Appley Hoare and La Bastide...

Appley and her daughter Zoe Hoare are the owners and founders of a highly successful French antiques store in the popular Pimlico road area of London. Appley is my mothers favourite designer and she's followed her career pretty much since it's begining in Australia. Hopefully with fingers crossed my mum and I are planning a trip to London and Provence next year and we'll finally get the

YAY 100th post!

(cake that) (google)Happy 100th post anniversary to me :)Like most bloggers, when I started I never expected to make it to 100 and I also never expected to love blogging as much as I do. I can't tell you how much it's helped and encouraged me to stick with and work at the path I have chosen in regards to my design studies.For quite a few years I was stuck in a rut and immersed myself in the life

New friends :)

Bloglandia is just full of surprises everyday. I have been so fortunate to have been introduced to some incredibly beautiful blogs over the last few days and I'm so excited about them I had to spread the word.The House That A-M built is a wonderful blog by a Queensland mum and online boutique owner who takes us on a journey as her family builds their dream home. I am proud to say I even

Lovely Laundries...

(The above 2 images are courtesy of Hamptons Designs) One of the major reasons for my lack of posts over the past few weeks has been due to my commitment towards my Interior Design studies. The assigments have been quite intense yet incredibly enjoyable.I've had to distinguish between good and bad design and not to confuse that with good and bad aesthetics.I've had to put some colour schemes

Enchanting courtyards...

The last couple of posts have got me thinking *ouch* lol, one of my favourite things to do when visiting my mum is sit in her Tuscan inspired courtyard and in summer enjoy the trickling sound of the water feature and in winter enjoy the crackling sound of her chimenea.Just like my mum, I'm always drawn to homes that feature a courtyard - especially of the european variety ;)Courtyards like in

A blissful moment...

(click image for an enlarged view) Country weekend homes was one of the cheapest books I ever bought and after a couple of years still one of my favourites to read. Images like the one above truly make me happy....so simple yet so so beautiful :)

Some small Fighting Engine revisions..

Ya nothing major, just popping in to let you all know I'm alive. Actually have been entirely immersed in something other than coding for most of the past year so please forgive me. I know a bunch of you have written to me mostly in regards to the SplatterHouse tutorials but I've been bombarded with so many mails about them that I if I can't get round to you all, once again, I apologise.

I'm so limited for time these days that I've had no chance to sit down and have a pint with my old mate Flash. Actually started a prototype of a Last Ninja remake the other day, got my little ninja leaping around in isometric up already. Definitely getting more comfortable with AS3 these days too.

Just a wee update to the fighting engine I posted before. There's tons of bugs in there I know, but it's getting there, wouldn't you agree? I figure I'll design the whole game first using known sprites as placeholder, then swap them for custom graphics when it's all done. Feel free to decompile this little demo, but be warned the code is dirty, so much so it almost makes me cringe to look at it. I treat me code like my woman folks, beat it around and get it to do what you want whether it wants to or not.

Ok back to the real world. またね

Busy times...

Greetings blogging pals :)Apologies for my non existent posts this week, my excuses range from catching up on housework after children were home on a 2 week break from school, assignments due for my design studies and a faulty internet cable *exhales*Today was a gorgeous day as the sun was warm and bright and bff Brook and I took ourselves off to the Sydney HIA home show :)I'd never been to a
