Getting Comfortable

We have been busy here at the villa, making ourselves comfortable.  We have installed some roman blinds to various windows and french doors .... all looking really good!  We're awaiting a fence to be put up out the front, to keep Jess the border collie safe and sound.  I'm trying to be patient, although the fence is taking forever!  We found a new rug - deep red!  ... then added a couple of jewel red and orange cushions... and now we have a warm, rich and inviting living room.

Our quest to get our garage liveable is ongoing and there are still a couple of things to move on, before we can put a car in there....  And we have bought a new one!  A shiny, silver Hyundai i20 hatch, eco car of the year in 2010, NRMA small car of the year 2011!  It will be delivered in a couple of weeks, and we're very excited! It's been more than 20 years since we've had a brand new car and I feel very spoiled!

The above trees were made with oil pastels in my journal.


  1. Woo Hoo Patti, sounds great. We used to have a Hyundai Sonata abd it was an excellent car, although not new. The new decor sounds great, I hope you have one of your pictures up in there too :)

  2. Oh, red rugs and pillows must be lovely !
    Congrats on the new car and on making your new house a cozy home.
    Hugs !
