My Grandma likened my sisters and I to a tin of sardines. I was shocked, but then I liked it.

Speaking of gardens...

Thursday, May 19, 2011

While I'm rambling about my backyard, I thought I'd share some images I've found while looking for inspiration. I can visualise my plans for inside the house, no worries, but when it comes to the outside and the garden I'm completely lost. I have so many ideas it starts to do my head in.
Images are from various sources, most from Desire to Inspire, the others from searches on google images (if you know the original source let me know).

Ancient ruins.

When we first saw our backyard it was, to our knowledge, rough lawn with barely any plants and a couple of big gum trees. It has two levels, and we had planned to have a big lawn to play on at the back, and a big herb and vegetable garden at the front. We could see a couple of pavers under the grass at the back, but just thought we'd pull those up and level things a bit.
To our surprise the 'few' pavers turned into a big octagon of pavers under the grass. We dug up all the pavers – a mammoth job in the middle of summer, and thought we were almost done. We were wrong. Deeper under the ground, and around the pavers was a large brick circle which we have named the 'ancient ruins'. We spent the weekend digging up the circle and stacking bricks, which we think we will build a wood fired pizza oven with. Our neighbour mentioned that there was a pool there and then a gazebo with an impressive fernery. I would have liked to have seen it.

Hummingbird heartbeat.

Even the seasons change

I want it to stay the same.

You give me that...

Hummingbird Heartbeat

Spread my wings and make me fly

The taste of your honey is so sweet

When you give me the Hummingbird Heartbeat

Double the love.

I know it's late to be posting this, but Catherine Campbell is having a half price print sale that ends today. I had been trying to decide between two of her prints when I logged on tonight and discovered her sale, needless to say my decision was easy, I bought both! I'm so excited. Quickly – visit Catherine's Etsy shop and treat yourself!

Dream home.

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

I'm a huge 'Grand Designs' fan and I'm constantly falling in love with houses on the show, but when I saw the episode featuring Kathryn Tyler's home it was love at first sight. The house is exactly what I would build, my dream home. I love Kathryn's bold choices and clever ideas. I'm not only a fan of her home, but also her work. You can visit her website to see more.
