giving a room a new feel

We re-arranged the lounge furniture this afternoon, I love changing around furniture it gives the room a whole new feel! Isla ia wearing her flower girl dress (which still fits from a year ago!) It's my favourite dress ever, love the vintage lace cap on the sleeve. 

Two of my most loved pictures, the bird is a op-shop find and the lady is a post card from france (by the artist Mucha.)

The striped blue and white chair is my first ever attempt to reupholster, it was my $18 score from the red cross but desperately needed a lift! So I took it home, ripped off the old material and took to it with new fabric, scissors and my staple gun!

My latest venture, taking wedding photo's

Wow what a busy few months! Sorry for the lack of blogging, I was doing lots of sewing before Christmas for all the markets (which went really well, fantastic to see locals supporting locally made!) Then of course Christmas day, our seven year wedding anniversary, Neal birthday, mine and Isla's birthdays and at least ten other kids and family's party over the last two months! 

Photography is a hobby, I haven't done any training, I've been teaching myself (through watching 'you tube', it's an amazing way to learn manual settings!) During January I took photo's for my first wedding! I have to say I was a little nervous before hand but very excited at the same time! It's a lot of responsibility doing wedding photo's, no do overs! It was such a beautiful wedding, lovely to share the day and create lasting memory's for a friend!

Just a quick question, do you pay to blog??? Last time I tryed to post it said I had no memory space left and I would get charged, so I've gone through and deleted some posts to make room. Is this normal?
