Wordless Wednesday ~ Home is...

“What is home? My favorite definition is "a safe place," a place where one is free from attack, a place where one experiences secure relationships and affirmation. It's a place where people share and understand each other. Its relationships are nurturing. The people in it do not need to be perfect; instead, they need to be honest, loving, supportive, recognizing a common humanity that makes all of us vulnerable.” 
 Gladys Hunt

This week I have been thinking about the changing seasons and am getting very excited about the arrival of Spring in September. However, I am also getting very excited about experiencing winter all over again in Paris in December! I'll be even happier if there is a little bit of snow like there was on our last trip there!

Welcome friends to this week's Say G'Day Saturday Linky party. I'm so glad you could stop by and join in the fun!

I have also been enjoying the gorgeous weather we've been having here in Brisbane. I'm so excited to think that Spring is only a couple of weeks away for all of us Down Under!  I'm sure that many of my Northern Hemisphere bloggy friends are just as excited about the arrival of Fall!

Are you ready for a new season?

I have been scouring the internet for lots of seasonal inspiration and can't wait to show you some of my favourite ideas for Spring and Fall. Yep, I'm celebrating two seasons at once here at Natasha in Oz! Here are some great ways of decorating that will only take a few minutes to change out from one season to another but will definitely look fantastic whatever the season!

 Have you had a good week? It's been simply glorious here in Brisbane these last few days. Today was particularly gorgeous reaching about 28°C (or 83°F) during the day with a sky that was as blue as the ocean!

Look at the view from my kitchen window today!

On days like this I am so grateful to be living in Australia. I'm also grateful that Spring break is only a few weeks away and there will be less of this....

Wordless Wednesday ~ My week in Instagram

Hello sweet friends. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under. I hope your week has been great so far! I have had a very relaxing day with my family today as it was a public holiday for our annual state fair. We slept in, had a late breakfast, had a long lunch at my parent's house and I had lots of fun on Instagram, PinterestTwitter and Facebook!  I've had a great day!

Here is a snapshot of my week in so far Instagram pictures!

Hubby is loving this midweek holiday! He can watch American #baseball live on #ESPN

Tuesday Tune ~ Gossling, Wild Love.

Welcome friends to this week's Tuesday Tune post! I'm so glad you stopped by to hear my favourite song of the week.

Tuesday Tune ~ Gossling, Wild Love.


This week I am actually sharing two songs from one of my new favourite artists. The first song I'm going to share this week will probably be just a little bit annoying for many of my Aussie friends but I still want to include it because I love it!

Monday, Tuesday Wednesday.....

Say G'Day Linky Party {52} ~ My Daughter Maddy is #DeterminedtoCure Cancer!

Welcome to another Say G'day Saturday Party sweet friends!

Say G'Day Saturday, Say G'day

I'm so happy that you found time out of your busy day to spend time with me today-thank you so much!

I have had another crazy week at home and at work but I have not been the only busy bee in our household!  Big Al sang in the choir and performed the Double Bass at his school's concert last night. It was such a wonderful concert-I'm very proud of him!

Maddy has also been busy rehearsing for her school's annual showcase concert tonight. She will be singing in two choirs and performing in the string ensemble. It is always a wonderful evening and this year I am part of the school's Music Support Group so I have been heavily involved in the organisation of this event.

Maddy has also been busy with her school work and she has also been busy setting up a new website! This girl is so focussed and driven!

Friday Favorites, Fashion Friday and Friday Features

Welcome friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me in my little corner of the world today. Have you had a good week? I have had another busy week at home and at school, especially because I have been doing Parent-Teacher conferences this week. I've also had a few late nights and very early mornings because I have been watching the Olympics. I really am looking forward to a relaxing and stress free weekend!

Now, if only I had a gorgeous green jacket like the one I found for this week's Fashion Friday set that I made at Polyvore! This would be the perfect outfit for stylish and relaxing weekend. What do you think? I really love these colours and I especially love those green slip on shoes. They look so comfortable!

Green & Blue Weekend



Have you got anything fun planned for the weekend? I'm going to not only relax with my family I'm also going to be relaxing by catching up visiting some of my favourite blogs.

Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage shared pictures of her latest project of a transformation of some vintage nesting tables with a coat of La Craie furniture paint.

Shasta is actually co-hosting a G+ Blog Hop on Saturday where we can link up our G+ profile page (personal and/or business) so that bloggers/sm. business owners can share information and "circle" each other. I'll definitely be linking up, especially after reading all about the power of Google+ and blogging about it here.



Kim from Made in a Day shared these summery Surfin' Party Printables for us to download for free! Thank you so much Kim!


Kimberly from A Night Owl shared this gorgeous Washi tape project made by Rachel of Harding Family Happenings, a contributor for A Night Owl. Doesn't this globe look amazing!
