*~*Scrubbing The Floor Jilly Style*~*

I scrubbed the kitchen floor Jilly style  with bicarb soda and vinegar,  and I must say the floor has come up a treat!
Now to sand back the old sealer and prepare the floor for a new coat of sealer!! I am looking forward to the end result!
Fun, Fun, Fun!!! ❤️💛💚💙💜 (My wife's idea of fun is not mine! But that's a good thing because she likes it so I don't have to do it!! Antony)

*~*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!!

*~*A New Family Table*~*

Hi there I am back again to share with you the new kitchen table that I bought!
Firstly the table I finished in December did not end up staying in our kitchen, I have two wonderful Autistic men that I love more than words would let me tell you; however they are both  6'4" and 6'5" and one of them is not slim in fact we are both working hard at losing weight together which is a ton of fun - perhaps!

Anyhoo, back to the table; with the chairs around it we really couldn't walk around the kitchen freely we kept knocking the chairs around, so we went off to IKEA and bought a smaller table, which I really like. I decided to paint the legs my favorite color Pink and the cross bars White and I vanished the table top as my precious Mr. A loved the pine wood, so here it is as you have seen the chairs match and I am so happy with it all it came together so well - I think! 😊
Tell me what you think in the comments!
Love and Hugs to you all.💞💞💞



*~*Old Chairs Made New*~*

Well, Hi there! I have been very busy panting and sanding and painting and stenciling our new chairs and having fun doing it! I saw them on the side of the road at a cleanup the shire council does twice a year, and I thought I might as well have a go at reinventing them. I must say I am happy with how they are turning out! My precious Mr. A has helped by fitting new seats to them as I removed the old ones; a big thank you to him for all he does in helping me make our little house a home.
I have bought material to sew some seat covers but that is for another day!
Here are some before and after photos, I hope you like them let me know - I love your comments!!! 💞💞💞💞(Mr A. here. I haven't completed the seats yet. Every time I try to work on another one, something else intervenes. The last 'interruption' was deploying insect 'bombs' throughout the house to kill unwanted insects, not that I can think of any insects you would actually want in a house!) I love You!!!

The Before! 

The After!
