Now and Before πŸ–€ Our little 70s house looks so different these days that so many friends who have come to visit drive straight past πŸš—πŸ˜‚ Swipe to see the before... it's definitely looking less yellow and a lot less 'Crap Shack' - this is the best-looking before photo by a long shot πŸ˜‚ Our @scyonwalls cladding makeover was finished long ago (thanks @tjp_carpentry ☺️) but Mr Nerd and I ended up kinda seizing the opportunity to do all the things we'd been wanting to do to the outside for ages (like new gutters, double carport, new retaining wall...). You know what renovating's like - one thing leads to another (in a good way). We're still not 100 percent finished but we absolutely freaking love the change - and in the meantime I've shared a blog post with a ton of "before and nows" and answered a lot of questions I've been getting about the cladding 😊 link in profile 🏚️🏠

My birthday (yesterday) really crept up on me this year πŸ™ˆ This vid made me laugh... I have a feeling it's going to be a while before I'm allowed to blow out all my candles on my own again πŸ™„ πŸ˜† Nala's ears prick up when she hears someone say "birthday", because birthdays mean she gets to sing, and there's always cake πŸ˜„ πŸŽ₯ from my sis @simoneanderson 😘

She took the midnight train goin' anywhere.... 🎢 Actually she took the pram and I drank two coffees and went to the trash n treasure markets for the first time since I had her and I. CLEANED. UP πŸ’ƒπŸ½ She must bring me good luck πŸ€ I snuck everything into the house while Mr Nerd was having a nap and hid it in the cupboard. Now to style everything inside and pretend like it's always been there 🀫🀭.

New house, established gardens 🌿 Greenery at every turn in this absolutely amazing home by @giorgi_architects_builders opened up for their special @ultimo_interiors and @lintonandkay champagne breakfast. The house was so beautifully styled, the people were lovely and it was a nice little change from nappies and Netflix! ☺️ (More glimpses in my Stories).

Now and Before... we have new concrete! πŸ€“πŸΆ (Swipe for a before pic of our 70s abode, when we'd rendered the brick in a cheerful yellow πŸ˜ŽπŸŒžπŸ˜‚) The next step in Mr Nerd's dream double carport is now done after a mammoth week 😴 We have to wait a while before we can paint it but it will be a dark reddish-brown... yep kinda Mission Brown but in a good way! When Mr Nerd was planning the carport stage of our @scyonwalls makeover I was so worried that it would turn our garden into a concrete wonderland, because I love my greenery... overgrown, loopy old lady gardens are my #goals πŸ‘΅πŸ½ But I have to admit it's actually turned out nicer than I thought. Next week will be all about replanting and adding new green πŸŒΏπŸŒ±πŸ€πŸŒ² .

WIN πŸ’› Setting a nice-looking table with matching plates is one of those rare things that makes me feel like a real grown-up πŸ˜„ (Things like having babies and paying bills oddly don't have the same effect!) Thank to iconic servingware range @corelleaus I've got two dining sets to give away this week. I have both here on our table - one is their Winter Frost set which is a lovely classic white and the other is the pretty French Provincial Blue (swipe to see a close up). Each 16pc set is valued at $59 and includes four dinner plates, bread and butter plates, bowls and mugs. And they are made from vitrelle - super strong and chip resistant so great for houses with kids like ours! πŸ˜… To win a set of new plates for your home all you have to do is follow @corelleaus and @housenerd and tag a friend for entry. One friend, one entry, four friends four entries. (And let me know if you have a preferred style - 1. Winter Frost or 2. French πŸ’™) Competition open Australia-wide, closes September 9th. Good luck πŸ’›

I blogged! 😲 It only took me eight weeks to write one post πŸ˜„ - Miss Nerd's birth story πŸ‘ΆπŸ» I really wanted to share this as I love reading birth stories, especially positive ones. And I think mine is a positive one (well, except for one smaaall detail πŸ€ͺπŸ˜…). Because even though my husband sadly missed being there at the birth, it turned out fine... but I had been so worried about the possibilty while pregnant. FIFO wives or women whose partner has to travel for work will relate! Anyway - link in my profile, my brain has been operating on a shrunken capacity, so hope it makes sense. Oh, and there's a TMI warning πŸ˜„

My op shop haul from the other day πŸ™ˆ $24.50 for happiness and a future gallery wall, all from one shop πŸ˜„ Mr Nerd says when I buy art like this it makes him feel like he's living with an old woman πŸ˜•πŸ‘΅πŸ½ But I like it πŸ€“

I have a rug! πŸ’™πŸ’ƒπŸ½ All these years of owning a home, and I've always hesitated about buying a rug, never sure if I trust my own taste or if I'll make the wrong decision. After my gorgeous friend and fellow house nerd @tickmebrindle told me she buys rugs online all the time and gave me her simple but effective advice to just choose what I like, I finally braved up and did so... and I'm so happy with it! πŸ˜„ This vintage Turkish beauty from @uniquerugstore arrived yesterday. They have the most amazing range - vintage kilims, overdyed, Dama and Persian, so many different colours and patterns and price points and they ship to Australia πŸ˜† (See my Instastories for Little Nerd's reaction... he told me, "I love this rug Mummy, because my engines love it." πŸš‚ Well thank God for that πŸ˜„)

Coming home to the dog standing like the Lion King on your new leather couch she knows she's not allowed on without a blanket πŸ˜‘ Can't wait til all that limestone rubble is freshly poured concrete - then to add in a few more agaves, pour some gravel and our front elevation makeover is complete! ✨🌟⭐✴️ I've had a lot of DMs asking if our @scyonwalls makeover is complete and can I share pics. While the Scyon cladding was finished a good while ago (thanks @tjp_carpentry !) the only reason I haven't posted pics yet is because we ended up deciding to do more to the house than we initially planned - new carport, guttering, fascias, car bay and new retaining wall. (Also, new baby πŸ€­πŸ˜…πŸ˜΄) Admittedly I am a typical blogger and I love showing a full before and after... however I feel like so many people have waited so patiently (sorry!) so I promise I'll do a post of progress pics soon! 🏚️ πŸ‘‰πŸ½ 🏠 (Also, thinking of painting our front door - yay or nay?)
