Weekend Love

I can’t believe it’s Monday already. With the boys back at school life has become so busy. Like most families, we all hang out for the weekends. As we’re usually up early on Saturdays for the boys sports, by mid morning we’re all starving so we’ve developed a bit of a saturday brunch tradition.

Last weekend we stopped off at Banneton Bakery, a favourite patisserie of ours in Woolloongabba, and enjoyed cups of chai, hot chocolates, pastries and croissants. We were just a stones through from the Woolloongabba Antique centre, one of my favourite, spots to trawl for vintage finds and I couldn’t resist a quick look.

Antique shopping with a ten, eight and four year old I hear you exclaim! Well you might be surprised to learn that my kids actually enjoy antiquing or “treasure hunting” as I say to them. They love uncovering unusual objects and picking little treasures to bring home. They were intrigued by the juke box or as I explained it ‘ancient ipod’, but that was one find I was happy to leave behind.

In case you were wondering, the Woolloongabba Antique Centre is located at 22 Wellington Rd, Woolloongabba Qld. It also has quite a few other antique shops as neighbours. Oh and if like me you completely loose all sense of time when antique and vintage shopping, there’s a cute retro cafe in the centre so you can refuel and keep shopping.

My home: living spaces

I’m going to kick things off today with a sneak peak into my homes living spaces. We still have a few bits and pieces to finish and lots of art to collect but it’s coming along. It didn’t always look like this. We underwent a huge renovation twelve months ago, but more on that later.


I hope your enjoying your weekend as much as I am. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
