Seahorse Treasure

I was sooooooo excited when my 'island' hubby came home from surfing on the weekend with this beautiful and amazing seahorse. He stumbled across it getting out of the surf on a bed a dried kelp! What an amazing find, I still can't believe it. I am always searching when ocean beach walking and I have never ever come across anything like this.
I placed this beautiful creature on top of my framed red sea fan to photograph. (Sorry the picture isn't very clear!)
I think I should get the coral glass tray to match!   island collections

Happy beach fossicking!

Sail away on a Pirate Ship

Things have been really busy around here with lots of deliveries arriving this week.  The warehouse needs reorganising to make way for all of our new goodies.  Look what arrived today, the most gorgeous Wooden Pirate ships.  Whilst at the Trade show in Melbourne we were so taken with these beauties that we thought we'd give them a try.  They are the perfect toy for a nautical inspired childrens room.  What we love about this piece is that this is one toy that you wont throw out,  you will be holding onto this treasure for many years to come.

Divine shell bathroom

Whilst spring cleaning some files off my computer I stumbled across this absolutely beautiful picture.  I must have filed this ages ago so unfortunately cannot remember where I found it.  How stunning is this room!! I love every element of the room, the tiny pearlised mosaic tiles, the clam shell washbasin and the decadent cabinet that it sits upon... enough said, SO divine!

Saturday Afternoon High Tea

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, sipping tea and savouring delicious delights!  Today we showcased some of our range at a fundraiser High Tea for the YCW Football Club and the McGrath Foundation.  There certainly was a buzz in the air as the champagne and conversation flowed.  We met so many lovely ladies.  Many thanks to Jess (Blisque Salon, Mt Eliza) for organising the event, the day was a real success. xx
