This week I am...

Looking forward to this...


Reading this...

And you can too with the Meet Me At Mikes bookclub

Watching this... (Anne is so pretty and Gilbert is so dashing!)

Waiting to buy this...
Poppies For Grace

Wishing I could afford these too...

Also at Poppies For Grace

And thinking about making some of these...


What are you up to?  Do tell!


  1. Love the writing paper. I also have a fondness for lovely paper.
    I must put Anne further up on my list to read.

  2. ohhhh are you on Pip's reading group? I was soooo tempted to join, especially reading Anne, I so love Anne and Gilbert.

    This week for me is study and work, but it's all good, school holidays next week and I can't wait.

    Have a great week.

  3. Alison - They ARE so pretty. I am a hoarder of nice paper! I have to remind myself constantly to use it.
    Joyce - Yes I am! The last time I read it was 1987 (when I bought it - I think the series was on television at the time too) I got so excited about it that I read it straight through from cover to cover within a weekend. So now I'm re reading it, somewhat more slowly!

  4. Lots of lovely things there! I have that edition of Anne too!

    I have tagged you for The Versatile Blogger award over here cause I love your blog!

  5. I love Nat Perkins works...she did a great job on the finders keepers poster.

  6. Aw Shucks, Allana, thanks! I don't know what to say...

    I didn't know about Natalie Perkins until I saw this poster and I was chuffed to find out that she's a fellow Brisbane-ite. It's great that local talent was used to promote a local event. And what a talent it is! For anyone who would like to check out more, have a gander at

  7. I have no words, no words!

    I just answered my door wearing my boyfriend's ugly old jumper and my pyjama pants and a parcel delivery man handed me over one of the prettiest little parcels I've ever seen. I knew if the exterior was anything to go by it was going to contain something lovely and it SO did. Thank you so, so very much :D I had been Etsy browsing late last week for an appropriate letter holder (mine is very ugly and simple and from Officeworks) and it seems the universe delivered :D It is gorgeous and I am dreaming of all the collagey things I can put your beautiful paper bits into.

    I have this horrible habit of replying to my mail chronologically, but I am definitely going to fast track a little package for you and fill it with some goodies.

    It was a total pleasure to receive your parcel and a delight to hear from you! It's put a smile on my face for the rest of the day - not even the awful weather today could dampen it (think gale-force winds, icy-cold air and temperamental rain). I will get onto writing a letter to send back asap!

    I hope your day has been as lovely as mine so far :D

    PS. I have spotted that Poppies for Grace stationery in a Launceston shop - isn't it gorgeous?!
