Valentina Vos

Pictures by fashion photographer Valentina Vos

I can't believe it's almost December! I'm starting to feel quite festive. Our Christmas tree is going up today and we just need to get on with our present shopping. This is the first Christmas in years where I haven't had to work on Boxing Day so I'm really looking forward to relaxing and hanging out with the family.

Blog of the week: I Am a Tree

I thought it was about time I used my "blog of the week" feature to share with you the blog of one of my real life friends Rachel! She's a busy little bunny at the moment so it hasn't been updated a lot recently but I'm sure as summer comes (which is soon here in New Zealand by the way, all you Northern Hemisphere readers) she might have time to share a little bit more.

Anyway, go check out I Am a Tree and share some love cause she's relatively new to blogging. The above pictures were taken by Rachel's husband Dane of a few things around their home. You can also find him on the web here.

Sweden, I love you

If you've been reading my blog for awhile you know that I have a growing obsession with Sweden. And here's a few of the reasons why:

Lisa Place:

Bella of Sweden:

Ellen Claesson:

Anette Pehrsson:

Hope you guys find all these Swedish blogs and photographers as inspiring as I do! Let me know if you have any faves you think I'd like :)

Inspiration from Delicate Deer

Just some pretty pictures that have captured my attention lately. For more go here, here or here. I love how this girl fills her life with so many books, it reminds me of my house a little.

What is everyone up to this week? I have a wedding to go to on Saturday and my first wedding anniversary on Sunday! Should be a good weekend.

Summer days

(Pictures by Carl Kleiner)

If your household appliances wrote love songs while you were away on vacation, their cheerful blips and bleeps would pour out the windows, sweep through the neighborhood like candy-coated tidal waves, and you would return home to find crowds of people standing on your lawn, clapping and singing along to the happiest pop melodies imaginable.

All i can say is... I love Owl City.

Arden Wray Photography

Maybe I've been living under a rock but I've only just found out about the joy that is Arden Wray's photography (thanks to the Bleubird Vintage blog!)

Arden Wray is a Canadian photographer and I can't actually find a better way of describing her work than what's written about her on her official site, so I'm just going to share a snippet with you from there:

"She is interested by vulnerability, finding beauty in unexpected places, and adventure stories. Arden Wray’s work deals primarily with themes relating to autobiography, feminine identity, and trust."

Beautiful handmade jewelry on etsy

My best discovery this weekend is Marta's lovely little etsy store. I want one of the little birdy necklaces!

She also has a blog called Emedemarta if you want to see more of her work.

Hope everyone has had a good weekend :)

Blog of the week: Posy

This week my Blog of the Week award goes to Posy for having the most adorable home & letting us inside her world with lovely little updates of her home decorating adventures.

Though I don't think my husband would let me have quite such a feminine house (I get away with quite a bit of floral & pastel but definitely not as much as this!) she has definitely given me some new ideas to play around with in my own home.

Thanks Posy for having such a wonderful blog :)

Do you guys have any favourite interior design blogs? Share all!

Creative Spaces

Lately the best thing to do when I have a spare moment has been having a peppermint tea and looking at pictures of people's creative spaces. I love seeing people's homes that have little personal touches all over the place. This one is from here. Such a feast for the eyes!

Make sure you all check out the post below as well & enter the giveaway. Frankie magazine has sponsored a giveaway of their amazing new calendar, so make sure you don't miss out, it closes Friday.

Annnnd lastly, if you want to see some pictures of me, head over to Deers and Bears, my friends photography blog. I'm the one in a black dress with a red bow in my hair.
