There's nothing that I love more on a Sunday than hanging out in the garden and digging the dirt. Don't you find it such a therapeutic activity? I always feel complete tranquility when I'm getting dirty! And it's extra fun at the moment because the vege patch is flourishing. Yes, it's overflowing with rhubarb, snow peas, lettuce, rocket, broccoli, beetroot. What could be more satisfying hey! And so, this is how I'm going to spend this Sunday - out in the garden, digging up the dirt... Happy Sunday all...

Well, I've spent the morning rummaging through my office - in search of order and the kind of peace of mind that I feel only once I've sorted through all my paperwork (!) - and look at what I've uncovered! It seems like many moons ago now that I was approached by Ebay to put together this time capsule collection. Talk about fun! Ebay gave me a budget (of a few thousand dollars if memory serves) and a small chunk of time (maybe a month) and it was my job to construct a space that was bright, spunky and relevant to the home decor market at that moment which was taken with retro designs and colour ways. And to show that it was possible to design a home directly from Ebay which at that time was still in its infancy in Australia. And this is what I put together! We transformed a studio space into two rooms - dining and lounge (pics to come)- and then invited the media along to showcase our hard work. The result was a great event that generated loads of coverage for Ebay and allowed me to indulge in what I love to do the most - styling beautiful spaces! I was very excited when Ebay flew me to New York the very next year to see what the American designers could come up with. What a treat! Geez, those were the days!

Imagine having a special place to craft and play your days away! Like this gorgeous workroom. What a beautiful, calming space this is - filled to the brim with bits and bobs of creative heaven.... Couldn't you just spend hours here, tinkering around and whiling away the hours....

Oh, I do love a rustic house - those that are timber lined and slightly mismatched! I'm not sure why I'm drawn to such things - perhaps it is their charm and honesty - and the feeling that comes with a house that has lived a long (hopefully happy!) life... Or perhaps it is that this is the type of home that I was born into - and as such they possess a reminiscent kind of appeal. Whatever the reason for it, there's no doubt about it - that if I had my choice it would be rustic over new. And in the country too....
