gifting

Today is my big sisters birthday and to celebrate the occasion- I got me my favorite annual design book!

How sweet am I?!!!

Not just any book you see, its the Andrew Martin Interior Design review -featuring 460 pages of eye popping interior design deliciousness and inspiration.

Referred to around the global traps as ‘the Oscars for the design industry’. I wont dispute.

Its only available in my town for a very short time- once a year, in limited numbers and only from one supplier – I gotta get my hands on it & quick sticks!

and my hands upon I did!

Measuring at nearly 5cm or 2 inches thick -its a no go/too hard for scanning to share the goodness…but rather than totally withholding the oodles of eye candy within, I have taken a couple of crappy snaps to share the love and that will have to do your curiosity until I get around to looking up the websites of the designers featured and showing you some goodies that way.

You were warned in advance – so no petty tut tutting at the quality of  following pictures!!

And still in keeping with the horsey theme…

Tomorrow is my super cute, but not so cute tanties niece’s 4th birthday! Her present is a plum tree.

for real!

She has more than enough toys to play with or not, so fella and I decided to encourage her nature spirit by giving her her very own tree to nurture and look after!

Stay tuned to see how that turns out!

Oh,and happy birthday to you Min!

In Melbourne town right now you cant go to far without having some sort of horseyness image in your face thanks to the Spring racing carnival that has just begun.

So I figure, if you cant beat em, join em!

Many many many more horsey pictures coming your way soon!

Its been a while between posts. Quite a while. So sorry for the trouble that would have occurred if you were holding your breath between postings!

Instead of making excuses for my loooong absence, I shall just proceed…..

Now, once again here at Designalogue blog, the subject of today’s post isn’t the most original or ground breaking subject to the blogosphere, in fact only just last week ever the fabulous  Design Crisis did a post on this very topic – Scattered cluster art walls things. (yes, that IS the technical industry term used!)

But this posting is once again with purpose! The purpose being to show a lovely client of mine just how fabulous cluster walls of all different shapes and sizes can look! (and the double purpose of said lovely client then also feeling confident that its the right choice for her home!)

So, enough of my prattling and on with the eye candy:
