She has some great DIY projects on her blog, incidently saw some these decorative knobs for $7.99 online here in Aus and NZ, which might look great..

Saw the Stella McCartney 2011 Collection on her blog too, am in love with the floral print..

House Tweaking

Mr 9 asked me to make his room look a bit more of a 9 year old room the other day!  My friend  from Reaburn Designs - who designs fantastic homewares, had a front yard sale a while ago here in our inner city Melbourne suburb.  The whole neighbourhood turned up! our suburb consists of many creative people - one of the buyers of Myer fashion had a sale the other day and her front yard was brimming with people!

Reaburn Designs sale looked more like a shop than any other yard or garage sale I had ever seen!  I seemed to come back home with a cart load of things, one being a fantastic retro orange lamp, so based on that lamp am sourcing things for his room.  My friends Tex and Joe pointed me in the direction to Johnny Two Tone Club and I bought the below poster for his room which am going to place in white IKEA frame. He loves it!

Went to go for coffee today at Made and on my way met a lovely couple who had this most amazing sale in their front yard! ..I bought all this silverware, which is now in the prop cupboard..... thought it would look great in the event I was styling a banquet!!! hmmm when I will be doing a "banquet"  I don't know! I love all the banquet silverware though!!!  At the moment we are styling four upcoming Dessert Buffets...it's busy times for LBC!  (PS anyone want to come over for a banquet dinner! ;). BTW hope you like the orange and lemon inspiration!

Grey or Gray and a bit of Silver

I love the colour grey, to me it's soft and soothing - with the addition of silver it adds that touch of glamour. Whilst I was gathering up all these photos for the post, I remembered how much I loved Mrs A in the Cove's post on yellow and a touch of grey.  Also wearing grey is a nice alternative to black,  I seem wear alot of black, particularly in Melbourne, so will be looking for grey cape coat for this coming winter!
