Here are some pretty pastels for one of the bedrooms. The Astor radio I loved instantly! It doesn’t work but that didn’t deter me. It was the lovely buttery yellow that caught my attention, so therefore its main purpose is to be pretty. I don’t know anything about old radios or their value. I did try to source some information, but I couldn’t find another radio that matched mine. I don’t really care about the value….I was just curious.
The following three glasses were also purchased for their loveliness and because they look like half open flowers. They are purely for decoration and look so pretty with radio. WARNING! Super Girly room in progress! 😉 It will have soft greens, yellows, pinks and charcoal. I’ll also be attempting my own DIY headboard. Wish me luck!
So we headed to Winterfell with another small truck filled with goodies. My Mum and Dad joined us for the day trip, which was a wonderful way to combine work and pleasure. And just quietly, my Dad is super clever and multi talented in ways my husband is not. Don’t worry, my husband has his own gifts, but Dad was so helpful sorting out the gas hot water and how to start the heating. I was worried Mum would be bored while we unloaded the truck, but she enjoyed my favourite red chair on the porch in the sun and also spent some quality time with my children. All in all, it was a great day! The red chair above was another fabulous find from the Molong junk shop or treasure trove as i call it. I think it was a wrought iron bed in a previous life. I really love this chair. And RED! My favourite colour for more reasons than one…..three in fact! The initials of my children – Rose, Eilish and Daniel. xo
Here is a sneak peak of some the spaces in Winterfell that are coming together. Overall, i am happy with the progress so far. Some of the spaces are not coming together as i planned….remember my scrapbook? Who knew that things wouldn’t go perfectly to plan? *insert sarcasm here* But i am not disheartened.
Please note replica antique or fancy pants chairs (as i call them) in the background behind the black stools. I really love these chairs and they were a bargain found on ebay, but i dislike them intensely (my mother always said hate was a strong word) in the main living area. NO MATTER! They will be dispersed throughout the house in the bedrooms and i will find something else for around the dining room table.
And finally, some photos my daughter Rose took from the car on the way home. My husband and other children were following in the truck. Ahhh…..the beautiful Australian landscape is hard to take for granted.
