a thing for aqua....

i've gone a bits nuts for aqua lately. it's so fresh and happy! i found these pegs and the basket in Target the other day. for under $4 for the lot, they were a must!!
my sister-in-law bought these for Kacey for Christmas and we have strung them along the top of her bed. when i found out they came from the fab store 'TYPO', that store then joined my favourites
being a bit of a hippy at heart, i'm also drawn to all things crochet. so finding this aqua crochet skirt for a couple of $$ at the markets? oh the joy!
LOVE.... also from Typo... also from my sis-in-law.... yum...
and even 'Smiggle' came to the party!
these stunners were 30% off at Target. they will help me put together my next furniture makeover... for outside ;)
the basket was an op shop find for $4 and is just the right size for a stack of magazines.
lovely linen looking teatowel with cute birdies. this hangs in my laundry under the jar of aqua pegs :)
i do have to be careful with this colour, as it doesn't match every room. so it's used in the laundry, Kacey's room and the outdoor area. and i'm just loving it :)

  1. Pam from Bayside Rose suggested we come over and check out your neck of the woods.

    Pam's top shelf in my books, so you must be too!

    You have very nice taste and are quite clever ... I do like what you've done with your grandparents ottomans and I'm glad you kept them.
    (I'll follow you if you don't mind ... don't feel obliged to follow me though ... I'm a bit unfocussed blog-wise).
