Etsy shop of the week.

This would have to be one of my all time favourite Etsy shop. The artist creates the most whimsical original oil paintings that I just cant help but smile when I look at one. Now when I get that Paypal account organised, Mr B is going to commission one for me for Christmas...he doesn't know he is going to do this but he will!

On my Christmas list is a Nest painting just like one in the picture. The 3 eggs will of course represent my 3 cute is this painting.

Next on my Christmas list is a swing 'leap' painting that depicts an age that all my boys have been. As long as the little boy in the picture has strawberry blond hair thats fine as my boys look the same anyway LOL
There is something about this particular painting that lifts my spirits and reminds me of a happy childhood...carefree, full of hope and joy.

How do you have a cow in your house? Easy...look at the episode of Grand Designs.

Grand Designs

I know you cant see the cow due to her head being in the way... but believe me its a cow. when I saw the episode with the cow picture, my heart did a back flip. Anything is possible in decorating!


I just love this bee painting...

Look at the colours when grouped with other pictures. I love this painting so much but maybe my one will be of a little boy holding balloons.

Another Leap painting. How could you ever not smile every time you walk past a painting like this in your home.

Three little children. Should I do a picture like this with my three boys?
Hope you enjoyed looking at one of my favourite Etsy sellers...more to come.

100th post! back to blogging

I cannot believe it has been 5 months! Anyhoo, I will try not to dwell on the fact I have neglected my beloved blog and all my bloggie friends so here is the 100th post.

First of all, what did I miss? To be blunt, I almost had a heart attack when I visited A-M's blog 4 weeks ago. Not only had she moved out but her home was in Home Beautiful and most importantly, I did not have a copy of that issue! What has happened whilst I've been away from blogging? One of my lovely forum friends kindly came to my rescue and sent me her beloved copy of Home Beautiful all the way from Western Australia...(lets not mention the fact that the postage was more than what the magazine was worth) So my biggest thankyou to Kexkez who sent me the issue that A-M's house was in.

On the decorating side...nothing at all. The beach house project has diverted all of all attention and effort. Thats ok, its almost come to an end and has just gone onto the market to be rented out. Eventually, I would love the beach house to be a holiday rental, where I can pretty it up with white furniture but that would be a few years down the track. I am starting to refocus my attention back to our own home and the picture above is my son's room and his birthday present. We have set up a desk for him with everything he need, lamp, little buckets to keep stuff in (they now hang from the wall) and a cool red chair. All came from Ikea. Not a real big fan of this store but when you get everything for under $ become a fan!

This green Buddha sits on our kitchen bench next to our stove. It belongs to Mr B, every night before he cooks, he lights the little candle. It looks like it just belongs...very calming and of course I love the colour, it matches our doors. The Buddha is from the Jamie Durie series at Target. Cost $10 and has a really nice quality about it.

At the moment, I have been studying Etsy for quite a while, looking at original art works and cushions that suit my home. I am itching to buy haven't even got a paypal account. I must be the last blogger who has never bought a thing on line. Thats going to change...after all, I have a home to finish decorating!
