Pretty Ballerina

I found this pretty ballerina picture over the weekend at a second-hand shop for not a lot of money. The only problem is I'm a bit stuck on how to frame it. Any ideas?

Also head over to Maiden Luxe to read my top fashion picks for the last decade. I had a lot of fun doing this, thanks for the invite Mia!xx

Room with a View

I finally finished my mini window seat project for my study. This used to be my son's toy box but with a coat of white paint and some colourful cushions, I turned it into a great spot to sit and enjoy the garden view.

Ships Ahoy!

I love this mini cluster art wall my sister in-law has done for my nephew's room. The frames were picked up from op shops and painted a gloss black and she then placed pictures from vintage books and cute fabrics in the frames. But my favourite is the oil painting of the ship which she salvaged from an op shop for $4 and simply painted the frame. Perfect!

Beautiful Blooms

I got my first bunch of hydrangeas from my plant which I have been nuturing from a baby for the last 18 months. They have pride of place in my lounge room and look gorgeous. These blooms are my all time favourite flower, they remind me of my Nan's garden when we were kids. Here are some of my favourite images where hydrangeas feature.
