Adventures in Babysitting

October 25th, 2012

Amazing what you find when you’re not really looking!

When juggling a baby and two small businesses with your partner, so good at negotiating you become. Every hour of every day is bargained back and forth to ensure we meet our sons needs and our work gets done. Yesterday I had ‘Leon & Mummy’ time scheduled between 12 and 4 pm and decided an excurison was in order to celebrate the warm weather and pristine beaches right at my doorstep. Avalon was calling me.

Between my comforting takeaway coffee from Franks Bar and a consistently awesome mini Almond Croissant from La Banette, I stumbled upon tiny boutique Tiny Bird and began mentally redesigning my bedroom based on the goods that I found there. For instance, I have the perfect place for a Snowpuppe Pendant Light, the right outfit to complement a Lucy Folk Necklace and a bare wall waiting for a snedker°studio Marbled Print. Infact if I had more money than God and lived in Denmark, I’d cover an entire wall in their Marbelous Wood.

Inspired by the perfect palette at Tiny Bird, I moved on to Mark Tuckey. home. to revisit my wish to own a one of a kind Bengali Quilt  A brilliant orange and yellow version caught my eye, and the pretty purple reversed side of a more feminine personality provides a refreshing alternative.

I left with pics only to aid the ‘we need’ conversation I planned for my husband upon my return.
