Kirstie and I - decorating together

Monday, April 28, 2008






Well we have just had a long weekend here and on Saturday we decided to head to Brisbane for a bit of shopping... We were actually looking for a new desk for Kirstie but instead we came back with a white locker to store all her books in as she just loves to read... her most favourite pastime....Kirstie and I love to rearrange together and her room now is nearly how she wants it... Just needs a nice light fitting and a little cuddly rug for her floor for winter... Her style is a little more modern then mine but I love the fact that she already has a passion for her surroundings. This room is very dark so I apologise that the photos are not that clear.... I also apologise for the photo of me (LOL!!!!)...... My little Andrew's room is on the list now for a make over so will show you photos of that when we start....

  4. Hi Cathy! Yes, Hi! There you are, how nice to meet a face :) You both looks so pretty and also very happy. No wonder with all the beautiful nature and things your surround yourself with. I love the ocean myself and I go there as often that I can.

    The new cabinet is sooo beautiful!! It is very much alike the one that I almost bought earlier on. But It wasn`t big enough and I was a bit worried about the mirrors, how to transport them all the way to Norway.
    I love your book holder in your previous post, I fell so in love with it that I am now looking for one too!
    I always get Inspirated by reading and looking at your pictures.

    I recently got a visit from Angela, I was so happy to hear from her again! She is such a darling :)
    She asked were you could send our exchanges. We will stay a couple of months here before our removal. So I think it will be safe to send it to the adress I now have. Do you still have it, or do I have to send it again?

    I wish you a very good creative week, take care and see you really soon! Hugs Aina
