New chevron doona cover

I've been on the lookout for a new doona cover for my sons room for some time and I just couldn't go past this chevron quilt cover from Target . I bought the double for my teenagers bed and I'm so impressed with the quality, the underside is gorgeous too with a lovely pale grey chevron .I love it .And at $30 for the double with $9 postage it was a great price too .Its called the Ryder and it did sell out quickly although I have noticed some of the other quilts that sold out are back in stock so keep your eyes peeled.

A corner of my home

Hello there ..

Here is a spot in my living room that I don't think I have shown previously , the TV is pretty huge I know and some people don't like them much , and thats ok. Living here with three males in the house there is normally someone wanting to watch something in the evening, actually lately it seems to be me taking over the box in this house with" the block" on every night and" offspring "aswell once a week.So anyway this is where ours is and I'm really happy with how this corner is looking , what do you think?

For a closer look at the lamp its the cockatoo lamp from have you met miss jones .

Its actually quite hard to get a decent shot of this area , what with the reflection of the TV and please excuse all the cords and the Wii ....just keeping it real.

I don't have any tattoos ...I'm very indecisive ...its not uncommon for me to have a sleepless night over choosing what colour to get the new clock in the kitchen (yes I actually did that this week)and I only had to choose between black or silver!!I know and then when I decided I thought I still made the wrong decision. Yep that's me, so it makes sense that I shouldn't do anything really permanent like a tattoo. BUT if I was going to get one I'd get this one. How cool is it.

Thinking about cushions

Lately I've been thinking a lot about new cushions. Is it winter that does this ...the need to cosy up and add some colour to our dreary days.
I'm loving this one
Mandalay Cushion AquaIts from my favourite local shop Nest Emporium, seriously this shop is so good if you are ever down this way (Thirroul) you need to check it out, and of course they have an online shop too. So anyway I'm thinking a couple of these babies on the bed.
Also I just bought this one last night on made it to go in the 10 year olds room and it was only $15 ...I know so cheap! And that was with the insert too. His room is having a massive clean out! Out with the toy box and about 10 tonnes of plastic/battery less toys and in with some cool things like the cushion.
And I'm thinking maybe one of these also from nest emporium
Industrial Letters
Except his will be a N (Noah)
Also have painted a wall with chalkboard paint too so its all coming together .You might remember this blanket that I made it is his too so that will be in there.Do you get the need to change things around in winter too, spring clean /chuck out?

Love poster

I finally got around to framing my LOVE poster by Jen Ramos of MadeByGirl. I know you have probably seen these everywhere but you have to admit they are pretty fantastic and don't you just love the red. I am really trying to be adventurous with colour. I would never have chosen red in the past so this is big for me .The fabric panel behind the bed is Marimekko and I've had it for a few years and it was the first bit of colour I actually let come into my house, took me about a year to stop looking at it and couldn't decide if I loved it or hated it.Now I love it. And the gorgeous home sweet home cushion is from Aunty cookie

And just before I go look what I found at a garage sale on the weekend , isn't she lovely . I couldn't leave it there when someone had obviously put so much work into painting it , and it was only $15 ..I know bargain.
 Here is a close up ...I wonder who she is?
Sorry the last shot was a bit blurry and I couldn't be bothered getting another.

Check out my awesome golf ball lamp.

So the other day I was out shopping and saw this cute little lamp for the bargain price of $20 and I thought it would look sweet in the bedroom , so took it home and quite pleased with my little bargain lamp I had it sitting in the lounge room when teenage son came in and commented on my 'golfball lamp'!!! What! What golf ball ? It doesn't look anything like a golfball ! And then I took my rose coloured bargain shopping glasses off and does kinda look a bit like a golfball. But I seriously had not seen a golf ball before he mentioned it .And like father like son , hubby came home and he liked the 'golfball lamp' too. Oh Bugger.
Anyway just thought I'd show you a few other awesome and rather stylish golfball lamps too.

Wow real golf

Golfballs and fake grassy stuff in a jar lamp, awesome

 Giant realistic looking golfball lamp , a personal fave.
 Funky green and white chandelier , I am so getting one of these babies.
Simple and stylish with an actual golf green and golf stick, makes me want to take up golf.

And a matching pair of ginormous golf ball lights...umm...bedside tables??

So well yeah ....things could be worse.

PS If you do own a lamp like these please don't take offense ...each to their own I guess.
