I know, enough with the instagram pics already. Sorry.... but it's the best I've got. Remember my hard drive crashed and I lost everything? Same thing has happened to Em at The Beetle Shack. I've got my fingers crossed for you, Em - hopefully not all is lost.

...thank God for camera phones. I was flicking through and came across these photos I took of our old apartment in Sydney. It was a converted warehouse and we loved it. Unfortunately, we had to sell when we moved up here. We'd never be able to afford to buy it back again. I fell pregnant in that home. Our first home. Although I love our sprawling house here in Townsville, that Sydney shoebox will always hold a special place in my heart.


  1. best looking shoe box i've ever seen. now for the photos of your sprawling house. yes please.

    now im taking my running nose to bed. i'll have hot green tea in the morning claire, make sure the jug is hot (Kettle, not d cups).

  2. It looks like a wonderful shoebox. I'd swap for a bit of that right now in exchange for the sleepy countryside. How strange, I've just posted some camera app photos too! :)

  3. Wow! Beautiful spaces you have (had) there! I can't imagine losing all those files! I am always knocking on wood that my computer will fire up each day.... I'm with Em--I wanna see your current space...

    Funny, I was just chatting with a friend of mine about scanning in some pix of my old apartment... and how hilarious it would be to share them online... she has fonder memories of that place than I do.... maybe one day...

  4. oh wow, i love your tablescape in the first picture. very lovely.

  5. Wow, i love your old shoebox! It' gorgeous but i'm sure your new home is too :)

  6. What a gorgeous home. I love ALL of it! Espesh that work space. How cool is your magazine rack?! And the rug. Please tell me you still have the rug. I have the 'Balinese Lady', the only Tretchikoff picture I brought with us to Germany. xx

  7. Looks like a great space - love your collections!

  8. Looks like a great space, love the chairs!!

  9. I love the instagram pics! And you had a gorgeous apartment in Sydney, plus becoming pregnant there, well I can see why it held a special place in your heart :)

  10. you make me jealous. in a good way. we conceived che in a beach shack shoe box. rather romantic until i realised that storage is rather essential when you become a parent. x
