There is something for everyone out there in web land!

Drifting back to Holland again, Patricia our Hiccups agent who is visiting Melbourne at the moment recommended I take a look at this website which is totally devoted to all things dinosaur related. The Hiccups bed linen design 'Dinosaur land' sits happily amongst the hundreds of jurassic offerings.

A favourite wallpaper - featuring birds of course!

I love this wallpaper design 'Perroquet' by Nina Campbell. It features a beautiful colour palette, a painterly technique and sweet birds and butterflies, all of my favourite things.

Here is 'Perroquet' styled by the great Swedish magazine 'Family Living'.

Ariadne at Home - Kinderen

Our Hiccups agent from Holland is visiting Australia for the first time, and luckily for me has brought over a lovely stash of magazines which I will be reading this weekend. Here is our 'Hello Blossom' bed linen design which appears in the latest edition of Ariadne at Home - Kinderen. I love the Dutch style of bedroom decoration, so different from here in Australia.

Beautiful fairytales

These beautiful dresses and artworks have been created by artist Valerie Hammond for her exhibition 'Twilight...contes de fees'. The artist describes the inspiration of her work began with finding a battered copy of Yeats 'The Celtic Twilight' whilst strolling through a flea market in California. After reading it, she found an instant connection with her Celtic roots to the melancholy and magic described within. I would love to see this exhibition in real life....

Lovely interiors from Easy Living Magazine

Some very pretty images from the pages of Easy Living Magazine from the UK, readily available in Australian newsagents. I love the hollyhock, lupins and foxglove wall stencils. And the Suzy Hoodless wallpaper is perfect for a little girls room.

Hanging out at the Elmore Field Days

Here are some more photos from the Hiccups stand at the Elmore Field Days. Rushil was one of our happiest visitors and a huge admirer of all things tractor related. After visiting our stand he was off to investigate the John Deere display, apparently green machines are the go!

Ready to go on the Hiccups stand.

Poll Dorset sheep Colbinabbin style - a lovely shade of red.

A few kelpies I wouldn't have minded taking home.

Lovely kids clothing from Noa Noa Denmark

Noa Noa always come up with beautiful clothing collections styled with a delicate vintage vibe. The new range for girls is as endearing as always, and I would be quite happy with a few pieces from the women's range!
