Ripping out an old fire

On July 25th, 2012 by .

Just in case you were wondering where I had disappeared to, I am in the middle of moving home – hence no posts.  In fact, move day is today and I am about to have my life packed into boxes.  Weeks of me trying to find a certain item, only to find it in the garage 6 months later, no phone, no Internet (we all know what BT are like) BUT, on the positive, we have a huge renovation project that is going to be so much fun!  Below are a few pics of the fireplace that we ripped out of the living room.  We had peach walls, carpet and curtains!!  I am shooting the room as a makeover, so I’ll show you bits as I go along.

Name that flower

On July 20th, 2012 by .

I am excited to say that we have just completed on our new house, and one of it’s best features is the beautiful garden. My knowledge of flowers is OK but there are definitely some in the garden that I don’t know the name of. I feel I am going to have to call on the experts, Rona from Flowerona is one! Here are just a few that I took in the pouring rain. Please come out sun!!!20120720-145709.jpg20120720-145655.jpg
