A little bit of a change to our loungeroom this weekend at Casa Guedes. We changed the wall colour from plain old white to a deep blue. I love it; the whole mood of the room has changed and all of the artwork, as well as the wood, really pops against the blue.

When I was small I had a Dean's Fairytale book and I remember reading it, but in particular, spending hours gazing at the illustrations. Yesterday I saw on Pinterest that one of Milk magazines new shoots features an image of a little girl wearing an almighty paper hat and reading a Dean's fairytale book.

Such a happy day: my Marimekko for Target loot finally arrived from the USA!
A friend of my husband's kindly let me ship it to his house in California, as Target don't ship internationally. (Target Australia, you should really rethink a collab with Marimekko).
Everything is amazing and such beautiful quality that I really wish I'd bought more. I tried to stick to practical and light to ship stuff, which meant no hammock, boogie board or tents unfortunately!
The best things are the tea towels, I'm so glad I bought four. They are great quality, thick cotton.
The bag is also lovely - and HUGE! It'll be great for Summer.
I love the flip flops, or thongs, as we call them in Australia, although the print will be hidden underfoot when I wear them. Boo.
The platter is nice but probably the only thing I don't loooooove. I'm glad I didn't buy more platters, as I was definitely considering buying lots of these pieces. They are melamine, which is great for picnicware, but the print isn't super great quality. I don't know, it looks a little faded. Don't get me wrong, I like it. It just doesn't seem as good quality as the other pieces, which are very impressive, considering the Target price tags.
I'm a very happy camper all in all though! Yay Target for Marimekko, an overall thumbs up!
