provide one with such gorgeous eye candy, matched up with the most devine colour palletes.

This one is definately my new favourite!!

What have you got planned for your weekend?
We have a soccer game for my 9yr old son, unfortunately they get beaten most weeks, but they haven't played this team before so fingers crossed they get a win & regain a little team confidence!!

Tonight we are off to celebrate my sisters 30th birthday, Im making the cake pops. Should be a tonne of fun, her parties usually are.

Dream child No1 is also coming home for the weekend, We haven't seen her for about 6 weeks so the whole family is eagerly awaiting her arrival, Im sure she loves the group hugs whilst she is still trying to get out of her car,, he he he!

have a lovely weekend everyone, I cant wait to here how you're going to spend it!

Relaxing in the great outdoors

Source Satisfying Spaces

The winter weather has been rather chilly here in Australia's gorgeous Hunter Valley,the coldest winter I have experienced in the 3years I have lived here.

We haven't spent to much time relaxing in our outdoor spaces, although a fireplace like this one would certainly make it more inviting.

Do you have a fabulous outdoor area to enjoy a BBQ with friends on the weekends?

This image leaves me wondering just what the view might be like, it must be pretty fabulous to have all these pretty rocking chairs lined up in a row?????

Source House & Garden

I think this one is my favourite space, I can't go past timber, natural stone, white accents & water views, even if it is just a pool!!

Have an AWESOME week everyone!

Fireplace Fantasy

With winter well and truly upon us here in Australia I am back to dreaming of romantic bedroom fireplaces.

This is how I would need it to look at my house as we are that terrible couple that have a tv in the bedroom...

I love black & white schemes, they are always so so stylish!

I know this isn't exactly a bedroom image, but I am really loving this look at the moment, all of that crisp, clean white , softened by some stone.

 Its very cosy & inviting don't you think!

What does the cold weather leave you wishing for?

Have a great weekend everyone & thanks for dropping by!!!
