Feet Love and randomness


This is my nephew, Caeleb and his new shoes we bought him. They look so big on him because of his little legs :)

I thought I would add this little picture. It's from about 2 years ago and Jason was showing Caeleb how to tie his shoelaces. He was about 3 here. They were sitting on the floor at church :)

This is what my desk looks like at the moment. It's an assortment of letters and packages that need to be put together and sent out.

This is our new lounge and the new coffee table we just bought on the weekend. I spend much of my time on this lounge, blogging, reading, writing letters and eating.

As I decorate more I will post more pictures of the house. A few things we are thinking of getting.

Via Ikea

It's actually a chest of drawers but we are going to use it as a buffet and put it under the staircase.

And I would love to this shaded chandelier for our lounge room. We have a sloped ceiling and part of it is quite high and we thought a chandelier would be perfect. But at the moment it's more a want than a need so most likely won't be getting it for awhile :(

One day I will do a post about how I would like to decorate our home and other inspirations. This might be my last post of the week because starting tomorrow it will be a week of wedding activities for my brother and his fiance.

Taken by Laura

Wedding week includes...hens night, family dinner, rehearsal and wedding day on Saturday. I hope the weather holds out! There will be fun times I'm sure.

Have a wonderful rest of week!

P.S. I told you this is a very random post.

Ooh, I spot that desktop organizer thing from Kikki.K! :) Lovely. Your table looks really nice. I'm so glad my cousin went over to Adelaide for a bit and I've managed to get a hold of some Kikki.K items for myself.

All things wedding is definitely so wonderful. Glad you're having a good time amidst the many things you've got on your plate. I definitely love your new lounge and the coffee table goes so well with it! x
