Summer styling II

Last year I wrote a post called Summer Styling that featured beautiful photos of the way my mum and I decorated our holiday house. This year we’ve done it again, a little differently though.We love entertaining visitors throughout Summer. Our 3 meter Jardan dining table is one of my absolute favourite pieces of furniture in our home. We had so many fun and crazy dinner parties around it! It’s a pity it’s been covered up with a table cloth in this photo, but click here if you’d like to see it naked 😉

Scented pink garden roses locally grown in Main Ridge. They smell and look unreal!

There’s a bit of an animal theme going on in our home.. A bit? I mean a lot! These bunnies keep multiplying! Mum, please stop collecting bunnies! We’re also obsessed with Flinders Farm tomatoes. You can see we buy them on mass!

I love cooking while I’m here. There’s always a babysitter around to watch little miss Cherry so there’s plenty of time to indulge in some creativity in the kitchen!

Happy new year to everyone! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous holiday break and are enjoying the glorious sunny weather. Cherry and me, and the family are staying up at our holiday house down by the seaside. We even brought our pussy cat Meinekki with us. My computer and camera are all set up for some January blogging, so stay tuned for weekly posts!
