I havent left the country

Im still here, i have been a very busy lil' chickadee lately.
Yay i am almost finished the dresser!!!! Just have to pop the fabric in the doors and put the handles on tonight..yippeee, so i will have some pretty pics for you tomorrow.
Also finishing up a pretty painting that i can show you piccies of tomorrow as well.
So today i thought i'd just show you a couple of pretties in my home.

I finally got one coat on the last section of yukky brick in the kitchen. Two more coats and my pretty tins will really jump out at you! Sorry the photos not great but they are kinda high up!

My Cupcake Bunting from my sweet friend Nikki @ ChiChiLaLa. Again another high up picture.It hangs on a section of wall that divides the 2 parts of the kitchen.

My gorgeous scrolly planter stand,(a perfect gift from my soon to be Sister In Law) that i put my fav magazines in (The middle one is the one my Faux Cuppies were featured in, hee hee). I love this stand so much.

Here you go Gail, i tried an angled photo too :) I hope mine doesnt cause an dizzy, tipping over feelings LOL.
This is a timber tray that Shanes Grandad made before he passed away. It was intended to be a fold up chalk board for Sam but i decided rather than have it trashed or put away after Sam lost interest in it, id paint it and use it in our home where we can see it always and remember him. As you can see it displays some of my pretties in the kitchen area. This way he is always with us.

I will leave you with some sweet cuppies ..... Sam and i made these to take to my sisters house last sunday for Fathers Day...YUMMY YUMMY. There was sooo many, this is only half of them! I tell you i am SOOOO over cupcakes now! LOL

Just a quick mention...Shane is off to have his check up Catt Scan on Wednesday afternoon. Basically just to make sure that those nasty lymph nodes are behaving themselves now etc etc, so any well wishes would be much appreciated and will fill our hearts, its always very nerve wracking waiting for the results....

Okies i am off now,
Luv you gals bunches and bunches, you have no idea.
Shann xo

It was not a yucky photo, you are paranoid. Love to my SIL, he will be fine. And yep, the cuppies were great.
