Winner!

Thankyou, thankyou to all who have entered our first little W&W competition...!
It is lovely to have a big run of 'likes', I must admit...

Now, I've drawn the lucky winner using a random number generator... who is number 12??

Ali!
And the mystery prize??
 A fabulously gorgeous Manifest Destiny candle, available exclusively in Australia through W&W!

We were just tickled pink to receive our shipment this week and are delighted to be able to finally share this simply gorgeous product with you all... they have the most unique and interesting scents and we love the old school feeling that we like to convey with all of our stock...

The entire line will be available in the shop hopefully any day now ... and in the meantime we will happily have the giant box of them providing such a beautiful scent in our house!

Thankyou again, dear friends, for all your support and enthusiasm in our exciting venture... it means the world to both Mum and I xx

Happy Friday!

Sparkle ...

Oh, how I wish I could wear sparkles tomorrow... after all, what Monday doesn't call for a dash of sequins?
Alas, my second year students start in hospital and I'm required to don my boring old nursey uniform instead...
Le sigh ...

PS - the first White and Wander giveaway arrives tomorrow... stay tuned!

Typography ...



Last week I posted this gorgeous hand-drawn Mermaid script and have had numerous requests as to where it could be bought... so, in the interest of research, I have spent the morning trawling through the back links to find the illustrator...
Success! 
This talented bloke is called John Contino, a NY illustrator. Here are some more examples of his work ... I simply adore all of it!

Kitchen Loveliness ...

Is it just me, or do my fellow bloggers also get giddy with excitement when they find a digital copy of a photo they have had a hard copy of for years??
I'm not that savvy with a scanner, obviously!

I have had this photo of a very favourite kitchen in my Beautiful House file for a few years now... how lovely to be able to post it...

Note to self - buy artichoke globes - fabulous prop xx

Distracting Myself...

 It is no secret that I am quite partial to a good old room rearrange, especially when I should be working instead...

This weekend was no exception. 
I was in a bedroom rut so I decided to empty, move, and restock these 2 huge bookcases from either side of my French doors to behind my bed ...
Jeepers, my Dad has a lot of cricket books ... and of course they are predominantly green so they definitely had to be turned around so the pages were facing out instead...

So, now I'm sleeping in a library ... which I kind of like! 
All those great writers sending me off to sleep each night is a comforting thought...
Then, right on cue, Mr H jumped up onto my neatly made bed - he loves having his photo taken...

Pancakes ...

I have a dreadfully familiar habit of calling most people darling... shouldn't this therefore equate to more pancakes??

Happy V day, dear friends xx

Antler ...

By jeepers, I love an antler...  

(We have quite a few sets of these lovelies to put in the new shop... and of course both Mum and I are exhibiting high levels of reluctance to part with them... sigh)
