A Change...............

Thanks for all the wonderful comments last post....
I did paint the chest of drawers white, and they look so fresh now. I moved them to the front door, and now we have some where to put things as we come inside. I couldn't help putting a lamp on there, and the frame that Robbie made me for my birthday.

Now as you walk up the front stairs you are greeted by the chairs, instead of a mess.

The side stayed the same, I added a tablecloth on my table and I still want to paint the benches. I am thinking of painting the legs and bottom of the table white and giving the top a good sand down and leave that the timber.

We think I have lawn grubs in my grass aggggggghhhhhhh. My sister in law had the same problem. My grass is nearly all dead now and still dying. I am starting to think CHEMICALS haha, I don't know if I could spray the yard though I am not one for chemicals I would rather let nature take it's course.

This week my last three babies all started at new schools...Robbie is in grade 8 and Cassie in grade 10. They have started at a state school in Toowoomba.
William is going to the local school down here at Flagstone with only 28 students. He is in grade 3 this year....

Tomorrow is Australia day and we are having a bar-b- que with family, so the day will be spent lazing around the pool. In fact we are starting tonight as the kids and I are going to have pizza and a movie..Sounds a good way to kick of Australia Day....
What will you be doing?


  1. So Glad you painted the chest white it looks Fabulous & so pretty on your Verandah...
    Enjoy your night.

  2. The chest of drawers looks great and the entry very welcoming.

  3. The verandah looks really cosy now, well done!

    We are having spag bol here for dinner (I think that's nearly as Aussie as a lamb chop now!) then tomorrow I plan on doing as little as possible! I've had 2 weekends away in Adelaide and have worked all through Christmas and New Year so do nothing will be bliss!

    Cheers - Joolz

  4. Happy Australia Day from your blogville friends in the USA.

  5. Mandy,
    Your entryway looks absolutely inviting! If I didn't live so far away, I'd come visit and sit on your porch! :-) You did a stunning job painting and arranging everything.

    Happy Australia Day!

  6. I hope the kids love their schools.
