I've been reading a biography of Iggy Pop, and came across some photos of the gorgeous Nico. I had heard of her in conjunction with the Velvet Underground before, but did not realise she had been an artist in her own right.

Megan Fox - Photos by Craig McDean

I know very little about Megan Fox, but was entranced by these images. They are for a recent interview done for Interview Magazine.

Full interview, with more pictures here.

Open Home

There are some new favourite parts of my house, now that it's all primped and preened, looking it's best, and ready to be sold.

A trio of vases - the multi hued glass vase was a gift from a dear friend - the pod vase a gift to myself - from whitneysmith.

Gorgeous lidded pot from StudioElan, vintage deco glass lidded jar bought on eBay, and Russell Hobbs salt and pepper whatsits (a little guiding light goes on when you grind seasoning on your food!)

My gorgeous candle that smells completely divine - and it's not even lit yet - from monkeysalwayslook

Whimsical - and wonderful - portraits of my boys by the talented Claire Richards.

A vintage Grundig radio/record player that Leon's parents were going to take to the tip! We rescued him, and he now lives with us. Note this fabulous cushion from tractorgirl.

Another cushion from tractorgirl. (She's so clever.)

Red Lotus cushion from Kainkain and scroll cushion from tractorgirl (as above). I am delighted that we finally have this *incredible* artwork framed and hung. I love it so much! From onesweetorange

What are some of your favourite things in your home?

House Hunting

So, we have started house hunting in earnest. Our existing house will be photographed on Tuesday and open inspections commence the weekend after - it's all happening! This is a gorgeous house we looked at yesterday. On a 2000 square metre block, I love the imposing look of the circa 1910 house, and the gardens are amazing. Leon and I worked out that we would need to spend more than we can afford getting the inside into a state that works for our family, so with reluctance, we are not pursuing this house any further.

As we left, it was William that asked the pertinent question: "Does the house come with the tyre swing?"
