I haven't done much op-shopping lately, so I was happy to find this table for the veranda. I thought it would make a nice change from the old trunk we have been using. I left another older style one behind at the oppy on the last visit and it was gone when I went back. So after a good scrub down,undercoat and topcoat, I think it will satisfy the "picket fence girl" lurking beneath the surface.
Unfortunately it probably won't look like this for long.(all previously from the opshop)
But will be hidden under the weekly junkmail and probably a few feet as well.
I brought home this little alabaster trinket box also.
I love this kid's room in the August issue of Real Living magazine. Nice bright colours,wall-sized map and curved Kartell bookshelf. Also has some pics of "The Block" houses.
Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post. For those of you who don't have flowers in the garden at the moment, you can share some of mine. Taken this morning while soaking up some sun instead of doing chores.
Clerodendrum ugandense-blue butterfly bush. I have wanted one of these for a long time.Another abutilon.
