‘Elegant Swamp’ style

It could be the next big thing in home decorating and design: Elegant Swamp style. You heard it here first! Just wait, it will become a common design request on TV shows like House Rules and The Block, mark my words!!

Or maybe it won’t…

Trampolining Bunny Easter Hat…and a catch up

It’s been a while since I posted, so this is going to be rather photo-filled as I catch you up with what we’ve been up to!

My sister and her family have been visiting from Hong Kong for the past few weeks, so we’ve had some large family outings gatherings, culminating in a special party last weekend celebrating our parents’ 50th wedding anniversary!

We try and match the hat to his current favourite things…but it was hard to come up with a new theme this year. After much thinking it dawned on me that he has been loving jumping on the trampoline – and so we decided to incorporate that into the hat, and have the Easter Bunny jumping and having his eggs bounce around too!
