Nature At Its Finest

With all the unsettled weather we have been having
in Brisbane, it has left everything a bit soggy and 
is slowing down our pool build progress.

Last week Mother Nature put on quite a display in our
little Valley.

Unfortunately my iPhone didn't capture the colours
very well .  It was like a triple rainbow.
So spectacular

I'm wondering if there are 2 very large pots
of gold hidden in our Valley???

Have a great Monday

Yes, I am a self confessed TV Soap addict.
Also a big fan of the Hamptons Style.
So what could be better than a soap
set in the Hamptons!

Just a simple beach House for one please.

Yes I can see myself sitting there.

Love the Verandah

Happy Tuesday

Entrance Hall

My next project in the house is going to be the 
entrance hall.
I spent a lot of time and money doing up the living 
room, which is still waiting to be finished!

But I stumbled upon a sweet archway mirror in Adair's down
in Fortitude Vally last week and put it on lay by.....

I had an idea of a full length one at the end of the hall
 as you walk in but as yet have not found anything close
to budget .

I also am saving up for a new hall table.

It is the Hugo console from Villa Maison
that goes with my dining table.
They were out of stock last year so hoping
it is available soon.

The mirror is a bit like this one.

will hang the archway mirror above and
looking for another lamp similar to our bedside lamp 
but with a square shaped shade.

The back of the front door needs painting
as well as the skirting.  Will get there one day.

Here are a few of the inspirational images
I found via pintrest.

Love the seat in the hall but not sure ours is quite wide enough

May do a hat and coat rail on the other wall.

Would be great to have everything finished but
that would be no fun...

Have a great weekend.

A Misty Morning in the Valley

I snapped this early one morning a week or 
two ago in between the rain.

Everything is lovely and green now but
I am glad to see the end of the rain.
Hoping that all the people in Qld and NSW
who have been flooded again are getting
some relief.

We finally managed to get the blocks for
the pool retaining wall delivered and 
construction starts this week so then
the pool can begin.

Kids had their first full day back at school last week
It is a busy time, for one year I have all three at different
schools, lucky they are all very close.

A snap of my Banana and Raspberry bread.
Yum!  Great for lunch boxes and well anytime.

A few pics of our Truffle living up to her 
Ragdoll name....

Lucky because she is getting loved to bits.
When the kids are home she is always being
cuddled.  Secretly I think she is happy when they
are at school for a little peace and quiet :-)
