The White Shed

There is nothing better than discovering a new blog. All of a sudden, you find yourself spending hours online, delaying your bedtime and eyes sore from the glare. When that blog author is a local and turns out to know half of your friends, you are overcome with excitement and even a sense of pride!
Letitia Linke of The White Shed has injected some serious style into the Yorke Peninsula with her stunning collection of homewares and gifts. She has set up a beautiful store in the shed on her farm and opens once a week when fans from the land over travel from far and wide to delve in to her treasures.
But wait. The best bit. She's online and accessible to us mere mortals who live in the hustle and bustle of the city. Letitia has an online catalogue and order form and can organise delivery right to your door. She's also recently ventured into Blog-land and reveals some insightful tricks of the trade and projects she's been working on. To think, she runs a farmhouse (stunning! Unlike any farmhouse I've ever seen! Yep, that heaven of a home above is hers!), a business, and chases after her two little boys! Talk about inspiring!

I was over the moon to have Letitia stop by on Friday night for a little consultation. SO much fun! She was full of great ideas and got me thinking outside the square - conscious that I'm on a strict budget, she focused on how to work with what I've got and suggested simple things that I can do over a weekend to make massive changes to my little place.

I am SO excited to get started and am itching to move some key pieces around - lots of painting to do first - white is our best friend, Letitia! Small steps, but we'll get there.
In the meantime, I indulged in some retail therapy and bought a gorgeous flower necklace from The White Shed - see above. However did I get by without Mrs Linke?!
