About the house.....

Happy Tuesday all....
I wanted to share with you what I have been up to around the house lately. I picked this sign  up from a great shop in Gatton last time I was in there. Such a good saying  I think. As you can see I still haven't got around to painting the rest of the house. I was planning on doing it my self but I just don't have the time so I think I will have to call on Painter handy man Neville to come and do it for me at least it will get done then.

Last post I mentioned that we stopped at Ikea on the way home, I got a few little bits and bobs, my favorite being this new candle chandelier, loving it, it holds 10 candles.

As I don't have a light above the dinning room table I thought this would ground the table.

I have also brought in a stool to use along the window instead of chairs, manly because I don't have enough dinning room chairs. Also with the numbers I have been feeding you can fit more around a table with a long stool.

Looking at the above photos I have decided YES I have to get Neville down to paint. Funny how you stop seeing things that need to get done after a while isn't it.

I have made a start on getting the photos all back up in the hallway as well. I am thinking of painting all the frames black so they all look uniform.....not sure about this.I still have a lot of photos to put up on the other wall yet. I get them all out and then can't get it right so they all go back in the cup board..sighhhh  decision's decisions.

Below is my most favourite spot in the house, I love this table. At first I thought it was to big for the room but it has grown on me and we use it all the time, great for blogging on or when there is to many at the main table we use this one.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I have been up too. Not as much as I would like but I'm hoping that will change soon....



  1. Love the chandelier..and the hallway looks lovely,it does not matter if the frames don't all match as long as you like them..You have done well,you have done so much yourself maybe getting Neville in would make it less stressful for you..

  2. I have read your blog and saw your beautiful family pics your blog is very nice and much informative I like it
