It’s hot! I need to cool down

Posted on Mon, 9 Jan 2012 by midcenturyjo

It was over 40°C here today. That’s actual not apparent. Hot. Needless to say my heat addled brain turned to day dreams of water. Beach, shower, pool. Cool water and shade, a hint of a breeze. My body may have sat here sweating but my mind flew away to this beautiful pool and by . I need little more. Perhaps just a ceiling fan turning softly and a cold drink… or several.

It is no secret that Li and I have a more than healthy respect for photographers. It is through the lens that we slip into a room like Alice down the rabbit hole. A beautiful home exists in a specific space and time and we will never get to experience it except through images. Not just any images today. Wonderful, evocative photographs by American born but Barcelona based . Light and shade, composition and angle, texture and earthy colours. Spare almost but magical.

A new project

Posted on Sun, 8 Jan 2012 by KiM

I guess I didn’t think I was busy enough with my day job, this blog, a house wrecking/rebuilding project and 7 cats. I started a new project a couple of days ago that I wanted to introduce you to. For months my little sister’s husband has been bugging her and I to start a fashion blog together. I had been blogging some fashion content on my page of this blog and since Jen follows several fashion blogs (as do I) he thought maybe we could give this a go. We finally agreed after Christmas and designed up a fairly simple blog that is now live. It’s called  which is perfectly suitable as Jen is currently a stay-at-home mom and owner of a home and cottage so her spending habits are quite a bit different than mine (I tend to be alot less frugal). And we might add in some non-fashion related stuff too as we go. We’re going to give this venture a shot and see what happens, so please !
