BC Good Life Australia Day Wednesday


Sarah from a beach cottage is hosting a Beach Cottage Blog Hop called BC Good Life Wednesday
Today is  a special Day here in Australia -called Australia Day it commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788
Check the Link Australia Day to learn what it means to us Aussies

I am so loving the Table Runner in the photo below that I bought from Sarah of BC fame
I had such fun playing house with the runner
The furniture you see out on the deck as of Monday has been replaced
Maybe that can be my next weeks BC Good Life Wednesday post
I love nothing better than having the house to myself and 'playing house'

Old cutlery and napkins teamed well with these placemats 

Thanks Sarah I looove my new table runner

Hi there! Sarah knows what she's doing, doesn't she? That table runner is very very cute. Such a pretty tablescape! Some pretty shells, too. BTW keep bugging about those white sofas ;-) ...You will love them! Mine bring me joy every day!
