My new bff

How did that get in there? Lots of randoms by our budding photographer.


My Dad loves reading the latest trash mags. Actually I didn't think it was his thing.







Potato and leek soup - soule food!


Apparently it's not too cold for a quick dip.


I think they must be just using me for the bathing facilities. I'm heartbroken.

Oh and just incase you think I live the perfect life.

Second week of school holidays. Locked in house for a week with Dad who needs constant care. Husband in Africa. Good times!

Hope you've all had a great weekend!


  1. That liquid nails stuff looks awesome. I love your seat cushions you made too cute! Your potato leak soup looks delish! I hope you have a wonderful 4th!

  2. What amazing ideas I love them all, those dots are so cute!!!

  3. Awww love the red polka dot cushions!! It's my fave, I wore red/white polka dot heels in my wedding and do my business design in it:-)

    Cute photos, looks like fun, hang in there!

  4. Sharnel, so pleased to see a photo of your dad, it must be lovely for you and the children to spend some time with him.

    The stools for Olivia's party look fabulous, you are very creative!

    We are just starting school holidays today, enjoy your week.

  10. Looks like a great week! That soup look yummy!


  11. Hang in there, Sharnel - you're doing an amazing job under difficult circumstances. You also manage to do it whilst making toadstools?? Give the girl a medal:) Meredy xo.

  12. OMG, are those the toadstools for the party? SQUEEL!!!! Can't wait for the party pics!
    I can't believe you had time to make them while the children are on school holidays, husband away and looking after your dad, I officially hand over my Superwoman cape to you! I've struggled getting anything done with my kiddies at home, and the party is creeping closer and closer, only 3 weeks to go for me :-( Yikes!

  13. Just found your blog and WOW love it!! I have to ask we are in the process of building and I want marble counter tops so bad but have been told they are not the best for a kitchen. From what I see your kitchen is pretty much designed exactly like what I have had designed with the subway tiles etc. I would love to know if you like your countertops ? Thanks SO much!

  14. Thanks for sharing your week with us :) You have been a busy lady Sharnel! And with having to look after your unwell Dad, you must feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders! But hang in're amazing!!!'ve now made me crave hot soup :)
    And....I had to giggle about the Charlotte girlfriend & I were discussing that very scene today! She said her hideaway to cry was the laundry LOL....mine is the shower :)
    I passed on a blogging award to this here for details:
    Have a great weekend xo.

  15. Looking forward to seeing photos of the big day! Loved your soup and loved seeing the 'Furi' knives - one of my husband's best friends actually designed these knives. I use many of them in my kitchen too. Great to see this fab Qld brand out and about!
