what an inspiring space don't ya think? it has a little to much masculine shape for me but i love the contrast between old and new.



we are in the process of doing up the porch and utility. So far the floor is down and now we have to patch up the walls and paint them. It's already an incentive to add some colour and a place to sit. These are my favourite flowers at the moment...

have a laugh on me....

There is a reason we got rid of those eighties floral's and i can confirm that for you now.

There was a glimmer of hope that i could pull this outfit off but it was a definite NO....But why not share the laugh with you....Hey i can take it!!!

spring activities

I have been a very focused lady of late, and there is nothing I like better than having a project on the go. Our very neglected garden has been having a make over and I am pretty excited about it. So far I have planted up a shady patch under a tree with the appropriate plants and Steve and I are both doing some serious digging while we create two levels on the lawn. The lower part will have a deck on It and the higher part will be mainly for the kid's stuff. We will create some screen on the raised beds above the deck. This leads to the exciting part of choosing plants which occupies a great deal of my thinking time......Here is how it looks so far.
All this soil has to go somewhere.........
