April first.

Well, tonight is the first evening of April. I'm sitting in my kitchen with a glass of red listening to the various sounds of my household.....The Tigers vs Rabbitohs game on the T.V, my girls squealing with delight as they play with a huge box and dinner bubbling away on the stove. We've been super busy so it's nice to have a sunday evening just relaxing.

Today I want to show you a recent purchase of mine. It's a vintage school map and it is HUGE. My beautiful mother-in-law saw it at our local child flight store and was looking at keeping it herself, however she had nowhere to hang it as their house is dome shaped. So it was shown to me and i just love it. I know how much these are worth now and even after telling them how much they can sell for, they gave it to me at an extraordinarily low price. It is slightly damaged but I kind of like that. Here it is hanging in our hallway. I couldn't get all of it in frame as it is so long (over 2 metres). I'm keeping it here until we renovate our back room where it will take pride of place.

I've been sourcing quite a few tidbits for our impending renovations. I forgot how exciting it was to sift through junkyards and garage sales for bargains. Why just a few weeks ago i got 2 industrial lampshades for $5 bucks each! Love it!!

Well, our dinner is cooked and I'm up for an early night. My fingers are sore after an incident with my hot glue gun (it's been all about Easter Hat making today) So I'm off to put another potato on my burn and eat my pasta. I hope you all had a lovely weekend too :)

Oh lovely, that sounds painful, hope your little finger is alright. Loving the map, that is seriously retro cool, I'm sure they used to have one of those in my primary school. And I don't dare mention that Tigers vs Rabbitohs game around here this evening, hubby is the ultimate West Tigers fan and was at the game, ouch!
Hope you have a lovely week hun xo
