House Nerd | Maya Anderson  🏘 Journalist, blogger πŸ“„ Home Edit column @stmperth 🌿 Mat leave - collab spots March 19 πŸ”¨ Will still be renovating when I'm πŸ‘΅πŸ½ 🌏 Perth AU

πŸ’¬ Hello. Thank you for your email. If I do not respond in a timely manner, it is because I am being held hostage by a small goblin with Trump hair. Please send coffee. Also, seriously thinking about hiring a VA in 2019 to help me with admin and my inbox - has anyone done this? Any recommendations, do's/don'ts? πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»

Making Christmas wreaths with my little man. Me to my mum: "Mama! Look at my star."
My mum: "......... is it finished?" πŸ™„
Me to my 3yo son: "Look!" Him: *gasps* "Mama! That looks AMAZing."
I'm just gonna go straight to him next time 😌

I hadn't been to @johnstcafe in Cottesloe in ages and since then they've renovated - it's light and bright and beautiful but better yet filled with amazing art for sale (and books!) Had a great coffee here with the wonderfully warm @gaildellart talking all things work, Perth, walking clubs and greyhounds 🐾 At risk of sounding corny, sometimes I think how different my work and life is just because of @instagram. I've met so many wonderful people and have made some of my closest and most like-minded friends through this app. For a freelancer who's worked from home for ten years (woah πŸ€”) and as one who never used to make good friends through the work I used to do, that's been something I feel quite grateful for! Also, if you love landscape paintings with colours and layers that will make you feel happy, make sure you head down here for a coffee (her pieces are all over the cafe) or check them out at @gaildellart or @gaildell.studiosale - have long loved her work 😍 (and it's even prettier in person - swipe to see more glimpses).

Past me: "A succulent Christmas tree! πŸŽ„πŸ€“ Why, that will be a fun and easy Christmas DIY I can do with my three year old πŸ€©πŸ™„ Let's overlook the fact that he can't even put his shoes on by himself." Well I was very wrong about this being a good kiddie DIY, but it's finally done, it looks good from this very specific angle and my toddler has added "sphagnum moss" to his vocabulary.

Ugh, I have been obsessed with this mid-century building on Canning Highway in Melville since I was a kid and now one of the apartments has gone on the market. Look at it 🀀 Ahhhhhhh. Can someone buy it so I can get it out of my head and then can we can be friends so I can visit all the time? Will pop a link to the listing in my stories. *Not sponsored; I'm just a stalker freak. πŸ€“ On the market with @drivenpropertygroup πŸ“Έ @propertydigitalau

At the risk of sounding like my mother, a clean home is such a nice way to start the weekend off right! Just had a really good clean done by @flashmopapp. Literally JUST the other week I was thinking it would be so good if more cleaners offered affordable one-off cleans that you could book in online when it suits you. We don't have a regular cleaner at the moment - partly because we've spent a lot on renos this year and have been budgeting; partly because our weekly schedules change so much especially with my freelance, which also can be a little 'feast or famine' when it comes to my invoices getting paid on time! So I've always liked the idea of being able to book in a pro clean when you really need it. Literally right after I was thinking that, I heard about @flashmopapp. Founder, Perth mother and entrepreneur Megan Harrison wanted to create a way for busy people to book in cleans with trusted, reviewed cleaners at the touch of a button, all with set, transparent pricing. She launched Flash Mop in October and it's already going strong, and though just in Perth for now they have plans to expand. Our cleaner was so friendly and efficient and I was really impressed. My mum always loves to tell me (pointedly πŸ™„πŸ˜‚) that "a clean house is a happy house", but for me working from home and with two little ones, I find a clean house helps my focus. Anyway, it's a very handy app and I have a great giveaway coming up with these guys very soon, so stay tuned! .

Well this was fun ✨ @westelmaus always have such thoughtful special gatherings when they come to Perth and today's was no exception, a ceramics workshop making Christmas decorations from clay with @winterwares at @stackwood_ followed by lunch and ice creams from @kuld_creamery (yes I realise I look disturbingly happy about the icecream cone 🀨🍦Need to work on my chilly aloof face πŸ’€ ) I love Christmas, but it's easy to get caught up in the manic rush that is this time of the year and this was such a nice chance to slow down for a little while. If you ever get a chance to do a workshop with @winterwares or just a workshop at Stackwood in general you so should! πŸ‘πŸ½ I want to be Simone Nabholz 🀩 @potterybarnaus @williamssonoma

I take this photo at @_bibntucker this morning. My Instagram husband rolls his eyes: "Coffee flatlays are SOOO 2014." πŸ™„πŸ§ WELL THEN. I'd like to say I've trained him well, but that would not be accurate (he still refuses to take 214 candid photos of me at any given moment) but at least he waited to drink his coffee until I took my pic (still training Instagram Toddler, as evidenced by small sneaky hand going for marshmallow... unless he was going for the casual 'reaching for food' style? πŸ€” ) But how pretty is this tiled table.

New furniture on our new deck πŸ˜† We can't get over how much having the patio and deck has changed our home and way of living. It feels like we've added another room to our house and doubled our living space. Has anyone else found that with an updated outdoor space? I've loved this bamboo outdoor setting the Saffron from @earlysettlerfurniture from the moment I clamped eyes on it and always envisioned it on the deck even before we had one. It arrived yesterday and already it's been so nice to sit out here with the little ones πŸ‘¦πŸ½πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸΆ We'll also get two armchairs to go with it and another side table (that's the Cooper from their natural collection). Still bits of the garden to finish but taking shape.

3/4 looking at the camera and 2/4 actually smiling. I'll put this in my small but slowly increasing "win" pile.
