Somethings Gotta Give Frenzy

This image has sparked many a decorating frenzy and I know I have showed it before, but I just love it and thought it fitting for a restful Friday post.
Today has been much better and I think my run last night really cleared my head. Mason is over his bubble intoxication ;0) and all is looking good for the weekend.
The La Balloon cover I showed yesterday has been sold and I hope to make up some more and re stock the shop this weekend.
I also endeavour to do some little changes to our house if I get the time...I watched my favourite movie 'Somethings Gotta Give' and drooled over the sets house, which had me looking around at what I could do in here to get 'the feel'.
If you are after some inspiration this weekend, head over to Joni's blog Cote De Texas and click on her interview with the extremely talented Beth Rubino, who is the wonder behind the set looking like somewhere I could move into tomorrow...she even gives up where the blue striped rug came from.
Have a great one,
Ness xx


  1. LOVE the image Ness! Can't say I've seen it before so I'm happy that you posted it again.
    I can't believe I'm saying this but...I haven't seen "Something's Gotta Give". I know, I know, where've I been right?! I had better get myself down to the video (or is that DVD now) store and hire a copy ASAP.

  2. it's totally frenzy-worth Ness, it's lovely!!


  3. Love it! Simple, homey, cozy. My style.

  4. I love this room. I love your pillows on etsy also. You are very creative and Talented.

  5. I haven't seen this one Ness, but it is absolutely gorgeous! That little cabinet with the sign on top.. yum! No wonder it inspires many frenzies...
    Glad your run helped, I find it so refreshing too.

  6. That image is absolutely swoon-worthy! LOVE. Happy weekend Ness.

  7. More gorgeous images, but I am completely besotted with your pieces that make you smile in your own home from yesterdays post. That little balloon cushion I want!!! Glad to hear the detergent swiller is OK. Phew!!

  8. What a wonderful post Ness! That image is divine!! Somethings Gotta Give is my all time favourite movie too!! Thanks for the info regarding Cote de Texas, I will be popping on over:) Can't wait to see the changes you are making to your house, but I think your house is divine just the way it is! So glad you had a good Friday & wishing you a wonderful weekend - Tina xx

  9. Glad to hear that all is well in your household.
    Keep on showing us that image - love it
    Have a great weekend

  10. Hi Ness,

    Glad to hear Mason is feeling okay now. Your image for Friday is gorgeous. The images I have seen of Nancy Fishelson work are always stunning. I have had to make the dreaded school shopping trip into town for school shoes, cut a long story short, ended up in Ulverstone and happened to park outside an antique shop and they had a bentwood chair sitting out the front. Armed with the information you gave I went and had a look at it, and they had it on special for $65, solid seat on it, but still quite rickety. Didn't buy it but nice to see, did you ever buy the one you saw? Have a great weekend.
    Take care

  11. Great picture. I want that room! Glad your little man is feeling better. Have a nice weekend :)

  12. Love that room, its my favorite style! iam heading over now. Lulu

  13. Oh, that house...that house...THAT HOUSE!!! I already had the video, but bought the "Something's Gotta Give" dvd just the other day to see the special features on the house...that dreamy dreamy house! I'll have to remember to watch it soon.

    I hope you are having a dreamy weekend!

  14. Hi Ness,
    Glad to hear Mason is doing better. Great pillows, love them. I love Anthropologie too, check out Potterybarn and Restoration Hardware, they have some great things there also. Keep us posted on your bath, I can't wait until it is done. It will look great, because you have great taste.
