Dream designs

June 27, 2011


Here are my new pillowslips – something a little more striking and warm for the winter months. A bit of a habit of mine to buy new ones when I feel like refreshing my favourite place without spending hundreds of dollars on the entire bedlinen set. The colouring reminds me of this pic of a […]

Maritime love

June 16, 2011


 A special little find from art markets in Amsterdam  George Seurat’s  “Entree du port de Honfleur” and an original oil painting by Will Chown that I found down in Ballingup during my “Wide Open Road” trip with my friend Jules, all live together on top of the bureau in my bedroom to provide a sea view.

It’s Friday, no?

Eureka moment

Left or right?

March 27, 2011


Well, my friends, thought you might like to take a little test to see if you are left  or right brained or pretty much both. I made up the pic above especially to illustrate this post, hope you appreciate the effort (right-brained?). I am a sucker for these short quizzes. This one was sent […]

Had to share this Leunig cartoon with you… Mum cut it out of the SMH and posted it to me (as she is technologically challenged). We both thought it was great. Just a little giggle for a Friday, it’s the end of the work week after all. BTW, did you notice the pattern in the thumbnail pic […]

Absolute Bloginner

February 12, 2011


   OK. So this is it. The start of a journey. Welcome to Rupert Street Digest. I have to admit, I’m still a bit nervous at the thought of anyone with access to the net being able to read this but I’m sure I’ll get over this in time (possibly when I realise that no-one […]
