Finally I have some flowers out on my hydrangeas.  They seem to love where I've planted them.

Some more butterflies and roses.


Enjoy your week.

Blue Inspiration

Lately I'm really enjoying this colour, apart from my boys rooms, I don't have many blue pieces around my home.

I did find a blue owl, but again this is in my youngest ones room.

And some blue storage boxes hidden away in my office.

My hydrangeas aren't quite up to this yet, this is their second season in my
garden, should be flowering soon.

This is a picture from Laura Ashley, I love this quilt cover.

Butterflies and roses

One of my butterfly pictures.

To fill in some wall space, I brought some frames from Adairs, I added some butterflies from a scrapbooking store.  The butterflies come on a sheet of paper and you just pop them out.  They are in shades of pink and of course green, even some blue ones tooA very quick project, if you don't include the shopping.

Thursday Tree

Image from Southern Living

After finding this beautiful christmas tree, I came to realise that I need more lights.  But definately not baubles, I have way too many, must stop buying christmas baubles.  I think its all the bright colours, I really can't stop.

I can't wait to put our tree up this year, have I mentioned we all trek out to the paddocks at the christmas tree farm on a train (well a kind of tractor train with carriages) and we are then set free to wonder and choose a tree of our choice, tag it and then its cut down and taken back for us.

This whole adventure requires the trailer, which means a trip to the tip before the christmas tree farm.  Enjoy your day.

Monday couch

These beautiful couches are by Candice Olson, I love how fresh they look.  I so love a nice couch, and chandelier, and white wooden painted staircases and window trim, they are only a few.  mmmmmmm

I would love a new setting in our family room.  There are so many choices and fabrics and styles to choose from, where does one start.

Just arrived home from a lovely stay in Singapore, luckily for my family we were travelling home with Singapore Airlines and managed to avoid the engine explosion on the other airline.  We enjoyed Universal Studios, a Singapore Sling at Raffles and Halloween celebrations at the zoo, not to mention the fabulous food.

Cakes from the shop at Marina Bay Sands.

Raffles Hotel

My Singapore Sling at Raffles.

Desk in our room.  Nice and tidy before we unpacked at Marina Bay Sands

We couldn't get to the pool soon enough.  Singapore is very hot, so a dip at the end of the day is a must, and first thing in the morning too.  But i did wait till the afternoon dip for cocktails.  I enjoy going away, but I really love coming back home too.  Now for Christmas.
