Renovating Again


Well just when you think your renovating is done your son by a renovator's delight.
He has no experience and never showed any interest in renovating before. He needs your help what do you do. Help!!!

So we've been at it for 6 months got away to go but we're getting there.

Where Have I Been Still Don't Know Where I'm Going

I haven't posted for so long but the last few years have been hard that's all I can say.
Finally I hope I can see a light at the end of a long dark tunnel. Nothing changed around here for quite a while I've been too busy trying to get to the light. So pardon my out of focus photo.

Got some of these for sale white aggies.

Divided and already to plant

Can't believe it's almost Xmas the days are whizzing by. I thought I'd post some photo's of our CHRISTMAS while the turkey's cooking.

I love putting up my decorations. I'm afraid I like a bit of Xmas kitch.

My kitchen doesn't escape. The santa in the middle was a suprise early gift from my husband.

My beautiful black wire xmas tree made by my clever husband.
Here's the rag and bauble wreath I made as a magazine project.

A plate I painted a while back just love Santa.

Dining Alfresco.

Now for the drama A BLOCKED SEWER. Wouldn't be Xmas with out the drama !!!!!!!!!....

This is how my bedroom has evolved in recent times

The bedhead was the first thing my hubby and I made together many years ago. My more modern take on a brass bed.

The chair was my Grandma's I had it repaired and covered in this yellow Warwick fabric in my blue and yellow phase. I made the curtains and pelmet.

Then I bought the mirror. The wall colour bothered me as I always felt it was too pink.

Then I made new curtains and pelmets. Still too pink.
I wanted a softer pretty look for the bed skirt.

So I painted the walls .Got rid of the pelmet and all the clutter on the walls.

Made a soft voile bedskirt. Now I'm going to have a go at making a padded bedhead and recover the most gorgeous little wing back chair ( a road side find). I have know idea what fabric to cover the chair in any suggestions ??? But I do have some velvet for the bedhead.

Time to Post

I've had to time to contemplate while looking out my window.

I've slowed a little wondering where to next.
I've read all your great blogs and couldn't find the words for mine.
So I just kept on waiting and watching.
Well now I've gotta get a move on.
I start a new job next week.
I'm quietly excited that's all I can be after my experiences at the last job.

I've been able to enjoy my roses.
They are so gorgeous.

How did I get here I don't really know.
I've lost my way.
My job finished in May . No great loss I was well and truely over it.
I took a new job in June only to find I was subjected to subtitle harrassment and bullying so I quit.
Where to now I really don't know.
