I have always coveted hanging chairs,
and have almost bought a few over the years, but then just didn't.
This is my latest infatuation,
the 'garden of eden' birdcage hanging chair by Ontwerpduo in the Netherlands

Tamar Morgendorff

here is a sneak peak at the new work of Tamar,
she does creates the most exquisite, whimsical little creatures....

I'm not sure why, but for some reason I have decided the best thing to do in 44 degree heat is to clean the outside of my house?
splashing all that soapy water about the weatherboards was very satisfying.....
another good thing for these hot days is washing quilts, they dry in no time,
soak them in the bath and walk up and down on them,
then drain them and rinse in cool water,
dry on the clothes line,
fresh clean quilts, lovely...
