love birds

Goodafternoon lovely bloggers. Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and start to the week. We've had a pretty busy weekend ourselves. Scott was away for a "boys" weekend and I went out with a bunch of girlfriends to celebrate Nicoles 25th. Scott came home on Sunday evening, quite sick.... so he's been at home recovering since Monday. He's been too sick to take outfit photos for me (sad face), so I thought I would take a few pics from around our home to show you....

I love this birdcage. It hangs on our balcony and we put candels inside it when we have dinner out there.


This is where I keep my pegs ... I have matching containers for washing powder, and tea & coffee too.


The view of the sun setting this afternoon from our balcony.


Scott having a snooze this afternoon. Poor thing - I hope he is feeling better soon!


Our cake tin sits on out dining table, on top of our cake stand (unless we have goodies on the cake stand). The love birds were our wedding cake topper.



This is a picture of part of our ceiling. We are pretty lucky to have textured ceilings in all rooms. Its so old-school, when builders and designers used to put all sorts of details everywhere. I love it.



We bought this mask in Venice in 2009 for 50 euro, and she hangs on one of our kitchen walls. We carried her around Europe for 3 weeks while we continued our tour after our stop to Venice - lucky she got home in one piece!

  14. Love the candles in the birdcage idea, and that cake tin on the stand is very cute! What a neat idea to display both stand and tin...and not even need a cake!
