Things Lately



Time seems to be going really fast right now, I want it to slow down, last week was quick but this weekend has been even faster!

- Last thursday the postman dropped off a rather large and exciting box, I splurged at Anthropologie when the dollar hit $1.10 US! Everything is beautiful (you can see a few things above - the bowl with the eton mess, and the notebooks and some pillow cases that are in the bottom shot), I'm so glad I just did it.

- I think it's because spring must be on the way but I've been thinking a lot about growing more plants in pots on my front porch and have now planted some baby carrots (not sure how they will go in a pot), rocket, lemon thyme and icelandic poppies for pretty colour.

- I've been listening to Watch the Throne (not too bad!), watching 24 Hour Party People (very good- and Ian Curtis' death was easier to deal with than in Anton Corbijn's Control), Never Let Me Go (somewhat disturbing) and reading Inheritance

- Apparently I like orange, who knew! I would never have said so but I've noticed it a lot in my things lately.

Hope you all had great weekends!

Anthro! I'm rather jealous :)
I love all your goodies, it just makes me want to go shopping. I've never been into orange much but by golly I adore it with hot pink. Great pillowcases.
Have a happy week x

ohh, isn't the high dollar great :) it does sort of egg me on to splurge, but then i remember when we were way down around 65c and i dont feel so bad!

Oh I love Anthro and I had exactly the same impulse when the US dollar was falling against the NZ dollar here. However I have so many things on my Anthro wishlist I was kind of paralysed by the choice and am still thinking what to buy! I've been really enjoying your blog and flickr photostream, by the way. Thanks for making my Sunday blog viewing so nice :)

I love that photo of the pot plants! Yes, there is something thrilling about online shopping that is different - the anticipation of waiting for the parcel is high. You have reminded me that it's now time to go to the market herbs man and get him to put together a mixed planter box for me now that spring is on its way. I have started to smell it in the air and feel like it's time to start sleeping with the bedroom window open again. Lovely. May your pot plants thrive!

Control was such a depressing movie wasn't it? Although I didn't really like how Ian was portrayed in 24 Hour Party People- but the movie was quite good. I love your collection of orange bits and pieces- you have such good taste :)

That bowl is so beautiful! I love the stuff you picked out from Anthropologie! It's so funny, because just yesterday I was in Anthro eyeing those notebooks. They are so beautiful! What will you fill their pages with, I'm curious? Hope you're doing well!

about time you join the orange gang! and didnt' you know? orange and seagreen/minty blue is like the BEST combo ever :)

Gorgeous bowl, it's very 'you' and those notebooks are adorable. I've been making a few Etsy purchases lately too with the exchange rate so good. Hope your herbs/vegetables do well for you - our baby carrots were a dismal crop but we have lettuce everywhere in our patch at the moment :)

P.S Yes, it was Harry Potter I saw last week, loved it but was sad to think it was the final movie.

oh, no! i think i have to buy those journals, too! - delightful color combinations you are working with! - oh, and i agree about 'the beginners'. i wasn't expecting it to be that... affecting and awesome.
