Fashion Friday and Friday Features ~ Winter!

Welcome friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me in my little corner of the world today.

As you can see, I am thinking about Winter this week...boy has it been cold here in Brisbane! We have had to turn on the oil heaters, get out our warmest sweaters and drink lots of hot chocolates and spiced lattes!

I love this time of the year!

It has also been great blogging weather! The rain has stopped us from going out too many times so I have been having a great time catching up on lots of blog reading. I still haven't visited everyone who linked  up to last Saturday's Say G'Day Linky party because there are quite a few to get through. Thanks to your support there were 125 projects, tutorials, recipes, ideas and crafts linked up. I hope that you were able to visit all the sweet bloggers and said G'day to them! I can't believe it!  If you haven't checked out the amazing links from last week yet please just click here!

There were so many wonderful links from last week's party! Here's a few of my favourites....


Rondell from Something Nice and Pretty shared some of her great bargains from a shopping trip in Annapolis. I love this gorgeous Crate & Barrel rug!

My sweet Aussie friend Anne from the blog Domesblissity shared two brilliant posts. She found the most wonderful ways to use wine corks and she also shared yummy recipes for meatball sub wraps. If you haven't visited her blog before please pop on over and say G'day from me!

Jess from Cox's Corner showed us a great tutorial on how to make a 4th of July wreath out of tulle!

Judy from Cranberry Morning has a great series at her blog called Anglophile Friday where she shares beautiful pictures from her travels in England. I love this picture of St. Faith's Church in Herefordshire. One day I will visit there...

Jeannine from The Concrete Cottage  linked up a wonderful post about making a Harry Potter inspired script wall. Doesn't this look impressive! 
 

Last but not least I am so glad that I found a new bloggy friend from here in Brisbane! Rachael has the gorgeous blog Hip Brown Things and she shared this great project for a DIY fisherman's bottle. I love this!

Tuesday Tune ~ Amelie & Midnight in Paris!

Welcome dear friends to my weekly #TuesdayTune post where I share my favourite music of the week!

This week's Tuesday Tune post has a very French feel to it! As you might have seen already we are heading to Paris this Christmas so I have had all things French on my mind.

I have shared a recipe for Cherry Clafoutis....

I have shared my favourite holiday snaps from our list trip to Paris....

And I have also shared my favourite French fashions inspired by the beautiful Audrey Tautou from the French movie Amelie.

So it's only fitting that this week's Tuesday Tunes come from Amelie and another gorgeous Parisian movie, Midnight in Paris.

S'il vous plaît profiter de cette musique Française!

Here are some stills from Amelie set to the amazing soundtrack composed by Yann Tiersen.



This is a gorgeous clip of the changing beauty of Paris set to American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer Sidney Bechet's piece Si tu vois ma mère.


This piece is composed by Stephane Wrembel for the movie Midnight in Paris directed by Woody Allen 2011.



I hope you enjoyed this musical tour of Paris!

Say G'day Saturday Linky Party {45} ~ Dreaming of Paris!

G'Day sweet friends! Welcome to the weekend and welcome to this week's Say G'Day Party!

Say G'Day Saturday

Have you had a great week? I am now officially on holidays and I am so very very happy! If you read my blog yesterday, you would also have read that I am also deliriously happy because I have been planning a dream trip to Paris for Christmas!

I am obviously in a very French mood at the moment! Recently I posted a recipe for Cherry Clafoutis and yesterday I shared some of my favourite French inspired fashionsso today I thought I would share some pictures from our last holiday to the City of Lights! Now, before you hit the escape button or the x in the top of your window, I promise that I will only share a few!

Fashion Friday and Friday Features!

Welcome friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me in my little corner of the world today.

Today is a wonderful day because at 3:05 we are officially on holidays! We will be having a three week break and I intend to do absolutely nothing...except perhaps sit on my sun drenched deck each morning, drink coffee and eat pancakes!


I am also very excited because I have been planning a very special Christmas holiday for our family this year...we are going to Paris!

I took this picture of the Notre Dame Catholic Cathedral in the fourth arrondissement when we were last in Paris in 2008

So for this week's #FashionFriday post and I have created a Polyvore set all about Paris! It features my very favourite French style icon Audrey Tautou.


Paris!




Can you tell that I might be just a little bit excited about our trip?

I am also excited for another reason-last Saturday's Say G'Day Linky party was the biggest one yet! 90 sweet bloggers linked up and said G'day! I can't believe it! Thank you so much to every single one of my sweet bloggy friends who joined in. If you haven't checked out the amazing links from last week yet please just click here!

Here are the top five links from last week's party!

Rhonda from A Blissful Spirit linked up a post about her Dream Laundry Room. Isn't it brilliant!

Betsy Speert shared some wonderful ideas about remembering the little details when decorating. Isn't her home divine!


BJ from Sweet Nothings reminded us about the importance of family and shared some beautiful family snaps in honour of Father's day.

Amber from Salt Tree shared some pictures of projects she has been doing in her backyard. Isn't this birdcage planter cute!

Finally, Sarah from Hyacinths for the Soul shared some ideas on how to create a beachy tablescape.

Thank you to everyone who linked up to the Say G'day Party! I truly appreciate your support.

Please come back tomorrow to join me for another Say G'Day Saturday Linky party, a weekly link up for recipes, tutorials, DIY projects, gardening tips, instagram pics, Pinterest Round Up Posts, your linky parties...anything at all!

Tuesday Tune ~ Winter Songs featuring Mumford & Sons and Sara Bareilles.

Welcome friends to this week's Tuesday Tune post! I'm so glad you stopped by to hear my favourite song of the week. Actually, this week I am sharing two songs because I couldn't decide which one to share because I love them both!

This week's tunes are both very wintery because we are in the middle of winter over here in Australia, time for hot chocolates, warm blankets and comfort food!



Tuesday Tune, Winter Songs, Mumford and Sons, Sara Bareilles, Burberry






For the best and most pungent taste, crumble a wedge of domestic Maytag blue cheese with a fork rather than using prepackaged crumbled cheese.
Recipe: Blue Cheese Spread




I hope that my Northern Hemisphere friends enjoy a little break from the heat and that all of my friends Down Under enjoy these two beautiful Winter Songs featuring Mumford & Sons and Sara Bareilles/Ingrid Michaelson.





Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under today. I hope that I will see you again soon.


Best wishes for a wonderful week,
Natasha In Oz
