*~*A Family Table*~*

From this...

Too this...

I have been so busy at "Pink Rose Cottage. My Mama and Daddy gave us a table the we had all sat around as a family because they updated theirs. So I decided to reinvent it and I am so happy with how it turned out. I love having furniture that has family history in my home - it makes me feel that my home is warm and cosy.
I love that I am able to have it in my kitchen (if only for awhile) where I spend a lot of time baking, cooking, folding washing and all the other things I do for my family on a daily basic.
Life here is good praise God.
Love and Hugs.

*~*A Broken Freezer*~*


Life has been humming along at our little “Pink Rose Cottage”. We found out the other day that our freezer died along with most of the food that was in it! Boy was the bin heavy with all the dead food in it!! I am praising God for insurance because it covers the cost of the food, which is a good thing since the freezer was almost full!

Consequently, we have dismantled the island bench that hid the freezer so we can have a table and chairs in our kitchen. That way family and friends can sit and chat as I prepare food for my precious family (and friends, if they are staying).

I was amazed at the dust and gunk that we couldn’t see under the freezer; I am almost happy it died. I always vacuumed and swept under it as far as I could, but I could not get at the ‘multitude of sins’ the island bench was hiding out of reach!

I am so excited to show you the entire kitchen as I get it done.

...and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. Psalms 103:16

Love and Hugs.

*~*The Lattice is Up*~*

The top one is the before and the bottom one is the after. I like the after better.  I am now looking forward to planting out the flower beds around our little home and painting the pergola in the blue. I feel so wonderful that it is all coming together!

*~*Making A Come Back and Loving It*~*

Hello, everyone. I have been missing from here for a while - life has been so busy with medical appointments, NDIS for my men folk and a wonderful holiday in NSW and Canberra, but I am hoping to make more posts starting from today.
My posts will be about everyday adventures, what I learn in my time with God and what I am musing about at "Pink Rose Cottage".
So, more later as I need to take some photos to show what I have been up to here, and what I am doing in our garden, with before and after photos. It will all happen tomorrow - so stay tuned.
Blessing and Love, Jilly.  (I managed to get the lattice up! You'll probably see photos soon - Antony) Thank you Honey, I love you and you have done a wonderful job; it looks beautiful.
