Dining area overhaul!!
What a crazy day! I sat down to my machine, ready for a day full of sewing and making, when all of a sudden the power went out. I had forgotten all about the letter I received a few weeks ago telling me that the power would be off for scheduled maintenance in my area. Drats! I had no idea what to do with myself. The small person was at daycare and I was alone in the house all day with no power. I might have headed in to town for an op-shopping mission, except I did that yesterday... I started potting around the place, picking things up, re-arranging, as I do, the next thing you know a full scale dining area overhaul was in progress!! And I am pretty happy with it. For now anyway ;) I styled the table with a few odd jars and beakers with succulence cuttings. FYI - The seagrass mat is actually a door mat from bunnings! You can pick them up for $2 a pop and I think that it makes a dandy table centerpiece.
My shiny new kitchenaid blender arrived so I found a new home for it on my kitchen bench. This means the smoothies are back on!! I am so glad I made the decision to spend a few extra bucks and get the pink blender of my dreams as I will be forever proud to have this on display... As soon as the power came back on I made myself a smoothie.
Now its time for a shower, and maybe a coffee, I have some late night sewing to catch up on...
