my treasure's-

i cant help myself - i love decorating our house- i move everything around-not once but 2 or 3 times-i love in the mornings when the house is still a sleep and the young boys are still warm in bed- and I'm just hearing my Mr Australia wake up-I've been up for a while- and lite my morning candle and given a little blessing-then i make my morning coffee -that is a must-i had my darling sweet nanna stay last night so -that was the most beautiful time- after i made the beds and sweeped the floors, nanna and i then went op shopping-well i found this beautiful dress.-its white with silver glitter on it and its divine-oh and it cost $1.oo dollar-we could only do 1 op shop as nanna got very tired - so i said nanna i think its time for coffee and a little cake,, she just smiled and said yes id like that-after nanna went home i went out side to fairy cake pond- that's our name for our house and garden- i planted a purple passion flower-ooooohhhh- i cant wait for that to get flowers- I'm going to float them in bowls of water-oh yes i do love to decorate- it's really playing house. singing and skipping love Jo Anderson.

great deal for the lovely dress! I love that you have your nana over! mine lives way too far away and just turned 93!
The world you live in really is quite magical isnt it!

Donna O'Brien said...

I move eveything around, too, Jo. And early morning when eveyone is sleeping- the BEST time, I agree.
Love the dress with the silver glitter!

A silver glitter dress is the perfect outfit for a mannequin in your delightful home!

I loved the little portrait that you have - looks like a picture mounted onto cardboard - simple, but so unique.
Thanks for sharing,
