The Time Travelers Wife

I am thrilled that one of my favourite books of recent years is finally making it to the big screen.

"A dazzling novel in the most untraditional fashion, this is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger's cinematic storytelling that makes the novel's unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant. An enchanting debut and a spellbinding tale of fate and belief in the bonds of love, The Time Traveler's Wife is destined to captivate readers for years to come."

The trailer looks promising, (and I love both Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana) but you never know how well or truthfully a book will be portrayed in film until you see it, so bring on the oz release date, i'll be there, in gold class hoping for the best...

Happy Birthday Sweet Manni

Yesterday this lovely little butterfly turned One ....

Her parents, our dear friends Rich and Col made this fab hungry caterpillar cake...

Which was quite a coincidence because we gave Manni a copy of the brilliant book that was one of my faves as a child. In addition to that, I made this little fellow for her...

I was quite pleased with the result, what do you think?

Gossip Girl Goodness

I have to admit I got myself completely addicted to Gossip Girl whilst the Boy was overseas, I even managed to down the whole two series' in just two weeks!

When the news came that we would be moving into our fab new house, I immediately started getting inspired all over the place for decorating ideas, and I just cant get past the combination of colours and styling found in Serena's decadent boudoir, as well as a couple of Blairs outfits from the last few episodes that really got the inspiration juices flowing.

Time can only tell if I a. Pull it off or b. change my mind a million times before finally ending up with a bedroom that looks nothing like the lemony, golden, duck eggy goodness that those rich Manhattan fashionistas have got me dreaming about....

I do have some way to go however, having just moved in, our bedroom looks a little 'blah' to say the least...

However, I have managed to make a small start by spraying the silver bases of our Ikea bedside lamps gold, and putting some pieces to inspire me on my bedside table...

The flowers were kindly donated by the neighbors (unbeknownst to them however) and the picture is of the Boy as, well, a boy, playing in a (duck egg!) blue bath with his action man... too cute!

Now i have a million things that need sorting out, throwing out, to be spray painted or made... so until next time, in the words of Gossip Girl...

"Ex oh Ex oh'

Home Sweet Home

Well its hardly a great image, but it is a happy one for me. We are finally in our new place and well shot of the old one despite a horrific experience trying to get out of the place. This is our cosy but as yet undecorated bedroom viewed from the lovely garden. The only two places that don't look like they've had Hurricane Katrina sweep through. Oh the joy of moving.
