One of my most beautiful friends has just been nominated for Apartment Therapy’s Best Home Design Blog. Her house is amazing and we share a very common love of things vintage and reinvented.  She has started making and selling some of her own reinvented furniture and has been giving some great tutorials and ideas on how to do things in your own home.

Courtney’s house is beautiful and I am inspired every time I go there.  Even though she has already been noticed by Apartment Therapy, she hasn’t even started to share how cool her house actually is.  She has such great style and is such a beautiful person too. 

Go and have a look at her blog here and you can vote here.

I am such a country girl, but I love going to the city. This is our favourite alley in Melbourne, I could sit here, drink coffee and watch people all day.

I’m so glad that I have had these great reading distractions over the past week.  It sounds too good to be true that a little country school cleaned out their library of all of their old 70’s and 80’s library books and that I was the lucky recipient of pretty much all of them doesn’t it?  About 40 books for a rough $10 (which included a selection of other old things I’d also picked up).  They are such a joy to read.  I don’t specifically remember any of them, but they are my era, so I’m sure they would have graced the shelves of my own little primary school library.  The borrowing pockets and cards at the back of them are awesome and I will be keeping each and every one of the books.

I found my first copy of Peppermint magazine too this week.  It’s obviously not in great demand in the country towns that surround me.  James Clark’s amazing warehouse was the absolute highlight.

Apart from having some nice reading time with the little love of my life, I have been utterly miserable.  The due date for my last pregnancy is nearing and I still have no baby in my tummy.  I had a molar pregnancy when we were last in New Zealand and it is obviously taking a little while for my body too get back into the swing of things.  I do strongly believe that everything happens for a reason though, so we must have another amazing little person that is destined to be a bit further into our future than we planned.  Luckily, I never stay miserable for too long.  We’ve just booked flights back to NZ, leaving in a couple of weeks so it’ll be a nice time to actually enjoy not being pregnant and make the most of the fun that will be had.
