All in (2) Day's Work

Sometimes I don't know how the weekend got here and then I'm not sure where it's gone but in this one we managed to re-plant the Beatrice Emily's I very lazily put in back here.  Note to self, a hole in the grass does not a flower bed make.

The Beas are already looking much chirpier.

More importantly we started the makeover of the backyard.  Methinks the plants may as well get a head start on the renovations.  My beauty gift to the planet is this - I will be  covering every urglee inch of our colorbond fence with hedge.  You're welcome.  As of yesterday, the magic has begun as we've started putting in more Murrayas (Orange Jasmine) around the circumference of the yard.  I love their shiny dark green leaves and their scent while flowering (which they do numerous times a year) is quite exotic.  More to the point though, along with our Gardenias and hopefully the baby Beas, they are the ONLY plants we have managed to keep alive in our 6 years in the house.  Green thumbs we are not.

On their way to the backyard.

Of course at this time of year it wouldn't be a weekend without a last minute dash to the shops and naturally as my Christmas motto is let no stone be left unturned in the hunt for new and fabulous ornaments, I didn't.

So much fabulosity.

This morning I spent a pleasant little while adding them to our flailing tannenbaum, there's starting to be some serious weight in there.  Because I'm a sharer I'll tell you where just in case any of them are speaking to you personally:

1. Little gold bear & aqua sequin ball are from Freedom.
2. Clear glass pear is from Country Road.
3. Miniature bells star is from Witchery.
4. The cute little birdhouse & gold butterfly are from Bed Bath N Table (and with the birdhouse coming in at $6.75, I am a saver!).
5. The silver teardrop (that opens),  big-eyed dog, vintage glass scenes and initial ornaments ($3.95, did I mention SAVER) are all from Domayne.

Then it was off to my regular Monday after school date with a quick cuppa before ballet...

...and tonight I'm looking forward to catching up on my new favourite shows.

The day is done.  Hope you've all had a lovely weekend and this week is shaping up OK too :)



  1. um. fabulosity? best word ever. I'm using it. oh and I love your taste in Chrissy decorations. Very cool m'dear x

  2. There is not better time of the year than Christmas for it so use away! Every time I look up at my framed Love Actually poster I think of you and how you must be experiencing SO MUCH fabulosity over there at the moment. Too much fun. xx

  3. Yay! I can't wait to come & see the tree~ in fact I think I'll come there first before I hit the shops... :)

    Tamma xx

  4. Always welcome Tam, I'm nothing if not informative when it comes to tannenbaum bling :) I've yet to spend any marigolds down your way yet so rest assured there'll be more of this type of OTT Yuletide information to come xx

  5. Things are looking good, Nicole!
    Hope you have a very Happy week! xx

  6. Well thanks, gardening gives you such immediate results for your toil doesn't it. Nx

  7. Garden is looking lovely! Makes me quite ashamed of mine (but not ashamed enough that I’ll do anything about it – I hate gardening)! Are we going to see the tree in all it’s glory?

  8. I really quite enjoy it Meghan though I have no real skill for it, I certainly love how immediate the results are though. Will certainly post pics of the tannenbaum in completion but thought I should be sensible and wait until the 1st of December :) Has your tree gone up yet? Nx

  9. Good for you for having a green thumb. I certainly do not!

  10. Well I give myself full marks for trying Kendall x

  11. Lovely ornaments! Have a wonderful day, Kellie xx

  25. Hiya. I noticed your website title, "Blogger: First House on the Right" doesn't really reflect the content of your internet site. When creating your website title, do you believe it's most beneficial to write
    it for Web optimization or for your readers? This is one thing I've been battling with because I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my site visitors.
