House Rules

30 Aug

I want this for my future child’s room.


Painting Alice.

30 Aug

I’ve been meaning to get my paints out for, literally months, but I could never think of something worth painting. That is, untill I was searching ‘cocker spaniels’ on Etsy, and found a few silhouetted pictures of them. I really wanted to paint one of Alice.

So I did!

I’m going to paint Fry next!

Mister Fry.

24 Aug

Forgive the awful quality, but I didn’t have much time to get these photos-

he would’ve jumped down if he thought I was moving about behind him.

Fry is such a protective dog!

He was so scared when we first got him but he’s gained alot of confidence, and is always hanging near the doors or windows and barking at the neighbours. I like it.

He’d scare anyone away!

I love him so much, he’s such a sweet-hearted boy.


21 Aug

We’ve been home from Victoria for two weeks, and since we got back life has been pretty hectic. It was busy before we left, but having ten days away, doing nothing but eating deliciousness, reading in front of fires and site-seeing makes our normal lives seem insane!

Being away always make me realise

a) How much I LOVE being Australian. Seeing different parts of our country makes me realise how blessed I was to be born here.

and b) That I ‘ do enough site-seeing and touristy things in my own city of Brisbane. I have been motivated to visit the information centre next time I go into the City and have a look at whats going on in my own city. I swear tourists learn heaps more about the places they’re visiting than the people who live there already!

We managed to not spend too much money in Melbourne, because we only bought 23kg of check in luggage, but without a doubt the BEST purchase I made were these Cocker Spaniel bookends from the Art Gallery in Melbourne!

I was pretty much hyperventilating when I saw these, because at home I have a living, breathing one of them!

I missed Alice and Mr. Fry immensely.

I will be posting more about our Melbourne trip, because I do want to remember every single detail. It was amazing.
