pom poms & rainbows

we hung these small pom pom garlands out the front to welcome mirka's birthday guests for her recent party & although that was exactly a month ago today, you guessed it, they are still up. much like all the other decorations over the past few years, i find it hard to take them down too quickly*. these ones have gotta come down soon, in time for whatever we end up doing for halloween in a few weeks, but in the meantime, i'm enjoying them blowing around like crazy out on the front verandah, even if they are looking a little beaten up from the spring rain we've had. mirka is into rainbows as much as ever, hence the rainbow layered birthday cake again this year and i'll have to do something different for next year's birthday, but tell me, how fantastic is the rainbow poster? it was a gift from her honorary uncle hamo & is hanging up, pride of place, on her bedroom wall. pom poms & rainbows. what's not to love about turning four.

*all i'm sayin' is that our tree out the front, may, or may not, have the fairy lights still strung up in it from last xmas. maybe we're just early y'all.

  4. I love those pom poms.

    Can I ask what colour paint the exterior of your home is? I am trying to decide on colours at the moment and am feeling overwhelmed. Especially since I have an interesting colourbond roof colour to try work back with!
