The thing about weekends is that they go too bloody quickly. One minute I'm zoning out on the train, having a few lols with Hamish and Andy and planning the two glorious days ahead, the next I'm hoisting myself out of bed, bleary-eyed and oh so desperate for just a... Continue reading

LOOK AT HER! Be still my beating heart! Is she not just the sweetest, fluffiest little thing you've ever seen? I came across this little dear on Gumtree earlier this week. I was laying in bed, unable to move a great deal due to having stepped on a nail a... Continue reading

Lately I've been coming across a whole bunch of faux crystal glass dishes super cheap at op shops. I eventually decided to grab a few and glam them up a with a little huff of spray paint. They came out kinda pretty! Only wish I had more different coloured spray... Continue reading

I have to say, I'm really loving this little post! There's something quite majical and unique about the colour pallates in old story books. This one is expecially fantastic. Just imagine skipping sown the street in this little outfit! Such fun. This weeks book is: Time For Adventure by Nila... Continue reading

So I've been testing my dexterity more lately with some super pretty and slightly trickier origami. These unit origami pieces would make brilliant gift boxes I think. So cute and colourful! What do you think? For all patterns see Origami Club. Continue reading

Summer time is just starting to peak its hot little head around the corner here in the lovely land of Sydney, so I thought I'd make a playlist for you all to celebrate! Miss Cate has also requested that I mention she assisted in the creation of the above playlist.... Continue reading

As I write this today my dear little fluffy pal, Danger, is napping. She's currently confined to only the top level of her hutch becuase her fluffy little belly is recovering from her adventure to the vet earlier this weekend... yep, she got spayed. I'm hoping that once she has... Continue reading

They're something magical about the illustrations in old storybooks, and from time to time the colour stories can just blow a gal away. At least that's how I felt when I flicked through this Dr Seuss book in an op shop the other day. That's when I got an idea.... Continue reading

It's Monday, the supposed beginning of yet another week. Hurrah! Lucky for me this week is only 4 days long and ends with a lovely 3 day weekend, can't wait! To help me get through the week I'm pretty much listening to this song on repeat. If you haven't heard... Continue reading

You may or may not have noticed that I've got a bit of a "thing" for Japanese culture lately, and I can tell you that I've had a bit of a "thing" for Origami since first being taught in primary school, I think perhaps by my Dad who was studying... Continue reading

It's been a while, but over the past weekend I finally had a chance to go thrifting again! Hurrah! Huzzah! Kaboom! Here are all the pretty things I picked up for an absolute steal: The prettiest kitty ever, and a snobby little poodle. GORGEOUS ceramic canisters. Super 70s style egg... Continue reading

After this little post about my beloved bunny Danger I thought it might be nice to share with you all the somewhat unique idiosyncrasies of Miss Cate's canine BFF, Pilot. He's a particularly beautiful Kelpie X Dingo. Yep, dingo. Do a quick google image search of this breed and you'll... Continue reading

Apricot Delight has long been one of my favourite snacks, all sweet and apricotty - but the stuff from the shops tends to be chocka block full of preservatives and chemicals. So when I came across this brilliant recipe I got pretty excited about giving it a go. It's super... Continue reading

As Dads go, mine's pretty great... Just don't tell him I said so. Certainly not the most emotional man in the world, he's at his happiest pottering around the garden, chilling out at the beach, or fiddling with one of his many guitars whilst watching TV in his St George... Continue reading

In the past whenever I've seen promo for Floriade Festival I pretty much just assumed that it was a festival for nannas. I could picture all the blue rinses on their zimmer frames shuffling through display after display of roses and tulips... All giddy with joy and somewhat overstimulated by... Continue reading

Remember yesterday when I told you that wearing pretty knickers makes you feel extra special? Well that got me thinking, which got me shopping. Well, window shopping. I have a bit of a thing for colourful retro knickers, and there's a whole heap of them on Etsy these days. Here... Continue reading

I may have mentioned last week that I've recently started a new job. It's nice, I'm enjoying having a daily routine and certainly enjoying the fattening of my little wallet, but I do get yelled at a lot. Not by my boss, not by my co-workers, but by the customers.... Continue reading

This past Sunday Miss Cate and I decided to forgo our standard Sunday fare of relaxation, puppies and corn fritters at the Marrickville Markets and instead ventured over the bridge to visit our respective families. Here are a few photos that I snapped along the way, from the Central Coast... Continue reading

Remember on Monday when I told you that I got a new job and treated you to some loverly music? Yes? No? Well, pretend you do. The point of this memory is that said new job will, in the not so distant future, mean that I am no longer so... Continue reading

Okay, "should" may be a bit of a stretch, but it has a better ring to it that "might perhaps like to know". Point is, when I first told friends that I was planning to get me a lil' bunny friend, a common response was "But they don't do anything.... Continue reading
