rocking chair redo

i'm back as promised with some pretty cute rocking chairs if i do say so myself!
a friend picked up the child sized one from a market and gave it to me saying "i just know you can do something with this!"
so, not wanting to disappoint, painted the little baby right up in the softest of greens- 1/4 strength Peaceful Bay to be exact. Kacey's room is painted in it and i so love it. it really is a peaceful colour too! you can see her room here.
Mumma chair got the white treatment. and a shabby up of course.
both chairs are now living in my classroom- i'm team teaching a Grade One class with a friend this year, and we're pretty excited about it!
i have made many a raggy quilt, but never a raggy cushion, and the teacher chair just had to have some colour.
they make a cute pair don't you think?
before pic....
back to work tomorrow ARGG!!

beach holiday take two- the iPhone pics!

ok, so this is only the 2nd time i've blogged since waaaay before the school holidays even started!
to say i've been mega slack would be an understatement!
it would be fair to say that i lost my bloggy mojo during the break, but i'll endeavour to come here and say hi a little more often than i have of late!
instagram would definitely be the cause of some my laziness ;) it's so easy to pop a pic up here and there to show what we've been up to.

sooo, here i am, and i just have to show off some more piccies from our holiday by the beach. these pics are all from my iPhone. my last post showed photos from my camera only- truth be told i couldn't be bothered downloading the photos from my iphone. i know. slack. as.

i couldn't help but bring back armfuls and pocketfuls of beachy treasure on every walk i went on.
the weather was super duper perfect the whole week.
the girls and i had some fun getting henna tattoos at the local markets
pinks and blues
breathtaking beach beauty
Kacey climbed this tree across the road from our little flat nearly everyday
the beautiful Dickies Beach wreck
fun shadow shots with my girls
i'll be back very soon (i promise!!) with a recent makeover

our week at the beach

happy new year to you all! it's been quite a long time between posts
here, so thought i'd pop in and share some holiday pics with you.

after a super hectic end to the school year, 
we headed off to the Sunshine Coast for a week at the beach. 
it was just what our little family needed.
water views and a huge park across the road
early morning walks
afternoon drinks on the balcony
feeding the birds
exploring the rock pools
my new beach bag from a local gift shop
cute wheels!
fresh sea breezes
blue skies
the perfect beach holiday
