Something out of character

Anyone who knows me well would know that I have a strong dislike for the colour yellow! I find it the hardest colour to work with and I avoid using it in my designs when ever possible!

Then along came this great big clock!

Check out the size of it!

Something about it just struck me as exactly what we needed to add to the nursery! I guess it's like a great big sun brightening up the room! We found it at the wonderful Mill Markets on a recent trip to Daylesford.

It's a lovely feature on such a large wall. I still need to get some shelving for the other end of this wall. I am thinking box shelves above this chair area.

I have managed to get a few more things up on the walls, but I still have some fabulous prints to frame and set up. Oh, and of course there's still the curtains! I don't know what do about them, but I am thinking something simple as the room is already so busy! I also need to get the rest of the lanterns hung up, but I am loving how everything is coming together!

And here's the gorgeous girl herself, lounging about in the cushion that I made her.

Hasn't she grown!

Thank you for your comments on my blog, I have not been a very proactive blogger recently...
Look at your darling girl! jade. She is adorable. She has grown heaps!!
And that clock, I love it. I want one.
I was the same about yellow for so long, really didn't like it, but then a couple of years ago decided that it was a happiness colour and changed my mind... I now love it & use it all the time! take care xx
