Sunday Dreams..

I love Sundays..

We can all sleep in..

It's our relaxing day..

A day to fill my head with a dreamy wish list..

* Floaty lines with ruffles*

(Cottage Chic)

*A chandelier dripping with bling*

(Z Gallerie)

*Vintage pastel party dresses*


*Pretty pale pink roses*

(This next)

*The perfect cup of tea to finish the day*

I truly adore Sundays....

Sweet chair redo..

I found this little chair by the roadside a while back..

Whilst visiting all the fabulous blogs I became inspired..

I love the look of vintage grain sacks..

I've never been able to find any..(believe me I've looked)

So I thought I'd give it a go..

I had the linen type fabric and paint so it was a free redo (yippee)..

I know it's by no means perfect (far from it in fact)..

I chose the letter "M" as it's the Initial of our surname..

It's going in our master bedroom when I finish the mini makeover..

This mini makeover is taking me ages..

I've just about finished my bedhead..

I'll reveal it when our new ensemble arrives..

Till then, I'll keep you all in suspense..

Wonderful weekend

I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful weekend..

I'm painting our bedhead today in a pale french grey..

The weather is Spring spectacular..

30 degrees celsius or about 86 fahrenheit..

Hope whatever you're doing is filled with joy..

The affair..


It's all good, my handy man already knows about it..

You see I'm having an affair..

An affair of the heart..

An affair of the swedish kind..

Not the tall, gorgeous and blonde kind of affair..

But the big, spacious,inspiring and addictive kind..

I'm in love with IKEA!!!!!
Whilst redoing our master bedroom I've been visiting my new love..

I've had stolen moments...Dreamy moments...

Oh yes and some lovely exchanges(of the cash kind)..

Guess what, I'm even happy to share my new love with others..

So do tell..are you secretly in love as well?

New lamp...

Some of you may remember I'm in the process of giving our master bedroom a little facelift..

It's taking longer than expected as we had to order our ensemble from Melbourne..

But in the mean time I'm getting the extras ready..

I won two of these lamps on ebay..

They were the right shape,but wrong colour lampshade..

Nothing a little makeover magic won't fix..

I painted the shades a very pale french grey..

Made the white ruffles from cotton strips..Sewed them on by hand..

I'm so happy with the result..

One down ...One to go..

A new table..

I have been looking for a new entry table for a while now.

My entry way is small.

Today on ebay I found the one.

She's just perfect.

So I thought I'd just share her with you.

I'm calling the table a girl because of her lovely curves.

Isn't she sweet?
