Happy Australia Day!

It's been a while since I last published a post, mainly due to being on holidays and not having much time to think about decorating etc. Having the kids home most days means the house is rarely clean enough for 'nice' photos!

It's been a great holiday, and hard to believe the kids are back at school next week. Although between you and me I'm quietly looking forward to some 'me' time so I can have a clean house and window shop 'till my heart's content again!

So what's new? Not much! The only thing that has really changed is the addition of my Eiffel Tower print on the wall in the hallway:

It was a bargain to create, with the frame costing me about $70 at IKEA, and the print...well, it's actually a piece of wrapping paper which cost me less than $8. I have several more to frame, but I'm still unsure just where to hang them. Maybe that's a post topic in itself!

I have spent about 3 weeks away at Flinders on the Mornington Peninsula, approximately 75km away from Melbourne. It's a gorgeous coastal town surrounded by rolling hills and rocky seas, and we just love relaxing there! With views across Western Port Bay to Phillip Island, and across into Bass Strait...how could we not!

Thanks A-M, please feel free to! The paper is from Cavallini & Co. ;-). I have their 2009 and 2010 Paris easel calendars which I plan on cutting up and framing into a collage next year as another cheaper alternative too...
