My photo depicting soft is of Ballerinas bed spread and pillows. They are like feathers - beautiful to lay on. The sort of soft that you like to rub against your face and it feels really, well, soft and luxurious.
Happy weekend to you all!

Below is the frame - it is beginning to look like a house now.
As of today the gutters are around the roof. The insulation wrap is around the house and the windows are in place.
Looking from the front of the house - our bedroom has French doors (although I am querying the contract, because I thought we had organised for the glass to be spotswood not clear). The 2 windows on the left are in the study.
Looking from the block next door over the pool into one bedroom (left), family room (centre) and dining room (right).
Looking from the Family room out to the pergola area (under main roof) and out to the pool.
So it is finally coming together, although it will still be a couple of months before we can move in. Hopefully the roof will go on by the end of the week and then it will be bricked up.
Have a great week.

Nito (hubby) bought these Japanese pictures through a deceased estate a few years back in Kuranda. The actual pictures date back to the early 1900's and are made of Mother of Pearl. There is an order and story with the 4 pictures, but unfortunately we are not aware of it.
It is slightly difficult to see, but there are 2 people in the picture - to me it is either husband and wife, or father and daughter.
We do not have them hanging at the moment, but in our new home they will be up on the walls!!

Flowers, potatoes, pumpkin, watermelon, onions, corn, lettuce, apples - granny smith and delicious, bananas, mangoes and the lovely cakes.
The colours are great (not done justice in the photos) and the aromas are beautiful. We were a bit smarter this time and took a couple of shopping bags with us, but I think I will invest in one of those pull along trolleys as it got quite heavy quite quickly.
Enjoy your week - we will!

This weeks theme is gross - many defintions and interpretations of gross, but this is mine:
Dirty dishes in the sink!!
Yes there were plenty of gross things I saw this week, but did I want to take a photo and display it to you all - no. So this is about the grossest (is that a word?) thing in my life - which I'm grateful for.
Enjoy your weekend!
