Excuse me while I strangle Blogger.... Okay, back to where we were.



This is my living room. The quilts I made myself. The paintings I made also. That's about where my creativeness ends. This is one of the few almost clean area of my home right now. Behind me looks like a tornado just passed through.

The kitchen in all it's glory. Under the blue tea towel is homemade bread (probably blue also, as I made it about a week ago and nothing lasts long in the tropics). Also visible are several bottles of wine at various stages of depletion. And dishes in the draining rack (putting them away just means taking them out again later...). What you see here is the sum of my counter space. I do live in a unit...

Last picture. I couldn't choose, but this one came out alright. And hopefully it will taste more than alright in a few weeks. It's my first tomato of the season. Yum, yum.

Lovely house. I have trouble with my plants too, I never water them enough or too much I don't know. Thanks for sharing!

Hi, I was touring the houses and had to comment, because I rarely see a Queenslander in blogland. I live in Brisbane, but met my husband at JCU quite a few years ago now.

It's nice to see your home and I was surprised to see a tomato because I thought it was winter for you over there...apparently I was wrong and should have known because you have, in previous posts, been hanging out at the beach and water parks.

Now that I've recovered my memory....thanks for the lovely tour of your home and enjoy your tomato when it ripens.

iron? At least your ironing board shows you actually do iron. I just choose the least wrinkled thing available! :) Thanks for the tour!

This is so cool that we get to see homes from all over the world! Thanks for letting us tour! I love it that you're so creative and that shows all over your home - right down to the tomato on the vine!

I wish I were a quilter, a baker, a painter. Oh well, maybe when I grow up!

Loved your tour! Your 'mater looks like it is doing well...I might have to fight off the urge to have some fried green tomatoes for dinner!

Tomatoes that size now???!! Melbourne gardeners would kill for such an event. I enjoyed your photo of your blogspace, especially the description of all the things NOT in picture. If you ever want to get rid of that blue lamp on your desk, I know of a good home for it...

Thanks for the tour-a home isn't a home unless it looks lived in-a rule I follow. : )

Thanks for letting us see your home, but tomato really made me homesick for a garden. I think next year I will have to have a potted tomato plant.

I took a quilting class and have yet to finish my daughters baby quilt. She's 4 1/2 now! Thanks for the tour.

You have a nice home. We seem to have a few things in comon. I quilt and paint, and also used to grow tomatoes, but had to settle for a patch of green beans this year because of back trouble.
Thanks for the visit.

I miss brick houses! Love your white brick wall and front door. I'll enjoy picturing you in your airy little unit now Tanya. It reflects your laid back personality and shows your creativity. It's lovely! Like Sue, I love your sense of humour :)
Thanks for the tour!

So fun to visit people who live in other countries. Your home is lovely. And I posted a recipe yesterday for the perfect thing to do with that beautiful green tomato. Thank you for letting me drop in.

Bread? Did you say homemade bread? Oooo... Ummm, is that the doorbell? Don't you have to leave the kitchen for a second to answer it? I'll protect that bread for you at all cost...

Thanks for sharing your place with us.
