The Flavour Thesaurus

I'm back today from celebrating the wedding of a dear friend and her lovely man. I saw this book some time ago and thought it would be the perfect present for a big-time foodie: it's all about how two different flavours go together, much like two people in a marriage.

Happy Floral Friday!

This bunch of flowers made me really excited for the weekend. Love those white spheres which look like mini posies themselves. Wonderful.

A Family of Meercats

Adorable! Love the colour scheme of this, and am imagining a black and white room with highlights of red and aqua, too.

Potato Prints

I love these prints that Jordan's done. Simple, effective and very, very pretty.

(And a special shout-out to Rebecca, who I met yesterday. She recognised me from this here ol' blog and it totally made my week!)

Make up pouch

I did a screenprinting course back in May, and had some leftover fabric that I made. I love the pattern so much, and finally had a chance to make a small pouch. I lined it with pale pink fabric and am really happy with how it turned out. Feels good to be making things again!

Lavender at home

Picked some lavender from my grandparents' garden the other day and it's been brightening up a little shelf in our house. Such pretty flowers and they seem to be lasting for ages, which is an unexpected bonus.

Seoul Photos II

The Shilla Hotel
Another batch of my photos from Seoul. Gosh it is such a wonderful city: if you're thinking of heading to Asia, I would really consider think about including a visit to Seoul. It certainly made me want to head back there and see more of Korea.
Adorable cafe #290, MyeongDong
The wonderful MMMG store in MyeongDong, including my afternoon tea of watermelon juice and banana cake below.

Just loving this room. Love that all the different colours, shapes and styles don't seem to compete with each other, and just happily co-exist.

Map Collages

Spotted these beautiful map collage sheets which you can print for free. Amazing for cards, wrapping papers, stickers and general map-love.

The wonderful Caroline Hadilaksono made these beautiful Harry Potter-inspired vintage-style travel posters. How perfect for today - the Australian release of the film. I can hear the theme music now...

Design Attractor

I've really been loving these images from Design Attractor: they are warm, playful and interesting in different ways. I'm very much drawn to these rooms, and they feel like they could be home.

Seoul Photos I

Some vintage ceramics sold at markets in Insadong
I was lucky enough to head to Seoul for a week last month and am only finally getting around to posting some phone photos now. It was a wonderful trip: such a bustling and diverse city - I loved it even more than I thought I would. I'll post more as I cull through them all.

Wall Shelf

This Urban Outfitters shelf with drawers is both lovely and also only for people who can drill holes into their walls. Alas, one day I shall own a house and put nails everywhere. Just 'cause I can.

This desk set is just perfect. It makes me want to get rid of everything I own and buy wooden lovelies. Which could be problematic, I guess...

Teacup Collections

Adore this little shelf. Just adore everything about, including the little teacups.
