Spring Break & a Tour of Holly's House!

Hello friends and welcome to NatashaInOz.com Thanks so much for dropping by and joining me for a tour of my sister Holly's home.






It's hard to believe that our Spring break is nearly over...it seems as though our two week vacation only started yesterday! I have had such a wonderful time with my family and our beach vacation was definitely the highlight. We did so many fun things I thought I might share some "Happy Snaps" of some of the activities we enjoyed.

Spring Break

The first week of our vacation was spent at our favourite place, Mooloolaba beach on the Sunshine Coast.

There are lots of things to do at Mooloolaba....

We had a wonderful time at Mooloolaba!

During the second week of our vacation Mr Attorney had to go back to work so Maddy, Big Al and I spent time visiting family and relaxing at home. We had a lovely day visiting my sister Holly and her family. She is 28 weeks pregnant-doesn't she look amazing!

Home Tour

Holly and John have been busy renovating their home and they have done an amazing job. John is a real handyman and has done much of the work himself. Here are some of the lovely things they have been doing:

This piano used to belong to us but my kids are now focussing on the Cello and Double Bass. Holly and John have added their own Shabby Chic touch to it and it looks fabulous!

Our parents used to own this old cabinet and it too received the shabby white treatment and looks fabulous in this little nook.

I would love to show you some more pictures but I think I will dedicate a whole blog post to their amazing renovation! In the meantime here is one last collage of a lovely party they had for their son Jasper's birthday.



So, as you can see, we have had a great Spring break. Now I am counting down to 8 weeks of summer vacation in December.

Woo hoo!

Well, I'm off to go and have a cup of tea and catch up on some TV. The kids are at some friend's houses so I'm going to watch some taped episodes of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and New York in peace and quiet!

  1. What a fun break! Your vacation to Mooloolaba looks like so much fun and so does your time spent with your sister. I'm not sure which one I'd enjoy more!

    It's so funny to hear you talk of summer break in December! We're just five weeks into our new school year so my children will be envious of yours come December. :)

    Blessings to you!

  2. Thanks for visiting. I enjoyed your vacation photos. Australia fascinates me to no end, and I really hope to travel there in a couple of years.

  3. Looks like you had a great holiday Natasha. Can't wait to see a post on your sister's place - it looks amazing!

  4. I'm not sure whether I am sad or relieved that the holidays are over! This has been a tough one for us, moving house and all the unpacking, and the majority of friends away. Miss 5.5 has been a bit bored. We're waiting for our playdates to turn up soon - and of course it's raining! Argh! This means 5 little girls INSIDE. Somebody shoot me!
    I love the white piano, that is seriously adorable.

  6. Oh what beautiful pics Natasha! It does look like you had a ball on your Spring break. Nothing like warm sunny beach days, with nowhere else to be... ahhhh what life is made of! :o)
    Your sis's reno's look unreal. How lovely you were able to spend some time catching up with family. Look forward to the dedicated post on their house, love a good sticky beak, I do! xo

  13. You have the most interesting photos on your blog post. Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday and giving me your take on Blogger's new Dynamic View.

    Incidentally, I also think it's so funny to think of y'all having summer in December with ours on the flipside. Well...funny isn't the right word, interesting is better suited, which makes me think, when we have Christmas break (keep in mind I'm about winter) then what kind of holiday do you have during the winter? Just asking is all because it hit me and I had to find out.

    Have a good day, mate! ;)

  25. Ah, this makes me miss the beach so much! Glad to see you have had a great spring break. Love how your sister has decorated her home. Enjoy the rest of your week (I hate to admit it, but sometimes I watch the "Real Housewives" series as well. It's like a train wreck; you can't help but watch.)
