Yes, yes, it's been a while, but I've finally updated le shop with some more lovely map butterflies. These little guys are very fragile but look kind of awesome on a big wall. One day I'll get the light right in our study to show you how cute they look, but for now, you can admire a slightly blurry photo right here.

Have you seen this lovely blog called Send More Mail? It has made me want to trawl through and find all my old stamps and buy more and, perhaps intuitively, send more mail. Send letters, my blogging friends! Buy old fashioned stamps and stick them to paper and post away!

Photo by our friend Mark
When we were in Dubai, we attended one of my bestie's wedding. He married a lovely British-Indian woman and we all wore saris and had hennaed hands. (I'm the one with the red bangles). It was a most wonderful three days of celebration.

Yes, I snuck out to Dubai for a week. And pre-posted pretty things to distract you! It was for a very good friend's wedding and we had an amazing time. We came across these amazing paper butterflies in Dubai Mall, of all places. In the city of malls, it turns out that the installations are pretty cool, including a ski place and crazy aquarium!

I've just bought a subscription to Parchment Post - a service that sends you six new cards every three months: what a genius idea! I love letter writing, and always make a big effort to try to write at least a letter a week, but I've been falling a bit behind of late. I'm hoping these card work as inspiration and motivation.

I was incredibly lucky to win a competition from the lovely Captain KK - this beautiful Marimekko plate. Even my lone truss tomato looks thrilled to be there. Thank you Captain - it is absolutely magnificent and I smile every time we pass in the kitchen.

I've been meaning to show these photos for ages. Over the New Year, I went to visit a good friend's house down in country Victoria, and visited her favourite local vintage shop, Bacash's Emporium. It used to be a haberdashery store, but upstairs is now a large selection of furniture, bric-a-brac and crockery -it's delicious.I could have bought lots and lots in there: these bottles were amazing, and only a few dollars each.

After a very long hiatus, I've opened up my little Etsy shop. Yes, I know it's been months and months, but here they are: colour-coded backs of stationery, cards, papers, stickers, stamps - these are great if you like writing mail or decorating presents or little cards and labels. They are a paper-lover's dream. (And they ship free in Australia!)
