Thanks so much for all the lovely comments on my Saturday Club Mission.

I must say you girls are too kind. 20110530-02-white-bedroom-coastal-

This past weekend has been busy, really really busy.  I was on bbq duty at 8am on Saturday morning…spent 2 hours cooking sausages, bacon and eggs…while my boys played their boy games and my girl did her thing too…

It pretty much stayed that way all day…and included in the mix just to keep our logistical skills at the fore two kiddies parties and more sport…I scooted home at 5.30, soaked my very sore muscles in the bath and was out in town meeting friends and having tapas and Spanish dancing by 7pm.


Sunday was looking the same…apart from Sunday morning…both the bigger kiddos were not busy until lunchtime and we had wangled a car pooling for the little one…which meant that once he was picked up at 7.30 Mr BC and I lounged in here…..


…for hours…

in fact we lounged in here long after little Mr BC came back…and when he came home he poked his head around the door and asked

‘you still in there?’

oh yes




When Mr BC and I were first together we used to do this a lot…lounge around with nothing to do, those days seem so very far away now to me…he used to make us a huge platter of nibbles and a tray of drinks and we would just fester….there isn’t often that we don’t do anything anymore…


It was the best, long, languid lay-in I have had for a very long time…we had several cups of tea, biscuits and did nothing…not even read the papers




I did stare at this pillow for a very long time…while I was perusing whether this might overtake the patio door as my new boyfriend Mr BC asked

“is that a new cushion?”




“Pah!” said I

“No, no,no, we’ve had this ages…gosh Mr BC don’t you notice anything?”

mumble and eyebrows



“Funny that”  he said

uh oh


“I swear little Mr BC told me that you were late for soccer practice because the quilt that you have been looking at for 5 months in that little boutique finally put it on sale and he told me that you were so excited that it was half-price that you ran to the bank to get some cash and then ran back as now you were late and when you got in the shop you squealed and did a little jig”

cough cough


“He asked me if mummies always get so excited about girlie things like that”

“I told him no not all of them do”

“but most”




I need to have a chat with little Mr BC ;-)  tell him about the girl things ;-)

I hope you like it




…not quite sure how I am gonna explain the quilt…it’s not like we don’t already have 6 white quilts stacked up on top of the wardrobe…oh no I mean seven, still haven’t shown you the ruffle one…

Bye for now, I am going somewhere exciting today…tell ya about it soon…

    As I was admiring your gorgeous bedroom, boudoir and haven I kept looking for caterpillars((*_*))

    Love the new cushion, love it all……since all computers vary in color are those sheets gray/grey?? If so I want to get some, care to share??

    Happy Sunday~~


  2. Tammi says:

    With the rain pelting down here this morning I could easily stay curled up in bed, infact I think I’ll do just that ;)

    That cushion is rather cute and yes I do believe I would go weak at the knees if I saw it for half price. As for your sheet set…it’s gorgeous!!


  3. Bedroom looks just gorgeous! Yes my hubs and I used to do the same with whole days to do nothing. Makes you appreciate it more when you can though!

  4. catherine says:

    pretty….but im really loving that lampshade!

  5. Kimberly says:

    LOVE that new pillow! Oops, I mean OLD pillow, it is fabulous and goes with your (current) duvet cover so well! I can sew, wonder if I could make one sort of like it? Will have to put that on my list of things to do!



  6. Angie says:

    Gotta love those kiddos ! I spent a day just like yours today yipee ! Slept really late got up and made bacon and pancakes for hubs and I, cleaned kitchen then did absolutely nothing the rest of the day. Have a holiday tomorrow with no plans, so will do my homemaker chores tomorrow ! Glad you had a day to kick back and do NOTHING !

  7. Kate Ross says:

    Hi Sarah,

    I Luurvve those spotty sheets . Those neutral colours and whites are all i have in my home! Care to share where they are from?


