it was a gift given to me from my wonderful friends.
i also received this beautiful black baroque style photo frame and a little black jewelery box! these girls really do know my taste!

the earrings are available from forever new and funnily enough both the two candle holders as well as the mirror jewelery box were all from target!

i received an amazing collection of lovely gifts from my friends, family and extended family and i'd just like to say thank-you so much and oh crap, what ever will i get you for your birthdays?!

twenty-one today

although i'm now twenty-one i'm still a 11 year old trapped in a 16 year old's body. one day i'll probably be grateful for that!

anyway, i had a lovely black and white cocktail night at my house to celebrate my coming of age and everyone looked so brilliant in their formal attire. While decorating i discovered this beautiful candelabra of mums, hidden in the laundry cupboard!

i'm unquestionably stealing it when i move out!

lighten up

so what's another obsession of mine?
lighting. i can't go past a lighting shop or department without looking in; even though i can't put them anywhere yet. my main weakness in particular- chandeliers! so dramatic and feminine. i pray for a house with high ceilings!

this modernized silver chrome luxe chandelier is amazing. and i also wouldn't mind the matching table lamp too thank-you!

little joseph

gorgeous or grotesque? sinister or sweet? there is certainly something unsettling about these porcelain candle holders, but i've decided that they're devine.

use a dripless candle to keep their heads bald, if not, fashion them with locks of beeswax.
at around AU$150 a head, means i'll start saving now!

beetle juice

over time you will come to understand my adoration of wallpaper.
this pattern is a current favourite of mine, probably because it's weird, mostly because it's unique, and surprisingly because it's sold in australia.

christmas beetle is available in an assortment of colours, but the blue and the black are my beloved.

to begin

welcome to baroque bird! this blog is all about attractive, well-designed finds from a bit of everywhere.
i'm itching to buy a new home for myself and to fill it with lovely things. so i thought i'd put a collection of home wares, fashion, gift ware and other assorted treasures together to share with you all!
so to begin, these adorable salt & pepper shakers with the very appropriate name, were my first discoveries that i bought to begin my collection for my future home.

bring the love to the table.
