The daybed is a favourite - I had one on order for weeks and weeks and it just never turned up - you know - that slow boat that never shows!! I was so pleased when I walked into another furniture store in town and could have it delivered the next day.
I love the crystal door and cupboard knobs. Alexandra and I both have them in our rooms - the builder couldn't quite get his head around that one. I lost count of the number of times he told me things I wanted weren't "the usual". I think when you dream of something for so long it is worth doing it the way you want it.
The bottles I collect from the shop - cherries come in them and they are just perfect for storing all my bits and bobs. I love my stacks of books and cherish them, can you see the Crabtree and Evelyn room spray - just beautiful.
I enjoyed making my sewing machine cover - so much nicer than the plastic one that came with it!
These old boxes I came across at the thrift shop one day - what a great day that was - I store my vintage lace in them.
I hope you enjoyed a visit into my "Studio". Now just to spend more time in there!!

Better get back into some work now - sorting childrens clothing. Change of season. I have a very generous sister - in - law who passes clothes onto Alexandra, so we are very fortunate to get them but always a big job to sort it all out.

What a lovely evening we had at the Lyric Theatre last Wednesday night. It was actually the second time BJ and I had seen this show, the last time was when I was pregnant with Alexandra, so eleven years ago.
I love the ruffles on the top, I would usually baulk at little ruffles like that but the pattern had a great tip on how to turn the neat little hem and it worked really well.
I am looking forward to a visit to my dear friend Barb's tomorrow and hopefully some more creative pursuits this week.

This page jumped out at me and I thought it was just lovely.
Also I noticed another lovely project from Cathy Penton. Just beautiful once again.
It has turned into a beautiful rainy day here. The children picked some lettuce from our garden this morning, it looks beautiful.
We are off to see a show in Brisbane tonight and then tomorrow is a public holiday here for our local show.
It will be nice to spend the day at home pottering (I hope). We have more turf ordered to finish the footpath in front of our house, so that will be Friday afternoons job.
