Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:Anything Painted, from a cabinet to peeling paint.

Paint jobs

It’s not hard to find painted stuff around the home. Here are a few new photos I took and a couple of not so new ones.

Naomi recently painted thes cabinets in our downstairs kitchen. Last week I was looking high and low for the new knobs she bought to put on them so I could photograph them for a challenge but couldn’t find them anywhere. So here are the cabinets with the old knobs.

This photo brings back memories. It was from when I started painting inside my house although this is one of the rooms I had the painter do as the ceiling was too high for me.

Here is a wooden tray that Naomi made for me many years ago when she was experimenting with decoupage.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
