a POP of colour!

well the start to another week is here already! thankfully Wednesday is a public holiday so this week will be just that little bit easier to get through! the sun is shining and my white lounge covers are soaking. i got thinking over the weekend that i needed to add a few pops of colour here and there to my very white/neutral colour scheme. this frame was originally antique white against and antique white wall and decided it was time for a change.
i have been very slack of late and haven't been updating our blackboards with inspiring quotes as much as i'd like to. this is one a grabbed off Pinterest this morning. even if i did write it up crooked!
i threw in some blue bottles to my usual "ALL WHITE" decorated hutch.
this cute AVON bottle is a favourite
i showed you the green 'suitcase come table' a little while ago. well i've turned it up on it's side and used it as a display table under an old window frame.
a pile of mags and books topped with pretties. my phone hides behind :)
so there you have it. i have finally found something to paint up in that awesome aqua!
frame before....
i'm off to have coffee with a friend i haven't seen in months, then it will be home to paint!

  1. Don't you just love how much you can dress up white and it looks amazing for a splash of colour. Great pics. Thanks for sharing. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  2. really cute..love the colour and the blackboard in there!

  3. I love this colour too :) And i know its only a background touch, but really like the empty frames leaning against the wall - i been trying to find ways to display empty un-used frames i like - why hide them away, and your are always so special-looking!

  4. More and more I am drawn to colour too. THe mirror really looks great . Thanks for your comment. I can recommend where we go Pets Unleashed at Morningside on Wynnum Road. Not sure if that is near you or not. There is a young guy there who is very knowledgable and helpful.We put the turtle on hold until the water in his tank was ready. They test the water for you and make sure it is perfect before you take the turtle home. They also organised the permit for the turtle which took about 10 mins. So far he has been lots of fun for very little effort. xxx
