I see you! Lots of rain so far this summer coupled with some high temps, I wasnโ€™t sure what this was going to mean for our tomato plants... But all seems well, theyโ€™re busy doing what they do. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ…๐ŸŒฑ #tomatoplants #vegiepatch #inmygarden #lotsofrain #thunderstorms #homegrowntomatoes #wontbelong

One thing I hate is cleaning my brushes, a bit slack in this department and generally use dishwashing liquid. This little pot of soap is now my go to, cleans, conditions and smells pretty good too. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿงผ #thesoapery #brushbristlesoap @wattlebirdcanberra #cleanbrushes #paintbrushes #divinesmell #brushessmellgreattoo #easyclean #nomoredryskin

A little while back I posted a blue mess, a finish gone wrong. Well, here is that same piece, almost finished. Seems to be evolving, I do something to it here and there in between other bits Iโ€™m painting. The Anaglypta wallpaper on top solved the problem of the damage I did to it and I painted it with a mix of paint and clear glaze. Iโ€™m now toying with the idea of using a bit of dark wax to age areas, and maybe a bit of worn, patchy gold leaf ... ๐Ÿค” #chalkpainted #chalkpainteddecor #vintage #vintagedecor #vintagestyle #oldwoodenbox #anaglyptawallpaper #savedtheday #stencil #clearglaze #revive #reuse #recycle #reduce #reuse #refinish #repurpose #upcycle #onemanstrashisanothermanstreasure #oldworldcharm #thingsilove #workinprogress #evolving

Quite in love with this big, framed, Martini and Rossi print that I found this morning...๐Ÿ–ค My husband is clearing out the garage and I accompanied him on a trip to the tip, he unloaded our junk while I found treasures in the tip shop (aka other peopleโ€™s junk) to reload into the car. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ #vintage #vintagestyle #vintagedecor #tipshop #treasure #onemanstrashisanothermanstreasure #martiniandrossi #advertisement #poster #framedprint #recycle #reduce #reuse #repurpose #renew #oldworldcharm #thingsilove #hesagoodman ๐Ÿ˜‰

The surviving baby magpie who is hilarious, full of gutsy attitude and always amusing us with its antics. I think it would be classified as spoilt rotten in the bird world, being an โ€˜only childโ€™ itโ€™s parents are super attentive and I have seen it throw a few tantrums when mum or dad donโ€™t feed it quick enough! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ–ค #babymagpie #tamemagpies #magpies #inmygarden #lovethesebirds #thisyearsbaby #amusing #dailyvisitors

One of my four shadows... Those of you that are Australian or from the UK, and old enough to remember, might agree with me when I say he is doing a very good Mrs Jessop impersonation... ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ Donโ€™t know whatโ€™s going on with that leg! ๐Ÿ˜ #myfurbaby #alwaysonthelookout #jugpuppiesofinstagram #jugdogs #pugxjr #bigsook #alsoimpersonateswalruses #mrsjessop #neighbours #stickybeak #australiantvseries

Itโ€™s been ages since I have found one of these old tray tables with hairpin legs. This one was covered in brown, green and yellow folk art, itโ€™s now looking a little more chilled in white chalk paint and a vintage print wallpaper. ๐Ÿ–ค #chalkpainted #chalkpainteddecor #chalkpaintedhomewares #vintage #retro #vintagestyle #vintagedecor #breakfastinbed #vintagetraytable #hairpinlegs #oldworldcharm #onemanstrashisanothermanstreasure #junkshopfind #revive #reuse #recycle #reduce #repurpose #refinish #renew #repair #thingsilove

Sort of an old wood effect, quite by accident, ๐Ÿ˜‚ on a big tin hamper with another paper transfer taking this from drab to fab. #chalkpainted #chalkpainteddecor #galvanisedtin #makingnewlookold #vintagestyle #woodeffect #papertransfer #imagetransfer #revive #reuse #recycle #repurpose #refinish #renew #drabtofab #newlook

So annoying when something doesnโ€™t go according to plan..๐Ÿ˜  Particularly when you might have had a little bit of a hissy fit and attacked it with a razor blade more than was really necessary and left some pretty deep gouges behind, tsk,tsk. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ #chalkpainted #chalkpaintedfailure #nothappy #wasteoftime #willfixittomorrow #losttheplot

Another chair that couldnโ€™t be sat on anymore repurposed for use as a mini garden. A few reinforcement plates screwed in, lots of hemp oil, which has changed its colour completely, and a planter bowl fitted and itโ€™s ready for a whole new life. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒฟ #brokenchair #repurosedchair #bentwoodchair #minigarden #chairplanter #planter #artisanhempoil #revive #reuse #recycle #reduce #repurpose #refinish #upcycle #repair #junkshopchair #onemanstrashisanothermanstreasure

Up early this morning and in the surf by 9am. ๐ŸŒŠ Gloriously hot summers morning (which topped 32 degrees) spent at a beautiful spot on the coast with my other half and our dogs. โ˜€๏ธ ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿฉ ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ‘ซ #sunday #atthebeach #tomakin #tomagariver #mossypoint #firstswimthissummer #quickdaytrip #swimmingwiththedogs #summer #summertime #funinthesun #turquoisewater #crystalclear #ilovesummer ๐Ÿ’›
