Feeling a bit like aqua...

Love me some Fender green, always one of my favourite guitar colours!

Uber cute aqua Swedish clogs...

This kitchen aid mixer is Martha Stewart aqua I think, she says that you can't have a kitchen without one.


A super cute scooter to go with those Swedish clogs...

and the gorgeous selection of Bison ceramic tea cups on a Marimekko tea towel in our house.
  Yep, loving me some aqua goodness!

Scooting around...

I came across this super cute scooter via the Martha Stewart website (yes, I am obsessed with her!) but I have to say that the website that is selling the scooter also has LOADS of other uber cute things too!  You definitely should check out Reform School Rules for lots of sweet products too.


I probably am addicted to old school bikes and really need to purchase myself something that is boring and practical to ride around.  However I can totally see myself in a cute Marimekko dress and clogs, scooting around with all sorts of delicious goodies in my basket. Well actually, I'm not sure if you could scoot in clogs, maybe you'd have to wear ones that have a back strap but you're getting the image right?!

So, if anyone feels inspired to get me this, feel free!

New Black and White dress creation...

Full dress

If you are a longtime reader of this blog you will know that I love me some bold prints!  I also love Marimekko fabric and its cheaper cousin Ikea fabrics.  I needed a 'statement' dress for a function at the MCC so I whipped up this baby.  Well actually some parts were already made, such as the pin tucked front panel that had been sitting there for a little while but I got inspired and made some alterations.

New dress

I added a bell/wide type sleeve which is quite dramatic.  Also I think the best accessories for this are black patent leather, so I added a black patent leather cinch belt, wedge shoes and patent leather clutch!  I love the graphic nature of the pattern and really, you can't go wrong with black and white!
You can check out the dress on Burdastyle if you're on there too!

Crazy for Clogs...

I think that my clogs suit our retro kitchen tiles!

Clogs seem to have returned as a fashion hit item of late.  Yes, I have jumped on the bandwagon too but they are super comfortable and when it comes to shoes I'm really all about comfort.  The lovely Sofia at Nord Living started to stock Ugglebo Clogs, which come in a great range of styles and colours.

I ordered these super cute ones in pewter, metallic leather and I can't stress how comfortable they are!  The only problem is that I want more!  So if you hear a wooden clomping sound, you know that it is me!

More Matryoshkas...

Matryoshka wall detail

My lovely friend/sista Shannon got me these awesome matryoshka wall details.  They are like vinyl stickers that stick to the wall and are pretty easy to install and remove too.  I think that they came from Typo?  Anyway, if you're a long time reader of this blog, you will know my love of all things matryoshka so I was quite pleased to receive this little gift!

At first I wasn't sure where to pop them but they have ended up in on our toilet wall!  Weird? Maybe but definitely cute!

Matryoshka self portrait

And here is me trying to insert myself into the matryoshka frame!  My pal Silje does some super cute matryoshka drawings too.  Check out her blog for more info!

Apparently I am wowed by whiskers...

Wowed by Whiskers
click on the image to make bigger to read!

Over my many years of being a curator, I have had to pose for newspapers and magazines with artwork.  I've become quite used to what I like to call the 'curator pose', it involves either the stroking of the chin in deep thought, pointing out an important part in a work or holding something in white gloves!

It's quite funny really and I would like to think that my posing style is somewhere between a kmart catalogue and Antiques Roadshow.  I guess that it's a look I've perfected over the years.  Yes, it's my Zoolander.  By the way if you haven't seen the exhibition Beardo, it's on until the 18th December!
