Monday at our house...

What a busy weekend we had a baby shower, a farewell and a birthday party here there and everywhere! I managed to spend a little bit of time on the farm, whilst taking Bella (our dog) for a walk I grabbed this eucalyptus branch, wall actually I outsourced the Mr to fetch it for me. I think it looks so simple but beautiful sitting in a large vase, I put a few drops of eucalyptus oil in the water to enhance the smell (I used good old "Double D").

A few other bits and pieces:
  • The dog bed that I made in beautiful gold satin, piped in chocolate brown velvet (my first attempt at piping a cushion was not a complete failure).
  • Black Ginger jar style lamp Thrifted from the Salvation Army for $10. I also found a duck egg blue one (at the very same store a few weeks later) that I have gifted to mum.
  • The mirror is also new - A recent present from mum - Call me mirror obsessed but I think in a small space you need to have lots of mirrors to reflect the light.  

Green is beautiful & I had the guts I would use Astro Turf as carpet too...

  1. Is it actually astroturf, or is it the green rug from Ikea that looks just like grass, yet is made from whatever they make rugs from (wool?)



THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment. :)
