Burleigh, Byron and Bangalow

Isn't this a great idea! It's a decorative timber cutout above a doorway at the 'Balcony' in Byron Bay. We went there for a quick coffee, which led to dinner... then wine... then dessert. Hee Hee.

We visited some of our friends in Byron Bay who were also escaping Melbourne's cold weather. We were obsessed with their cute little dinning room in the house that they were renting. Lots of windows and an abundance of dappled light.

Oooooooh we loved the Gold Coast Antique Warehouse with all of it's little treasures. I fell in love with this little bamboo tea set.

I spotted some stunning bird wallpaper in the shop 'Lazy Bones', and was desperate to get a roll to cover my walls but unfortunately it was sourced as an off cut off the Internet! We did however buy ourselves a few summer dresses from 'Lazy Bones' in preparation for our summer in Victoria...hopefully sunshine and sparkling warm coastal waters will appear soon!

We jetted off for a quick break north for some much needed sunshine. And of course QLD and Northern NSW did not disappoint. This is a quick snap of my unsuspecting mum looking very gorgeous and tropical about to order us a coffee in Bangalow. My goodness what a beautiful and inspiring little town this is!

Stage 2- The Building of My Island Home

Just wanted to give you an update on how the house is going.. and yes we now have walls! The next exciting stage after the flooring was laid was the frames being assembled and put into place. And oh my goodness on that day the rain did fall and fall and fall. A huge thankyou to the very talented lads and my gorgeous hubby and rastous (our once white spoodle) who worked tirelessly on this day.

Bayside Style the morning after!

What a wonderful day we had yesterday with all of the other stallholders at Bayside Style. We were really pleased to be able to showcase some of our range and meet lots of new customers. It was a long day but it was great to meet lots of other businesses and share ideas. I'm sure the day would have been a great success for Open FamilyAustralia.

A special mention to Mel from Pursells Provisons - I am really enjoying my Rhubarb, raspberry and vanilla bean jam this morning, what a way to start the morning YUMMY. Thanks also to Nancy from Bon Remede, the body lotion smells heavenly!
