Bright elephants

heather bailey
I have been a fan of Heather Bailey's gorgeous fresh fabric designs for a while now. So many bright colours and patterns to choose from and inspire you for the warmer weather, that is surely about to hit any day now. There's lots of crafty type goodies on her blog, and you can also get the pattern for these cute elephants on there too. It'd be great to make a few of them and turn them into a mobile for a nursery. Not that i can sew much more than a straight line, but I'd like to give it a go. I would also love a summer dress in some of her fabrics as well.

bali countdown

I have always wanted to go to Bali, but for some strange reason we never have. A quick cheap flight, lazing in the sun with cocktails by a pool, bargain shopping, and massages. What more could you want? Now... I don't know what took us so long! All the resorts we found looked amazing, and after days of trying to pick just one place we decided on this one.

It's called Gending Kedis, and we loved that it is sort of out of the way, quiet and private. That private, that the pool there is all ours! Can you believe it? We are 700m to Jimbaran bay where there are loads of seafood restaurants on the beach to eat at and watch the sun go down. We are only staying for 3 blissful nights, but I actually think the highlight will be going to watch the sunset, and having a cocktail at the Ayana Rock Bar also in Jimbaran. Look at that view!

Now all we have to do is wait until November. There's nothing like an awaiting holiday to get you through the end of winter though, and the countdown is on.

Beautiful garden

gardens
I have to admit, that most of the time i normally skip through the garden section of the home mags i get, seeing as I'm in a unit, in the city, and normally kill every plant I come close to.
But that has all changed now. That was before we had bought a little home with a backyard up in sunny old Miami, on the Gold Coast. So now of course, I'm searching through all my mags again, and the net, trying and get some ideas of what we can do to brighten it up a bit. I found this gorgeous little summer retreat. I don't think it's Ben's style, but.... it's nice to look at.

cheeky monkey

matilda
A bright new print just about to be sent off. The gingham was the customers request to match the bedding and colours in her kids nursery, so i can't take too much credit for this one, but I do love it!
