Rainy weekend blues

My big plans for the weekend have been thwarted by the cold and the rain. I am now in hibernation mode. I shall see you all again in summer as I will not be leaving the house again until it's warm and sunny and lovely.

Lots of lazing in bed, a bbq, braving the rain to see Barksdale Brass @ Blackbear Lodge, and will finally be seeing The Avengers tonight at the movies. (Maybe I'll bake cookies for a sneaky snack).
Sadly I'm taking a "rain check" on the markets for fresh fruit & veges. :(  I was looking forward to the markets so much!!

Here are some things to look at this rainy, snuggly weekend.

I WANT this bear pencil holder from the Tara Hogan Ink+Wit Etsy shop. (Although I think it should be a porcupine)

This house is so beautiful - I found it on the Colorful Homes tumblr, I can't tear my eyes away from this blog. I am lusting after this one particular room, I could spend hours just sitting in this room.
 After some more research, I discovered that this is the home of Doug Aitken -
See the whole house and NYTimes article here.

His home is literally an artwork - "Acid Modernism" video below:

My new favourite shop Sian Keegan on Etsy sells pet portraits, plushy plants and animals. 
How cute would Pommy look as a plushy!?
And here are some pot plants that I would definitely be able to keep alive .

On Wednesday I met my good friend Rhianna at her boyfriend's specialty coffee and chocolate cafe, Bunker Coffee, in Milton. I love these vines...and the coffee is deeelicious.
