Dear Olive,
Quite a few lovely things have recently found their way into our home.
1. Dinner plate. Couldn't afford the whole set so just bought one. Perfect for all those times I'm dining solo.
2. Cushion.
3. A couple of these map letters. No idea what to do with them or where to put them yet.
4. Globe lamp Shane found at Vinnies.
5. Tony Mott photo of your Dads old band. (He's the handsome one second from the right.)
Not only that, but it's a long weekend. What lucky ducks we are.

Kinda loving all of it!
I was trying to figure out where the plate was - I thought it was another cushion, like one of those suzani embroidered round cushions... then I finally realised it was infact a plate. LOVE it!

Happy long weekend :) x

Haha, I love that you bought that one dinner plate and are enjoying it now. What a great solution! I think maybe I would try stacking books on top of the X?
