2012 in review

31 Dec

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.

Christmas Inspiration

21 Dec

Here is the Christmas table Sam and I decorated last year. The theme was a ‘picnic on the veranda’ and there was an abundance of bright colours in keeping to Nest’s mantra. We also made the super quirky xmas tree’s, out of old mag’s.

Ruth Duke Installation

17 Dec

Check out this amazing installation by Ruth Duke Interiors. It is a play room for 4 children – 2 girls & 2 boys – all under the age of 5. They use it for their tutor lessons, art, gym, reading & general play time. What a fantastic space. They have also incorporated a whole lot of Nest products too, see if you can spot them. Thanks guys for including us in this great project.
