Weekend in Pictures

Shutters for the bathroom.

Timothy O’s hinged glasshouses.

We hedged.

Played with these cute mops for a bit.

Found these chairs!

Thought I would start a new little segment here on the blog called ‘Weekend in Pictures’, just some quick snaps of our weekend. I don’t usually post on Mondays,  as I’m buzzing around getting the week ahead sorted and still wondering where the weekend went to… at least this way I can see where all the time was spent over the weekend…..

Well, we had the market on Saturday, which was a cracker of a Market! Thank you all who came by to see us and I hope you are loving your new found treasures!

Timothy O and I then decided we would do some bits around the house over Saturday afternoon and Sunday, which is sort of standard for us. When you renovate you tend to collect a lot of shit  salvaged materials, very useful when the right project pops up if the right project doesn’t pop up, then you just end up with endless piles of old shit laying around everywhere. We decided to use a few of our salvaged materials for some projects.

We made a pair of bathroom shutters out of some old VJ’s to go on the window above our bath – very french. I get such a thrill opening and closing them!

Timothy O, feeling inspired by this glasshouse made some hinged little glasshouses for our veggie patch from old windows from our house. Did you know that if you want to eat from your garden each day, then you need to plant something each day too… gosh.

We then got the front hedges back in order; with all of this rain and heat our hedges had turned into rather large green leafy monsters.

Hung out with the girls.

Then I found a perfect set of four swivel chairs in the most delicious buttermilk colour! I am still tossing up as to whether I should sell them or keep them… story of my life. Ha.

That was it… that was our weekend. We also celebrated being engaged for a year; Yay!

What did you do?
