Bring on the bubbles!

We have finally renovated the last room in our house - the bathroom! Three weeks off being finished and I think I have already used the bath at least ten times.
A little tag I couldn't resist picking up at a shop in Mt Tamborine. Went perfectly with the newly painted blue walls.

The cyclamens are all around the florist shops at the moment and I just had to have one.

This is where you are most likely to find me after a long day at work. The timber rack is perfect for sitting a glass of wine on! I am thinking of putting a steel carriage rack for some towels on the wall above the bath on the right...

We picked up this ceiling rose and the cornicing for a steal from a plaster shop at Burleigh Heads. Matches the cornicing throughout the rest of the house perfectly.

Any decorating tips would be appreciated... I am still fussing about in here and I'm sure will be for some time...

What to do with leftover frosting?

I had a stack of leftover cream cheese frosting from a cake I baked a few weeks ago. (Don't worry - it has been freshly kept in the freezer). I found a recipe on the Canadian Food Network website for carrot and pineapple cake and made some muffins.

Now we are going to go outside and enjoy one each in the Winter sun with a cuppa!

Run Rabbit Run

I needed somewhere to place the cups for the coffee machine... Do I buy something..? Do I already have something..? I turned to Peter for some inspiration...

A Peter Rabbit bookshelf that I have treasured and kept since I was a child is perfect. Right under my nose the whole time!

From the ground up

We recently decided to paint over our floorboards (against the opinion of many) and have been delighted with the result. I would have loved to have slicked a coat of white gloss over them but all I could think of was the constant mopping. So we opted for a pale grey called 'Stone Chip'.
