ShinY & NeW

Here she is......in all her 'I didn't pick blue' glory......;O)

Nobody guessed white so I'm not as predictable as you all thought!!!


Scandi white and bamboo bowls......believe it or not $8.00 each from Kmart. The salad servers were bought separately for $15.00 (for both) from Pillow Talk and are a great match for the budget salad bowls......

I'm starting to see a theme here with my Christmas gifts......they all involve stirring......which is me all over ;O)


I played it safe with my Kitchen Aid Mixer because I want it to be a permanent fixture in my kitchen......and even though I love aqua and sea green I tend to think that lashings of white really make the accent colours shine......


Kikki K aqua stripe bowl and Anna Gare measuring spoons...these weren't for Christmas but they do make the point about white with aqua very nicely......


What do you think?

Love Tania xx

    1. Thanks so much Neen,
      It's definitely been a long time coming but worth the wait......
      I think that's why I decided on the white, it's not something I can afford to change my mind about ;O)
      Have a great day!!!

  5. Happy birthday and enjoy every minute whipping stuff up with that new mixer. The white looks fab in your kitchen. Now about the butlers pantry, I thought that was just a walk in pantry but perhaps it should have a sink to get the posh title. Not sure. Mine will not have a sink but will have a study nook. Given that i currently have a pantry about the size of a postage stamp any glimpses into your pantry would be wonderful so a tour would be fantastic ( and any tips on layout etc would be great as we are still working that bit out). mel x

  10. haha! I got it wrong - predictably!! ;-) If I had been getting one of these gorgeous mixers for Chrissy or my birffie, it would be white all the way for me too. Soooo much easier to mix 'n match with changing styles. I see you and me have this love 'thing' going on with Pillow Talk! The obvious choice for me was the white salad servers, and of course the two Scandi elfins who have pride of place on my home-crafted driftwood tree this year! Check out my blog to see how cute they are. Hope you had a brilliant 38th, and broke out the bubbly! mwah heather x

  12. Love it! Yep, white was my second guess too. Has it got minty polka dots on it or did you add those to the photo? Either way it looks gorgeous. Love those aqua and white bowls. Gorgeous kitchen accessories for sure x

  14. Hi Tania,

    LOVE the white. I'd have to go white if it were a permanent fixture too. Now, I stumbled across your Blog for the first time the other day (I know, I'm a bit slow catching on to all the cool Blogs!). I had found the most perfect Peacock headboard at the Tip to match an equally gorgeous but slightly tatty peacock chair I found over 6 months ago and was wanting to see how they came up painted white and I came straight to your Blog. Yours looked GREAT so I have gone ahead and painted them white. I'll blog about it just as soon as my daughter cleans up her room. You will die when I tell you how much I paid for them. Anyway, Happy new Year and Happy Birthday too. Mel x
