old paper wreath

i was in toowoomba a few weeks ago to spend some time with mum and went to a shop at highfields which has a lot of white painted furniture and other good ideas. the shop is called simple things small joys. it is on the highway in a little precinct of small shops called abbie lane. 

on the rear wall the shop had a wreath made from pages of an old book. such a great idea. this morning i saw another on the blog of paint me white. another project for my list of things to make/do!

and guess what....there is a video on youtube which shows you how to make an antique paper wreath. much easier than fumbling your way through it.

extensions....in black

i've always liked the idea of a white house with a contemporary black extension, to really divide the old and new. i found the following posted on desire to inspire. i'm not really in a position to be doing an extension but i can always dream!

love love love black weatherboards and black paneling!
