the great outdoors

It is most definitely summertime in our corner of the world,
and the living is feeling a little easier and a lot brighter!

The sunshine has driven us out of the house and onto the terrace
and has also prompted me into getting inspired about outdoor spaces.
I love taking a little of the inside outdoors in warmer weather - a carpet, a lamp, some cushions. . .

I would love to venture into the medina to do a little personal shopping on your behalf, so if there is anything you need to complete your venture into the great outdoors just let me know!

My Etsy Finds

Here are a few of the items I have added to my Etsy Wish List

 This handpainted linen cushion is perfect for day dreaming - and made by a fellow South African who has the lovely shop toucheefeellee

 A little bit of blue beadwork can never go amiss - from TheSeaLovers

And finally this inky sea blue map from iPrintPoster.
Just to remind yourself its a big old world out there.
