happy australia day!

happy australia day folks!
hope you've all had a fabulous day, celebrating however you do!
i do generally like to get my party on on australia day but considering how much partying i did on the weekend just gone, i thought i'd have a quiet australia day this year.
after a bit of a lie in, i jumped in the car and got a few supplies from bunnings and then spent my afternoon in the garden.
i got all the garden beds weeded and re-mulched and re-trained some of my vines, more about that tomorrow though...

when i was all gardened out, i got my revamp on!

take one beat-up set of outdoor furniture, rusty and pathetic looking.

add several cans of black spray paint...

and voila! brand new outdoor setting!

now i just need to get rid of some of that vine that is taking up almost the entire footpath and then maybe i can actually use it!

now i'm watching the tennis and trying to nut out how to crochet onto this lampshade. it'll definitely take some thinking about... not only on the how-to front but also how i want it to look and how i want the light to shine through it. hmmmm decisions, decisions.

what have you been up to today?
