Saturday morning found Alexis and I happily eating breakfast in one of our favorite spots, Queen of Tarts, in Observatory. This is such a happy place. We have slurped many a fantastic cup of coffee there and had loads of many delicious breakfasts (often including an vital cupcake or two).
This spot always lifts my spirit and inspires me. Tina, the owner, has just opened a great vintage kitchenware shop across the road. Naturally we popped in and naturally I walked out with a whole set of gorgeous tea cups (thanks Alexis!).
Spots like this remind me of why I love this city.

I discovered Laure Cinotto this afternoon (via Oh Joy). She is a hugely talented florist, a foster Mum to the most adorable kittens as well as talented crafter. Dont you think these bouttonieres are adorable? Kind of makes me wish I had seen them before our wedding.

Hey, its time to hunt for Easter Eggs again! This little nest is an example of the Easter gifts I have made for my family.
Here’s wishing all a very happy and peaceful Easter. If you are traveling anywhere, please drive carefully.

With Easter around the corner, what better way to put to good use the foil that your Easter Bunnies came wrapped in. Jeannette Jansen had a stylish solution: The 3600 kcal necklace. And if that sounds like way too many calories, then you could always opt for the 60kcal pin. Brilliant!

Quirky tableware is fantastic, Versailles Fluo is a decadent collection of old fashioned tableware with a zingy bright “bit”.

Have a look at this beautiful ceramic “Grass” vase. Grass is crafted by design duo Claydies, in thier words: “Grass has a very na├»ve ceramic expression that is both uplifting and amusing”.

It been a while since my last post, we have been very busy with wedding plans, the wedding and the honeymoon that I simply couldn’t get to everything. Anyhow, have a look at Tamar Morgendorff, isn’t this bird house fantastic. Birds where a big theme at our wedding and they continue to inspire.
