A Few House Pics

We are still trying to get the house in order and
with the kids home on school holidays it is hard to keep
things clean and organized long enough to photograph anything.

Don't look too closely the front hand rails still need top coating

My mushroom and berry wreath for Christmas looks lovely
on the white door.

We planted out the section in front of the house
with a murraya hedge to cover the fence, lirriope, lavender,
agapanthas and a magnolia tree, which hopefully won't take 
too long to get some height.
The front path is going to be tiled in the same
honed sandstone that we are using around the pool.

Coach lights

As you can imagine I was very excited to see this arrive
just before Christmas

My beautiful Villa Maison table and chairs
On the wish list for this year is a Hampton's
Library to put across the back wall.
Just deciding on white or burnt oak to match the table top??

And as you can see Miss Truffle has settled in to the 
Ruby & Belle house beautifully

And finally a happy Birthday to my gorgeous girl
Ruby was 10 yesterday 

Happy Wednesday


  1. The house looks lovely Mekaela, I love your lights and the garden looks fabulous, it will be great when it gets more established. Happy birthday to Ruby, I hope she had a lovely day. xx

  2. Looks lovely Mekaela, worth all the hard work painting and the fun part - decorating. ;-)

  3. It is looking gorgeous Mekaela. And Miss Truffle literally looks like the cat that has swallowed the cream! Happy Birthday to Ruby, double figures wow!

  4. It all looks so gorgeous! I love all of the colours. Letitia xx

  5. Hi Mekaela
