Moody Moving

Sorry for the absence this week. I am moving house & have also been fixing up said house. I've come to realise this about myself:
I don't really find renovations all that fun and; I really detest packing boxes. 

To get me into the spirit of moving & to help me embrace this new change, I have been having a little "pinning" fun on Pinterest, picking out lovely inspiration for my new home. I thought I share a few pics from my pinboard There's No Place Like Home.

 This entire bedroom, the walls, the floors, the furniture & decor... perfect!

 Loving these ornate white walls & the wooden floors.

 Beautiful headboard. Such a sweet & simple room.

 I'm in love with the floors, the velvet lounge, the huge windows, the chandelier, just everything about this picture...

 A perfect reading nook.

 Books galore & a fireplace, I don't think I need anything else.

 I adore every single detail of this room. Look at those high ceilings with all those windows!!

White on white...sigh....

Have a great weekend. I know what I'll be doing - arrghhh!

Tales from the Tightrope

I found these amazing images of Reese Witherspoon for American Vogue inspired by the film Water for Elephants over at A White Carousel & was so inspired I just had to share.
I've always secretly dreamed of running away with the circus!

All above images via A White Carousel
Peter Lindbergh for Vogue

I haven't had a chance to see the film yet, have you? I think hubby & I will catch it at Gold Class as we have some vouchers to use.
In honour of all things circus on my mind right now, here are a few other inspiring circus theme images from around the blogosphere that have my heart skipping a beat...

My very awesome husband knocked up that invite on the left for my parents to give to friends for their birthday. They bought them tickets to Cirque du Soleil but the tickets hadn't quite arrived in time to pop in their birthday card. Isn't he a gem? My Mum was over the moon.

So... anyone else wanna run away with the circus with me?
