House and Garden Friday

This weekend I will be enjoying my new House and Garden magazine, "The White Issue", right above the H and G is my new plant, I love it, no watering, no sunlight, just a bit of a dusting,

here are some beautiful pages, filled with lots of inspiration for spring,

another beautiful garden,

and many light filled homes,
Happy weekend.x

Beach bag

I found this gorgeous fabric at our local Bargain Box fabric store, and a Kwik Sew pattern,

I swapped the button in the middle for a matching ribbon to tie into a bow,

and I had to add one of those little purses, made from a Nicole mallalieu pattern. One of my favourites.
I hope the sun is shining tomorrow where you are.x

Some Wednesday colour

Aren't these flowers beautiful, I love them

the fragrance from the hyacinth was lovely,


I spotted this hydrangea fabric at the recent Melbourne Design and Decoration show, it was so pretty, it would make a lovely cushion cover.
Enjoy your Wednesday.x

the Melbourne Flower and Garden show,

Hibiscus from Hawaii,


and a flower shop from New York,
I wish I was there too, have a fabulous Friday and keep warm.x

Spring and pink hydrangeas

The sun was out today, it was beautiful,

I'm looking forward to spring, to pick some of these,

drink some Heronswood champagne,  very special.

and many visits to Bunnings,

and pink hydrangeas,

I'm adding some alkaline to the soil, it will encourage all my hydrangeas to be pink, I love blue ones too, but, with my new commitment to duck egg blue cushions and lamp shades, I'm doing pink hydrangeas, I can't wait.
Have a fabulous Tuesday.x

Hedges and outdoor living

Oh, I'm off to Bunnings for something that will do this to my garden, you can never ever have enough hedging, so important in a garden, especially when you have small trees and lots of wind.

loving the outdoor drapes,

and the touches of blue and green over here.

Have a fabulous Friday.x

Happy Livingroom

Loving the bright colours, and not to mention the symetry here,

Isn't this lovely, looks like a nice comfy place to relax with a good book, or the laptop.
Enjoy your Wednesday.x

I'm looking at pelmet designs to go over my windows, I have three french doors with a window either side that look out to an entertaining area.

I have searched the internet for some designs, I'm not sure if I will do a pleated box, or just cover the pelmets in fabric.

and then, what fabric to choose, the choices are endless.  Any ideas?
