Outdoor Entertaining



Doesn't this little hideaway look welcoming.
  It's almost like a big persons cubby house, but with champaign.

Vintage christmas baubles

Anthopologie, New York


This is the one of the window displays from Anthropologie, New York.  Such a beautiful shop. 



This is a beautiful tree from Macys department store.  Our trip was 18 months ago.  I would love to visit again.

Beautiful rooms






I really love this room, I think it might be the soft pink cushions, the sheers over the tall window and of course the chandelier.

This one is very formal, and again has the most beautiful chandelier.  I also love matching pieces but different sytles, just like the chairs in the picture.

Friday Inspiration - Santas coming



The thought of Christmas can sometimes be quite frightful when you think of what we have to achieve between now and the big day.  School camps, exams, Spring racing carnival (I just found the most gorgeous headpiece) end of year celebrations everywhere, spring cleaning before christmas, shopping, shopping and shopping and that is for everyone else not us.


And then there is your food preparation for the day or days after.



And what about the tree, I still love our annual event of choosing our tree, It can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 25 minutes, this can be an afternoon event for us, once we get to the christmas tree farm, everyone's thirsty, and then we have to have a chat to the local cockatoo and then wait for the train to take us out to the paddock to select our tree.  (Yes i know Bunnings have them right on their door step, but theres no train ride). 
 


But with the help of all you clever bloggers, with design tips, entertaining tips I think we can do it.  Have a fun weekend.x

Beautiful Dormer


Beautiful dormer..........




I love this idea, building a window seat with cabinets at either end when you don't actually have a window seat.  Both of these designs are from Smarin.com.

This room just smiles back at you, light and bright and oh so clean. Look at those floors.
