Bloggy Purchase


I wanted to share with you, a lovely bloggy purchase of mine. Unfortunately the only photos I have of it include one of my offspring lounging on my bed (his bed was covered with the laundry sorting pile...closest to the laundry (cupboard)..... heaven forbid he actually fold it for me... rather than relocate... I suppose when ya gotta read, ya gotta read).


See the pretty garland on my bedhead? Tina made it for me. It's double sided and has navy and cream ticking on the other side. I love it. Despite living a minimalist existence in this apartment (I'm still decluttering like there is no tomorrow) I still am tempted by little pretties created by my bloggy friends. You can visit Tina's gorgeous blog here at Rubies' Place. If something is not in her Etsy store, she will make it for you!... with love...and gorgeous wrapping... and a sweet little note! Thanks Tina.

  1. Your bed is lovely and showcases your pretty little garland so well, as does the son! :D
    And I love that chair!!! Is it blue/white or black/white? So, so pretty...how long in the apt?

  7. It's gorgeous huh - I got mine last week and I love it :) And I was so impressed with the quality that I am custom ordering a pillow from her and she has been lovely about it - great to see someone so deserving getting a call out.

  10. Oh, A-M, that we all could have some of Tina's crafty loveliness in our lives! I have one of her garlands on my 'like to buy once the tax return is done' list. And don't get me started on all the other sweet things she makes. Talk about talent! So pleased you have some to admire. J x

  13. My bedhead and ottoman were from 'French and English' here in Brisbane. They are the most beautiful quality.... Italian linen. Very reasonably priced too. Ask for Heidi. Say hi from me! A-M xx

  14. Your rental apartment bedroom puts mine to shame! And Tina is such a sweetheart, and the garland she made you is beautiful!

  15. Lovely touch of whimsy. And such a soothing, homey room -- you'd never guess it's a rental : )

    Cheers, Alcira

  20. Bedside lamps were hubby's office lamps. I couldn't bear to put them into storage so they have been 'apartment repurposed'... since my previous bedside lamps were sold in my ruthless decluttering bloggy house contents sale! A-M xx

  21. The garland is gorgeous and looks fabulous hanging on that gorgeous bed :-)

  22. You may be feeling cramped by your small space living but I can see that you're managing it with your usual sense of elegant style. :)

  23. What? You sold those lamps?! I really like them in the Home Beautiful spread. I like your current ones too though. I love that nickel look. So classy.

    I also second buying AM's bedhead and ottoman. It really is fantastic quality. My hubby and I love our new bedroom. French and English were sooo good to deal with too (I'm Sydney based).
