Pottering around the house

This past weekend was a very civilised long weekend for us good folk here in Australia. The extra day of rest gave me such much valued time and I just pottered around the house moving things and making the house look pretty.

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to have a an early viewing of Judy's designer garage sale. (One could hardly call it a garage sale) I picked up some fab bargains including a pair of these etched hurricanes that Judy used at her recent wedding.

I thought the vessel would work nicely as a vase as well as hurricane. I'm pretty sure I prefer the arrangement in lounge room. How about you, which do you prefer? Lounge or family room?

  3. Gorgeous Sharnel - it looks beautiful on your coffee table, full of hydrangeas. Although I don't think there's anywhere in that beautiful home of yours where it would look out of place! K xx

  9. You have such a lovely home! I think the flowers look best in the first photo, the blue fabric really makes the bluey-purple of the flowers pop!
