A Featherston in the Nursery....

Decorating the unit... have got a love obsession with the Light Blue Featherston
(I think I'm all about the replica from Matt Blatt.. call it budgeting issues for the real thing!)

Christmas 2011

Merry Christmas!!! :D

Christmas was a few days ago - the first in years I havn't boozed myself silly and ended up sleeping on LP's parent's spare bed by the early evening hours. Much the same with LPs!
We were both home after gorging ourselves at 5PM.

And of course, here's the 33 week belly.

I'm making the most of my smock dresses & Metalicus Cardigans!
Here's the Ginger and Smart dress I think I may have worn once before.
Also, my Saltwater sandals have become an absolute STAPLE.
Who knew a sandal could be SO comfy!?

I ended up only making one Gingerbread House this year... although I'd planned to make many more, my newly aquired sweet-tooth meant that I ate the bowl of "building materials"
(ie, the lollies!)

In the last couple of days, we've started the packing process.
Here's Nick packing up in his Music Nook ...

Awww... it is sad!

I'm also starting to ebay some things I've never worn today.
I just listed this Sass and Bide Jacket on ebay... it sold within 15 mins!?
My goodness there's some keen S&B fans out there!

Oh, and here's my other Christmas outfit I wore to my mum's for Christmas eve...
A new Fleur Wood Maxi, with the Metalicus cardi.
I have been looking for a yellow cardi like this one since my last one fell to pieces... mind you they leave very little to the imagination, can't wait til i stop feeling so sloppy all over! (and fit neatly into my old bras!)

LinkIn completely unrelated news, I helped organise a Charity Auction at Leonard Joel last week for a shoot. One of the items was this beautiful Southwood Trading coffee table, in the "Flow Collection". I ended up throwing in a bid- and won! amazing! I never would have imagined.
It came with the full setting... how cute are the felt coasters!

It's a solid hardwood Tasmanian Ash, weighs a tonne,
and is lovely Danish Design-ery looking!

Obviously a centrepiece at the new house... :D

It's busy few months.

Back at 9 I've been working like crazy... long hours make a pregnancy fly by, I think!?

On one hand I feel like I've been preggo for a gazillion years, and on the other it seems just yesterday. Time's not dragging ... yet!

Cool clothes are no more, I have ballooned! My boobs are up two sizes.. my clothes are snug as a bug.. but still, I've managed to completely steer clear of Maternity clothes (thankgoodness for Zimmermann's smockish maxis).

Currently 32 weeks... just into my 8th month!

There's also a big change afoot- the photo is a hint - Nick and I are moving!

Bye bye "Hopetoun Grooves" ... we're off to live in the burbs for a bit!

We're moving here in January... the renovation has just started, so it will look like a whole new house shortly! I have started my interiors wishlist, and am getting excited to put it all into action!

New Bedroom
The soon to be baby's Nursery

The soon to be lounge room

The soon to be kitchen

The soon to be new bathroom!!

Nothing's started as yet in terms of packing (I feel a nightmare coming on!)
But I'll start this week... and then break (moreso to pack than for christmas!)
Then 7th Jan the moving truck comes!
Big new start!!! ...
