Friday nook and hedges with a garden bench

This little nook is in my kitchen, I love hedges and topiary plants, that lovely picture in the back ground is by Gail McCormack, so sweet

fresh flowers

my roses are blooming, just a small bunch for the front room, with my new Home Beautiful magazine

we recently visited Ashcombe Maze at Arthurs Seat,

Don't you just love a garden bench in front of a hedge, perfect.
Enjoy your Friday. The weekend is nearly here.x

bedroom nooks

I came across these beautiful bedroom nooks on

I love some colour, and white stacked bathroom towels, so civilised/organised,

All beautiful spaces to sit at

a bit of glamour in this one and all of that natural light is beautiful

Have a lovely Thursday.x

Oh, I love a chandelier in the garden, if only I had a tree near the house this big to hang one from, I coached our basketball team this morning, and guess what, we won.

Have a fabulous Saturday.x

White inspiration

Oh I love this stair case, it is so beautiful,

love white walls together with the cream sofa, very soothing, I would love to have walls like that,

and who wouldn't want to relax here,

gorgeous kitchen, I really like the tiles they have used,

another beautiful staircase,

could you just imagine the rooms off this gorgeous hallway,

(these beautiful pictures were found at decorpad)
a bit of storage,

(this one is my pic)
this is my gorgeous new cabinet, my library, and yes it is quite empty, I need some time to play around with it.

Enjoy your Sunday everyone.x

Happy Friday

I am pleased to announce I have temporarily moved on from pink and blue, to this colour arrangement.  I love it, so happy, don't you think.

today I picked up the new House and Garden magazine, I also have my Mum's Country Style magazine to read as well, I can't wait.

Here is a home from the House and Garden magazine, see the doggy in the corner, what a lovely home.

I guess we will be saying goodbye to hydrangeas soon, these are some of my last ones in flower. I can't wait till the Flower and Garden show.  Not long now.

I have some new followers this week, thank you for joining my blog.  Have a fabulous weekend everyone.x

I know we have barely recovered from Christmas, but these easter pictures from Martha Stewart are so cheerful, they will brighten your day.

I love these fabric cut outs from Martha, you can get the template from here.

This is a gorgeous idea, you can find Martha's instructions on how to make this bunny napkin here too.

Will you do an Easter tree this year.  I haven't for a long time.  I think I just might this year,  I love those little yellow, pink and blue chickens you can get, they all come packaged in their own families you know.

Enjoy your Thursday.x

It has been nearly four years since we moved into our new home.  Where has the time gone, I remember the day we moved in, I was up till 3am excitedly unpacking, just had to get it done. At midnight we had a knock on the door from a film crew wanting to film from our property up the road, maybe for a commercial. 

after we finally had our building permit approval it took only ten months from beginning to end,

we did move in with the plumber still here and the painter too, all the excavating was finished though,

Our neighbours were very friendly and keen to meet us, so keen they broke through the fences and parked themselves outside our bedroom window, a bit of a shock when your not used to cows waking you up, but they were a friendly bunch.

The Melbourne Flower and Garden show is coming up at the end of March, I can't wait. 

I love the garden show, so much inspiration for the garden before winter settles in down here, and its too cold to go outside.  Hope you day is fabulous.x
