I'm beginning to wonder if our tiny hallway is starting to look a bit cluttered...
Rogues Gallery #1
#2 I bought these brass horses for a friend, but when I got them home I found I couldn't part with them.
#3 that's little Tommy next to Mary (Lucy Violet's husband)
Annabel's vintage curtains which I've just had made into Roman blinds. Very pleased with how they turned out.
I've used this Frankie S quote on my blog before, but it's true, "orange (really) is the happiest colour"
Here's more proof.
This baby has come to live at our house. It's a beautiful modern dream catcher, handmade by Pippa, who even named it after moi! If that's not special I don't know what is! You can read all about it here. Just gotta paint our bedroom walls, and then it's sweet dreams every night.
frock still up for grabs btw
I like blue too. This op-shopped doily has made me want to dye all my doilies, then I might actually use them...
Look, babies! I'm sure they weren't there a couple of days ago, I'm so excited about this! Does anyone know if you can grow these (Rosary Bead Plant) from cuttings?
Finally hanging our Cornish painting, (this thing's huge! bigger than me! bigger than Texas, Dana) has made me really happy. I call this Madonna and Child, I don't know it's real name. It was painted by West Australian artist Campbell Frederick Cornish in 1972. My Mum, who used to work at the Art Gallery of WA, won it from him in a bet. She gave it to us a few years ago, but it hasn't had a proper place till now. Would you find it disconcerting to have this on the wall while you're eating?
The Art Gallery of WA has several Cornish pieces, and we
think know we are very lucky to have one too.
The cactus in the black pot is a newby, bought from an old Italian man at a garage sale. Do you know what it's called?
My Mum was going to ditch the little Buddha, so I brought him home to live with us.
Lime green bottle brush on our verge, the only one, the rest are red. Very nice of the local council to co-ordinate their planting so perfectly with our house!
Freshly planted garden bed, flamingos enjoying a frolic under the sprinklers.
(Frangipani just about to burst into leaf, excited about that too. We've just planted three. I wish they were bigger, but gosh those things are expensive!)
Here's the t.t
