Patio Thursday

I love the painted ceilings,

the square white columns,

the french doors,

the pots and fireplace,

this is just beautiful,

all ready for entertaining, just need to add food and wine.
Enjoy your day.x

Let the sun shine in

I'm loving this look at the moment,

I have the perfect spot to add a conservatory type place,

sunshine, a gorgeous cream sofa, and oh the cushions, all bright colours,

imagine the boxed hedge that would have to be planted outside,

the perfect spot for hight tea, don't you think.
Happy Sunday.x

Flower Friday

I planted these gorgeous pansies, I just got them in before the rain started, don't they look happy :)

I have been over visiting Martha again, and these Dahlias look gorgeous,

this David Austin rose is from my garden, way back when we had spring.

the foxgloves were beautiful, too.
Have a fabulous Friday.x

Entertaining, a few parties and a basketball semi final

I really enjoyed my last issue of Belle magazine, I especially loved the bright pink sparkly "belle" on the front,


blue and silver,

pink and blue,


this little plate of mine is waiting for me to hang it up, I bought it from Anthropologie in New York.  I loved that store.  I carried three of them home so carefully.

Do you collect anything on your travels?

A long long weekend

(images from

We attended a basketball tournament in Ballarat, for three days, I know what your thinking, but we had a lot of fun.  Ballarat is a beautiful town full of so many period homes,

I came home and bought these beads from the Spotlight sale, half price

I found this little treasure in a lovely shop in Clunes, a small town near Ballarat,


last week I bought theses fabrics, the gorgeous one on top is from
Thea and Sammi over here.

painted this,

This is an old picture, but I love it.  Time to cut back all the David Austin roses now.
Happy Friday.x

Blue velvet

I am loving blue velvet at the moment, I would prefer the pale blue, but this picture above had a cat sitting there, looking quite settled in.  Very gorgeous.

These colours are lovely arent they, I knew you would love them.
Happy Weekend. xxx

Living room Friday

(image from decorpad)

Cosy, with a fireplace, and very tidy, and oh so symetrical, but I wouldn't be able to help myself and add some cushions with a bit of colour, and some little vases full of roses from the garden.  Gorgeous.

Have a lovely weekend.x
