A bit of bedroom fun

image; unknown....sorry, must've collected it during a stressful time (!!)
Well, Petit's bedroom improvements are in their final stages and while it will look nothing like the room above, I think this is a cute space - slightly frou, frou (ie. soft furnishings) but with a bit of edge (eames chair and orange shelving). Also, I love me a built in bed, that's next on the agenda. I'm getting before and after shots ready for your perusal and really loooking forward to sharing them with you.

The Worst Blogger Ever...

image; available via
....that would be me!

I know the rules, I know what works in the bloggation stakes; -consistency, interesting topics, a bit of style, humour, pretty pictures, unique voice, commenting, enjoying the blogging creativity of others...and I have been failing dismally on all fronts...! I realise, I really do.

So, thank you for bearing with me - as I write there are 64 lovely public followers - I am so grateful to you each. You have followed this blog when really, there's not been much to follow!!

Life is a little nuts, to say the least. L'Homme learns to walk and talk and reach a level of independance again, which means I am left to do everything else. No complaints, that's life, that is the hand that this household has been dealt and we're getting on with it. Honestly, what other choice do we have?!

In the coming days, I'll add a story or two of interest. You can see the Expedit shelf that I put together all by myself! And how I have made a few adjustments to Petit's room. I'll start talking about Galerie Montmartre and some of the developments that are going on there. I'll get it together and I'll really enjoy it....and we'll get the wheels of Femme de M turning again.

Love to you all. x

Ikea, you finally got me...

Well, it looks like I am now one of those 25% of people in the world who owns one of the top four Ikea items - Expedit shelving. Petit's room, while gorgeous in colour and style, is a storage nightmare. Being slightly time poor (I know, who isn't, right?!), I haven't been able to get to any of my favourite places to find something unique. So, after many months of cringing everytime I went near that bedroom, I caved, drove the few short miles to Ikea (with a man friend to get the thing in the back of the car - yes, I caved there too...) picked up the Expedit shelving and look forward to setting it up - quickly.

Before and after shots to be taken....I keep promising, but they'll happen, I swear. x

Hello Autumn!

I really love this season, and I know most Melbournites are busy lamenting the lack of summer weather this year, but for me, Autumn is always welcome...besides March usually provides some scorching hot days.

In my beautiful part of the world Autumn heralds in three events that I adore;
- Food and Wine Festival;
- start of the Australian Rules Football season;
- International Comedy Festival.

Love it. x
