Wonderful Review!

I am in fact on holidays however when its worth the blog you must BLOG! I have found the most amazing shop (I have entered before but I had not had my blog at this stage). Huskisson, one of the most beautiful tiny holiday destinations on the South Coast where I spend many a weekend with my partner and his wonderful family..
Huskisson also happens to be the home town of a little homewares shop known as "Few and far", which is the host to some of the most amazing items around.
Selections of beachy wares, romantic trinkets, stunning leather bound journals, even traditional African celebrational hats which are large and amazing!!
The happy owners of "Few and Far" have now also branched out and opened another store known as "Indigo Love", completely different but both just as fantastic as the other! As well as opening the new store they also have branched into an online store.
Congratulations to the team at "Few and Far" from Fawns and Squirrels.

I cannot tell you how beautiful both of these shops are nor can I tell you how much I plan to spend there!! It could only get better if the owners decided to branch out and open a store in Shellharbour. Hint, hint... ;) Ill even work there...

Thank you for a lovely shopping experience.

Highly recommended

1/46 Owen Street, Huskisson NSW 2540

Top 5 cutest Blue things for your home!

Welcome to Tuesday and welcome to my post!!

Todays post consists of my top 5 favorite things for the home.


Cuteness Numero Un!

Ginger Jar!!! I love these so so much!!

The Sorbet Ginger Jar from Domayne is is the perfect piece to bring the style into the 21st century!

Now I am obsessed with Blue, so this will fit nicely in my lounge room. =)

Dont be fooled by it being a ginger jar, it is NOT made from China! This product is in fact ceramic!

(I am completely tempted to buy it online =S)

RRP $89.95 from

Numero deux!

Drum Stool!

I adore these..
Perfect for those little spots in the corner that you just cant seem to fill. These "Grand Drum" stools
come in a range of colours from I cannot tell you how much I adore these!
 RRP: $165.00

Numero Trois!

This item is slightly more expensive then the others.

This chair is a "practically design your own". You choose your colour and fabric which I think is amazing!
Made out of bamboo and starting at $769.00, this chair is more of an ornamental piece. However, like everything in my house I do not buy it to look at it. Therefore if I was to buy one I would certainly sit in it!

Numero Quatre!

I know that this falls under practical pieces but... It is just so sweet.

I love me an apron! This apron captures the pattern from a ginger jar. Completely adorable.
From Ruche which holds the most beautiful items of homewares and clothing. I highly recommend this site if you love everything feminine.
RRP: $17.99

Numero Cinq!

And last but not least.. A short lived item but so fragrant and amazingly pretty!
Blue Hydrangeas!

One of the most beautiful flowers ever! To be found at your closest florist, they are stunning up against a fresh wall. And I personally liveto team them with pink Peony's in a vintage ice bucket.

I hope you loved every bit of tonights post and keep watching my blog for lots more bits and bobs <3

Have a wonderful day xxx

Foxish morning to thee!

Goodmorning fellow readers, and a beautiful day to you all.

This morning I made the decision whilst sipping from my "Fantastic Mr. Fox" mug that I would share with you all my top ten favorite "Foxish" things. Some are for kids, some for big kids and others for everyone.. (I would say all are for everyone based on my own taste, but I am not everyone)

Item Number 1,

This completely adorable jumper from "Jay Jays"! I absolutely LOVE IT! It is unlikely that you do not wish to play with the foxes ears too..

The jumper retails at only $29.95.. In other words: not only is it completely adorable, the price is too!

Item number 2,

Now if you are into having something for everything in you kitchen that is completely sweet (like me).
This butter dish is perfect! The moment I found it I knew that I must have one!
And to make it all the more wonderful it is hand decorated!
The wonderfully gifted artist is Julia Davey Ceramics of Etsy.
There are loads more designs to coose from which are adorable.

The price of he butter dish is $36.36 which is a great price for somethin made with such love.

Item number 3,

So this next item, you all should find youself very lucky for me to be sharing this as I have this dress. I also have it in a shirt print. I love it so so much as well as the staff at "Me and Oli".
I have in fact brought quite a few garments from them as I love the whimsical prints they sell.

At $170.00 it is a bit more expensive than some of the other items, but so completely worth it!
The items are well made and I mean where are you going to find a dress that looks like this??
It comes in 9 different styles to suit all tastes and those 9 other styles (including this one) come in 5 different prints!

