Don't mind the carrot.
Introducing the 'English Ticking Romans' in my kitchen. Unfortunately my dinky little camera has not captured the true 'duck egg blue nature' of these beauties. I photographed them in the evening (excuse the grated carrot on the bench top) and also in the morning ('big son' was on dishwasher unpacking duties) to attempt to capture the colour. Hmmm, sort of!
Oh and as much as I adore our new neighbours, on the kitchen side, it is going to be so nice not to not appear like I am peering into their lives every time I sit at the kitchen bench in my jammies!This is a tricky stage in the project for me. I have 'almost, sort of, nearly' run out of funds (if I am to remain exactly on budget and not over capitalize) and this is where one needs it...... at this end of the project .....and not the 'squillions of dollars of boring site works and retaining walls' end of the project. I have to pick and choose where to spend the dollars.... hence the hand painting of the Adirondacks and the brutal DIY landscaping days we are suffering through... oh my back!
The decorating part is oh so much fun though. I have purchased some delightful and very affordable antique caricature lithographs of famous scientists and medicos, off Ebay.... very relevant to both our science and medical backgrounds. I will frame them in black and hang them in the study. Hubby is very happy with my purchases and is enjoying 'getting in touch with his feminine side' in this decorating part. Thank goodness he is too busy to read my blog! Sorry darling!
I will post some more pictures of the Study and the Great Room windows in the coming days.
