keen as mustard.


one of the best colours around. my english rose tinted complexion means i cannot always pull off yellow. (read: never pull off yellow)...but this warmer tone seems to fit perfectly. just like the skirt i bought at rummage on sunday. it appears to be handmade, have lace embedded down the front and fits...like a glove (read: i won't be eating carbs before wearing it.) in other news, i have decided to head over to the UK to see my nan (kit) in may next year. this means saving has begun, my next rummage will have lots of my lovely treats for sale (due to a HUGE decluttering at flower st), and i have decided i will be leaving brisbane for more textiley horizons. there's a textile course in melbourne i fancy returning to after eating croissants in paris with my girls, photographing and dreaming of living in a houseboat in amsterdam and drinking copious amounts of milky tea with my nan. life is definately too short not to go on an adventure. nothing is set in stone but i've written to my nan to tell her to pop the kettle on..can't back out now! have a great wednesday.


the skirt and complementary mustard florals from le collection.

sorry for the non-ironed pics of this beautifully crafted skirt. look at the pleating at the back!

You are so right about life being too short Laura. Follow your dreams and get back into that big wide world. There is so much for you to do :)

Hi Laura, how exciting...a lovely holiday to see your Nan and girlies and a move to marvelous Melbourne too. What an adventurous year you have ahead of you! I'm craving a bit of an adventure too, unfortunately too many responsibilities at the mo, but eventually...
I love both mustard skirts, mustard is one of my fave colours too, although once I painted our hallway mustard...it looked horrible and the next day it was boring old art gallery white again! x

You know how much I love mustard and this post is just making me want to search high and low for some of that adorable floral fabric! YUM!

Well, you know how I feel about mustard, and that skirt, my goodness. If you need to sell it off next year to help fund your air ticket let me know!
Very exciting about your planned travels and do tell more about this textiles course- sounds very exciting. Love all your mustardy finds by the way. I am just trying to finish painting this wretched lounge room as mustard and custard are a REALLY bad colour combination .c I'm peaches and cream with a hint of olive and there is no way I could ever pull off yellow either. Looking forward to the next rummage- much less guilt spending money on your stash knowing it is helping you visit your Nan. melx

How amazing is that skirt? I love living with bits and pieces of that colour scattered in the house.

Oh I love that skirt, it's something I would have picked out myself! I agree, mustard is a gorgeous colour. Your butterscotch cupcakes look utterly delectable :) Sounds like you'll have heaps of fun on your trip away- I'm sure you'll return refreshed and inspired ;)
