I have started seeing this around the Australian blog world already and the book is not released in Australia until July!

Thank goodness for The American Bookstore in Brisbane. I am in total love with that store and the secret cafe at the back. Family owned and run since 1959 priding itself on the place to go for hard to get titles and special orders. They are the first place I call for all books now. Prices are always cheaper than the bigger stores and they can work their magic to get me books which are yet to be released in Australia.

Which brings me to this!

Flair by Joe Nye

Images came from blog Chinoiserie Chic (fantastic blog) and I also read about this on Oliveaux today along with some other beautiful styling images! This book is going on the shelf right beside Edward Yeoward's Entertaining! So much inspiration.

Slowly coming out from under my rock since the weekend. It has been like a wedding. So much excitement, emotion and love. Now crashing back to reality and finding it hard to adjust. Lots of cuddles are helping.


  1. I just caught up with your photos from yesterday. They are beautiful. Your daughter looked like a princess. Everything looked so well coordinated. I love the little hiding place for the children.

  2. This book looks wonderful. I love the title. Thanks so much for dropping by Beach Vintage and I hope to see you again soon.


I enjoy hearing from everyone. Thank you so much!
