Loungeroom Photo Update

Finally, an update on the progress of our loungeroom!

before we moved in, 2008
in progress, mid 2010
and now (April 2011)

Hubby worked so hard with the brush, and I tried to do as much as I could. And now I think we are both happy with how its turned out so far.

We will be looking at bringing in a footstool/pouffe too soon (possibly for my swollen ankles in the coming weeks), but I won't hold my breath! How I love these moroccan ones:

And some last finishing touches I would love to add are; artwork/mirror/photos on the walls, new cushions, side table makeover. All in good time (and money) I suppose :)

Loving Saturday Club Mission 4

Last Saturday, I tried to fit in the 'Loving Saturday Club' mission for the week that Sarah has running from
I don't think I fulfilled all the requirements for this one, except the part about shopping for flowers.

Unfortunately I was in a such a hurry - it was an hour before guests would start arriving for the baby shower.

I decided to buy a small bunch for my baby shower, which already came packaged for display, which was really lovely.   So I could just plonk them on the table, as is!

Next time I hope to be able to foof a little with more flowers and have a few scattered around the house - they just give a room such a lovely feeling...

ps. apologies for the droopy flowers, it was a little while till I had the camera handy for a quick photo

Baby Shower

My baby shower was on last Saturday afternoon, and it was all systems go... so much so that I am now kicking myself for not having time to bring out my camera! (needless to say, I suck!)
I would have loved a couple of memories from the day.

Anyhoo, I managed to get a photo taken of myself and my daughter

and a little corner of the room before it all got packed away...

It really was a delightful afternoon, with lovely company and delicious cake! All the gifts were so gorgeous (and much needed, I might add!). And here I thought I would show you one particular gift that received many oohh's and aaahh's from the guests. So, so tiny!!

So its now 8 weeks to go until 'D' day. I wish I could say I was looking forward to it :P.
There's always that saying 'no pain... no gain'!

Loving Saturday Club Mission

The mission... to indulge and relax!

with my camera along for the ride...

I'm learning about shutter speed this week - by following Darcy's '31 days to a better photo' series, I'm finally exploring the manual side of my dslr (I've been lazy and have always used auto)

We lounged in the sun, on a jetty, with boats lounging in mud (or silt, to be absolutely spot on)

with a very special person

... and gray ruffles to boot! (or should I say shoe :) )

what a lovely morning we had!!

Expecting change

Thanks to Sarah's blogging tips at abeachcottage - its time I fixed up my blog.

And it'll all start with organising my camera, take more photos & start writing!!

Oh, and I'll also be participating in the 'love' Saturday Club Mission Number Three
that Sarah has begun, so if I'm on the ball I'll be somewhere in ruffles delighting in something tasty and calorie laden (with my camera of course!!)
