Its One thing building a house...

For some time now I have known I have to shift some clutter out of my house. Hoarding is one of my weak points; I get it from my Mum - bless her.

Speaking of Mum, It's her birthday today ... Happy Birthday Mum ~ you're not just a Mum you are my best friend mwah.

Clutter - being furniture that I don't have the room for. I worked almost all day on this yesterday; twas a workout!

They are gorgeous pieces but I don't have the room or the right space for them. My hubby's a minimalist so he will be stoked. Have started photographing it to sell at an 'on-seller' in Sydney, more to be photographed.

A discussion I remember having with my builder at one stage (big empty room stage) is that it is
ONE THING TO BUILD A HOUSE but
ANOTHER TO FURNISH A HOUSE.

So true.... Only few people can have everything at once. Even then; they are still aiming for something else or wanting what they haven't got. Human nature.

Maybe one day I can open a Furniture / China Op Shop. Know the perfect person to do it with ... The birthday girl herself ; )

Last Week - a Sparkle dare from FoxinFlats

You may or may not have heard about Fox in Flats. If you haven't, you can check it out at foxinflats.com.au Andrea dares whoever is keen to wear say hot pink lips for a week straight or wear vintage for a week and in last week's case a dare to sparkle for a week. If nothing at all, it's a great chance to go through your wardrobe and see what you have got and what you may need. We always 'need' something in that department especially at the start of a new season.

Foxinflats dares are a great diversion from your usual weekly routine and it only takes a few seconds to snap a picture or two for evidence if you want to join the banter. This was really my first time joining in a dare as such. Watching from the wings is fun too.

Going through my wardrobe initially I discovered quite a few of the sequin/sparkly options were a little too much on the 'black tie' side of things. Knowing straight away I wasn't going to do the school run in those sparkly numbers.

Setting those things aside... I ended up being able to 'play the game' quite well with the below items. One day I even put on the sparkly gold eyeliner, which I forgot I had purchased for a friends 40th!! Loved the #sparkledare and cudos to Foxinflats for instigating it!

Housework versus a fun photoshoot

Last Friday I could have comfortably spent the day - the whole day... doing house work. I also had an appointment with my niece - to take some pictures of her. It's no secret I love photography, and I was looking forward to our day together as much as she was.

I got up early and tried to get a few housey jobs done before I took the boys to school and before I picked up my niece.

We spent from 10.30 - 2.30 together. We achieved heaps during the short window of time we had to work with. We had a few laughs and covered a few different locations and a few outfits.

Have included a few of our shots and as you will see the weather was glorious!

Do you too get taken away from housework to do more fun things ?
