A mixed bag






Are you a person that knows how to switch off? I wish I was, but I'm not - and the first three photos indicate my version of a Saturday at home with nothing to do. After a big clean, I moved some pictures and an 'op shop score' mirror around (I love passing the Rachel Castle Heart in our hallway now). I also got some gardening done - with the help of a cute flamingo from Papier D'amour. Sunday saw me out of the house for lunch with family at The White House. My four year old nephew is developing quite the foodie palate it seems - we took our eyes off him for two minutes and most of the d'affinois cheese had disappeared. Good thing I guess, as the adults had room for the almond and orange cake my big sister had prepared (let me know if you would like the recipe). I hope you all had a great weekend.

  5. It's difficult for me to completely switch off too. Sometimes I have to force myself to just relax! I love your framed heart, and the mirror. Pretty fab!
