The 'TV Chair'

Gosh, I haven't posted for ages! Mostly because I've been slack in remembering to take my camera when we leave the house and I've generally just been feeling quite uninspired lately....

We went op shopping the other day looking for a new chair for our living room. Since our living room is not wide enough for an awesome big leather corner lounge as we had hoped, we have decided to have one three seater couch and pick up a couple of random vintage chairs from op shops and have them reupholstered. Mind you, now that we've had this chair for almost a week, I'm now kind of liking this fabric and wondering if we did reupholster, what kind of fabric would we look for.... I know definitely something modern but other than that, no idea! Might need to do some more research to get some ideas!

Comfort food

Tonight we made chicken, leek and thyme risotto. Risotto is the ultimate cool weather comfort food! We had it with toasted ciabatta bread with olive oil. We also polished off close to a packet of plain grain waves whilst making dinner- damn those things are so good and so more-ish!  

Crusty ciabatta bread with extra virgin olive oil..
Fresh thyme from the garden...
Our risotto taking shape..
With some great cooking advice...
Ta da!! 
And.. um.. remainder of said Grain Waves.

I found these pretty cotton nighties on the weekend at an op shop and bought them for my nana. 

They are so cute and in pretty good vintage condition. The photos really do not do them justice!

I have a stack of vintage nighties myself but not nice summery cotton ones like these....Now I think I'll need to hunt some down for myself! :-)
