Stills : A Weekly Collection {the varying degrees of cleanliness edition}



1. Fresh sheets, fresh spots and clean floors for the first time in weeks. Pip's room is almost restored to it's former glory.

2. A sure sign that I've completed my grocery shopping at Aldi - $5 roses. I lashed out and bought two bunches.

3. Underfoot.

4. Afternoon light in the living room. Filthy fly screens and washing to be folded.

5. Bubbles.

6. Just the regular gathering of peas, corn and pasta under the table.

7. A lovely gift in the post from Uberkate.

8. Zeph's room got the full overhaul too. It's such a nice space when it's clean, as rare as it is.

I hope you've had a relaxing weekend :)

  3. Pip's room is just perfection, love, love, love the yellow and aqua! We are thinking of updating our little girls room and I am desperate to steer her away from pink - might have to show her this!

  5. Yep, peas and corn on floor here and I love me some Aldi roses too. I bought two bunches of white ones too yesterday and they're adorning the table as I type!! Lovely images and have a lovely week!

  7. There is something about a clean, tidy fresh room that just makes you feel as though you are walking a bit taller, isn't there? We've just done the same with a few rooms here (it goes SO much quicker with the hubs on hand - it seems to take less than half the time... maybe that's because I'm not JUST keeping up with the mess the kids make, but getting ahead of them?). Enjoy the fresh spaces... however long they last! ;) (Which would be about 20 mins here...).

  8. Those polka dot decals are fab, cherries in bubbly is such a great idea and I love a Moroccan footstool in any bright colour ... Pip's room is so gorgeous! Tina