Perfect for young ladies who love exciting prints!

Item number 4,

This may not look like much at the moment but if you click the link below you will see some of the absolute cutest baby photos!
An excellent prop for any photographer. The "Forrest fox cuddle cape set" is appart of a range of hand made props from seller "Calleigh's clips and crochet creations" of Etsy. All items are made upon order to suit your newborns size needs
If I had have seen these when my 2 were newborns I would have brought them!

You can either purchase the pattern for $5.75 or the outfit made for $38.65.

Item Number 5,

This is another that has made it from the "I own this list". From my absolute favorite shop Anthropologie. I have not put it up as yet because the only spot I can is made from glass and wll we obviously do not wish for it to break.

At just $24.00 I can not think of a better way to knock on someones door than knocking this fox head!

The knocker comes with a green or a brass wash over the metal which I think gives it that little bit of extra cute.

Item Number 6,

Another beautiful handmade wonder. This little guy perfect or your tiny fox lovers comes in 5 different prints.
Made by "The Crafty Little fox" of
At only 15cm High, 10cm Wide and 20cm Long this adrable "softie" is perfect for snuggles!!
And, the pricing is just as perfect! $20.00! Awww!!

Item Number 7,

This list would not be complete without Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox! One of my favorite books to read to my 3 year old. A fantastically made whimsical book for the whole family to enjoy. And as most people know they have made a movie which I equally love!!

Depending on where you buy the book the price varies, for example if you purchase from a wholesale seller from eBay Book Shutter Childrens Books you will only pay $12.00 or less with Free postage and handling!

Item Number 8,

I know, I know its another house item but I love stuff for the Kitchen!

Completely sweet and practical these salt and pepper shackers in Pewter make a adorable little conversation starter! RRP: $65.00 but again so worth it!!!

Item Number 9,

Okay, so alot of people whom are not in the UK may not know this little guy but my Daughter certainly does. As do I from his very loud and proud attitude and quote "Ha, Ha, Ha.. BOOM, BOOM!!"

He has been loved by children since 1963 can you believe it! Therefore I thought I would show you how you can share some of this love. Not only because half of the jokes within the show are also intended for adults but he is just too cute! (I must love the word cute!)
Unless you venture to eBay this little fella is quite difficult to come accross, so that is what I did.

Basil Brush, still with his tag, this guy is from 2001. And in perfect knick!

6 inches tall and a great edition to any collection of vintage toys or if you just want him!

Only $14.80 Buy it Now.

Item Number 10,

Last but certainly not least! I could not leave this post without a little Geekery!
Just a little bit of fun, a "Tails the Fox" from "Sonic the Hedgehog" figure!
Another item scoped on eBay as I wanted to find things that we would not normally think about when we think of a fox.

For just $12.15 you could have this little guy to keep you or your little ones entertained, I think I might need to add it too my little guys collection of geeky items =)

I hope that you enjoyed this mornings post and remember to follow me or like my FaceBook page!

Who does not love Jeffrey Campbell???? If you don't you should probably re-assess!
And Jeffrey with lace can only equal one thing, Drool!

On a 2.25 inch platform with a rubber in-sole this shoe is High enough and comfortable enough to ensure you look and feel fab all night!! (Just incase your Valentine/Lover wishes to walk along the bike track beside the water front)

Dessert! YUMMY!

When I first found this I drooled!


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen (defrosted and drained) blackberries
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet your berries and how sweet you would like your slump to be)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Whipping cream or vanilla ice cream for topping


1 In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut the butter into small cubes and add to the flour. Using a pastry cutter, two knives, or your clean hands, cut the butter into the flour until the flour resembles a coarse meal. Add the milk all at once and stir until the flour is just moistened. Handling the dough as little as possible, form into a ball. Set aside.
2 In a 2-qt saucepan, add the berries, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, lemon zest, and water. Heat until boiling, stirring a few times so that the berries are well coated with the sauce. Once the berry mixture is boiling, tear off spoonful chunks from the dough ball and drop onto the fruit around the edges of the pot. You should have enough dough for 6 dumplings. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 25 minutes, without peeking at the dumplings.
Place dumplings in serving bowls and top with berries. Serve with cream or ice cream. Serve hot or chilled.
Yield: Serves 4 to 6.
