duck egg blue chairs

good morning :)
thought i'd show you some lovely old bentwood chairs i found earlier in the week.
( and some ruby red roses Mike bought me)
i think they are the PERFECT shade of blue.
duck egg blue would you say?
thinking i might have to drag one of these chairs down to
Bunnings and get them to 'colour match' and make me up in a tin of paint...
pretty up against my blue floral "Cath Kidston" look tablecloth.
all the chairs needed was a good scrub. no painting needed.
we have my brother, sis-in-law and gorgeous 2 year old nephew staying with us for a week.
my 31 week pregnant sista and i have hit loads of op shops and some garage sales early this morning. i keep checking that she's not too tired to keep shopping and get the same reply each time "NO! i'm fine!" LOVE that we have bargain hunting/shopping in common.
she can't wait for the Sunday markets tomorrow :)

a few finds from this week:
*chenille bedspreads
*tea cup and saucer
*tiny glass cloche
(just fits my crystal napkin holders underneath)
again, the weather is beyond perfect up here in Brisbane.
sunny skies and a top of 24* forecast for the whole week.
i have lots of painting projects to do, but not with a 2 year old around! might have to wait
till next week ;)
