Australia Day, and Enough is enough!!

Happy Australia Day on the 26th January, for all the aussies out there! Some are enjoying a long weekend, and some of us have to work today, but tomorrow, we celebrate like there is no tomorrow!


And the saga continues! I have nearly completed the room swap, and will share the after photos soon....

My new office

Ryan's new room

So when is enough, enough?
 When do you draw the line at collecting, after 3? 10? Or maybe when you have filled a room and then some! Well as you know I have a few collections, (a few hundred to be honest), and I didnt include fabric. I wouldnt consider it to be a prized collection I would hold dear to my heart, but it has been confirmed as of today....Im seriously having to cull some of the 'not so favourite', which would be in a few of my 8 suitcases. I dont like to throw away any scraps leftover from projects, you never know when you might need them! But I managed to wittle down to 6 cases, phew!
Oh, and did I mention the cupboard full??
These vintage fabrics I adore, and love to have them where I can see them daily. I found this perfect 'oldie', and knew they would look gorgeous displayed in there.So I cleaned it up, removed the door and painted it to match the room.But somehow I got distracted and never fitted the shelves! I thought I might do it after the room-move, but couldnt resist filling it straight away! Mmm, hopefully I will get to them eventually!
Here they are for you to admire....
