Big day out

Today we are off to get new school shoes and then on to Chadstone for some fun,

We have birthday party presents to buy,

And of course, a visit to the Laura Ashley shop, just for a look. (this is similar to the last cushion I bought from Laura Ashley).

Chicken House

Hello, my next project, apart from all the old pieces of furniture I have been gathering to paint is a chicken house.  I'm so excited.  I have purchased their house and I'm nearly ready to get some chickens.  What sort, well I have no idea.  A bit of google research and I'm sure I will be able to confidently make my decision.

I would love a picket fence like this one around my chicken yard.

and of course another hedge, you can never over hedge.

and wouldn't it be lovely to have a couple of garden experts to oversee the whole project, there is also many many other projects to be done.

Have a Happy Australia Day

Roses and Hydrangeas

My new roses are growing really well, most of the roses I have planted are David Austin.  I put them in last July.  I have added some to one of my hydrangea flowers for a bouquet that I put together for a friend.

Just relaxing

Afternoon tea with Jessie and friends

Happy New Year to you all, hope your enjoying your time with family and friends. 
We are spending time at the beach, in the garden and with lots of visitors.

I love these old vintage outdoor settings, this one belongs to a friend.   I do prefer it all the one colour, they used to be painted in different colours, red, green, yellow, white, I think.  I will have to get a photo from my mum, my grandparents had one. x
