Going Up




We're recently been discussing the possibilities of going up over the garage.
Subject To Council Approval
I love dormer windows but the proportions have to be perfect or they look ridiculous.
They can't look like they've just been added, they need to look as if they've always been there
We have building height restrictions hence the STCA but maybe going up a little
and adding dormer windows is the answer!
Council wouldn't let us put a cupola on a proposed extension 
so, I doubt we'll be going up any time soon....

Dash & Albert Gypsy Rose

Personally, leather sofas aren't a favourite of mine.  Yes, I'll take a leather 
studded wingback in the office but not as a sofa - call me a snob 
it's just not my cup of tea.
But I must admit my brother has a Gypsy Rose woollen rug in his family room 
and sitting proudly on the rug is a burnt red leather sofa!
The combination of the red leather pulling the burnt reds out of the 
Dash & Albert Gypsy Rose, well, it simply looks stunning!

What a Fun Day

Stop smiling at the camera & sit up girl!

And what a Fun Day it was!
Izzy went to the last Shibumi Fun Day on Sunday the 6th May, the weather was perfect, 
the day ran smoothly, thanks to the staff and I'm guessing lots of volunteers 
at Shibumi Equestrian Centre.

We've recently had the opportunity to start riding with Anna Groom, who recently moved 
to the Southern Highlands.  I was actually at school with Anna and when she called to 
say that Izzy could ride one of her mares, naturally I was over the moon!

What a gift for a 10yr old girl to have the opportunity to ride 
a beautifully trained Warmblood mare. 
Pitchie, is gorgeous and both Izzy and I are in love.....

Anna felt that it would be good experience for Izzy to take Pitchie out and 
the Shibumi Fun Day was the perfect first outing.  The day was really well organised, with the
draw being emailed the week before and everything running like clockwork.

Izzy, did a prep test, as we all felt the first outing should be a confidence 
builder and Izzy hasn't totally nailed the 20m canter circles! 
Janice Underwood scored the test and Izzy and Pitchie received 
73.3% and a blue ribbon!

Thank you Anna 

Ps we shouldn't have dressed up for the day but it is fun playing dress up 
next time we'll be neatly presented and wearing multiple layers!

Thank you - Australian House & Garden

Thank you Australian House & Garden and Imogene Roache for featuring the 
fun Dash & Albert Hot House Winter woollen hooked rug in the H&G Shopping section 
 "Nine By Design" in this months issue.  
I'm looking forward to the weekend so I can enjoy a 
good read on Mother's Day!

If you've never thought of having a 60x90cm woollen rug at the 
Kitchen and Laundry Sink, now's the time with winter approaching...
You might say, "wool at the kitchen sink" but let me tell you
I'm no super clean cook!  I just vacuum, spot clean as needed 
and professionally clean if necessary.
If you're really dangerous in the kitchen you can always go for 
a Dash & Albert in/outdoor rug!

If you're interested in this or any other wonderful Dash & Albert products 
send me an email  noting your post code and I'll head you in the 
direction of your nearest Dash stockist.
