I'm Loving Neon Pink!

Oh my goodness. I am loving the colour - neon pink at the moment.....but in small doses - just like the images below.

I've loved this colour for a while and I have been slowly accumulating a few neon coloured accessories for my wardrobe .... until I asked hubby to pick up a can of neon pink spray from our local Bunnings store. You see, I was inspired from a sneak peak into an amazing home in my favourite magazine - Real Living. I saw a picture of an old timber chair that had been painted neon pink.

I had intended on spraying the chair myself but hubby knows that the my spray painting skills aren't that great so he has kindly done the job for me. I'll post an image of our neon pink chair throughout the week.

I think I'll hint for a neon/fluro yellow chair next. Check out how cool this colour looks on the cute timber table below.

These colours make me smile! What do you think?

Pink and Red

My late grandmother always told me that red and pink should never go together - and she knew a thing or two about colours as she was a dress maker when she was younger. I would have loved to have been able to show my darling grandmother the images below which I came across this week.

I found myself checking out an awesome blog earlier today called Urban Kaleidoscope after reading about the blogger's home in the July edition of House and Garden. (On a side note - my daughter is so cute - I came home from work the other day and she had this magazine for me as a gift....but I had to buy it from her from a little magazine shop that she had set up in our living room!) I came across theses gorgeous images of interior designer's Josephine Gintzburger's kitchen posted on the Urban Kaleidoscope's very cool blog.

I just have to say it...I love, love, love the pink Smeg fridge!!!!! I would love this fridge in my kitchen. Maybe one day.

What do you think of the pink and red colour scheme?

Cute Picture

Sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh. I found my daughter sitting in a little nook next to our buffet the other night. She was just sitting there reading one of her daddy's car magazines.
Well....I guess there is some really good light for reading! So cute.

Anyway, you can see a little bit my my new dining chair in the above image. It is in pink!Sorry hubby!!

I Love Birthdays

It was my sister and hubby 's birthday last week. We caught up for some lunch the other day. My daughter and I enjoy adding a few fun touches to the dining table to inject some party spirit!

I ordered these cool paper napkins from Aussie Gadgets. They come in a selection of designs and they look like you are wearing a tie when you open them up. Very cute!

This is my very cute niece called Eva. Eva is getting into the party spirit!

PS: Hi Katie!
