You know it is a good day when
1. Your Mum (who know a lot about roses) visits and helps in the garden.
2. There are vases of roses from your garden in the house
3. There are only 3 boxes in the house left to unpack
4. You find a perfect Figgjo coffee pot in the local vintage shop for a very good price.
4. We finally own a kitchen table and chairs.
5. And a perfect red spotty table cloth (a few metres of laminate from a shop in Albany - perfect to protect a table and just wipe it off when it is dirty).

Love the coffee pot! What a find! Your table looks lovely.

It must have been a good day, cause we moved last June and I still have more than three boxes to unpack!

Perfect indeed! Isn't it wonderful to have fresh flowers in the house, even better when they are your OWN fresh flowers. Great to see you are settling in. BTW we have been here for months and I still have about 15 boxes not unpacked! xox

The girls' look like they are having fun at the new table! I love your new furniture! We moved in Oct. and I haven't unpacked most of the boxes yet, except the ones to my sewing room! :)

Lovely coffee pot and roses. I inherited a complete Lottie (that's what we call it) dinnerset and loads of accessories (sauce jugs, casseroles, salad bowl etc) from my mother-in-law last year. Love it, love it, love it.

I grew up eating off that china, my mum still has it all! I feel so old when I see stuff like that as "vintage" :-)
