MIA due to Pinterest and Pottery Barn Teen range.

Welcome friends to Natasha in Oz! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under.

Well, true to my word, I have been spending less time blogging and more time doing lots of things just for me, and boy, what fun have I been having!

My first bit of excitement came when I found out that the Pottery Barn Teen range is now being shipped to Australia! By June, even more of the Pottery Barn range is going to be shipped Down Under....YIPPEE!!!



This is a bit less exciting but it is fabulous to me...
I have been reading a lot more and drinking lots of tea!







I have also been doing some substitute teaching, volunteering at my son's new school (yes, he is at a new school...that is a whole other story!) and I have been doing lots of cooking and baking.



 I have also been spending far too much time on my latest obsession....Pinterest!







I know that many of you are already big fans of Pinterest so I won't go on and on about how brilliant it is to be able to have a virtual/online pinboard, but if you have seen it yet you must check it out! Here are some of the images I have pinned to my pinterest boards recently:

So, my dear friends, if I'm not around very much, you'll know where you can find me...




See you over at Pinterest!

Best wishes always,
Natasha In Oz 
Please join me each weekend for the Say G'day Saturday Linky Party!

  2. Hi there..I have missed you...sounds like you have been busy. I looked into that little hobby but decided that between Blogging and Face book, that was enough time spent on the computer...I want to live outside the computer too! LOL

  3. Hi Natasha - Well your blog is very "pinteresting"! -

    Truly, beautiful photos - inspiring and uplifting - I love the first set especially with the whites and pale greens - two of my favorite colors (and much of my house is decorated in those colors)

    Confession: did not know about pinterest - will check it out - thank you!

    Happy Pinning (and Blogging)

    Best Wishes,
    Linda

  10. Oh I love Pinterest too. Sooo much fun and inspiration there. And hooray for Pottery Barn Teen. Just remember that American bedding is sized a little differently than Aussie bedding. Not sure how the sizes match up . . . .

  11. Hi dear friend. I am SO pleased that you have been doing such lovely things, and making time for YOU! And you're right - you have been true to your word. Well done! I have never heard of PinInterest, so I am going to have a look at that one! Gosh, absolutely stunning photos in that post today. I loved every single one, and you have picked out some fabulous home magazines there. Carry on enjoying life my friend!

  16. I did have a look on PB Teen, my conclusion is it is definitely not just for teens. I like a lot of it myself! Thanks for stopping by my blog - I count Australia as one of my favourite places, I spent a year there. It's a shame it is so far!

  17. Wow, Natasha. I am so loving all of your images. They are gorgeous.

    And, I especially love the tiered china serving pieces. Do you happen to know where they can be purchased?

  18. Hello Natasha,

    Love the images! I especially liked the one with the plates on the wall in a swoop like pattern. I have taken a peek at Pinterest and it is chock full of inspiration.

    Glad to hear you are enjoying yourself!

  25. Isn't it weird how we apologise for taking time away from our blogs? I do the same and I'm not sure it's good... Anyway, I love your collection of pictures, things and yummy-looking-biscuits and I hope you enjoy all of your time away from the computer. Love from London xo

  26. First of all, what is that you are baking?! Is that PB&J?

    Secondly, how weird that PB is shipping to Aus but I can't access their website from the UK? It's starting to frustrate me b/c I need to see their design goodies... I'm in withdraw!

  30. Natasha, just calling by to say thankyou, I think you will know why, hope you will find it interesting. As for Pinterest I went and had a browse but I MUST not join too many online interests already, tempting though.

  38. Hello My Friend!
    Just stopping by to say hello and see how you are doing. I just love your images from Pinterest. You have some wonderful boards full of awesome images:)
    I hope you are enjoying your teaching, baking and tea drinking. That PB &J creation looks so yummy :)
    I wish I could taste it, but it's a lot less calories this way...I guess that's better for me, haha!!
    Take it easy and have a wonderful week.
