window shopping...

Recyclyed locker from wesben on etsy
Amazing sideboard from benjaminmangholz on etsy

I found these clever things on etsy while I was procrastinating   planning our new living room in the Panna house...

I did have a plan to acquire a few new bits and pieces to make our new home in Pannawonica more comfortable. My list grew very long, very quickly. The reality of the situation is that although I would love a new couch/rugs/bed/bookshelf etc; we really can't afford to just go out and buy these things on a whim.  We are going to be taking most of our existing furniture with us, all of which has been picked up from op-shops, friends and hard rubbish.

NOW please don't get me wrong... I love my stuff. I love that not having a lot of cash forces you to find creative solutions to furnishing and decorating.  Finding abandoned treasures at the tip makes my heart race and brings me immeasurable joy!! I also love houses that are real. Lived in and mismatched. I don't love houses that look like display homes... Boring!

BUT if money were no object, then there are a few things that I would be happy to bring home...

Random stuff...

*I have decide that I am the beehive type. I found this tutorial and have been practising all weekend. I suggest you give it a try... I love it so much, I may even arrange for some pictures of me rockin' the new do soon.
*I was watching something that made me cry on the telly, and Zavian came up and held my face and said, 'don't worry mummy, I make you feel better' and gave me a kiss. Melt. heart explosion.
* I have my niece camping in the back yard with her friends for her end of school leavers...

So random. I shouldn't even be trying to blog right now...

Off to bed.
