a small shopping spree...

shopping and me... well we have a lovely relationship. so ask me to spend $200 on etsy and what would i buy?? let me show you...

a little festive cheer :: october is not too early for decorations, right?!

a letterpress necklace :: recycled from old type-writers, i love the romance of having something as simple as some initials mean something significant to me. j & r. forever...

i live by this :: keep calm and carry on poster in yellow

and while we're at it i'd buy this for my mum :: she needs some de-clutter encouragement! (don't we all...)
a big bunch of amy butler fabric :: one day i am going to make a damn good looking quilt.
i am. just watch me

and finally... this 1950s spring frock :: cute, much?!

Wanna join in the fun?? check out blog this
[ok so i went over by one lousy little dollar... but who's counting?!]

this week i...

here's a few little things to tell you about my week.

this week...

...was a much better week than last week.

you know when everything goes wrong? that was last week. so this week was like a breath of fresh air!

...finally got rid of some dust in my house.
after most of birdsville's dust seemed to deposit itself in brisbane (namely, OUR HOUSE!), serious action was needed! so there was a lean-mean-dust-cleaning-frenzy happening at out place. josh and i got into it in a pretty spectacular way. isn't it amazing how clean floors and a dust-free table can make you feel?? some vintage office Lark mugs in the mail!
thanks to Real Living who published a few pics of my piano room :)

...i am starting to get excited about christmas!!
and i think i need to buy some wall decals to celebrate!
a partridge in a pear tree?? so kitsch!

wall decals :: The Wall Sticker Comany

...i won a giveaway at funky fabrix!!
get excited, peoples! this is my first blog-giveaway-win.
let the summer-sewing-frenzy begin!!

what has your week been like??
