Sunday session 23.11.14

Wow I have had a week PACKED full of exciting new furniture and products and people!. That always happens to me… Just when I thought I had everything all squared away and  I’m sitting here hoping for a relatively quiet week (as it’s a short week for me) so I completed all my work in a big hurry and was about ready to set off for a long weekend and then all of a sudden all these interesting extra little things popped up . Anyway I find I am very easily excited by people who make things so I am happy to have come across this stuff but really…the timing could have been better. Like these good arty folk Black Crow Contemporary Art  who popped up in my inbox in a splash of colour and cheerfulness. These pieces are Australian made and very well priced so worth a look if this is your kind of thing.

Desert horses, my aunty is horsey she would love this piece

“Mexican dance” this one is called- though if i was naming this piece I would’ve called it “Desert horses”…my aunty is horsey she would love this one

are you into abstract art? I generally am NOT but that’s because I grew up around art and I mean LOTS of art.. you could say I am slightly overstimulated by art so whenever I see an abstract I tend to frown , curl my lip up on one side and screw my nose up a little bit and think ‘I could totally do that and HOW much it is??’ but then I never actually do it so I am a horrid art critic who should stick to swilling the free champagne and keep my opinions to myself.

I do however like this piece- it is called ‘Jewels in the sky’ A limited edition Australian artwork from my new mates at Black Crow contemporary art

I am having a little obsession with this local Darwin company called Little Skygarden, these ladies sell the most adorable pieces of glass and I very much want ALL of them. Infact I am going to get some to hang in my kitchen window sill above my recycled ‘just perfect’ piece of timber that I still haven’t found yet. Hint hint- it is my birthday soon and I want lots of these teraniums.

I think I can manage to keep air plants and a few succulents alive …. this time,  despite 2 failed attempts at air plants thus far.

Bet you never thought to use an old bike wheel for this huh? Me neither but I will be tasking my brother with finding me one of these now. Or I spose I could just rip the wheel off my own bike seeing as I never use that… other than to hang the doormat on while I sweep the patio.

The Bold Collective  These guys…well, girls actually do some amazing work and look like they would be a lot of fun to be around in general.

This is just 1 of the many fitouts done by the Bold Collective- seriously cool stuff these guys do..yes they are milk crates you are looking at

INTRODUCING The hot new ‘Belle Epoque chairs – BRAND NEW into Australia from Italy … what can I say, these chairs are very lady like and lovely and quirky and just ….so me. I would team these hot little babies with a chunky timber table and we would live happily ever after together hosting outrageous dinner parties.

This table with above chairs- love it!

Brand new from Hive lighting- The Limbo pendant light. Personally I would have made those candle style thingos illuminated spheres as I think that would suit the figure better whereas the candles detract from it but that’s just me. This light is so new that I can’t even find anything to link it to as noone is talking about it – yet. Remember- you saw it here first.

On a personal note I have been doing some research on vintage wedding ideas and found this 1930’s style wedding shoot  and a quirky rustic styled wedding that both really appeal to me (weddings can be so boring and same same but these are nice and unique)….a little planning for the new year maybe. Oh who am I kidding I need years to plan a wedding I am useless with organising things for myself, I should stick to doing projects for other people instead. Oh and yes, I want that ballerina style ring obviously.
