Things that I'm thinking about today

The things I'm thinking about today are:

1. That this room is soooooo cute, and I would love to sit here with each one of my bloggy friends and have tea and biscuits together and just chat. Isn't it adorable and fun?

2. That I've really got to stop making myself instant coffee in the morning (oh yeah, that self inflicted coffee ban from a few weeks ago lasted all of about 2days) and so I should just get off my butt and crank up the espresso machine we have sitting in the corner of the kitchen. My cup of instant coffee tasted more like dish water/grass clippings today than it has before and I poured it down the drain it was that bad!

3. I am also excited that I got all the paint yesterday for painting the steps, garage and gates! Yay! See that Smoke Haze colour? It's a pretty close match to that one, which looks like the riversand colour I was after.

4. That I'm sooooo excited about a new print that I am having so much fun designing at the moment. Can't wait to show you when it's finished!

5. That this is an awesome verse Lamentations 3:22.

6. And lastly that I have the funniest little bubba that looks so cute when trying on my sunnies.

What are you thinking about today? I'd love to know!

Have a great Friday everyone,


  1. That room is gorgeous. I like rooms that have lots to look at in them - lots of character. I'd enjoy sitting there but I'd have to swap the coffee for a good cuppa.
    Hmm, what am I thinking about...a really busy time at work. A massive exhibition opening on the weekend that will have me run ragged!
    Oh well, I am hoping in a month or so I can get myself a few days off work to relax!
    Have a lovely weekend!
    ps Will does look super cute in the glasses. Maybe he's protecting his eyes from the glare of the paparazzi camera flashes?

  2. LOVE that room Janette and I'd love nothing more than to sit there with you and enjoy a cuppa while our two little bubbas ran riot :) There's so many details about that room I love. Will looks so adorable in your sunnies - Grace is obsessed with glasses at the moment too and tries to put them on (usually upside-down). That paint colour you've chosen looks great and I can't wait to see it on your house. Looking forward to seeing this new print of yours too! Enjoy your Friday xx

  3. Hi! Just found your blog and love it! I'm new to the blogging world so am learning everyday. Love your thoughts on coffee- wish I could use the machine! I love coffee, am pregnant and am reduced to the instant decaf kind...really don't know why I bother! And your baby is gorgeous in those sunnies!!! Emma.

  4. Will is a cutie! He looks adorable in your sunnies! Are you painting this weekend? It will make such a difference when you are done. Love the room, could happily catch up with a cuppa in that room and that verse is pretty awesome! Have a great weekend Janette! xx

  5. He Looks cute in your glasses! I love the paint colours, cant wait to see it all finished!

  6. Right now I'm thinking about how talented you are and how much I love that room you posted (a definite top ten contender!). Now I'd better get back to doing some work!! Have a great weekend x

  7. Oooh that room looks amazing, I love it so much. I think that has to go into my design file! :-)

    I'm now thinking about how much fun it would be to organise a Sydney blogger friend tea and cake afternoon...hmmmm

    Will looks so sweet with your sunnies on, you won't get them back come summer!

    Good luck with all the painting, so exciting. Be sure to show us the results!

  8. Good luck with the painting Janette. I was so excited about painting our house a few years back. It was purple with purple trim and then a little more purple! I got bored after about 3 days! We only just got it finished a few weeks ago! But now there is no purple in sight! Just cream with grey and white and a bright red door! Have a great weekend!

    I've been looking to get Gabe sunnies but can't find any that I like. I would love to get a pair of baby aviators but don't know if they exist!
