A safe, dry and imperfect home.


It's been raining allot here in Brisvegas, so I have been entertaining myself by moving a few things around and zooshing up my home a little. I do enjoy fussing about with my latest most favourite decor items! None of it looks quite perfect just yet but hopefully it will soon. I love it when you have finally found the exact look you were after and it is only a matter of time before you find a way to make it completely work. It's a process! Right now, I love these vintage books that were a recent purchase from the "Life line book festival". It was their beach-y blue and green shades that I was initially most attracted to however I love their subjects too. One book is named "Good Behaviour", it is all about the importance of good manners, old fashioned style manners... I am raising two little men so I am thinking maybe this book could come in handy or NOT we shall see. 

Is it raining where you are too? I do feel very sad for all of those people affected by floods yet again; it must be very heart breaking to walk in their shoes. I feel very lucky and blessed to be fussing around my safe, dry and imperfect home. xx

Hi Tina, thankyou, we are high & dry! Funny that wooden chest has grown on me too. Love where it sits on our living room. Have a lovely day! Rach xx

It's looking lovely Rachel. I can't believe how much rain we got. Glad it's over for the moment.

Hello, I just stumbled onto your blog via your Instagram. That white painted box really is good. Love it. I've never been a fan of these chests but you've got me itching to look for one to attack on gumtree now. x
