The boys Tiny Eyes dolls arrived this week. Here is a good peek at them. They will be wrapped up and tucked away for Christmas, although I nearly caved and did consider handing them over today. You can see my doll in this post. That Dee is so very clever!
I have really enjoyed the first week of the school holidays. We have spent a lot of time with my nieces. They are all very close in age and get along so well, I love watching them altogether. When I take them all out, you can see people wondering if they are all mine. I even get asked. They look so similar, so I can see why.
Kimberley from Creative Chaos sent me these goodies. There are some amazingly generous people out there in blog land. Thanks so much Kimberley! I also received Kimberley's Travelling Stationery box. I'm going to go through it this weekend and then send it on it's way. I planning on putting together a Travelling Linen stash box. Anyone keen on swapping their retro and vintage linens?
Loving late afternoon sunlight in the kitchen. Captured this on the cupboard doors - complete with my fingerprint on the lens.
I'm Blue - not me. The paint. Held out an array of colour choices for Bell and Tom and they both picked the same colour. After the mini flood in Bell's "Teen Retreat" we are now going to use that space as a Rumpus Room. So we are having another room change around and painting at the same time. The above photos are of Bell's room. Such a pretty colour and it looks great against the Rimu wood trim. We are painting the boys room this weekend. Can't wait till it is all finished and everyone is back where they should be. The house is a bomb at the moment. Stuff everywhere.
Ah yes, more gardening photos. I have spent as much time as I can this week, weeding, clearing and planting. Finally gave my vege garden some attention. I have stepping pavers to put down and some type of low fencing to keep animals and small children from walking through it.
I drive past this orchard most days and this week I made a point of pulling over and taking a photo. I love how everything is all neatly lined up and with the blossoms out it just looks so stunning. Could you imagine how amazing Wedding photos would look if taken here?
Got anything great planned for the weekend?
Have a fun and relaxing one!
