Trial and Error and then Revelation

Here I sitting upstairs at Lily G on a gorgeous sunny Weekend trying to master my new little Mac book Pro. I must say I am very impressed so far. Even though I have been in possession of this little lovely for I would say about 5 months now, I have been procrastinating and putting off trying to master it's new technology. I'm not technically sound  by any means and that sometimes puts a big handbrake on the level of blogging and the ease in which I can produce anything (I think) blog worthy.

But Woo Hoo!!!! I think I have found a computer that thinks like me....Simply!!! ha ha

I am on training wheels at the moment but I have hired a lovely man to come and give me remedial lessons once a week. It is progressing at very soft pace and I think he has extraordinary patience considering my inability to retain any sort of information at the end of a long day of consults.

Well I feel like I am learning something new which is apparently helpful in staving off the short term memory loss-itus that I'm convinced I suffer from!!!

I am in the store all weekend with my tireless worker bees installing xmas and re-jigging the store. I feel a sale coming on because Oops!!! I have been shopping for the store again and my store runnith over....

I am doing a lovely little job for the most delightful client. It is always a joy to meet all the wonderful people that come into Lily G daily, but this client has made the whole experience that much more lovely by her positiveness and her warm heart.
So Thank you Cathy and I'm still looking for something to "Butch" up that verandah corner :)

Here is my lovely client Cathy enjoying her new (refurbished) verandah furniture.


Cathy lives in a gorgeous Queenslander in Coorpooroo. The house needed a cohesive
 happy makeover to compliment the stunning gardens that were visible from the French Doors. I chose green and white because that's always so fresh and relaxing. Cathy is a nurse so needed a tranquil sanctuary to come home to and turn off. 


Cathy also had some well worn cane furniture from many moons ago which retained its lovely shape but the finish and fabric had to go. It got a new paint job and a lovely fresh fabric and all is well with the world!!
Before our Refurb


This corner needed some happiness
