These things I've seen... (Introducing my new "Last Week's Round Up" weekly post)

How was your weekend?  Mine was, I must admit, a little lazy... though I did plant some strawberry plants, make beetroot risotto with fresh beetroot from the garden and go to see "Beginners" at the NZ Film Festival so not a complete write off!

Anyway, I've had it on my mind to start a new weekly post.  Each weekend, I thought I'd share my pick of the best posts for the previous week from blogs I follow.  Here's my first go at this.

First up is decorislikebutter's post featuring Mario Testino's very glamorous shots of SJP and family at home.  Here are my favourites:

I just love the retro vibe of these photos and that spotty evening gown is amazing.

Chantal at Beau Lifestyle shared with us this cute idea of framing wedding cake butterfly decorations as art (this idea originally came from a blog called kiki's list).  This is one I might just have to try myself.

Centsational Girl featured yet another inspirational furniture revamp project.  This time it was a little faux bamboo chest of drawers that she repainted in a peacock blue colour.  Isn't it great?

I love how she provides step by step instructions and makes recommendations on the best materials and products to use.

Finally, luxeandlillies did a couple of posts this week featuring pictures from the latest Lonny including this mock croc papered bathroom which had also caught my eye.

Here are some other images from the latest Lonny that I bookmarked:

That's it for now.  Looking forward to some more wonderful inspiration next week!

Beetroot risotto sounds good! And thanks for the mention Claire. And that bamboo chest of drawers looks sensational! I also want to repaint my bedside tables and this has been just the inspiration that I needed.

Have a lovely week! xx
