My Mini Love Affair........

So.......anybody who knows me or has known me for a long time, knows that I have a bit of a love affair with America. Why?? I do not know. All I know is that at 5 I promptly told my Mum I was going to Disneyland & I was going to live in America & I was going to pay for it myself. At 17 I took off on a plane (I now understand Mum why you were crying & worried, please stop me from being a blubbering mess & please don't tell my girls what I did!!) to the big old US of A. As you know my bro is living there now with an incredible family. It is not like it is Paris or Italy where the buildings are centuries old (I do still really want to see all of that) and you are tasting & learning a new culture but I just really like it. I really dig their shops!!! Scrapping is cheaper, furniture is cheaper, clothes are cheaper!!! And I love my family & friends that we have over there, that I could hang out with them forever!!! If only we could take the beach with us??!! So although I am not a real material girl, this was kinda fun deciding how I would decorate our American house??!! ROFL......So without further ado this is what I am in love with over there........apart from my family & that deserves a post all of its own!!!

I would do the two younger girls with this....



and seeing I couldn't find anything with horses or ballet......this for Georgia



or this to remind her of home......we could bring our own surfboard!!



Our Room.....


the guest bedroom (well one of them, they have big kickass houses over there!!)



family room



Scrap Room (but would need a little more storage....nudge nudge wink wink)


the Kitchen the hub of the house, I would have to have a big island bench as the girls love talking to me while I cook.....plus I love cooking so I need a big one....I would change the chairs as I am not a big seagrass fan.....



Are you getting I kinda like timber and white??!! HOOHUH. And also some little delights from Anthropolgie & Abercrombie.









I could just go nuts in their stores, so much goodness!! They also have markets & vintage junking which I think I would love. Yes people the REAL Mel is here & here to stay!!! So that's the exciting post to share with you today. Will be back with some scrapping & photos soon........maybe.......... have been totally pushing paper around on my desk,unmotivated to scrap or sew, as have been on a cleaning spree!!
Happy Monday. Me xx
