Life right now...

Right now my life is all about uni and assignments due to the fact that there is only 4 weeks of uni left to go. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by and that I am nearly on uni holidays again already! I have not really loved becoming a teacher and in the last couple of weeks I have actually decided to stop studying teaching at the end of this year and am thinking of changing my degree to interior design instead. It is really exciting to think that there is only 4 more weeks left, of what is a misery for me, and then I will be able to get on with doing something that I am actually interested in.

Pretty Mail

Today I discovered a new favourite thing... pretty mail! The lovely Rin from Papered Thoughts got into contact with me a week or so ago asking if she could write me a lovely letter. I was all for the idea and have been waiting excitedly for it to arrive! I never knew so much prettiness could be put into one envelope... I am so amazed at Rins letter writing skills and I'm really excited to start writing a lovely letter in reply for her. I'm so inspired by Rin and her pretty mail that I have decided to take part in a letter exchange that is being held for the remainder of the year! So excited!

The Horse

My all time favourite shoe label The Horse recently released their Spring/Summer collection for 2012! The shots from their new collection are so dreamy and make me so excited for summer! I am lucky enough to own a pair of these shoes and I cannot wait to wear them all summer long!

Morning Tea

{Pictures from my instagram @greylace}

While I was at Salamanca Market in Hobart on the weekend I bought some pretty treats from Macarons by Ruby. There were so many different flavours to choose from, but in the end I decided on strawberry, sticky date and pistachio. On Sunday morning I treated myself to one or two for morning tea and couldn't waste the opportunity to take some pictures of the lovely little things! How I wish I could make a perfect macaron!

Vintage Interiors

A few weeks ago a friend ask me how I would style my future house. I instantly started thinking of retro furniture, pretty wallpaper, pastel colours and lovely little trinkets. There is something so wonderful and inviting about vintage interiors and it is a feel I definitely would like my house to have one day. I found these pictures through pinterest. I hope you enjoy them!

Hobart + Alpine

Hobart this weekend was spectacular! Definitely one of the best weekends I have had in a while. On Friday night we went and watched the band Alpine and they were amazing! Totally blew my mind! If you haven't heard any of their stuff yet then you should have a listen to them. The following day was a typical gorgeous Hobart day... we went to Salamanca Market, did a little shopping in Hobart city, visited the pretty new T2 shop, had fish and chips from Flippers and went for a drive up Mount Wellington. A great weekend all round.

Weekend Delights

This weekend I am planning to go to Hobart with a few friends to go and watch the band Alpine! I haven't been to Hobart in a long time so I am pretty excited! The band plays later tonight so we have decided to stay the night at a bed and breakfast and then spend tomorrow going to Salamanca Market and having lunch and doing a bit of shopping! It is going to be a good weekend!

Floral Kitty

Floral Kitty is a lovely new boutique that has recently opened up in the lovely city of Launceston and I am so excited to go and take a look at it! It is full of vintage inspired clothing and accessories that are going to be just perfect for summer! I found these dreamy pictures via the Floral Kitty Facebook page and they are currently working on setting up a website to be able to sell their lovely goods on-line, which means that even if you don't live in Launceston you wont miss out! It's so good to finally see Launceston getting so many amazing new shops!

Pretty vintage deer

There is something so precious about a vintage deer... Whether porcelain or plastic, they are so beautifully made and detailed and have got to be the cutest things around at the moment! Here is a collection of pretty vintage deer for your viewing pleasure today.

Today I have been flat out working on a nice big etsy order for Rockrose Handmade, an on-line store full of lovely handmade goods. This is the first time I have ever done a wholesale order so I am pretty excited about it! However, after a full day of sewing and making I am definitely pretty tired and ready to relax and I can't think of anything better then curling up to sleep on a pretty crocheted blanket in the warm afternoon sun.

Tea Party

Here are a few pictures that I took from my tea party that I had the other day! It was such a fun day with lots of yummy treats to eat and heaps of delicious tea to drink. It was also really good to be able to catch up with some of my best friends! I had so much fun getting ready for this tea party and I would love to do it again some time soon!

Dear Lolita

Friday is here at last... This week feels as though it has gone for ages! Which is good for me as I am on uni break at the moment. It has been quite stormy here this week and from the sound of the wind outside it seems as though it might be the same again today. I'm having a stay at home day today and so am looking forward to spending the last day of the break reading my book and drinking hot chocolate all day. I discovered these photos by Dear Lolita this morning and just love the comforting feel that they have. I love discovering pretty photography and I love having a place to share some of my finds.
