I was so flattered to be in such amazing company in Australia's Real Living magazine this month. Anna from Absolutely Beautiful Things was featured in their November issue, as well. Her home has all the texture, color and lightness I love. Since we're having a heck of a time finding the magazine here in the States, I wanted to share some of the beautiful photographs of her home, and her shop, Black & Spiro, in Brisbane, Australia (thanks again to Jo for these photos!).

Again, nice to be in your good company, Anna, and I hope one of us jumps across
the big pond one day soon so we might meet. Your home, and shop look stunning.
