I’m loving all the metallics that are in interiors at the moment. No matter what shade you prefer, there’s nothing quite like the lustre of a metallic accessory to really lift a room.
Take a look at my roundup of gold, silver and copper homewares over on Houzz today.
American readers, don’t laugh but I had never even eaten pumpkin pie before (it’s not a ‘thing’ here) but nevertheless I wanted to try my hand at making it.
I had to adapt a recipe a fair bit (for example, using fresh pumpkin because you can’t buy pumpkin puree here) but it worked out well. It looks a little too browned on top but it was the perfect consistency.
It got the thumbs up from the family, especially from those who don’t have a big sweet tooth.
Find the recipe over on Polka Dot Bride today!
Brr! The temperature is dropping by the day as we head into winter next week. I’m on my third hot drink of the day just to try to warm up a bit.
With tea and coffee on the brain I’ve chosen to round up some of my favourite tea time essentials for you kitchen.
Tomorrow morning we are picking up a new car (!!) which is a tad exciting. We are planning to drive to the coast tomorrow and the hills on Sunday to take it for a spin.
Do you have any fun adventures planned for the weekend?

It’s a public holiday here but I had to pop in to share my latest guest post up on Houzz.
I’m going to a friend’s baby shower on the weekend and I’m giving her one of my framed art prints (er, spoiler alert, Cat!). With that in mind I thought it would be fun to round up some of my favourites by other artists, including the adorable one above by Andrea Smith.
Aussie and Kiwi readers, I hope you have a restful and reflective ANZAC Day. Everyone else, happy Thursday (or Wednesday as the case may be in your time zone) and I’ll see you tomorrow with a Mother’s Day gift guide.
