25 May 2011

A day in the life: 25.05.11

The threads:
Country Road wool scarf and the best ever Target leather jacket from 3 years ago. It's a little bit Brrrrr today!

The mags:

(above) House Beautiful June 2011 - killer issue, BTW - and (below) IKEA Family Live magazine, choc-full of cute-to-boot homes from around the globe. And better still, it's free! Sign up here for copies delivered straight to your mailbox!

The bed linen:
Castle and Things "have finally succumbed to the many, many, many requests for CASTLE bedlinen in children's single bed style". Happy days. Or, should I say, happy nights!

The sandwich:
Bacon, baby spinach, tomato, mayonaise. And great bread. Gotta have great bread...

The devastation:
On Monday afternoon, I made a cup of tea. Nothing special there. But as I went to return the sugar to the shelf, all 3 of my Samantha Robinson handmade porcelain cups, which I just adore, came crashing down. One survived (surprisingly!). The other two? Not so much...

The scene of the crime:
This is what I have to live with every day of my life - A glorious Bassike store less than a kilometre away from my house, full to the brim with organic jersey basics (hence the name) and a healthy sprinkling of Jerome Dreyfuss handbags (omg). Interior by Akin Creative. So good.

The fashionable DIY:
A bunting crafted from magazine pages? I'm calling it the DIY of the decade (and the ultimate in upcycling!). Via Design Shimmer.

The candle:
Cristina Re does it again - How pretty is this "Jardin de White Lillies" candle? Seriously? Gold gets me every time. It's going straight on my bedside table! Get yours here.

The innovation:
In an Australian first, Australian Good Taste mag has handed over the reigns to its readers, giving them complete control and power to create the June issue. Readers Issue Ambassador Tobie Puttock (aka Jamie Oliver's Aussie best mate) who couldn’t have been more full of praise for the issue and the reader editors’ winter-warming choices: “The food looks absolutely amazing … It’s stuff I would like to eat on a cold winter’s night – comfort food, but it’s also quite elaborate.” The June issue of AGT is on sale now!

  1. Oh Honey..you poor thing..I get so devo when things like that happen to little bitty treasures I love...those Samantha Robinson cups still look repairable...I know its not the same ..but I dont think I could bare to toss them out..perhaps make a mosaic picture frame out of them?

  2. OMG,..those bags! I would give my first born for a leopard print 'carlos' !xx (and would throw my second born in too, if it clinched the deal!)

  3. You and me both, Jane - Net-a-porter have just sold out of them. APPARENTLY. x

  4. OMG! I would've cried bucketloads over the ceramics! Would araldite do the trick?? Sometimes oyu cant even see the join lines with that stuff. Juliax

  5. I have the same jacket! No one ever believes me when I say it's from Target.

  6. Cannot believe that jacket is from Target... the leather looks so soft! and feel your pain about those cups, I've broken many of my most cherished glassware.... just feel like kicking myself when that happens...

  7. What a great post - save the part about your poor mugs! Love your outfit, your sandwich and the botique down the road. Now, what can we do to get Ikea Family Live in the USA???? xx, Whitney
