What IS it??

Referring to my last post.. I'm thinking perhaps this bush is an elderberry??? Here's a couple more pics :)

On the go.... yet unfinished!

Does anyone know what this tree is? I love it!!! It's about 8ft tall, just beautiful.  anyway this blog isn't about trees is it!

Chest of Drawers made over the last few days, didn't like the handles that came in the kit (I can't seem to do them) so bought these.  the books on top I made aswell - far from perfect and need to be 'resized' which I'll do tomorrow when there is more light. 
Gotta hate power saving light bulbs :((
A tiny wallet, made out of a box from some aftershave that looked like leather.  LOL

Some painting.  The room is going to be the master bedroom.  No idea what kind of carpet will go in there yet!  The colours don't show 'as they are' due to it being dark, but you get the general idea yes? I don't have a steady hand.. it shows.. but I will perfect it in time :)

Two other rooms in painting progress.... boys room and girls room.

My choice of curtains for the master bedroom.  The bed is black. should look nice I hope!  I WILL finish painting the window!

Glad to have done a few things!!!!

A little bit of shopping..

Got to love the local hardware store.  I was looking around for anything useful (nothing in particular) and up in the back corner found a table covered in little pots of paint that looked like they were being discarded.. Sample pots!! Woohoo!! Only bought 4, but so useful, and now I know where they are I can always go back for more.  I just bought plain interior paint for now but wouldn't mind some of their other ones with special effects.. they were a bit more expensive.  Next shop!

Oh lol - got some mini tools from ebay too :) Check out the feather!!

Another project

Ebay is a very dangerous place! Not satisfied to only own one home.. and a smaller building not yet started.. had to go shopping.  Today I picked up a renovation job too.  I have firm plans for this home and can't wait to get started! Still.. I mustn't neglect the one already in progress and MUST get a start on the 'Lisa's cottage' project too!

Anyway here's my purchase!

I also went to a local op shop the other day - always drop in for a look for materials and nick nacks that could be useful and found a scarf that will be perfect for curtains for one of my rooms in the other house - $1!
