I invested in these white lilies 10 days ago and have been waiting for them to bloom ever since. I have struck up quite a relationship with the manager of flowers at the local Harris Farm. When she notices me approach, she always points me in the direction of the freshest flowers with a smile.
I arranged these lilies with a shell rope in the bottom of the vase. Not only do they look pretty, but they assist in holding the blooms in place.
So after a Tuesday tidy up, I took a few extra shots of my kitchen/ living room. The open plan thingy works perfectly for us. The Beach House Brats are at the stage of wanting to be with Mr Beach House and I all the time, so with this set up, I can be happily fooffing in the kitchen, whilst they are sitting at the bench doing homework or eating a snack or just telling me about their day.
Those bar stools were picked up as a temporary measure two years ago, from the school fete bric a brac stall. They are still with us and I think they are a keeper. I love their vintage coastal feel. I'm still yet to recover the cushions, but what with said eating of snacks, I think I'll leave it a little longer. With Spring the school fete approaches again. Ours is being run like a country show this year and I must say I am looking forward to it.
I am entering the cake baking competition and no doubt if I have any success, you will hear all about it.
And this is the view from my kitchen window, where I shall be partaking in said baking of cakes. I do most of my best work looking at this view. On a clear day I can see to Manly. The best bit is when an ocean liner goes by....it just inspires me to keep gathering those pennies for our next travel adventure, which as you know, is one of my constant goals.
Oh and I haven't seen a whale breaching yet, but I am here often enough, so it's only a matter of time.
Have a great week people.
