Busy cleaning for guilt free Play Time

Today I have been rushing around, moving furniture at the WAC, at the Garden home and cleaning stuff and cleaning stuff...but I have an ulterior motive. Tomorrow I am going to play with some very lovely bloggy people...AND I CAN'T WAIT !!! ( I have probably jinxed myself now and someone or some child etc will be sick...don't even think that Katherine aargh!!!) So below are some photos of what I have been cleaning.
This is an amazing old turf roller from the turn of the last century. Yes that is one solid bit of tree. It weighs a tone. But is really a unique find...I think it is great.

Fabulous mid century patio chairs...very groovy and surprisingly comfortable.

This side table I grabbed to clean stupidly thinking...this one will be an easy quick clean....silly girl.
I discovered it needed a little clamp.
And it needed all this stuff to get the blasted thing clean.
But I do like the Asian influence on it's corner. I am a very lucky blogger though because the nature of what I do means I get to meet so many lovely bloggers, and lurking readers. Like Linda, a very savvy WAC shopper and blog reader I bumped into again today at the WAC... hi Linda. Oh and the other day I met Little Miss Air Gap...who is just as groovy as you would all think. And while I am unashamably name dropping away, look where I went the other weekend. You probably already know because I am the slackest one of the crew that lunched and they have all done fabulous blog posts.
We sat and chatted....and chatted and chatted here.
Ate and drank our fill of the yummiest food here.
This one...well what can I say, so beautiful and so talented and so generous....
Someone else rocked up in this groover....Have you guessed where I went yet ?
Yes it was the home of the beautiful, sweet and talented Pammie of Bayside Rose and we were joined by Linda of I see the Bridge, Mrs Tiff and Simone of Beach Vintage. Thanks Linda for taking these fab photos that I have copied...I told you I would pinch some ha.
SO onto tomorrow....where are we going ? Well this place will be on the list of must visits.

  1. What excitement! Aren't bloggers s fun bunch. I hope you have a great time.
    I'm loving the lawn roller thingy. We were just saying the other day how we need one :)

  2. You can come around here and restore a couple of things I've got on the to-do list! Work, work, work Katherine. I hope your day of play doesn't get jinxed. xx

  3. Can I spoil the secret yet? And yes I'm up at this ungodly hour. Would like to say it is because I can't sleep for the excitement but it is really because there is a fat guide dog hogging my side of the bed.

  4. Guilt-free playtime?? Ha, what's that?! Those cleaning supplies are only too familiar, although I've been busy with so much other stuff that I've even grown fingernails-can you imagine that?? P.s. finally got a diagnosis for VB this week, autism, which is not good but good, if you know what I mean, at least we can get her the help and therapy she needs now.xx.

  5. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

    a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
