Brighten up your day

The colour of the main area of our house is such a dull colour and it is not helped by the large areas that are undercover around the house which means lack of natural light.  Actually the whole house when we moved in a year ago was a multitude of different colours and some half finished or my personal favourite - using exterior paint inside on cupboard doors and walls!  Not pretty and slowly but surely we have been making it more to our liking.  I have decided recently that flowers would really help on our table - they can provide that splash of colour and also beauty to gaze upon.  Yes for those that know me it is totally against what I normally say about flowers but I can now make an exception.  I do not buy anything 'flash' so to speak and it is less than $10 per week. 

For those of you that may be asking why not paint the walls...well you will be happy to know that we are but just waiting for a friend of our to get back to help get it done quickly.  Will I still buy the can one say no to the ones above!  haha!  Yes I think I have been converted! 

Maybe I will do a before and after post for the parts of the house that have been changed over the last year?  Hmmm will go and have a look into that!

Hope you are having a great weekend everyone!

I say definitely buy the flowers! Buy a few off brand food items and you will save enough for that bouquet, right? :-)
