Shed Conversion

Architect Richard Peters did a pretty fabulous job converting this 120 year old “shed” outside of Sydney into a very charming 2 bedroom home.

Check out the “before” shots at the bottom of the post to see the level of transformation.

Great Stuff

I’ve long had an aversion to collecting stuff – probably a symptom of years of moving around and the hassles associated with packing up! But this phase seems to be coming to an end…or at least I’m learning to understand the value of really great household objects.

I just bought a bright yellow vase that’s brought my bookshelf completely to life. I’m on the lookout for more great finds.

Lovely Packaging

I don’t really need a vat of maple syrup, but with packaging this good, I might seriously stock up. Oh, and did I mention it’s supposed to be the best tasting maple syrup ever made?

“Big Jug” of Best Made pure organic maple syrup.

I wish I would just get sick of these Serge Mouille lamps. But I don’t.

Ah, someday!
