On the weekend, with much excitement, Lisa and I went to a sale of a blogger that we love to follow. It was so fun visiting her beautiful home and buying some of the goodies. There was so many beautiful things but I was fairly good. I got lots of party bags and serviettes, things I always use.
The entire haul!

Glass Christmas Ornaments
I love this bunny. The colour matches my dining room chairs.

The most divine rose darling,

I love that at our new house, the garden has an already established rose garden. It has roses in all colours, they all bloom beautifully and have a gorgeous Tea Rose smell. This huge, soft purple one gave me such joy!

Fun times at our Mountain Retreat

We had such a nice time staying at Nana's and Granddad's while we stressfully hunted for a home.  Those few months at your lovely home acted like a great respite for us and we and the kids loved re-exploring my childhood home.

Thank you so much for having us Mum and Dad. We are very blessed to have you both and to know you are there for us anytime we are in need.

The view from our bed!

A Sparkling Silvery Party

Happy 37th Birthday lovely Lisa!

 Although it was a quickly planned party, you did a beautiful job as always.

You looked gorgeous too.

We had a wonderful night!

Beautiful Days

Just some shots from around the yard. Everything is blooming at the moment.

 I am loving that we have a Mulberry tree. The kids are checking everyday to see when they will be allowed to pick the berry's. We are going to make jam.  
We had white azeala's at the old house, so I was very happy they are here too. Just like me when I was little, Evie loves picking flowers and making bouquets for people.

An Enchanting Afternoon

Lisa, Jason and the boys visited us at our new home on the 1st weekend that we got it.
The 4 of us have been close friends for 20 years now! A must do is to always visit each others homes, especially when its a new one, so we can get a good look at the "before" so we can see what we've done "after" the reno's.It was such a lovely, relaxing day. I was feeling down about it all and missing my old home, this really helped me to start to relax about it. We lay out in the back yard for hours on the picnic rug and chatted while the kids played. Bliss!
