Thank you

Yep, it's been a while since January. I've been thinking about this blog a lot and I think it's a natural time to leave it be for a while. Life has had many changes since I started back in 2008 and it's been amazing to have a space to chronicle ideas, keep pictures and list books. But it's increasingly become harder to keep up with, and I don't want to see it as a chore.

So I'm saying a heartfelt thank you to my readers (I think it's mainly my Mum!) and I may well pop in again in some time.

Heavy heart

My heart is heavy today for those in Sydney but the #illridewithyou meme has made me so proud to be Australian and to fight prejudice where we can. 

I'm heading home for Christmas this week, so will be light on posting over the break, but will check in to say hello soon.

Delicious room layout

Such a soothing room - the light and the muted colours are so peaceful to look at.

Well this changes things. GOLD Hasbeens. Of course they're not in my size, but if they fit you, just do this, please, for all of us.

Charlotte Love

Isn't this a gorgeous colour palette? The pink, white and black really jump out at me in an amazing way.

Mr Midnight and Berry Sleepy

Cotton On have released a very cute range of new kids bedding today and I bought (for the Pal and I) a boy and a girl pillowcase that I think are pretty gorgeous. It brings my pillowcase up to about 4000, but I think it's worth it.

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

I haven't raved about a book on here for a while, but this was a particularly awesome read. Super clever plot, beautiful, aching writing and just an exceptionally clever idea. Loved it.

Klas Fahlen Letterpressed notebooks

Ooh hi pretties. Some lovely letterpressed notebooks coming out of Chronicle Books at the moment and I love the mid-century feel of these ones, especially.

Happy Thanksgiving

I am embracing America today and thankfully taking two days off to spend with family. I have way too much to be thankful for, as usual, and am feeling humbled, happy and grateful. Hope you have a lovely day, wherever you are, and whatever you're celebrating. See you Monday!

2015 is coming!

I've had long conversations with V, my stationery enabler/buddy about the place of a paper diary in an increasingly phone/watch/computer led world. I decided not to invest heavily in all the diaries/planners that I liked, but to get this fun one (a page a day) for just the general goings-on/meeting notes that I like to take on paper. It's not a perfect solution, but it's very pretty. (It's also about 40% off in Black Friday sales - just saying!).
