🌸🌸🌸The Garden🌸🌸🌸

 This is how it all looked awhile back:


Guess which one I would rather have? Thank you Ross for all your hard work!
The garden beds will have Roses and Lavender in them and we are going to put down lawn. I am also thinking of putting in a MagnoliaTree right in the middle of the lawn!

*~*I love turning a house into a HπŸ’›me! *~*

This is how they came from IKEA! I love, love, love IKEA!!

This how I have decorated them they are not quite finished - but getting there!
What do you think?

*~*So Far So Good*~*

I have finished the parquet floor in our bedroom now I just need to sand it back and re-seal it and the floor is finished. I am so happy I was able to make new parquet pieces (some of the old stuff was rotten)to fill in some of the gaps it may not be perfect but it doesn't need to be - it is a HπŸ’—me not a display house!!!
Love to all. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

After battling to keep up with my home and all the things that life has been throwing at me, I have decided to go back to the beginning with Flying through my day, so here goes:
Day 1 - shinning my sink is all done and looking good; it was so special to wake up, walk into our kitchen and see a shiny sink in front of me. It was wonderful not to see a sink full of crap!
I am looking forward to starting my days off with a clean and shining sink! Do you use FlyLadies ideas and methods? If so I would love to know how they work for you.
Love Jilly ❤️πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

*~*The First Fire For This Winter*~*

It's my favorite time of the year - "Winter"! I love being able to light the fire and enjoy its cosy comforts, especially the first fire of the year - like last night's! Somehow this time of the year bring me so much joy; the leaves have turned golden, the nights are getting longer with more time to snuggle, it is time for homemade soup and stews... and the list could go on - I just love it! 
I also love baking in the winter - our home smells like love. I think there is something special about the smell of homemade goodies like bread, biscuits (cookies), soup, apple crumble and apple pies! 
Life is just more wonderful in Winter... now I just need it to snow ☃️- however I don't think that will happen here... Perth is just too darn hot!

*~*Another One Getting Done*~*

Well, today I am working on the next three chairs that I am doing for our kitchen; life has been so busy and I haven't gotten back to them till now!
Joshua fractured a bone in his foot (5th metatarsal) at Barbagallo raceway watching the V8's, and then developed a dreadful rash, so needless to say my life has been very busy. That coupled with the sad fact that my precious Mama was admitted to hospital the same day with fluid in her lungs, Mr A and I have not stopped. However, as busy as it has been here at "Pink Rose Cottage", it has also been good! Life has a habit of going on and keeping us busy. I am currently reading "The Simple Home" by Rhonda Hetzel. It is a wonderful book and I am really enjoying it!

Mama is out of hospital and doing well even though she is very tired. We have had wonderful news: my Sister is coming over in a week to spend sometime with us all, so that is wonderful, and I am looking forward to seeing her and spending time catching up!
Well, I am off to put a loaf of bread on and finish one of the chairs. Dinner is cooked; I just need to dish it and then it will be ready to be enjoyed by my family! 
As I am typing this out I can hear the mulcher going; Mr. A is mulching up some garden rubbish and turning it into garden treasure. We are hoping to put in a veggie garden in a couple of weeks so we can be a little more self-sufficient!

*~*What Is On My Needles*~*

I just wanted to share my latest project with you all; my knitting! It is coming along well, as you can see  I am knitting a pair of socks for my precious Hubby and I am really enjoying the experience it's been fun! Mr. W is partly colour blind so colour means a lot to him, therefore, I had to make sure he could see the colors in the wool I was knitting! I think I nailed it - yes?

*~*New Kitchen Tiles*~*

We bought new tiles for the kitchen today and decided to go with some colour as everything else in there is either white or pine! What do you think? 
I am so happy with them, Antony is partly colour blind so it is so important to have splashes of colour that he can see and I am thanking God we found these and all up they only cost us $30.00!!
