Trash to Treasure

We are currently building a new house, and I am constantly on the look out for that "right" piece of furniture. A little visit to St Vinnies saw me leave a very happy lady.

This little nest of tables look a little tired but I have a plan!!!

And after a little bit of love, this is what they look like now.  Sorry about the bad photo, I will post some better ones soon.


My husband was working on Mother's day and I was looking for something for the kids and I to do together. We went lemon picking. I know it doesn't sound quite like a run of the mill Mother's Day activity, but we had a blast. And boy did we pick enough lemons to almost last a lifetime, the kids just didn’t want to stop. And after giving paper bags full to friends and family, a big batch of lemon butter, eating lots of fish (with freshly squeezed lemon) and my first attempt at homemade lemon cordial, they have almost all gone. We are now planning our next lemon picking day!

What started out with me trying to take some photos of the lemons and my new op-shop find
(the basket) quickly turned into a photo shoot with miss"E"!!
