Let's get real!

It's not too late for a New Year's resolution is it?
Instead of half arsing 2 blogs I think it's time I get realistic and merge my personal blog and my Bits & Bubs blog.
Who was I kidding? Lately I havn't had time to post regularly on 1 blog let alone 2!
So here is the plan; a new look blog with a new banner, regular posting, regular store updates, and of course I will have to celebrate my new found organisation and commitment (ahem) with a competition once the new look has been completed. So, what do you think?
Hopefully my laptop will be back in my very eager hands soon so I can get moving (she has taken a trip to the computer doctor as she refuses to open for me, and of course I keep meaning to back up but...)!

Hi Ho Silver, away!

I have never been partial to horses. They smell, are too big and scary and that pig-rooting thing they do totally freaks me out.

Now these little horses on the other hand are way more my style.
Seriously- are they not the most divine vintage looking hobby horses you have seen?

You can find more items from Calamity Bolt on here.

First Day of School!

Probably the one thing I did love about the first day of school was the scheduling, arranging desks and gathering the school supplies. Highlighters, sheafs of loose leaf paper, folders, pens, pencils, erasers...
Oh and the smell! Heaven be stationary store.

Yesterday was my first day back at "school" (as a teacher that is) and I am feeling motivated to get my life organised. Schedule my week into managable routines so I can get everything done and nothing (or no-one is neglected), organise my workspace (yes, it still hasn't been done) and get up to date with my large pile of filing, oh and a cute calander and diary to keep track of lifes appointments and goings-ons of course!

A trip to officeworks for basics and smiggle for cute things is on the cards I do believe.

It's a beautiful morning...

love this idea- using fabric swatch portraits as mini noticeboards.

broaches aren't just for your nana!

Saturday morning the boy and myself relished in a sunny, lazy child free breakfast in a cafe by the beach, people watching, sipping frothy cappachinno, munching eggs bennedict while reading multiple issues of Frankie magazines. Total and utter bliss.

Sadly, today is my last day off before I go back to work after 2 weeks off. And what a beautiful day to end on- absolutely perfect cloudless skies. The question is, do I stay home and organise the house, tidy, sort, wash and get ready for the week or do I get outside and lap up my last day off sunning and lazing down at the beach?

note to self: order subscription to Frankie magazine...
