Home sweet home

With all the beautiful weather we've been having lately I've been taking some pics around the garden. The resident possum is collecting leaves for her house - maybe in preparation for a new arrival?
Hubby is the mosaic expert and has a great eye for using re-purposing junk. We have a few of these "houses" around the garden and it's been a really good year for camellias in the mountains. The chair we found on the roadside - it's a bit "french bistro".
A few years ago our house was often used as the location for photo-shoots for several well-known Australian patchwork magazines . The friendly guys and girls would come with lots of magazine projects and set up vignettes around the house using their props and whatever was suitable amongst our things. It was fun to watch the process and a real thrill to see our rooms as the backdrops for beautiful photos when the mags eventually hit the street. They've since moved on to newer and less-seen locations.
