Thankfully we now have brilliant tools for collecting our online inspirational imagery such as Pinterest! Here are a few images that have been exciting my eyeballs lately. All links to these images can be found in our Pinterest account @oursweetwilliam

From my studio - abstract work


I could spend hours loosing my self in a world of colour and ink in my studio making happy abstract messy paintings.  Here are some pieces I  have been working on. These pieces will eventually make their way to our etys shop as archival quality art prints but I am just too busy having fun with my brushes right now!

Lia's Mexican Party

We recently had my daughter's 12th birthday party at our home. Great fun was had by all preparing for the Mexican theme. Pinterest is such a wonderful place to collect ideas and gather images for a party, what did we used to do before? You can view our Mexican Party board here. While looking at party ideas on Pinterest we came across happythoughts where we found amazing digital downloads to use in the party decorations. I customised the designs by adding Lia's name, it was all so easy and I think came out beautifully. The 30 plus 11 year olds had a blast but I not sure my white washed floors will ever look the same again! Enjoy the photos from our fun filled Mexican party!

Holiday in CapeTown




We recently went back to my home town, CapeTown, on a family holiday. It was lovely to return to a place that I know like the back of my hand, catch up with old friends and discover new and exciting changes. Here are a few shots from our trip.

My home in the Herald Sun Home magazine








My home was featured in the Melbourne Herald Sun Home Magazine on the 19th of April but I was away in CapeTown at the time (murphy's) so it was very nice to come home to see the feature in person  and I was very flattered to see it made the front page! I have found a link to the article online here. Photos by Chris Groenhout.

Abstract Love


One of the joys of Pinterest is creating boards that are full of inspiration, and one of our favourite boards at the moment is one we made called Abstract Love - go check it out if you are into all things abstract.  The other joy of Pinterest is the path of discovery - serendipitously coming upon lovely images such as this one found at a fantastic blog called The Jealous Curator - a blog dedicated to contemporary art and with a great bi - line : 'DAMN. I WISH I THOUGHT OF THAT.'

Fresh new look at home














I recently had the pleasure of a photographer and a journalist being in my home for an upcoming article (which I will post about once published). This gave me a great excuse for updating a few items in my home, spending hours styling it and putting out lots of lovely flowers. It was nice to have a pretty, clean and photo worthy home, even if only for a few hours! I took a few shots myself before it all returned to the normal mess. You can view the rest of the images on my flickr stream here or my pinterest board here.
