Happy Australia Day long weekend everyone! We've had a house focused weekend which has been great and very productive.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and given how much has happened this weekend I think it's the best way to tell you all about it...
|The weekend started off brilliantly when my much awaited copy of How to Decorate arrived in the mail- I think it may have set the scene...|
|Saturday started at this junk yard in Reservoir (I can't even tell you what it's called, because I don't think it actually has a name!) where we were on the hunt for some timber to make a desk (more about that later).|
|We came away with this beautiful timber (left) and 2 vintage ladders which I had been looking for, for ages! All for a grand total of $75- bargain!|
|While Paul started work on the desk I planted some rocket and baby cos (in a pot on the deck so the possum/s hopefully won't eat it!) in this half wine barrel we picked up from Bunnings...|
|...and some more tomato plants in the herb garden where there was some space.|
|On Sunday we went for Bunch with friends at our favourite place Cheshire. If you're in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne and are looking for great brekky food, I highly recommend it! The others all went for a motorbike ride in the afternoon so I had the opportunity to kick back with a peppermint tea, and my new book! I was kept company by our babies; Maddie (left) and Millie (right).|
|Monday morning I made us brekky in bed. We lazed around for a bit before mustering up the courage to face Ikea where we going to pick up the trestle legs for the desk.|
|After Ikea, we took a well earned break on the rooftop deck at Naked for Satan in Brunswick St...|
|...and admired the view on this amazing Melbourne day.|
|On the way home, I picked up these beautiful flowers and now it's time to start getting ready to face the week- urgh!|
