The Chookshed Party, My Sunday


The news has been carrying some terrible images of the destruction & flooding happening over east in Australia at the moment... so the fact that my Sunday was simply a cold day is a blessing.

I think I made really good use of the day by continuing to put a few things into my new room, mainly books on the shelves. My big focus for the day was to keep going through my plethora of cross stitching magazines & take out only the projects that take my interest.
Turns out I had almost 150 magazines... yes I'd been buying them for a while... Well, I got on a roll flipping pages & tearing a few things out... box after box, mag after mag... my recycle bin is going to be heavy this week... And look what I've got left:
 Grandma Violet is a hoarder, so she is not impressed with my efforts!
They'll go into a file so they're easier to access.

This is the current state of my cube shelves... So far, the books & mags are going in the left side cubes... I have a nook for my coffees & cups... And you might just be able to see the Chook Family in their new home, with a couple of friends too...
 Methinks they'll be wanting some interior decorating!

My pressing/ironing board is ready to use now too... made the finishing touches on Sunday morning... sharing pics soon in case anyone is interested.

I've added a few decorator items too... a darling mini Maria sent me a few months ago & a card with some inspiring words on it...


Couldn't resist this candle... I'm not burning it yet, but the scent is great for diffusing the smell of fresh paint & flooring glue!


Considering I still had the usual domestic chores to do, (I think I have 17 kids, there was so much undies to hang!) I'm happy with my efforts over the weekend for the Chookshed Party... I've even found a couple of new blogs to read, thanks to the list over on Chooky's blog.
Thanks for hosting us once again Chooky... glad to see your own Shed was packed with fun, laughter, food & friends.

Today is our 'WA Day' public holiday... I'm going to keep the party going even though it's officially finished... yay!

Gosh you had a very productive weekend! Your new room is looking great, nice to see the chooks are settled in nicely :-) I've been going through my magazines lately and doing a good cull... feeling good as the rejects go to the SPCA for selling and fundraising! Love your ironing station too, it looks a decent size!

Well done, you havemade great progress. Magazines do take up loys of space so it is good to get them sorted. The chooks look right at home in their new home... very appropriate candle for you!
