...amidst the pre Christmas craziness, Ivy and Piper's December 2011/ January 2012 (argh) Issue is here and what a picture of calm the cover is.
How pretty is that?
I am having blinds fitted in our bedroom, the guest room and play room today. I have discovered in the last few days that whilst blinds are a fabulous way to display fabric and infuse colour into a room, they are also very good for keeping out the morning sunrise. We have had a quilt hanging on our window since last Tuesday and I think the neighbours are wondering who the new riff raff is!
Boxes are being emptied and a sense of calm being restored to our family. We had 15 people over for lunch on Sunday and this house worked really well for entertaining. It has very good Kiwi "indoor/outdoor flow"!
I am off to look at what lies beyond that beautiful cover. Melanie and Elizabeth just keep surprising with their beautiful mix of fabulous design and down to earth, real approach. Their magazine always feels very 'kind' and puts a smile on my face. Thank you both x.
