Lately, I've been toying with the idea of setting up a permanent stall for the shop NOW&then boutique to travel to markets, fetes and festivals... I came across this AMAZING handcrafted camper via here. 

The camper looks like a contemporary gypsies fantasy... with mahogany fittings, teak wooden floors and the most modern of fixtures... not to mention the freshest Tiffany blue cab and storage ...I'm imaging the doors opening to a perfect little space... a giant closet, filled with the most amazing vintage, retro and pre-loved clothing and accessories... and a little kitchenette for tea and cupcakes, lol! Like a barbie dream house for the not-so-Barbie girl! A home away from home!

Oh gosh, I can't find the link to the blog these images and info are via, but if you 
know please let me know so I can credit them!

what we're wearing

Wanted to share with you one of my favorite blogs What I Wore (yep, click there)
 ... A blog written by the beautiful Jessica Schroeder detailing the outfits she's wearing on a daily basis. I'm slightly addicted, checking into the blog on the great outfits each morning so I thought I'd try it for the week, see how it goes... So, here goes!
Day 1 
- Thrifted checked shirt, Paddington 
(So comfortable, especially when I'm working on windows all day)
- Sass and Bide jeans, David Jones 
- Vintage logo notebag, NOW&then boutique
- Double floral brooch, NOW&then boutique

paper perfection

I've recently begun working on a paper project involving origami techniques, cutting and building. There is so much amazing work out there...

I'm thinking birds... suspension... a collision of paper (in a good way!)... layers, levels, and lighting of course (makes every display look 100% better)...  I can't wait to get started! x

Sometimes I wish I had a little house on an island... Somewhere I could hole up in when I'm feeling contemplative and drink tea and watch the boats chug by...

Although it may be a little bit scary at night... Nothing old films and a few friends and a dinner party couldn't cure.
