A Different Colour Mix For Xmas.

Crabtree and Evelyn have a lovely ,original take on colours for Xmas

Mixed together with pomegranates and red patterned fabric Xmas trees just perfect for on the Xmas table

Perfect colours in this background
So pretty against the white

Dont you just love this original take using paisley

Looks so beautiful with parcels wrapped in bright pink and the richness of the roses

Would look great with these cute Xmas tree napkin rings from Martha Stewart

So what do you think?

Voila! Aren't They Just So Cute!

Aren't these so cute!
I got them from one of my favourite shops called Veranda.
I so want to make them. All I need is a sweet stamp of a dress.
I have a bird cage and many crowns
Cute for cupcakes or sandwiches
I love this time of year for it's amazing Jacaranda trees.
On a walk just around my sister's corner
Oh such a heavenly view
My wish is to one day have my own Jacaranda tree

My sister's roses are simply stunning at the moment
Her dog Prince!
Hope you've all had a great weekend. Off for coffee with my Mum and son.

Blue and White is Big Time Back!

Blue and white, especially in these deeper more intense tones, are coming back in the spotlight with many people choosing to use them in decorating for accents against the white on white look.
I love how this one mixes many patterns of blue and white allowing an indulgenceof many faves but beautifully offset by the wooden table.

These deeper more vibrant blues are popping up in all the best shops and in cyberspace.
So now those of us who have tucked away our blue and white china can bring them out to shine once again.

Note the natural wood grain mixed with blue and white.

More gorgeous cushions and dinnerware.

This looks so pretty but I can't imagine eating out of those baskets would be very comfortable. Perhaps rattan chargers or placemats would do the trick.

Now this has to be blue heaven. Headboard, bed linen and dress. Now thats my style for sure!

Formal Pools of Loveliness

With the lovely warm weather we are having one can't help but think about the luxury of pools.

My favourite is the simple lines from formal pools

And especially those with fountains
(I love this one!)

Ive drooled over this one for many a year

In France

Anyone for a barbecue?

This is ours still in its early stage but it has grown so much more.

How about this villa for rent in Dubai?

And I still love market umbrellas

Overall I love the simpicity of formal pools and formal gardens.

How about you?

Anyone for a swim?
