White

If there was one colour in my life, I’d have to say  W H I T E. Why? I love the crispness, the cleanliness and purity of how a room can change. Could we be safe and happy behind our white picket fences around our homes? The colour of  food brought out on a clean white plate. The framing of a room with clean white walls. The tone of our skin under a crisp white linen shirt. The outside view looking through a white window frame. “ The first of all single colors is white…We shall set down white for the representative of light, without which no color can be seen, yellow for the earth; green for water; blue for air; red for fire; and black for total darkness.” Leonardo Di Vinci White is the colour that belongs to the feng shui element of Metal. It’s feng shui energy is crisp, clear, clean and fresh. White is the colour of beginnings, as well as clear endings.White is the most versatile colour that can help brighten …

Brush Strokes…

An adventurous outing on the weekend, and some bidding skills throughout the family, a box of wooden scraps was purchased. Old furniture legs and cornice pieces were included in this throw away box. We quickly put our creative hats on and the DIY skills into practice and planned to make a Welcome entrance sign. Nothing too fancy! Just a little country and rustic!

A memorable stepping stone Pt 2…

The day of my wedding the sun was shining from early morning, it was an early start for me and the girls. My house was filled with warm wishes, flowers and bubbly. My sister did an amazing amount of needlework, silk roses and ribbons for my wedding. She’s very talented and creative.

As most of my family and friends, haven’t seen these memorable moments from my wedding day… leading up to our 6th wedding anniversary I’d love to share with you this special day in my life.

So the decision was made to have a garden wedding, not a common …
