Since finding the 'Blank' Stall at the Melbourne Design Market @ Fed Square in December, I have been anxiously awaiting the launch of their website. 
So I was thrilled to receive an email this week announcing that it had launched.

'Blank is your toolbox for personalised goodies, projects and creative play.'
Their passion is to bring creativity, personality and fun into making, baking, giving and decorating.

Their website is so fun.. every product has an inpirational idea to put the item to creative use. My favourite products are the coloured gift boxes, treat bags and fasteners, just to name a few.

I purchased the treat bags and gift boxes at the market and presented my homemade gingerbread as part of my gifts at Christmas. They were a hit.

Next on my list will be more treat bags and some coloured tapes. Also, the hollow wooden eggs would make very cute easter gifts.

J'adore these postcards from 'Our Paper Shop' as they combine two great loves of mine:

1. Paris & 2. Stationary

All are authentic Polaroids taken by one of the Designers, Emma.

Side Note: Loving Emma's Blog and Guest Posts on Oh Happy Day


I recently spotted these floral watercolour cushions in the latest issue of Real Living Magazine & fell in love.

They really do make the above room 'pop'. I would love to inject a bit of floralness to my bedroom and these would certainly do the trick.

They are designed by Scottish Textile Designer Fi Douglas. If you too like them, you should check out the other items from her label BLUEBELLGRAY.

So much floral goodness is to be found

A little mood board I've created to inspire a 'neon' themed event.

I don't own a lot of neon things but I do love pops of unexpected neon colour in interiors and accessories to make a pretty fun statement. I.e this stool above - 
Love it!

Stay tuned for what this mood board will inspire me to create

How incredibly cool is this idea!

Sandwiches and Cakes on two wheels: Tiffany is an American girl in Paris with a fun foodie business. "Tifamade" is homemade food, made with ingredients carefully chosen from the farmer's market, all wrapped up in ecological packaging. The sandwiches and cakes are presented in a lovely suitcase." 

In 2010, Tiffany started delivering sandwiches in Paris when she was looking for a way to combine her two passions: feeding people and riding her bike.
 I love that she presents her sandwiches in an old suitcase and her cakes look yum, too!

I wish I had have known about her when I was there.

Side note - her nail polish is so cute


I spotted this very clever D.I.Y. today over on the Design Love Fest Blog*

 These wire Vases are made from Chicken Wire, therefore, can be molded into any form and even more can be spray painted into any colour to suit your interior! 

Costing under $10 for each one and seeing the results above, I am definitely going to make a cluster of these to put on my bookshelf.

You will find the Instructions HERE :)

*If you are unfamiliar, I highly recommend you to check this blog out - so much inspiration is to be found!

2 , 3 , 5

I have a crush on both of these two right now. 

 Olivia Palermo has a great sense of style and takes risks. I love how she has worn leopard print in all of the images above. 

I am going to add these accessories to jazz up my Autumn/Winter wardrobe and who knows I may even go a little 'wild' and pair a Leopard print Shirt with bright pants as Olivia demonstrates.
