WARNING !!! One Heck Of a Long Post :)

Got a cuppa? All settled in your comfy chair? Rightio then....

Today i have been a Sneaky and busy lil' bee.
My brother in law and his wife arrive home today from their Homeymoon in New Zealand. Now this is a couple that will do absolutely anything for you (and have done for us)they are kind, sweet and loving in the warmest, most sincere way. Nothing is ever a hassle for them. Oh and did i mention that they are sooooo Blissfully in Love it's sickening? LOL !!!
Well Craig and Sarah were married in New Zealand and since i wasnt able to go i wanted to do something sweet for the Newleyweds upon their return to Reality!

So, with my trusty assistant (Sam) in tow, we headed up to their house this morning and decorated their bedroom with silvery blue and white balloons, blue streamers (their wedding colours) and rose petals on the bed. I also made a Welome Home Mr and Mrs Thompson sign for their bedroom door, some really funny and cheeky 'Gift Vouchers' for them and printed a copy of one of the wedding photos and placed it in a frame decorated with Mica Flakes.
I hope they get a surprise when they walk in the room. I just wanted them to know how much they both mean to me :)
Guys, if you are reading this I LOVE YOU BOTH BUNCHES !!!

The sign i made welcoming them both home.I decorated Sarah's dress,veil and roses with pearl glitter.

Snap shot of part of the bedroom.

Mica Frame with wedding photo in Sepia tones.

On another note.....On Saturday i went Junkin with mum at the local St Vinnies Sale Day. Mum went home with half the store while i managed a few good bargains.
First up was this GORGEOUS blue lidded jar. When i saw it i immediately loved it!

Hey Siobhan dont you love the colour! I filled it with my paper roses.
This next pic is my little blue section of my front room. On the wall is my new and GORGEOUS Tussie Mussie from Julles, and a painting i bought from Alicia about 18 months ago, i adore it, she is beyond talented.


I picked up this huge old hinged desk box at the sale too. Not sure if it's a 'Paint it and Sell it' OR a 'Paint it and Keep it' !

Oh and lookie here, seems that Buzz Lightyear has taken up residence inside! Is that a sign that i am meant to keep it???

Some little pretties i picked up at the sale.

And this awesome cupboard that i havent decided what to do with just yet.....in the mean time at least i am safe in the knowledge that it is being guarded by my ever faithful Watch-Cat George.


Well i hope thats it.....i think thats it......yep thats it.
For now!

OOhhh we are getting SOOO EXCITED about Halloween!!! ONLY 2 MORE SLEEPS!!!
YAY !!!

Make sure you pop back on Thursday for some of our Halloween photos!

HUGS
Shann xo
