Welcome to Relique!

Rove Concepts


Wobbly knees. Hot blushing face. Heart in throat…

.... So starts a gorgeous new blog. Pia Jane Bijkerk, stylist, photographer, writer, and international traveller (featured here on desire to inspire) has a new blog Pia Jane Bijkerk enhance the everyday. Imaginatively dividing the blog into rooms in her virtual home Pia invites us to "wander from room to room (page to page) to see what I am up to and see what+who inspires me, what my latest projects are and what’s cooking." So grab a cuppa or a glass of french wine and share in the genesis of a new and too too beautiful blog. Take the time to revisit her website again too as Pia has updated her portfolio. Congratulations Pia. I can't wait to see your beautiful blog blossom.

At Kim's place

Jo posted below about what's happening at her place so I thought I would share what's going on at my place.

This is what my house looks like at the moment. A complete disaster, filled with boxes and packing materials and fur balls. I hate moving, because I hate living in chaos. My anxiety levels are through the roof. I am moving on Tuesday, and at this point it's looking like I won't have time for any posts until at least mid-week. I only have 2 days off from work for the move so that isn't going to help my situation much. So this is just a heads-up if posting is a little light this week. Jo will be doing her regular number of posts though.

And to top it all off, we are having yet another huge snowstorm today. This may help me if I'm snowed in tomorrow and can't get to work. :) If I don't come by the blog much, have a good week everyone.

At Jo's place

Not enough time in the day! Christmas is always so busy and I always leave things to the last minute. No thrifting for me this week. Christmas parties and Christmas cards. That's what's been going on at Jo's place. Kim and I sent out our Christmas e-cards this week but I still love a snail mail card. These are the ones I made this week. The Midcentury Modernist had a link to a new blog Grain Edit where I found these and I was off and creating. Thank you Stephen and Dave. You made my Christmas! (That poor little timber tree is my only Christmas decoration this year. Where did the time go?)

How are your last minute Christmas preparations going? I must admit I can't wait until it's over and I can put my feet up and relax. Time to go. I have a few more peacocks and birds to finish for my etsy shop. Drop by if you have the time.
