I Shall Be





Yay for the weekend, and oh what a week it has been! I have been bank wrangling, but at last I think we're done. In three months time, I shall be moving into a slice of sixties loveliness. Timber framed picture windows, patios, fireplaces with stucco finish, massive old school pool, and wait for it - painted brick.

It's all manner of browns and oranges right now, and will have to slooooowly evolve, as this one has taken some doing (damn WA real estate market!), but, there will be loads of fun to show along the way. First up I think will be replacing orange glass and smashing down the bar. Well, perhaps a little tipple first, then the smashing.

I can be strangely superstitious, so I'm not going to jinx it by showing you pictures now, but come settlement day, will let you in on the deets.

Hoping your weekend is looking something like the v.cool images above, mine is sadly not, I'm sadly lacking on the amazing I've-just-got-back-from-morocco leather work.

But nevertheless thanks so much for popping in this week, and as always a special shout out to these lovely people.....

You have teased us mercilessly Jules so I am impatient to see what you have purchased. The orange glass and bar sounds fabulous to me! Hope the 90 days go quickly for you.

Well, Jules, there's certainly no better woman than you to ensure that the chic dignity of the sixties loveliness wins through. And you drink that bar dry before you raise a sledgehammer to it.

No you didn't miss the pic's, I never got round to it. But I'll take some snaps for you & email them. I'm just a bit hopeless with the camera, I need to practice.

Hope the boy's are doing great.
