I’m going to keep this short and to-the-point… I’m in LOVE with online products and app, and think that you should be too this Christmas!
Think yourself lucky that I’m willing to share my little secrets with you.
What’s more, these amazingly awesome products are made by locals in my region (Geelong & Torquay) and Melbourne. I’ll be giving these presents this Christmas. If you want to as well simply place your order right now online, and have it arrive on your doorstep – could it get any easier?
This birch tree trunk has accompanied us on two house moves…destined to be put to good use ‘one-day’…
That day has now finally arrived. And my husband is thrilled. It was clogging up his garage, apparently.
I have used it as the centre-piece to our new daughter’s nursery (due to arrive in 8 days time).
My dear friend of 25 years, and fellow crafty person Twirling Betty was recently contacted by Master Chef magazine to feature her cake buntings. I am not surprised, because they are simply stunning! Now is the perfect time to share with you the talents of Twirling Betty before she becomes famous and backed-up with orders for her cake buntings.
Twirling Betty is the mastermind behind these unique and ever-so-fun cake banners and buntings that will spruce up a cake for any occasion. If you want to know more, Betty talks about her cake buntings and preparing the photos for Master Chef in more detail in her Twirling Betty blog. I know you are going to love what you see, so if you wish to own one of your own, or have Betty customise one for you, visit her shop on Etsy or Made It (within Australia) to arrange all that.
I have a thing for butterflies at the moment – maybe it has something to do with the current metamorphosis my life is undertaking right now. We have sold our home in the city (Melbourne), and bought a block of land on a golf course, about 800m from the beach in Torquay (all in the one week). Hence the reason I have been a little quite lately.
My husband and I joke that we have brought our retirement plans forward about 30 years – and I can’t think of a reason why we shouldn’t. After all, life is to be lived – isn’t it?
Yes, I did say land (no house – yet!). You will all be blessed with living the exciting experience of designing, building, decorating and landscaping our new home – the next year will be Hey Bernice! on steroids.
Have you ever stopped to notice that almost everything we put on our wall is either square or rectangular?
I love these wall discs, simply because they’re circles … and also because you can change the material if you get sick of it (which is perfect for me – I change my decor with the seasons).
These are ideal for all ages – I gave a set of 3 to 2 nieces for Christmas, one who is 6 months old and the other is a teenager.
Decorating the walls in your home is a very personal thing – it’s like choosing an additional housemate, because you have to live with your decision every day. I found myself being so particular about size, colour and mood of my wall decor that I end up making them myself. The decision to do so is simple, but then I still need my creative inspiration to come from somewhere … and worse still, I need to actually like the result. If you re wanting to start creating your own wall decorations be careful not to find your inspiration from something that is or was ultra fashionable, or it will look dated before you have even finished (unless that is the look are after!). I try to do something that reflects my style, and is different to anything else I have seen – an eclectic mix of many things.
