Briohny from French doors and Verandahs has asked me to share some of our building plans.
In the coming months I will be posting regular updates on the build as well as asking for peoples advice and opinions on the finishings.
Firstly here is a picture of our land in Samford
The bottom pic was taken on a rainy day so a bit foggy.
We are going for a Queenslander style house with a bit of a modern french country influence.
Of course like most builds the budget has already been blown out of the sky so the furnishings
that I had planned may have to go on the back burner for a while along with the pool.
We are waiting this week for the builders contract and have a couple of quotes to get and hope to start in about 4 weeks, fingers crossed.
For now I can share a few of my favorite things that I have put out now others have been boxed away awaiting their new place in the house.
I got this cute little bird cage from Bubba & La in Paddington and the pot and the plant are from Bunnings. Hope it doesn't die in our icebox we are renting.
I have a passion for these jars and have to stop myself buying them. Next glass purchase will have to be a beautiful bell jar.
The silver and crystal jug on the left in an Italian antique / vintage piece that was given to me by my lovely Mother in Law (yes one of the lucky ladies who actually has a wonderful MIL)
She gave me three of them and they were still full of the original port and alcohol from when they were given to her. They were sitting in the back of he pantry and no one wanted them.. Yes please,
She gave me some other goodies too which I will post later.
Will try and gather some plans of the house to post soon.
Off to sew, but right now would rather be here with a Country Style mag and a hot coffee.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
