I have been busy avoiding the rain and decorating the house this week. You see the weather here in Brisbane has been wet and miserable these last few days-more than 160 mm or about 6 1/2 inches has fallen, without a break, in the last 24 hours and the weather bureau is warning of a possible further 200 mm today. Apparently we have received the best rain for a century in the last couple of days alone....inside weather for sure!
This rainy old weather is just perfect for taking pictures of the garden for Outdoor Wednesday with Susan then quickly coming back inside to decorate tables for Marty's Table Top Tuesday party whilst sipping hot tea and eating home made shortbread with Wanda Lee at the Plumed pen!
I never thought that rainy days could be so much fun!
I have re-decorated our little wine cabinet in our lounge area with a few of my favorite things. Can you see that it is 10:30 in the morning and I need to turn on some lights? This is quite a novelty for me!
I swapped the cream tassel above for the pretty pink beaded tassel that I am giving away as a thank you to my beautiful followers.
The beautiful Tiffany lamp was a birthday present from my wonderful husband.
I placed the sweet little silver birds on some books about England that were given to us by....wait for it....
my youngest sister's husband's older sister!
I wanted to display my dome clock today to show Marty since she is the Queen of cloches, domes and all things beautiful!
The rain still hasn't gone away....
Oh well, I might as well catch up with some reading, blogging and a cup of Yorkshire tea!
I think I might also have some yummy home made Scottish shortbread while I read my new magazines that arrived the other day!
This month's issue of American House Beautiful is, well, beautiful!
Have you seen the blog that I have just started with my two sisters? It is called 3 Sisters,365 and we are posting a picture a day. We have just posted our first pictures - Just click here if you would like to check it out.
If this rain continues like this for the next few days I will have time to redecorate every table top and surface in the entire house, finish reading all of my magazines, bake several batches of shortbread and take lots of photos for both of my blogs! Who needs vacuuming and dusting when you can have this much fun!
Thank you Marty, Wanda Lee and Susan for having me today and thanks so much to you for visiting-it is always lovely to catch up with friends!
Best wishes always,
Natasha In Oz
