It has been so lovely having Mum to stay for the week, and time has gone far too quickly. She is flying up to Brisbane to stay with Clare tomorrow and I wish I was going with her! Last weekend we found a fabulous little second hand book sale where we stumbled across a gorgeous old book of botanical prints. The pictures were just asking to be framed and were just what I needed to hang above my bed. My bedroom has been lacking personality and until now I had not found the inspiration I needed to give it some life.
The pretty pink jug was picked up at the Camberwell Markets (I think Clare almost turned green when Mum and I rang her from our Sunday morning trip there - it was one of her favourite places to visit when she lived in Melbourne). The book in the photo has such a pretty green cover that I bought it from the book sale even though I never intend reading it. Ah, the thrill you get from snaffling up a bargain and decorating on the cheap!
