May the roof above us never fall in
And may we good companions beneath it never fall out.

Running Water!

With only the final touches to go now, the ensuite has really come together. As of this weekend we have running water in the basin, hurray! Plus a shelf and mirror so we're now doing our teeth in there and Tom finally has a decent place to shave. 

Savern mirror $79 from Ikea!

One of the things I love about sourcing bargains like this from ebay and Ikea is having  money leftover to splurge on little extras like these 'Perpetual Blooms' towels from Anthropologie.

We bought a mix of turquoise, light grey and dark grey...

 but I also really love the gold.

Wish they still had the bathmat pictured above in stock, although I do also love this 'Pansy Pop' mat - just wish it was a wee bit smaller for our tiny ensuite.

Speaking of size, every bathroom bin I find is enormous. We just need something simple with a lid for cotton balls and the like, but I've trawled Ikea, Howard's Storage and Big W to no avail. Any suggestions?


  1. These Lunar Waste Bins are cute:
    Not sure if they ship to Australia though.
