Here is a brief update on the house progress. The frame is up and the roof and guttering installed on the top floor. This photo was taken by the builder this week. I am really happy with how my American shingle roof is looking. After seeing this view though, I am disappointed we didn’t…(Read More)

New Fabrics For Spring


I am loving some of the fabric ranges that are in the showrooms at the moment. Lots of pretty patterns and colours. I am visualising them as roman blinds, cushions, ottomans. I get very excited, fabrics are one of my weaknesses! I thought I would share some of my favourites. Warwick: The new Cornucopia range…(Read More)

In her usual colourful way, Maria Barros has used pink and orange to brighten a…(Read More)

With the blue skies, the scenery is making the routine daily drives actually enjoyable. I know it won’t last, so I’m…(Read More)
