mmm aesop!

Don't you just love aesop. Brilliantly simple packaging aside, the products are just delicious, almost good enough to eat! And now I have my hands on a little jar of Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream.  Perfect! x

The best tape...

Old Book Washi Paper Tape

Polka Dots Washi Paper Tape 

Mt Washi Paper Tape - Japanese Dots

I bought this Japanese tape from Upon A Fold, late last year, and I am obsessed with it. It's just tape I hear you say. No, it's not! It adds a little extra to what is normally such a boring thing. I loved gift wrapping before and now I love it just a little bit more. Visit the Upon a Fold web site for these little goodies and whole lot more tempting, beautifully designed and made products.

New project... lounge room

So now that our renovation is on hold for a while, I have turned my attention to revamping our lounge room. Tired old leather sofa just doesn't cut it any longer, and rather than wait until after the reno which has no start date, why not pretty up the inside? So, I am going to decorate one piece at a time, with the first being a new sofa. It is the centre piece after all. (and a little obsession if mine). Now, yes I would love one of these from Great Dane Furniture but we are doing this on a budget.... so I am thinking vintage sofa instead. A bit worn, but well loved. I am hunting one down as we speak!
