I’m on maternity leave!

It’s all pretty exciting at our house at the moment, Ava’s very excited about her ‘baby Brudder’ arriving soon (although we haven’t yet found out the gender…) and Heath and I are anxiously awaiting this pending little bundle of joy that’s most likely going to turn our life upside down and inside out!

In the meantime, I’ve decided it’s best to get busy doing all of the sewing I’ve been putting off till I had some time…which I’m sure you can tell by the amount of posts on here recently is NEVER!

…Diy Stencilled Wall

During our renovation, I was lucky enough to have my own custom made dressing table nook built into our bedroom. Very fancy!
I received a beautiful dressing table from my husband for my 30th birthday. I’ve been holding off setting it up though because I wanted to pretty-up the wall first! I have been on the lookout for wallpaper for awhile now but I just couldn’t find the right one…then I considered stencilling.
