once a swag of jolly bloggers…

For Australia Day I thought I’d share my favourite Aussie blogs!

Australians all let us rejoice,

For we are young and free

We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil

Our home is girt by sea

Our land abounds in nature’s gifts

Of beauty rich and rare

My favourite Australian bloggers ::

  • the bowerbird stories ~ Kristina from {oldyarns} has created this blog of  poetic words and images. It is a place for finding beauty, traveling lightly & living simply. scribbled notes of adventures in the {oldyarns} workroom, vintage finds, our wanders & longings. please stay for a bit.
  • Mre Press ~ Clare Press has created this blog under the same name as her clothing label. She writes, lots about fashion and occasionally about so-called serious things. In another life she would live in a villa in Florence, travel with her maid and order hats from Reboux. In this one, she owns a Blackberry that’s languished, neglected, in its box for over a year.
  • instinct & grace {Paper Boat Press} ~ Kylie Johnson is an australian artist…designer… potter… poet…something or other….

  • Pia Jane Bijkerk ~ enhance the everyday with this inspirational author and photographer.
  • Concrete & Honey ~ a very pretty blog of all things beautiful: people, objects, interiors & food. A love of Paris, colour, design, words and most of all, white, all with shared inspirations & creations. And her food blog Urban Nectar is divine too!
  • Lace & tea ~ Amanda has created a blog that is dedicated to luxurious fashion, wonderful decor and unique architecture.
  • Desire to Inspire ~A Canadian and an Australian Trying to Inspire the World One Room at a Time… Kim and Jo have never met but there is a bond between them that is so strong that it can cross half the world and back again. You see Kim and Jo are interior design junkies. They met on Flickr, shared images they had bookmarked and well that was that. Desire to Inspire was born.
  • Nostalgia and now ~ A Brisbane blogger who loves everything old and dripping with history. She’s drawn to things that tell a story, create an emotion or arouse a fond memory. Seeking that feeling of nostalgia, of a yesteryear only past lives have experienced and translate it into life – now.
  • Shannon Frick ~ celebrity interior stylist, decorator, writer and mother of two lovely children. She lives on a farm close to Byron Bay. ‘I love hanging out at home – in fact my life ambition is to spend as much time at home as possible and so I have created a career that gives me an excuse to do just that! I spend a lot of my time at home writing – my column for Inside Out magazine plus my sense of style interior books.’

  • perpetual-one ~ Georgina’s blog. ‘i love designs that are simple, smart and a little bit quirky. i like being different. i like things with a story, a style and a quality that is difficult to copy. perpetual reflects the one source of a love that lasts for always.’
