theme thursday : things around my house.

life has been busy and i didn’t really get the time to prepare a well thought out themed thursday. so, instead i am sharing pictures from my home of items that mean something to us.

when my mummo (grandmother) passed away a few years ago my mum gave me this cup and saucer set. sometimes, i like to drink my afternoon coffee from it and remember her.
we once found a dead grasshopper in our backyard. 

our kids eat their snacks from old wooden salad bowls.

these are birthday bunting flags from lion’s second birthday party.

some greenery.

thanks for stopping by!
happy thursday everyone!

xo, mama lola

    I like that you use the cup. I have my grandma’s old sewing machine. I can’t bring myself to open it up, but I have it, and I”m glad I do. 🙂

    I’m visiting today from Linkin’ with my Ladies. 🙂

    Hiya sweets! Miss seeing you on Twitter — I’ve not been tweeting much this week due toa sinus infection.

    Love the photos here! Your photography skills are wow! New hobby?

    Speaking of photos, I am finding that uploading them is changing the quality of the picture. It looks rather noisy after I’ve edited them in LR3 and then uploaded them into Blogger. Any suggestions?

      hope you feel better soon, mandi. sinus infections and brutal!!

      as for the pics, i’m not sure. i upload mine via flickr, instead of directly from blogger. i know that’s not very helpful, good luck!
