Here's one for you ladies ;)

Don't get me wrong, I love my romantic interiors but this is ridiculous lol.
This townhouse is for sale in Brisbane and has had around 17,000 hits on the realestate website.

76 yr old Joan Pool has spent the last 2 years decorating entirely with roses - artificial ones!

All I can say is poor hubby! lol

There is even a tea service in the ensuite

I also wanted to briefly make mention of a lovely Yum Cha brunch my family and I went to this morning to celebrate my sister Sarah's birthday. The kids and I had a great time, thank you sista! :)

First of all let me just say your son and daughter are simply gorgeous, like their Mum, thank you so much for sharing Anna. It does look like you had a fun time with your family by all the sweet smiles.
As for that house, I am absolutely speechless, words fail me, but if you had never posted it i would never have believed it to be so!!!
I wish you could have seen my face with each picture, my jaw dropped further and further :))
Hope you are having a spectacular weekend.
love j

Julia you crazy kid, thank you for your kind words :)

That house is mental isn't it? LOL

God bless Joans cotton socks though, she obviously loved her home and took pride in making it "pretty" LOL.

Anna you gorgeous thing you!!! i love Yum Cha on a Sunday - its the best!!!
now what about this house - did the REal Estate agent not sit the owner down and have a simple chat...haha what are they thinking? too funny!!

Are roses stuck all over the house really called 'decorating'!!!!! To me it looks like the rose garden got the flu..............

Anyway, you and your family are beautiful!!!!!!
Happy Sunday!

Lovely to see photos of you and your family Anna, I must say I was a little disappointed there were no roses on your table, non in your hair or around your neck!!

Good gracious, how on earth could you live there, the hubby looked quite happy considering, or maybe she just borrowed him for the photo. Thanks for making me smile!

Anastasia - apparently the owners wanted to take some of the roses down but the estate agent told them to leave it be! LOL

We went to the Phoenix restaurant at Rhodes. Have you ever been there? It was chockers. There was an hour wait cue out the door. Insane! Thank god we booked ahead.

Villa Anna said...

Gail - LOL thats almost enough to make you want to stop painting roses I'm sure.

Ok, my husband would have put his foot down after about three pink roses (and maybe long before that). Me oh my, that was something!


Happy day!
