Blue Chandeliers

Well I have had some good news and bad news with the moving house situation.
The bad news is that the guy who was interested in buying it is not going ahead.
The good news is that we got the amount we wanted from the bank we wanted. I was a bit concerned as the banks aren't lending as much as they used to.
I listed our place on ebay today. If that doesn't work I am going to try Domain. I will be damned if I am going to give a real estate agent $8000 for selling this place.

I found the most gorgeous place today, in our price range too! The kitchen above has the exact shade of blue I want for my new kitchen. What I am hankering for is a blue chandelier to hang over the kitchen sink!

And I would LOVE this blue fridge and dishwasher but they are American and not available here. A pink "Smeg" fridge is still my all time dream fridge!

A selection of blue chandeliers. I think the first one is closest to what I want. The others are lovely but a little ornate for a kitchen.

And I must, MUST, have open shelves to display all my china and vintage kitchenalia. I just adore the scrolly shelf brackets on these. And love how this has been kept to a limited colour palette. Way more effective and eye catching.

We have a guy who is interested in buying our house. We are all sorting out our finance now. I can tell you one thing, the banks are definitely not lending as much. I have been shocked with the amounts I have been quoted. Some are 40 percent less than what they would lend us a year ago! Nothing has changed with our financial situation, we are actually earning more. Hopefully we can get the amount we need!
I have been trusting in a higher power that things will go our way so I have been tossing out heaps of stuff!

The local thrift shops have done well out of me!
Some things I have sold on ebay. The first four images are what I will be listing soon.

I bought this cupcake sign off Jenny recently. Just love her stuff but the exchange rate and postage make her pictures very expensive for me! Jon would die if he knew how much this cost (I will keep that a secret until my death!).

I bought these tea towels from Target. The word didn't make sense to me on the cow tea towel. When I translated it, it actually means "The Slag"! I think this would be the perfect passive aggressive gift for a bovine mother-in-law!

My hubbs, Jon. created this using picnik, my absolute fave photo editing tool.

This is another classic war time slogan. This print is from etsy.

I have decided that I want a blue front door in my next place!

Chair I bought from work. I use it at my computer desk, it is super comfy!
