*A Very Happy Unbirthday To Me*.....

Well hello there....how is your day treating you??? If you remember towards the end of last year I started repainting my house to make it lighter well so far I have done Dylans room which has gone from pink to cream & the hallway which went from green to cream.... We have put the linen cupboard back into the hallway so my Darlin' has made up new shelves & we were given some old doors... no not the oh to die for doors... just plain boring doors with the most ugliest handle on it..... but this year I am going to recycle more which means more thrifting, gotta love that.... & so here she is waiting to be painted....


After a good clean I set her up outside to paint but as the past 2 days have been stinking hot here I will have to wait for cooler weather.... then she will be prettied up....

I love this chair to me she has the most beautiful legs & she use to reside out on our front veranda until I had a major clean up & change around late last year & placed her out the back. Well my Denzil (dog) decided to make it his new bed & sitting spot until the other day I removed the seat & started scrubbing it.... received a *OK whats going on here* look from him, took the chair down the back to clean..... *it's fine as it is Mum*.... left it out to dry....*looking good, drying nicely*.... until I took it inside....*NOT THE CHAIR MUM.....*TELL ME NOT MY CHAIR*.....Well do I need to say here how bad I was feeling, hope I don't think so. Anyway I then brought the door out & leaned it out the back while I went to get the table to place it on, turned around & there was my Denzil....wait for it...... PEEING ON IT*. So now the look on his face was *well that's what you get for taking my bed*.... seems I was told....

So although the hallway is not quite finished yet I thought Id show you all a little section of it.... everything on this sideboard has a very special meaning to me.... the clock my Sister gave to me a few years ago, photo of my Mum, Dad & I taken last year when I went home (on my birthday), the beautiful crystal & silver Decanter my Mum & Dad gave me, my gorgeous Taska taken a few years ago.....


Simple but all meaningful.....



Beautiful scented candle in a box with a crystal knob on top that Taska gave me one Mothers Day,crystal jar with Lavender inside my Aunty gave me, sweet smelling roses out of my garden, beautiful jewelry box my sister in-law gave me for my birthday one year.....




A tiny oil burner I gave to my Mum years ago either for her birthday or Mothers Day....she gave it back to me a couple of years ago, the top has broken a couple of times & I was even considering throwing it out but just couldn't in the end, a very treasured photo of *Mary Tasker Adair* my beautiful Grandma, a crystal/glass container I bought from Alicia @ http://timewornstyle.blogspot.com/ .....



Lastly a beautiful address book, oh & underneath everything, a runner I crocheted years ago...all priceless to no one but me, all having a meaning, all greatly loved....
Tomorrow is my unbirthday.... what I mean is I was due to be born on this day 50 years ago which by the way is also Elvis Presley's birthday but I chose to put off arriving for another 2 weeks & came into this world on my feet NOT my head..... I am finding I am going back inwards to myself... & have to admit I am finally learning to like what I see..... life is pretty good...
Wishing you all a great day....xxx