  8. Suzanne says:

  9. Nicole says:

    Gorgeous! That entire bed looks incredibly cozy. What a way to make a morning. :)

  10. Alice says:

    what a dreammy bed… long gone are those lounge and do nothing all day days…. 8am is a sleep in for me… It’s pretty good I guess… Yes I too do jigs when things that I have wanted for what seems ever finally go on discount…My husband usually steps away from me and tells fellow customers that he doesn’t know me – I’m not with her….I dont know who that crazy singing, dancing, grinnig lady is… etc

  11. Cas says:

    LOL! Yes, you will have to have a wee chat with Little Mr BC….love the cushion and that white quilt is scrummy :) Hope you have fun wherever it is you are going today.

  12. Barefoot Liz says:

    That quilt makes me want to climb in and get cozy! Oh, and my 8 yr old son is in love with that round cushion. Yep, in love. He said he loves it so much…He wants to MARRY it. He cracks me up.

  13. donna says:

    Your bed looks completely dreamy and I would not get out at all ! You’re so lucky to have someone to share those moments with.. Little Mr Bc will grow up knowing all your little secrets, how sweet is that! I know your jig very well as I used to do the same thing. When I discovered people starring it’s now evolved into more of a hip pivot,lol. Who cares…I wish more people would get that excited over simply beautiful things…Enjoy the whole room looks gorgeous! Donna

  14. So glad you were able to have a relaxling morning in bed…and such an inviting bed it is:-) Love the pillow and also your sheets are so devine.


  15. Charmaine says:

  16. Kim says:

    Darling Post! Love the pillow and how nice to just chill for a spell.Nice to just stop and enjoy life~Cheers Kim

  17. JS says:

    Funny, Mr BC didn’t mention that pillow at last Wendesday night’s State of Origin match??

  18. Kat says:

    Your bedroom looks so peaceful and serene and perfect for lounging in.
    Ah, I am still working on mine being those things, but alas when I find the time to sleep in, or read in my little “sanctuary” one of my four precious little ones comes and finds me, jumps on the bed, the others soon follow and THAT is the end of that!!
    Love, love ,LOVE that new pillow. Where did you find it?

  19. Deb says:

    Perfect place to while away some time with Mr Right.

  20. Susan says:

    What are the oars for? Haha

    Gorgeous cushion….. Hope you spoke to little mr bc. We ladies must teach our small children the finer art of lies of omission….. My mother told me that they really aren’t lies at all. ;)

  21. Ah! Such a nice suggestion in your blog for couples.. Sometimes, one should just lie down with trayful of nibbles and drinks, a few magazines and a few DVDs maybe and just do Nothing! Absolutely nothing.. Loved it!

  22. Nicole says:

    Love the colour of it and the style too
    So pretty

  23. Bev says:

    So, so beautiful !!!! Love the sheets. Share please !

  24. sheet says:

  25. holy sheet says:

    I would have liked to win.

  26. FABBY says:

    I love your bedroom…the bed is to jump on it and have breakfast! Your bed arrangement looks delicious and cuddly, wish mine looked like this, I’m into fixing our total bedroom, so thanks for the inspiration and for coming by and leaving me such wonderful comments on my tablescape! Have a nice Memmorial Day, hope the weather is great by you.

  27. So pretty Sarah! I’m considering gray for the home re-do, seems like it’s really soothing. I’d love a morning lounging around with no one but my loving hubby. When or where that happens I’ll never know!

  28. Sarah says:

    Like many others who already commented, I love the sheets! Have you mentioned before where they are from? So lovely.

  29. Katherine says:

    I love your cushion so much – it is exactly what I am looking for!! Lucky you.

    I love the colours in this “make over” – very calming and soothing. Love the spotty quilt too – all looks wonderfull together. Good one!!

    I get excited about girlie things – especially being a girl on my own in a “boy” household!! I understand perfectly……

    ; )

  34. Susan says:

    I love your bedroom! It looks so restful – it’s no wonder you like to spend time in there doing nothing when you can!

  35. Love love love the bedroom!!!!!
