I’ve found my Easter craft project! 

I had been thinking for about 2 weeks now, about how I’ll bring in some Easter mood to The Pad, and I chanced upon some gorgeous yarn wreaths on Etsy!  I adore them and can’t wait to have a go at creating my own Easter yarn wreath.

Here are some which really inspired me.  Aren’t they pretty? =)

We’ve finally moved into The Pad and with half of our stuff moved in and the kitchen fully functional, its time to get me an apron. 

Can’t find anything in the shops and so of course, I’ve turned to Etsy and shortlisted the final 2 from Boojiboo.  Here’s where I need your help.  I’ve wavered back and forth so many times between the 2 that now I’m really thoroughly confused – I don’t know with which the apron love lies anymore! 

So please vote and let me know which I should get!  HELP me please!

Remember this picture?  It is the inspiration for The Pad’s kitchen.

We went tile selecting last Friday, and I found the perfect blue I wanted for the kitchen backsplash.  Although it was over the budget allocated by our designer, we’re lucky that it is only a small area and the tiles are much larger in size than the brick-sized ones as shown in the picture, so the additional amount that we need to top up isn’t very much.

Here are the tiles we selected on Friday:

kitchen backsplash and floor tiles

living room tiles - we can't decide which yet

master bathroom tiles - loving the earthy shade

this is it

These pictures from Lucy Interior Design‘s portfolio is exactly the feel/style and color that we want for The Pad – although of course, since we don’t have the same luxurious space, I really don’t know how its going to turn out.

I can’t wait for the renovations to start!
