Vintage music sheets..

I found some vintage music sheets hidden away in a drawer..
They're too sweet to stay in there..
I got four frames some time ago at a charity shop for $1 each..
They're old and chippy, just the way I like them..
I just popped in the sheet music..
Attached a ribbon..
Now they adorn my lounge room wall..
Simple,sweet and shabby...Perfect!

Fall flowers

Our Autumn (fall) is here and I thought I'd share some of my gardens delights..
My son just got a new camera so I'm having some fun with it..

My roses are having one final bloom..
The crocus have popped up..
The bird of paradise is looking so majestic..

Alyssum is blanketing the ground..

The bouganvillea is gorgeous..

I know soon the frost will come and my garden will be miserable, so I'm making the most of it's beauty now..
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend..

Happy Spring...

Thought I'd wish all my northern hemisphere friends a happy Spring beginning..
After the wild winter you've all had I can only imagine how nice the sun must be starting to feel..

We're into Autumn (fall) and the rain is falling,the day is crisp and I'm loving it.

Looking forward to adding extra layers to the bed covers and trudging around in my Ugh boots..
Winter here, is nothing compared to what you guys get but it's still cold enough for me to usually complain about it..
Hope you all have a wonderful beginning to your first Spring week.
Stay safe..xx

Relaxing Saturday...

Finally, I have been able to sit down with my cuppa and check out what all you fabulous people have been up to.
I'm am always inspired,surprised and amazed to see what you've been doing.
I've just started a new job so my projects have been put on the backburner.
So whilst I navigate around blogland and visit everyone ,I'll leave you with a quick "Winston" update.
He's now four and a half months old.
Cute as a button and as crazy as ever.
My boys couldn't imagine life without him now,even the handymans quite captivated.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay safe..

Updating you all on what I've been up to.

Kitchen Kapers

I've decided I'm going to give the kitchen a little revamp..
So I've been ogling other peoples gorgeous ideas..
A lick of paint will be in order..
Thinking about removing some doors to have more open shelving to display my pretties.
Definetly new hardware..
The images below from some very creative people sure have me inspired ..
Tomorrow I'm going to take action..
Not sure how much action but I'll be sure to keep you updated..
