Dining room fix and trix

After the school holidays, it was nice to tidy up a bit and reclaim the dining room lol 
Too many toys had invaded my space...☺ 

So nice with a clean room!

My antique Swedish wooden tray on top of my vintage Swedish runner.
Look at the details in the weave - amazing craftsmanship!

A few pine cones
- simple yet beautiful! 

My collection of blue and white transferware.

Our antique Irish hutch. 
It has the most beautiful rich colour
We bought the hutch at an antique store in Brisbane 
before we even knew if it would fit the space.
It was love at first sight♥

I wonder how long it will look this tidy,
before the toys, 
the homework and the crayons 
slowly will creep in and take over...☺

Holiday fun in the small local park

Thinking back on our Spring holiday.
We visited a few different parks.

This one the kids have named 'Mormor's Park'
(Maternal grandmother's park 
mor = mother
mormor = mother's mother)

We used to go there with her when the kids were younger and Mormor was here for a visit. Soon she'll be here with us again. It's been three years! The kids have grown so much since Mormor was here last.

Back to school - back to reality

First school day after our school holiday!
Back to school - back to reality.

At the end of the week,
kids won't have any problem waking up at 6am.
This morning it was a bit tricky.
I'm pretty sure tomorrow will be one of those mornings too.

Nighty night!

My beautiful children...

I created this photo on instagram the other day and posted it straight away with the caption: "Ha, the kids do love each other once in a while"... ☺

... Yep, sometimes... ♥

Today we are going back to school after our two week holiday.
It's time for Term 4.

Only 10 weeks until it's time for our Summer Holiday/Christmas break.
I'm pretty sure it'll go fast!

Can't believe that Jonah will be in Grade 3 in 2015 and Lily will be in Prep shortly.
Only a few months to go and they'll both be at school.
Where has the time gone?

Kebab lunch in the park

Today is the last day of the school holidays. 
It's our Labour Day Public Holiday.

Yum yum

Swish, only 10 weeks until the the next holiday☺

Autumn tones in the middle of Spring

I've come to realise that I slowly moving away from blue and getting more into natural brown tones. I love to use different textures and materials when I decorate, lots of wood, knitted rugs, fur and natural materials. I'd love to add more fur, a stag horn and more rustic timber... 

A crochet bed spread at the back of the sofa and  an IKEA throw rug to sit on makes the space more comfortable, but also protects the pressed leather from scratches and damage. Did you know that the furniture we bought isn't supposed to be used - it's only for display lol Great stuff when you have kids who love to jump around everywhere...

The Australian sun heating up the lounge room

I love fur, real and faux. Must be my Viking blood lol

Brown, cream and whites

Love my new luxury faux fur blankets - so soft and cozy!
Love the feel of them.

The corner where I sit and flip through magazines and books!
Looks like a perfect Autumn corner - in the middle of Spring.
