A colourful Monday

Monday, August 8th, 2011

It’s always good to start the week with a POP of colour! I’m currently loving…

My spray Carnations.

My mini Eiffel tower print scarf.

My Little Mo Glass Brooches!


Today I have been busy making glass brooches for the Montage shop. Only 6 days till we open our doors to the public!

These glass brooches are my favourite things to make because I love the shape of the glass domes, it reminds me of a mini snow globe. Once I took Rich to Snow World in Malaysia, it’s a giant cool room with lots of ice and fake snowflakes blowing. It was kind of like being in a snow globe and we even did some tube sledding! But it was exhausting carrying the heavy tubes up the icy slope so I made Rich carry mine:) Oh fun times.

Doors of the world

Friday, July 8th, 2011

We’re back! We saw so much, ate and drank and hiked and snapped silly photos. I think I’ve seen enough monuments, musuems and castles to last me for awhile…so for now, it’s good to be home!

I have tons of photos to share but I’ll start with a fun and quirky collection that I created with my husband:) I’m going to call it my Door Album.


I’ve always had a special fondness for doors and door photography. I love all kinds of doors; wooden doors with large brass handles, a retro and kitsch door, a church door with stained glass windows, old stable doors…or even a cute trap door for the kitties!


So during our trip, I asked my husband to help me snap a door photo in the places that we visited. I would handpick the doors, and if I liked it and found it to be unique, I would add it to my door album.


Soon it became a game between us to to be on the lookout for the “perfect” door. From big to small, to old and new, to bright and muted…there were doors in all sizes and makes! Here are some of my favourites:)









Which is your favourite door? I love the green door and green shutters the best! I think it’s the perfect colour to paint my front door one day. I’ll blog more with pictures of our travels in my next post:)

Doors in order:
Apartment door in Stuttgart, stable doors in Tübingen, southwest Germany, fiery red door in Esslingen, University door in Tübingen, cottage door in Wales, golden door in Paris, graffiti apartment door in Pankow, east Berlin, green door in Strasbourg, northeast France, blue office door in Paris, Berlin cathedral door, London phone booth door.

The thing about shoes…

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

I was trying to clear up some room to store all the presents we got from friends and families during Christmas. So I sat down, opened up boxes of forgotten shoes and tried on every single pair to see which ones I would keep or throw out.



In the end, I couldn’t bear to part with any..since I had already thrown some out a few months ago. I feel like each pair belongs to an outfit and like lovers, cannot be separated!


And this is my husband’s collection. I kid you not. If we threw these out, he would have no shoes at all.

Tee hee hee

Pixie cut. This one is shorter than the last one. Maybe I’ll call this Pixie Version 2.0.

Lucky me (or sometimes unfortunate) my hair tends to grow really fast. I’m not sure why…it just does.

Art exchange

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

I’m slowly replying to all my pen-pals. Almost there!


Again I’ve been spoiled with more snail mails this week. Some friends and I took part in an art exchange. Each person mails off a handmade art and receives a surprise package in return. I’ve received two packages so far and they’re all lovely!

Del from Delicious Designz made me a flower brooch in orange and blue wool! I love it so much! I was touched that she chose my wedding colours and it made me all giddy again looking at the fun colours. This brooch makes me think of orange poppies!


Deb from Two Cheeky Monkeys made me some hair pins. I must admit, I’m a bit obsessed with hair pins and I wear them a lot! The ones that Deb sent me are my favourite kind, they look like little vintage charms and they come in pastel colours. They also match my Matryoshka Doll bag that I bought in Japan! Hehe.


Thanks girls! I hope you’ve been receiving lots of cool art yourselves! xoxo

Orange and blue wedding photos

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

It’s been 6 months since we got hitched, and up till today I still get emails from those who’ve stumbled upon my blog asking me about my wedding shoes and a list of vendors. So I will compile my vendor list along with this post!

Here are my favourites from our photographer, Jen Regan from Anna Rose Photography.


For our summer wedding, we gave away orange paper fans from ebay, to cool our guests down.


My bouquet was an arrangement of orange mokara, orange calla lilies, hypericum berries, orange roses and James story orchids. Made by Karma Floral Design. I wanted something petite and beachy! My girls are just holding a few stalks of James Story orchids.


My dress is a simple white dress from Cue, paired with a white belt and orange ballet flats from Nine West. The headpiece is a birdcage veil by Bridal Affair. I got all this from wandering around in the city. I stayed away from Bridal shops because they were too expensive for my budget!


We had our wedding at the Kidogo Arthouse Gallery, it’s a lovely rustic limestone building perched right on the cliff. It overlooks the ocean and it’s nicely hidden away to give us a little privacy. We started off with a tea ceremony inside the art gallery and after serving tea to our parents, we moved out to the cliff to say our vows.


We gave away bubble bottles to our guests to blow. Inexpensive..and fun. The kids loved them the most. We wrapped up the bottles individually with our names in blue paper.


For our decorations, we got orange and blue paper lanterns from ebay. We sewed the table runners ourselves, arranged some orange orchids in ikea vases and added blue and orange paper napkins. I’ll let you in on a secret, the cutlery are actually plastic chrome cutlery! Even the wine glass is plastic! I’d rather put money towards our first home then splurging on china dishes!

I think it’s possible to hold a handmade wedding, that doesn’t cost a bomb. We kept ours really simple and minimal. I chose not to use any videographer, chair covers, flower petals or satin ribbons…in fact we didn’t even have a wedding cake! We also opted to have a buffet lunch instead of a sit down dinner meal, which really helped with the costs. Our Surf and turf buffet was prepared by All Suburbs Catering.


Well that’s pretty much our DIY wedding! I don’t normally post wedding related articles so I hope you enjoyed looking at all the photos! If you need any more info just email me or leave a comment here.

A word of advice to all the brides out there planning their wedding, just remain steadfast and calm about your budget! Pick a charming location that doesn’t require much decoration and add in a few personal and unique touches. Have fun!

For more pretty pictures, you can check out some of these blogs that featured my wedding too:) Ruffled.
