Took myself, Zoe and Mum off to the markets on Sunday morning early. I hadn't been to these markets for years and was imaging all the lovely things I'd find however we were sadly disappointed. There doesn't seem to be as many "junk" stalls as there used to be, mostly plants and clothing. I did find this cute little man just staring up at me and felt sorry for him so decided he had to come home with me. A little clean up and he now looks happy up on my wall...I wonder who he is??
I looked up the studio on google and discovered that the studio only operated from 1908 to 1913.
Mum has finished off the cot quilt for Zoe's room and has almost finished off the bed quilt as well. Hard to get a good photo, but looks lovely in person.

Another quilt my Mum made for me recently, this one will go in the guest room/office/playroom...the last room in the house to get renovated and probably the most difficult.

Anyone with some good ideas that will incorporate all these functions would be appreciated...even better...if you know of anyone that would love to come over and actually just do it would be appreciated even more!

It is finally Spring here and there is nothing like flowers picked from your garden to brighten up the house. My son keeps picking these beautiful Camellias and I've put them all through the house. I'm loving the red against all the neutral.

We recently had a family photo shoot that my sister did and these are 2 of my favourite photos from the day. Of course Zoe slept the entire time and only woke as we were leaving.

Just look at the hair!! Hard to believe she is 3 months old tomorrow. We also have another new family member...Silver. Ryan competed in the recent Mounted Games at Terrey Hills and received a fourth place ribbon for his efforts.

Bit of a family post today. Must get stuck into crossing off some of my Maternity Leave List, as of next week I have several things to paint so will put up some before & after shots.
