Wednesday | Whip around

What's inspiring you right now?
Here's what's made the short list this week.


I am absolutely obsessed with the colour duck egg blue! We're about to repaint our lounge, dining, kitchen etc and it is going to be in a shade called Antarctica Lake (1/4 strength) which is a very pale shade of duck egg blue. Love it! Can't wait to share some pictures with you.

After seeing Stephanie Howell's post recently showcasing Jenni Bowlin's new silhouette rubons and how she used them on her vintage plates, I've decided something along these lines is a must have in my house! Obviously it would have to be a boy and a girl silhouette, and I'm sure I have some blue plates somewhere in my cupboards just waiting to be repurposed. Watch this space...

My friend Sandra's owl obsession is starting to rub off! Every time I see an owl, I think of her. How super cute is the owl made from an old tie and vintage buttons!

Lastly, bunting. There's something wonderfully whimsical about bunting. It just makes me want to celebrate something. I love that you can make it out of anything! Paper strips, doilies, burlap...you name it! I would love to have a doily banner hanging around my house all year long. Wonder if I can convince Andrew this is a good idea? hmmm....

Happy hump day to all!
Cheers, Lis.

I'm the same...can't see an owl without thinking about San! Imagine my surprise one midnight crop at Savvy when I walked outside to find a massive owl on my fence! Totally freaked me out!!!
