Home love

Today was my first day at home without the peeps, or any meetings or work commitments since the school holidays started almost four weeks ago.  It was heavenly.  And while spending the day reclining on the sofa was tempting, the house really needed some lovin'.  Especially the peeps room.   Check out the before shot. Yikes! It all started going horribly wrong three days ago when they turned their room into a shop.  It never quite recovered. I'm sure A Current Affair were on their way to do a story on the family living in such a mess.






It will be a pleasure to tuck them in tonight without risking a sprained ankle or a bruised shin.  Fingers crossed it will stay that way until bed time.

  1. Such a sweet room.
    It's so refreshing to see a messy shot, we all need some reality every now & then. My son is 14 months & still manages such a mess.
    I've pinned it onto my pinterest to file it away for inspiration.
    Have a great week.

  2. Wow, I just discovered your blog (by blog hopping I call it). My family and I recently moved to Geeveston and I am very excited to hear and read about the foodies and bloggers in the area. We've just started our veggie patch, have a few brahma chooks and I make a lot of chutney and slices! Moving from Brisbane it's a change in pace and lifestyle. We were in the outer suburbs and used to have chooks so I'm loving having chooks again.
    Anyway, I rant on. So excited to have found your blog. Hopefully I'll get up to the Hobart markets and try one of your lovely looking cupcakes :)

  3. It is such a beautiful room. I can relate very much to the before shot, though. It looks very much like my girls' room, or my loungeroom. Everyday... before I clean it. *sigh* Yes, there is a downside to home education ;)

  4. If only the rooms stayed this clean! We've opted for the one bedroom to sleep in and one bedroom to play in. Our brilliant scheme failed dismally. Now both rooms are messy and require constant attention. Seriously I have better things to do with my time!

  5. I first room could belong to the daughter that just finished her 1st year of college! She ended up with a messier(is that possible?) roommate and they get along very well by keeping their messes on their own side of the room!

  6. What a gorgeous room! I used to have a bed like that when I was younger and am so upset when I think that it probably went to the tip when we downsized to bunks :(

    I'm another mainlander that moved to Tassie last year and am loving all the blogs I'm finding by people around here. So much inspiration too!

  8. A real life childrens bedroom, so gorgeous to see. It looks lovely and comfortable, and actually lived in - very refreshing!

    May I ask where you acquired the middle basket on the bottom shelf of the play stand? I'm on a constant basket hunt for our space.

  9. Hi Allison - I bought the basket from Salamanca markets in Hobart - it's a favourite!
