On Monday I get the keys for this delightful dwelling! My housemate Bec and I will move-in in a couple of weeks. Having lived in townhouses/units for the last three years I’m so excited for a backyard and some lawn (I’m sure the excitement will wear off as soon as mowing is required). It’s a lovely old house with beautiful wooden floorboards and high ceilings. I can’t wait! Bring on Spring and garden tea parties.
New look blog:
You may have noticed some changes around here this week. The very talented Felicity from Pursuit of Felicity Designs designed my new header and I love it! She took my very vague guidelines (“ummm throw a diamond in there somewhere with swirly writing?!”) and created exactly what I was hoping for. It’s a very superior replacement to the lame header I made using some random online program akin to Word a few years ago. So thanks Felicity!
Also, and I am way too chuffed with myself for this, I created my own social media icons (they grey hearts to the right) using this tutorial from Geek Fairy as well as these free downloadable heart shaped icons. It was really easy, I wish I had done it sooner.
‘New’ colourful me
Well ‘new me’ is probably a long stretch, but I have been wearing colour all week (and silently hating it). I know the aim of this week was to extricate myself from my monochrome rut, but frankly, I’m looking forward to returning to the rut at the end of this week. Black and white are a classic combo for good reason. So there.
Plans for the weekend? This made me laugh (the flag pants!) and so did this. Have a good one!
Love the new header!
My weekend plans- heading to a vegetarian cafe for a belated birthday lunch with friends tomorrow. Wildly excited as being a vegetarian means I usually get one, often uninspired item to ‘choose’ from on a menu (roasted vegetable stack anyone? Blerggh) so it will be a treat to have an entire menu to choose from.
Omg I never considered how annoying that must be! Yeah a vegetable stack is not something I could get excited about… I hope it’s delicious! Let me know what you get.
I had corn and capsicum fritters with fresh rocket and avocado, fetta cream and grilled haloumi. Heavenly!
I think this is appropriate:
High 5 chicha!!
So much fresh and new about the place, I love it!!
Can’t wait to read about all the interior fun of your new place
I can’t wait to move in, the inside is really cute, amazing chandelier-esque light fittings!
Love the exterior of your new place hun! I am finally moving into a house next year as well and can totally relate to your excitement haha! 😛 So glad you love the header.. and great work on the social media icons! 🙂
It will be so nice to just have a change! Where are you moving to?
Thank you, haha I was rather proud of them! xx
Thanks for this post Ive had a crap weekend and logged on now to get away from some of the stuff that is happening. Its great, the house is beautiful and I like what you wrote about wearing colours because it made me smile. The colours look nice on you but your Melbourne heritage is coming out. You can take the girl out of Melbourne but you cant take the Melbourne out of the girl. And of course in Melbourne the fashion is black.
The new layout is great and good to see a diamond in there as well. Ciao for now.
I’m sorry to hear you had a crap weekend and have been having a hard time in general 😦
I wore stripes on Friday night and it just felt so relaxing and normal! It’s good to try different things once in a while.
Hope this week is better 🙂
Love the new look 🙂
