Empty Canvas

Now that the walls are almost painted we need some
things to decorate.

Our old house didn't have alot of wall space so we
don't have a lot of art or pictures.
It is nice to have a new "empty canvas" to build on.
Again, just need that winning lotto ticket.

I am not one for florally pictures but I love 
Jaqueline Coats and would love this one for the stair well.

A couple of her other works.  I really love these up close ones
of the single flower

These are also on my wish list 

Off to do some work incase the lotto doesn't pay off.

Happy Tuesday.

I have used a lot of blue as my accent colour in the house and decided
to paint the buffet and hutch blue too.

It's quite blue but I really like it and I think is shows off the white display
inside well, just need a couple more french jugs.
I painted it blue then gave it a light distressed finish and
followed it up with a bit of a white wash.

My French grey tree from Bed Bath and Table.
Wall behind still waiting to be painted.
And also the drawers to be finished.

The bird sitting on the bottle is a swallow.
We have a flock of them that fly around our house all day.
I call them the dolphins of the sky, they are so playful and cheeky.

The cups and saucers are antique Royal Winton, they belonged 
to my Great Grandmotherand have been sitting in a box for the
 past 2 1/2 years waiting for a special spot.

The jug on the left and the little bottle are from one of my 
favourite shops in Ascot, Lyle & Bank

Set for a weekend of more painting.
Looking forward to getting rid of all the drop sheets and dust
(and builders, sorry boys)

Lounge from Freedom arriving on Wednesday
Need to start putting some things on the walls and
will start to feel more lived in.

Have a great weekend

Beautiful Photos

Take a look at these beautiful photos of the clever Photograper
Tanya from Aynat Designs.

Yes that is one of my bird cages she has used as a prop with her 
little girl Charlotte.

Pop over here to see her lovely work.

Happy Thursday

I'm Back

We are have been in the house for  a few weeks but have been up 
to our ears in painting builders and dust, rain and mud.
Still waiting for furniture to arrive and the builders to finish off a few last things.

My website will be back up and running by today.
Good old Telstra lost my email address in the transfere and have
been unable to put the website back up because all the payments 
are linked to the email.   All sorted now.

A little sneek peek at what I wake up to.

An early morning sunrise

Misty Autumn Morning

Will post more pics once we are a little more settled.
