I'm waiting for all the Big Names to arrive so we can go shopping. Exciting Times.
Hope they get here soon. 
In necklace news, I wore this Red Phoenix tassel- tastic arrangement  to the Coalface yesterday. 
I can't remember its name but I luff it.
 Everyone I know has read this and I'm nothing if not a Joiner so it's next in line. Will I like it?
In bedding news I remain obsessed with Florence Broadhurst designs. I know, They are so attractive and cheery. Plus if you look online they're heavily discounted. Goody.
Here's Old Florence herself. Her murder in 1977 remains unsolved to this day. Poor thing.
My friend S thinks this Hermes flamingo party scarf's too busy but I'd never let that stop me 
This is it on in a different colour way:
And in the Time Flies part of the blog my little kid's about to turn 4
I know. I can't believe it either. 
Remember when he used to fit into this? I miss that sailor suit.
I am currently obsessed with trays, especially mirrored ones. Don't ask me why, I just am.
Who's with me? This bamboo thing on Gilt's particularly attractive:
And in very sad news, as the coronial inquest into Chloe Valentine's death draws to a close, I can't get her out of my mind.
If you're reading from overseas, she died at 4 years old after years of neglect. Her mother and her step father are currently serving time in prison for her death. 
It's difficult to imagine the horrors she had to endure in her short life. Poor little girl.
Anyway. That's it from Me.

In Accessory News, I wheeled out my Red Phoenix FF necklace earlier in the week.
Say what you will about it, it's been a Veritable Stalwart, never disappointing, and never ever giving me a single moment's worth of trouble.
It's about to turn 5 years old. I know this because I got it just after my nephew was born in early 2010. 
Here's the Visual Proof:
Meanwhile, there was what could only be described as Chaos on Tuesday night because the Foo Fighters were playing at Suncorp Stadium (which will always be Lang Park to me) and traffic ground to a Halt. I always think about those miners who were trapped underground in Tasmania and asked for some Foo Fighters music to be sent underground while they waited to be rescued. 
And because my Obsession and Devotion to Bees and Bee Motifs knows no bounds, I am luffing my Joan Rivers bee brooch sick! Thanks L. I will treasure it always.
Wheeled out a scarf. Seemed wrong not to.
Love Julia Reed's books about food and entertaining and the crazy things her parents got up to and this one is no exception. Read it. You won't be sorry.
Stole Mr FF's copy of this:
And baked the fig jam and ricotta torta on page 132. You press the dough into the cake tin and slather it with ricotta and fig jam like so:
then you shove more dough on top
and you end up with this attractive  arrangement:
then you sprinkle icing sugar on it:
and then finally, you Apply to Face
It was Delicious. 
I reckon it'd work a treat with raspberry jam too.
In sad news, I am fighting a determined and strategic Rommel- style battle with gallons of white oil against the black sooty mould on my poor gardenia plant. Wish me Luck.
And because this is an inclusive blog, here's something for the Vegetarians-
Feast Your Little Meat Starved Eyes on this:
I have absolutely zero else to report except that I'm thinking of making the treck to Ikea on the weekend.
Cheerio, and Stay Calm. That is All.

 Say what you will about my friend M she knows how to wrap a present. Dying to read this gorgeous book that she bought me from the Met in New York:
 Luffed catching up with her and B yesterday 
Rain's finally stopped. Thank God. My hair couldn't take it one second more.
Actioned some zucchini fritters. So tasty.

 Lunch with Old Friends
 Pink Candles
 So attractive shoved in my newly polished candle stick whatsy.
 Been polishing? Me too.
 Went to a really fun 50th Birthday Party with all the Big Names and an excellent speech.

 Enjoyed this:
 Sequined Spots can be Divisive but I say Why Not?
 Catered for some Vegetarians
Saw Foxcatcher and marvelled at how good and downright creepy Steve Carrel was in it. 3 Stars.
