the weekly top ten returns...sort of

If it seems like ages since I've done one of these posts...
my lovely friend Mariska's reading spot
...that's because it is.
So in honour of the first of these posts for the year...
...this is a 'bumper' edition.
While my fellow Australians...do I sound all Prime Ministerial?...
...or just a complete lunatic...don't answer that!
...where was I? While around the country people are still battling floods or the clean up from them...
 and in the very worst cases, reeling under the grief from losing someone in such an unimaginable way...
...here are some soothing pictures.
A semblance of normal.
And let's not forget Brasil and Sri Lanka either...
...where getting back on your feet might not be quite so achievable as it is in our lucky country.
The man and I are off to Brunswick Heads today (yes, revisited...that's for Aussies who remember the radio show!) and I'll be without much access to internet and won't be able to reply to comments until I get back (sorry). I'll miss you.
So have a good week lovely people and I'll see you 'ron (that's Australian for later on if you're wondering what drugs I'm on...) 
And a special hello to new readers who might be experiencing their first top ten...
As you can see, I'm not very good at counting :)
And if I absolutely had to go camping...this would be the only way!
images in order of appearance are from: I used to be snow white but I drifted; abigail ahern (2); ak-magnolia house; apartment therapy; bijou and boheme; brabourne farm; colour me happy; design sponge (2); honey and fizz; mfamb; northern lights; the decorista; the design files (2); the inside story; this pretty space (2); tiny white daisies; verandah house; lonny; tiny house blog


  1. What a great collection of images Kerry! I love Mariskas's reading spot, that beautiful blue image and the artwork on the first image from the design files. I remember looking up the artist and feeling quite depressed when I realised I could never afford one of her pieces. Maybe she could do a print release?
    Have a great break Kerry x

  2. Great top ten Kerry. I bet your favourite is that hot pink wall. Nice to have normality back... Have a great week away at Brunswick Heads, I hope the weather is nice for you. ;-)
