Finally... The Dresser...

Finally I have gotten round to my old dresser..

You may remember it from long ago..

I made up a very faint french grey colour..

The crystal knobs add a bit of shabbiliciousness (just pretend it's a real word)..

Lightly sanded edges..

Love the original old key..

It sits below my cupboard that stores my fabric stash..

Another project complete...YEAH..

Little cupboard redo..

The spring weather is glorious..

So I thought I'd get to some back logged projects..

My handyman made this in his final year of high school many moons ago..

He did such a great job..

It's solid and very cute..

I wasn't going to paint it,but he encouraged me too..

A couple of coats later ,a little sanding, new crystal knobs...

It's just perfectly divine..

Love it...

Welcome back Spring..

Today is the first day of our Spring..
As you know I've been out in the garden in my red gumboots..
*Bindi's killed - check
*Weeds pulled - check
*Pool all sparkly - check
*Talking to my flowers - check
Now Mother Nature, the rest is up to you.
My garden has already started to bloom and I'm so happy.
Thought I'd share a few snippets.
I love Spring..
Everything seems so much nicer this time of year..

My fragrant lavender..

An area of the front garden..

Bird of paradise..

Wonderful white lavender..

Tiny spring blooms..
