via we ♥ it

Struggling to find the motivation to study for my looming exams, I walked down to the shops this morning and bought the makings for a home-cooked laksa. Now a good laksa is pretty much on the top of my favourite things to eat list and if I can master it for myself I will be as happy as happy can be!

Swapping is Fun!!!

I was so excited to recieve my package today from the tres delightful Sandrine of smboutique and histoire de soie. She is a French born artisan living in Queensland and has put together a beautiful package of handmade and carefuly selected items just for me as part of the Calico & Co. birthday swap. I just adore every little thing she has sent me. She has caught on to my style perfectly, with the ring she sent being a gorgeous match with the skirt I am wearing on this very day!

You really must check out her store and see her talents for yourself. Thank you Sandrine xoxo!

Hopefully the package I sent to the lovely Verity of Joie de tea will reach her early next week. Thanks too Amanda for organising this swap. You have a fantastic blog and an ace bunch of readers, you lucky girl!

Monday Owlness

Come on spring, do your thing...

This spring we will have homegrown strawberries!

The next month is going to be buzzingly busy and I hope that the coming of spring is going to bring me the energy boost I will need to get through. Between clinical labs, placement, submitting portfolios, moving house and going down to Sydney for a Metallica concert (not my idea), i'm hoping there will still be time for little stolen moments of crafting and daydreaming.

Very excited though, beneath all the trepidation , especially about our new house, decorating the sunroom and long weekend strolls on the beach. Being busy is good for me, I just need to keep reminding myself that I CAN DO THIS and do it well!

Good morning, tea?

Taking things little by little today. Trying to balance work with play so that I don't end up in limbo and doing neither.
