To me (well for last week anyway). We have had a birthday, Anzac long weekend and our 7th wedding anniversary just gone (although almost forgot the wedding anniversary which is a bit sad).

Of course I was spoilt again...the lovely card above is from my sister and she also gave me a gift voucher to a store I have been dying to do to since it opened.

This cute little card is from my niece Kaitlyn...got into her mothers scrap booking stash I think!!! Thanks Kaitlyn xx

My parents also gave me a gift card for this store...I can not wait! Mum also made me this gorgeous scarf (although a bit hard to photograph). Very shabby chic indeed...
Finally got around to painting the feature wall in my bedroom and absolutely loved it...so much so that now we have decided to do the whole room in it!!! We then started going through the rest of the original part of the house that needs repainting and decorating and decided to do the dining room in this same colour as well. It doesn't happen often but I love when something comes out the way you had planned it would look in your head!!! This photo really doesn't do the colour justice...

I have also managed to talk my hubby into painting our bed white (I'll do the painting - he just had to agree)...


Another project almost completed is the frame below...I'm going to try something I found on this lovely blog Romantic Home...although not as ornate as her mirror but this might be a good little starting project to see how it turns out. I was planning on putting this frame on the wall and placing some plates inside? Will see how it goes once the dining room is painted.
On Saturday we took Ryan to the Sydney Aquarium which was a whole heap of fun...we could have spent hours in the underwater tunnel watching the sharks and giant sting rays. It was very hard to get any decent photos through the glass, especially with my camera playing up, but managed to get these few.
I love the first two photos...hard to believe but there was actually a glass wall in between Ryan and the Seal.

Hi Danielle,
Kaitlyn wants to say she was glad you liked her birthday card. Looks pretty special on your blog.
I love the colour of your room not too sure about the rest of the house?????????
Those photos of Ryan are great you really would think that he was standing right next to the seal.
Glad to hear that he is feeling better now.
By the way do you want the white chair back as it is too big under Kaitlyn's desk?
(((((HUGS)))) Mum
