beachy entry

hi...how's your weekend going?

a wet one here in sydney, but i can always find plenty to entertain myself indoors. this weekend it was a late breakfast at a cafe, shopping in oxford st with sophie and a movie with my friend susie. 
bridesmaids, have you seen it? i wasn't sure if i'd like it but we had a good laugh. it's a bit of a send up of the whole wedding ritual thing with some great characters. i especially liked the part played by australian actress rose byrne.

anyway..inspired by the hibiscus last week i redecorated our entry oar. i like the mix of soft blues in the scarves , pink flowers and straw hat and bag that lighten up our dark hallway.

  20. How nice it is to see all those summer beach items, put those woolen winter scarfs and coats as far as possible.
    I love your perfect picture.
