Old house.
109 years and counting.
Stone walls, wood eaves, floating floors, open-plan living and dining, two large bedrooms, large yard, tin roof and bull-nose verandah.
First home.
So many hopes and expectations for the future.
So much to plan and prepare for: renovations, restorations, new paint, new drapes, new carpets, fruit orchard, vegie patch, wood heating, cooling...
Quiet street.
No next-door neighbours.
Adventurous puppy constantly entertained.
A good start.


  1. Nice! Looks like there’s plenty of potentials in that backyard of yours. With spring approaching here that’s all I can think of. Bailey is such a cutie :)

  2. Hi.. your mum and I are so proud of our daughters each restoring old homes. My daughters blog is Kookaburra Cottage if you feel like having a look. I love your blog. Your mosaic is wonderful Marilyn from NSW.

  3. I love the way you put that together.

  4. Stop on over... I have a Blog award for you !!
