progress of sorts

It's been an extraordinary day of busy-ness at the tranquil townhouse today.  The MGM put up my Ikea shelf in the study this morning...we won't tell anyone about the slight problems we had with that!
I finished painting the pergola...and got a very sore back and shoulder as a result, but I'm pleased that the Mission Brown has gone to its maker! Can you spot the Vampire Slayer in the photo?
I undercoated two bedside tables and the ugly bookshelf in the bedroom...this one...yuck...can't believe how much better it looks when project is done.
and framed my very kitsch but oh-so-lovable heavily beaded Taj Mahal cushion cover I bought in India a few years ago.
and, oh yeah...bought these gorgeous Eiffel Tower paper clips yesterday...too cute, from there's one dangerous store to hang about in., to use the great Australian vernacular...I'm knackered and off to watch Dr Who.
Will leave you with this lovely study in lieu of a photo of mine which, despite the shelf is still a work in progress!

Enjoy the working week.


  1. Hey Kerry, I'm really enjoying your blog. I've just caught the home-design bug too! In the last two weeks I've learnt to sand, paint, and polish furniture. Looking forward to your next post.

  2. It's fun isn't it? Although I am convinced that painting provides far too much thinking space for my liking! Thanks so much for the feedback. I'm really glad you like the blog.


I love it when you comment...I feel excited, chuffed and tranquil all at the same time! Thank you.
