This Balloon extravaganza found via: "All the time in the world" is so much fun!
These pink poodles can be found in the window of a sweet little store by the name of "Small Acorns"- a home and interiors boutique in Wellington -New Zealand.
This is what I love about this display...
Its bright, fun and playful
clever, innovative and light hearted.
The Dress is made out of Wellington maps and was inspired by the upcoming WOW- "World of Wearable Arts" competition- where the world of fashion and art collide.
Have a look and be inspired.
Thank you Amanda and Jo for such a fun and inspiring piece.

Just being Audrey

{Just Being Audrey}

This is such a stunning book of the life of Audrey Hepburn.
Everything from the whimsical and playful illustrations to the heart warming story and the kindness that this book places in your heart. She was truly an inspiration.
This story was written by Margaret Cardillo & illustrated by Julia Denos.

A delight for your eyes and a joy for all the young at heart.
