Our old bathroom has been getting me down lately as it never looked clean no matter how much I scrubbed.  So a quick coat of paint and a recycled sink costing $30 later!
The lovely vintage towel from my dear friend Margaret and one of Tanyas soaps (suburban jubilee) add a touch of luxury.  Keeping all the usual clutter off the sink is another story.

Hope you're all having a nice weekend.

This little room has been like this for 9 years!  It sits behind our kitchen and the original plan was to extend the bathroom into this space.  Lately however, our kitchen seems so short on storage we have decided to re create the pantry. 
The condition of our whole house was like this 9 years ago.  I don't think we could ever undertake such a renovation again. The pantry won't take long and I'm hoping lots of shelves to store things will be the result.  Il keep you posted.

Birthday flowers from my work

The company I work for sends flowers on our birthday.  Today it's my turn and I want to share them with you.
When I started blogging I decided not to share personal stuff but I sometimes feel I miss sharing the best bits.
My little grand daughters birthday was yesterday, so we had a lovely evening with family yesterday.  I'm off to work now!! Have a good weekend.

Rescued rose

This lovely rose was destined for the rubbish heap and was but a twig when I popped it in beside our driveway.
It is such a pretty rose and probably from the 70s.
