Beautiful Bedsides and a weekend in Brisbane


Good morning! hope you all had a great weekend. I know it's Tuesday already but I had a 4 day (well 3.5 day weekend) away in Brisbane with good friends so I'm only getting back into the swing of things now. We had some frequent flyer points so Phil suggested I fly up to Brisbane and stay with friends of ours. It was so good to slow down and catch up.


My friend Lara is a real domestic goddess so we baked bread, cooked, drank coffee (and champagne) and wandered around antique shops. I loved it all.

I'm in love with Lara's pantry.






 Lara bakes her own sourdough several times a week and sells it to a few friends - how professional does it all look.

I was also taken to lunch on the river by my good friends Cath and Dan which was glorious. So good to catch up with good friends and sit in the sunshine and chat. And I also caught up with another long time friend, Jenny. A really special weekend.

I also wanted to share some beautiful bedside tables I painted last week. I painted them in layers of whites for a soft muted look. I'm really happy with this old European look although I was rushing to photograph and they have already sold so I haven't taken the best photos that show the finish.

I'm back into it all this morning and loads of work on my plate. Such a good problem to have :) 
Have a great week
