Home on a Saturday

It's a stunning day here in Sydney. Sasha and Phil are currently baking a triple sized chocolate cake that I will decorate for Sasha's party later today. Well the cake is now in the oven and Phil in the kids are lying in the garden, reading in the sunshine. Sasha's having 10 friends over for dinner, a spa and a movie. I am looking forward to seeing her and her friends together. These girls are really growing up.



It's been a while since I've posted some photos of our house. A few changes in furniture as you can imagine as things come and go. I have finally sold the driftwood effect gramophone cabinet (actually to the first person who enquired about it weeks and weeks ago) and I'm sure Phil will be happy to see it out of our bedroom. I really thought this piece would sell quicker and I had a lot of interest in it but at 60cm deep it was too large for most people. I'll keep that in mind when I'm buying furniture in the future.





I bought some ranunculus this morning at the markets. I have some growing in the garden but they haven't bloomed yet. I am looking forward to spring and getting out to enjoy our garden more, although it already feels like Spring doesn't it.





Is it possible to have too much curvey scrolly furniture in one house? 



a new to me coffee table that I adore - possible will be painted as it's quite orange but wow it's a lovely shape. I found it on eBay and paid more than I usually do for a second hand piece but it was worth it and a fraction of the price you would pay new.




May the sun be shining where you are also.
Have a lovely weekend. Fiona xx
