What’s for Breakfast?


I’ve mentioned in a previous post that husband dearest spoiled me with Le Creuset cookware earlier this year. The main reason was that we had changed over to a gas oven and the stainless steel cookware I had, did not do very well with the extreme heat. The second reason was that one, since we’ve been married I haven’t gotten round to getting a decent set, and two, they super pretty!

So, after all of this, it turns out that I have to switch to silicone utensils to get the most out of my cast iron set. Who says utensils can’t be cool, check out the coolest egg lifter I found at a store in Hilton. Below are my picks from Yuppie Chef.




Looks like the Eames dining chairs are here to stay :-) Not that I’m complaining because we have a dining set too. I guess this would be an example of getting on a trend that would remain classic and not only trendy. I’m obsessed with these black on black ones though!

I really thought it would be part of the Retro mid century trend, and would come and go. I guess that’s more proof of how timeless and classic Eames are.

Tea Party!

It seems like everyone around me is just having babies!! They’re everywhere!

So I have the pleasure of arranging my sisters baby shower and naturally my task is to sort out the decor. She’s requested a high tea and I’ve been trawling Pinterest for some ideas. Here’s my inspiration, will do a post after to see what we’ve come up with :-)






All Done

Could not wait to share this, but baby Ela’s nursery is finally done and ready for her to arrive! I love the way this turned out, it was a bit of a challenge especially as the nursery is part of the main bedroom. Either way, I think good use was made of the space at the end. My sister and her husband are thrilled, all that’s left now is for missy to make an appearance :-)  Below is a source list of all items used.
