Juicy Pineapples Galore...

I have featured pineapples a few times before on my blog, as I am a fan. So when we visited the Harvest exhibition at GOMA recently, one of my favorite parts was the pineapple feature. I remember many of these item, and I particularly loved the vintage tea towels.

Not the worlds best photos as it was behind glass and taken on my phone.
Loved this wallpaper.

Hardy winter plants...

I am loving all the gorgeous plants around at the moment. It's amazing the beautiful colours that are in bloom in winter. So many of these ones have a retro vibe happening.

A few of my favorite flowers...

I love flowers and always have. I like all types, I love bright ones, but find myself drawn to the pastel romantic types more. I went to the flower markets and purchased flowers for my wedding and along with my family and friends we stayed up late the night before my wedding and made all the flowers for the wedding, including huge bouquets. It was so fun and something I will never forget.

So soft & pretty / centerpieces

An enchanting stone castle...

We went for a day trip and we found this gorgeous stone house. I wonder what it looks like on the inside?

House Hunting treasures...

I have seen some real 'beauties' while house hunting. Some in very original condition. Here are some of the things I have seen last weekend.
Very original round bath

Very original tiles

Wondrous indoor garden 'feature'

This kitchen bench is pretty retro and I thought it was pretty cool

Amazing vinyl floor in a kitchen

Grrrrrrr. I've got the eye of the Tiger

I liked this retro light

I actually loved this very cool shed that still had cool storage with rusty nails in them


I nearly wanted to buy this house just for this shed





LOVED these aqua ladders

Checking out a little anodized planter hanging in the garden.

Fresh mountain air...

We had a very much needed few nights away over the New Years break. We stayed at a mountain guesthouse. The cooler fresh air was beautiful for us all.
