A few lovely things...

I thought it might be fun to share a few lovely things 
around our home today...

It's spring time here which means my favourite flowers, peonies and hydrangeas, are in bloom. 
I love how they instantly add cheer to a room.

Slowly starting to decorate our home for Christmas, I found these pretty decorations from Papaya.

I have so much glossy reading to catch up on over the weekend 
which I am rather looking forward to.

I was the lucky eBay winner on this fab plaited leather shopper from Zara which was new with tags!

I found these brass beauties from our local Vinnie's shop for $1 - the best dollar I have spent.

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends celebrating 
today with your nearest & dearest!
