Fresh Biscuits

Colourful Tea Pots at the Coffee Shop


I am on Stradbroke Island off the Queensland Coast, Australia. I am staying at my friend Jody's beautiful holiday house. There is so much inspiration here. Everywhere I look there are colours and textures which delight my senses. I find inspiration in the funniest places. The colours of ice cream, the monotones of sea shells and the delicacy of a hibiscus flower. Here's what I am loving today.
