A bit of bling

Went to Pottery Barn the other day. Never a cheap visit! Bought a nice bar tray for my sitting room, and a wooden pizza/paddle board for the kitchen. Am thrilled with both of them.

New bar tray - just the thing
for my sitting room

Loving this for my kitchen.
Saves a LOT of bench wiping!

Am rather excited. Just today I got a message my long awaited bed valance is on its way. Of course, new valance and bed head requires a new quilt set, too. And I'm not happy with the pillows (they really need to be replaced) so I guess that's my next area to focus on.

It's an old real estate adage - but that's the one thing you can't change.

Tonight we had the annual progressive dinner. Smaller than previous years due to illness - but still an awesome night :) We hosted mains this year (so the middle stop of three) and it was awesome. Lots of wine and laughs and amazing food.

The longer I spend in our street the happier I am. Love our street. Love our neighbours. Love our neighbourhood!

Has been a BUSY weekend here. LOTS of gardening, Sean away at a course, and now he is back home the new bedhead installed.

I shan't show it until I find some nice new linen to match (and the matching valance arrives). But I can confirm I am pleased with how it looks :D
