I love the humour of vintage advertising. So much in fact I have a flipbook That's Queen Bitch to You that looks right at home in my retro kitchen, and turn the pages regularly to show the next hit the bitchy humour and domestic incorrectness! Highly recommend to anyone with a quirky sense of humour ....

Beaufort Street in Highgate would have to be one of Perths best shopping strips for finding funky pieces. This weekend I found a few one offs I couldn't resist (and 2 out of 3 were on sale, not bad hey!). I bought an antler style candle holder, all it needs is a rustic fireplace and shaggy rug to feel at home! Some ceramic fruit, about the only fruit-like-thing in my fruit bowl! And an oil burner by Melbourne designer Jennifer Dumet, the design looks stunning when lit and the shadows dance on the wall.
You can find them here:

I watched Sex in the City 2 this week and am subsequently suffering shoe closet envy. Since the first movie Carrie's dream wardrobe has been divided into his and hers (much like myself, having to SHARE a wardrobe for the first time ever!). This pic shows Carrie's most fabulous heels are kept in a glass cabinet on shelves fitted with lights to make them shine in their utmost glory.
Being an Aussie suburbian chick I never thought it could be possible to have something remotely close to that sassy Manhattan showcase .... that was until I started renovating! The plan is to convert the hallway cupboard into my very own shoe haven (squeal!). Thanks Carrie for unleashing my inner shoe-obsessed self from a dream into a reality.

I came across this gorgeous picture and was drawn to the quote thinking those words would be perfect in the bedroom ...
So armed with a blank canvas, some leftover black and grey paint, tracing paper and rhinestones I made this ....

The Nest Home Design Handbook has given me heaps of inspiration. It's full of awesome pictures and ideas to get your creative juices flowing. I couldn't find it in stores so bought it online through Borders for just $25 (subscribe to their newsletter to get discount vouchers). I later discovered The Nest is actually a big name brand in USA and have a stack of books by the same lady, though there mainly about marriage and coo chi coo babies (not my scene!) but the housey books are worth a looksy.
