Guess what!?

All three of John Green's books will be arriving, at my house, in 7 - 10 days!!!!! And as you can tell by my already aggrevating use of exclaimation marks, I am unbelieveable excited!!!!! :D
You should definitely check out his blog, the youtube channel he shares with his brother and his books. DFTBA.

Nice Shoes.

Currently inspired by natural woodgrains, nature and simplicity. I'm probably breaking some blogging rule by reposting these, but I find them so fascinating and lovely. From Bmjnyc's etsy.

perfectly imperfect

I am quite fond of raedunn's simple ceramic works. Each natural and unique.

Kelli Jo

Kelli Jo's Flickr page has some lovely images which transport me to my favourite old-time European fairytale.

DIY ruffle belt

I'm pretty sure your next outfit needs some more ruffles. Luckily, 100 Layer Cake has kindly provided us with a tutorial on how to make one of these lovely ruffle belts. How wonderful.

Ginny and Ed

I know this did the blog rounds a while ago, but I still find the photographs from this 20s themed wedding simply stunning. The little capelet is gorgeous (I'm planning on making one as soon as I find some time) and the colours are so lovely. I never really thought theme weddings could work (especially after seeing 27 dresses) but this simply stunning.

Rose and Ruby

Ever since I was little I've wanted to have a business selling somthing I'd made. Clothing, photography, hand crafts, flowers, artwork, it didn't matter what it was. Just so long as it was beautiful, I'd made it and people wanted to buy it. I always wanted a name with the words 'ruby' and 'rose' however I was prepared to settle with 'Chloe', 'lace' or 'pearl'. Then I discovered Rose and Ruby. I'm saddened that Rose and Ruby stole my name, but it really couldn't have gone to a more lovely company. (I secretly knew it would be gone, even before I googled it.) I am in love with their romantic designs and especially adore their slik flowers. They source fine french lace and design for the woman who is modern, sophisticated and effortlessly chic. They base their designs on elegance, romance and beauty. It relly sounds like the wonderous design house of heaven to me. *sigh* If only...


I've had my eye on these lovelies by Lucy Hope for a while now. I really love the colours of the first and the hair all together is too cute. I was reminded again of these after some more flipping through the latest Frankie Magazine. You can purchase these as cards from Leeloo.

Georgie Love

It is true that I do all of these things. I especially dream of Paris and I want to live in Chile because Philosophy is part of the national school curriculum there. I also do love tea parties, oh so lovely. I suppose I heart all three of these thing equally. It's just my luck that I stumbled across these in the latest issue of Frankie Magazine. Pretty vintage fabrics and all, these are made by the lovely Sophie Isobel of Georgie Loves. Find these three here, here and here.

Natural Romance

One, Two, Three.

By the way, number one is cast from a twig found in central park. How lovely.



The outside life is so much more interesting

I've been cooped up inside working and doing school work for so long. I'm nearly finished though. I can't wait to got outside and do somthing.

Ma Boy's Illustration Blog

These lovely images are from Ma Boy's Illustration Blog which posts illustrations by two tallented boys named Daniel (age 8) and Israel (age 9). I think this is both cute and totally inspiring. These boys obviously put a lot of care into the detail of these illustrations. As far as I can tell they have a theme each week and come up with different interpretations in the form of an illustration. I really like how they use different mediums too, instead of simply sticking with paper anc coloured pencils. My favourites are the little birdie who says that wearing your seatbelt is safe and the walrus/seal (I'm not great with names of any sorts, haha) which illustrates the theme of 'Fat'. Wonderful.
