About Me

My photo
Southern Highlands, NSW
Welcome to my world. I am a young Shi Tzu puppy who lives in considerable comfort at Lynwood Farm with THEM. I’m fascinated by the way people live - in the rooms they build, the gardens they plant, the treasures they collect and the comfort they create. THEY give me the complete run of the house, so I will be able to show you lots of pictures of life at Lynwood.

cripes ! stripes !

SHE decided the sun room needed a freshen-up. The ferns had to go, the green checked floor ditto.

HE had been asking for stripes on a wall - but has now got stripes on the floor.

This was a walk in the park for the trusty Rob Buckle (0248851684) - he who has painted everything at Lynwood. 

Started Thursday, finished Friday - magic ! 

The Old Rose Colefax has a new lease of life. The twig side table came from the attic, and SHE plans to paint it tomorrow (probably a creamy white, what do you think ?)
Notice the tray of shells & coral in the corner - this is HER channelling Reggie, one of HER faves.

I simply can't believe there are roses from the garden in the middle of winter !

The trusty Rob Buckle.


  1. FABULOUS!!! Says Bumble's cousin :)

  2. Very pretty indeed, and the colour picks up the C&F brilliantly.

    1. Absolutely and we still love 'Old Rose' its a classic.

  3. Oh, I LOVE this floor. I'd love to do this in our house but fear my partner wouldn't let me paint over polished floorboards. The grey is a perfect Dior grey too. And the table is gorgeous.

    There are roses growing in our neighbour's garden too. And I've seen a lot in other gardens/ Perhaps we're having a mild winter throughout Australia?

    Rob looks like a lovely painter.

  4. We know you like stripes Janelle, try and talk him into painting the floor it can always be sanded off at a later stage.
    Yes Rob is a great painter and an absolute dear.
