my mum is visiting all the way from perth! and for the first time in my life EVER i am having some 'just mum' time. that means - heaps of long walks, chattering about babies, garden talk, op-shopping AND scavenging.
yes scavenging! i'm proud to say that i'm a country girl and our family could never resist a good road-side pick-up or a trip to the tip. you just wait till you see the lamp my mum and i scavenged from the side of the railway yesterday! k just laughed and wandered off to save himself the embarassment......
(oh and happy birthday to my big brother - 29! he's currently living in madrid, spain and is off to the coast of africa for his birthday. i love you and miss you!)

kee's grandparents gave us their beautiful miniature deco piano
lots of lovely scratches, wear and tear which shows how much the piano has been used and moved around with the family
some of nanny's embroidery on the piano seat
our first family heirloom - how lucky we feel!

been meaning to photograph the kitchen bench we bought to increase the amount of workable surface (our kitchen is small and we make lots of mess when cooking!)
here tis! big drawers. room for scales and heavy kitchen stuff as well as all our baking ingredients and equipment.
do you have a plate or something to hold your jewellery in the bathroom?
i have masses of jewellery and always have something beside my bed and/or bathroom sink to put the jewellery d'jour and then have boxes and containers elsewhere that contain the bulk of it all!
these are my most worn pieces as of late.
what are yours?
