Happy Friday

woo hoo today is the last friday in winter and I am so pleased! I think this weekend is going to be a good one, I've got plans to go see Moonrise Kingdom (I looove Wes Anderson films and can't believe Australia had to wait so long for this one), out for dinner, maybe some baking and definitely some picture taking.

Hope you have a good weekend too.

ps the cake is from my mum's birthday last friday, I baked Stephanie Alexanders sponge and filled it with strawberries, jam and cream....not too shabby!

Light and bright and spring-like

I'm hanging out for spring and I think its showing in my pins recently.

Recently Sarah of Mollys Maison and Martina of Six Black Dots (who's got a sparkly new blog!) asked me to share more pics of Jerry Springer Spaniel in all his puppy cuteness. I must point out that Jerry is actually my boyfriend Matt's dog, but still I get to hang out with him.

I also just wanted to let you know that it might to start looking a bit messy here on little glowing lights for a little while, I've been wanting to update the design of this space for ages and so my friend Sam has very kindly agreed to help out.

Last weekend I made some lemon curd filled doughnuts for Island Menu, it's been a while since I've done a post but I was pleased with how they turned out!

This weekend...

...has gone way too fast for my liking, they seem to be doing that a lot lately! The weather has still been pretty blah still but I've seen lots of blossom around, there's been some cooking (for Island Menu! should be up later this week), a bit of house cleaning, and walking Jerry Springer Spaniel. I think I'm ready for next weekend already!

Interior Love

A pretty Before and After via Design Sponge, I love the sofa and the mirrors grouped together look great, especially with those nice clean white walls.

Good Mail

It's been a while since I had some good mail, for the most part it's been bills, so I had to share: a copy of toc toc toc magazine from France and Varpunen sacks from Finland.

Green Side Tables

Love these two green side tables, I kinda like the idea of a drinks table/trolley, seems rather grown up.

Friendly Beaches

Some more photographs from the weekend. We were in search of waves, well Matt I was quite happy to wander the beach and take pictures. It's such a beautiful part of the world the east cost of Tasmania. The light changed so much just in the few hours we were there, initially a lovely soft grey then brilliant blue when the sun came out.

This Weekend

After a loooong work week, this weekend we headed to the east cost for a short break. Amazingly we got lovely winter sunshine, a hint of blossom on the trees, simple pancakes and some time to rest.

A Collection

I have a weakness, a weakness for tea towels! It's true, I keep these aside from everyday use, preferring to use them for Island Menu posts (yes I will get a new post done soon!). It seems frivolous really but I like them all so much, they make me happy.

July as instagrammed
