Last Sunday I attended a local Ramadan bazaar and picked up a few goodies to spruce up the home, including a cute decorative bowl from Tunisia. My kids have broken so many ornaments in their collective short few years of life so I'm mindful of cute (and cheap) little knick-knacks when shopping. This one cost $15 and will make a perfect ring bowl but in reality it will probably end up holding random coins.
Little blocks of Tunisian perfume. At $5 a pop, these babies go great in drawers to ensure your clothing smells beautiful. I ended up buying two rose varieties and one of jasmine.
Spring in June. I love florals. Thats a bit of an understatement. I saw this piece in an uploaded photo on Facebook for the day's event and was originally not going to attend because the kids were acting up and I felt craptastic myself but once I saw this painting I knew I had to have it. I drove down, mentally cheered "Yes!" when I saw it still for sale and handed my money over on the spot. I've been looking for pretty artwork to do up my house for a while now and besides a nice one I bought from Ikea a couple months ago (that I'll show in an Ikea haul later on) I haven't really come across anything that really drew me in.
I love this piece because the colours are on point, IT'S FLORAL, it's a proper original canvased painting not a mass-produced print and it was painted by a lovely local muslim Perth artist; Aseel Zaher. Check out her website here.
I also bought cupcakes to keep the kids busy as evidenced by a recent Instagram upload, but alas I didn't get to have nay because the kids got to all of them before I could.
