1875 brick and sandstone cottage we may or may not buy because there is another, a beautiful, beautiful other……

WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So what’s in this week?

  • What’s the old warning in showbiz? Never work with children or animals? I’m not going to heed the advice. First up we have Modern Playhouse… giving kids a space of their own to dream and play. Fun and stylish!

  • Ok so here comes the animal part. Not quite decor in the strictest meaning but Kim and I couldn’t resist these gorgeous pet portraits by Alexa Hanna of Doodlie Bop Pet Photography. I just want to rub all their bellies and crinkle up their ears. If you can hang your kids’ portraits on the wall why not your fur babies?

  • Grant Sonnex is a contemporary furniture maker but just saying that is doing him an injustice. He’s a master craftsman and his beautiful, sustainable furniture pieces are almost sculpture. My favourite? The Yup’ik chair, his interpretation of the classic Windsor chair.

  • Be still my beating heart. The Hepsi range of rugs by Loom. I will own you one day. I will. I will. Swoooooooon!!

Oh Jo my heart skipped a beat…I don’t know whether to be excited, worried or depressed.

This is it! THE rug to end all rugs! I looked at their website but no prices – emma chizit? Do you know? Approx?

Ren says:

Lovely- I too love rugs like these made out of recycled rugs- I first saw one about a year ago made my ABC carpets-
I will have to check this one out!

Have a great day!

I love those cubby houses! They are fabulous!

Deb I think you are going to need in the thousands for a large rug 🙁
Katherine – offers are going in on Tuesday after our valuer has a good look at both. The runner up is good and I would be very happy there but the other house OMG I’m ruined as far as anything else goes now. Just need the bank to approve … jinxed it probably by writing this.

Thanks so much Kim and Jo! I really appreciate it! 🙂
