To celebrate my win of the luxurious reindeer hide above (from Koko Classics and via The Design Chaser), I’m calling time out for the duration of the kindy holidays.

Routine will be forgotten, and I’ll do my best to practise hibernating. There will be some extra play dates and adventures, lounging by the fire, baking, and… fingers crossed… some shelved projects getting dusted off and underway again.

A few moments in time might make it onto Instagram (@duckeggblueblog) or Facebook, so head there if you want a little dose of Duck Egg Blue.

Have a fabulous couple of weeks… I’ll be back real soon!

Thinking about log baskets


Hi Winter… nice that you waited until late May. I’m usually sick of lugging firewood already. This year, I’m determined to make it easier on myself with a superb log basket.

Counter clockwise from top:

Large Kobu basket from Freedom $99 – on the pricey side but also on the awesome side
Flax hamper from Homie $40 – a good size and I love the leather handles… but strong enough? Worth a try at that price.
Hogla basket from Trade Aid $75 – basic, functional, slim style
Rondo log basket from The Warehouse $30 (on sale now) – purpose built, nice shape and a bargain!

Hope you’re all keeping warm! Our insulation does seem to be helping but of course it’s not got reeeally cold yet…
