A wonderful long weekend was has here…Mic and I took the boys out to the Glebe Gardens here in Launceston to get inspired for our impending garden ‘renovation’…there was lot’s of inspiration to be found.
All through the gardens there is something I filed on my phone to take with us back to our Old Lady for inspiration. We sat on our old verandah and
freaked out pondered about where to start on our near acre.
…but before that all happened….there were some jobs needing doing inside. I finally got to hang the curtains in our Laundry ‘room’ in the bathroom. It makes a huge difference.
Re-arranged some details inside…this one is my bedside table.
I finally got to list these new Porcelain and Wood, Vanilla Rings in the Store
Laid the new rugs in the living room and put out one of the vintage platters on our coffee table. We had Family over for dinner and the silver tray gave a beautiful glow while we all watched movies.
The heat we have had here with the fires has taken it’s toll on some of our Hydrangeas, so I thought I would make the most of the 5 plants that didn’t have any sun damage and bring little bunches inside…so sad that my favourite white ones wilted.
Believe it or not, Mic and I even got to have a sleep in…a rare treat with two little boys and a puppy about!
It seems these School holidays I have been in ‘nesting’ mode (no I’m not pregnant) and turned all of our cupboards etc inside out. The linen cupboard was cleaned out….
and had a huge, huge clean out of all of my decorator pieces. This is a small snippet. I sent my Sister away with a full car/boot load and still have two car loads to take down to the local Op Shop!! The basket stayed 😉
We got started on the garden today and had a huge clean out of beds, ready for fertilizing and a good dig out of the new beds.
All in all our Australia Day weekend was lovely…how was your weekend?
