Just thought I would let you know that my laptop has had a full lobotomy and that I will be back in action on Wednesday (your Tuesday). Hooray! Course I am sobbing at all the goodies I missed over the weekend, especially SUYS, SBS, Lazy Sunday and 60L Weekend. Sigh. Anyway, see ya soon!

Perfecting Patina


Patina. 
Patina is a color I normally wouldn't have in my inventory/closet. I'm more of deep blue, green, grey, or black kind of guy. However, this challenge opened my eyes to the options Patina has to offer. The cardigan from Nanuk fits Patina perfectly and adds interest with the buttons. Match it all with a gorgeous girl, and you're set!

Sniff...

That was a little sniff of sadness cos this will probably be my last post for a wee bit as my laptop needs to go to the Doctor's, as she is overheating.  Do laptops go through menopause?  Shrug.

I went to Rhed asking for suggestions on what I should do and after some coercing (she batted her eyes all cute like), I gave in to do a photo together. This week's color is called, "Iron".

Visit Rhed's new site for FTLO to get information on her outfit!

Just a reminder that if you are looking for home/garden/furniture/ houses then you can check out the Where the Heart Is blog.  I decided to separate the two to make it easier for you.  So, if you are all about the fashion, you can come here, but if you are wanting some decorating items, then you can hit the other blog.

Make sure you join the followers on Where the Heart Is blog, so I know that at least a couple of people are reading it.

If you haven't become a follower of this blog then please feel free to join up!  We love seeing that follower list grow!

Here is a pic from today's blog post on Where the Heart Is so you can see what the difference is.  Make sure you check it out...

New for My House

I saw this new item at LISP Bazaar and just HAD to have it.  It is the Bookset Reading Corner and is just perfect for my beachy/blue house.  I raced over and grabbed this before the ink had cooled on the notecard Pandora had sent out!

I also could not believe the price!  120L for this amazing set that has props poses, friends poses and couple poses!  Or you can buy the fatpack of three colours for 300L!  Awesome.

There are different colours to choose from, so you should find something to fit beautifully into your home.
