Green with Envy - Green Penguin Books

Via Pinterest

After coming across two Green Penguin Books in an Op Shop recently (which I quickly snapped up simply because they were green) I've become obsessed looking for more - not realising they were quite so hard to find - I decided- with a company name like Ten Green Balloons it would be a great idea to start collecting them…..  
I've since learned that Green Penguin Books fall under the genre of Mystery and Crime
and I find the graphic imagery of the covers of these four quite amazing!!!!

Old Postcards - Padova Northern Italy

My de-cluttering project is coming along nicely………all be it a little slowly!!!!

Just like this great quote by AA Milne (who just happens to make an appearance in my family tree)
I keep discovering great things I had forgotten about, like this old postcard from Padova probably
 found at a flea market or in an Op Shop…….goodness knows when!!!

De Cluttering 101 take 2 - Good Old Fashion Spring Clean

I'm failing miserably at De Cluttering 101 and still haven't found the Vacuum Cleaner Bags - which seem to have simply vanished…

but thats ok…. I've given it some thought, re grouped, and am starting with a good old fashion spring clean…. & I have already bought more Vacuum Cleaner Bags

Decluttering 101 - Everything Needs its Place

 In an attempt to de clutter I'm slowly grouping everything into categories so everything has its place
 and is easy to find when
With visitors arriving over the past few months and a desire to present a tidy looking home FAST…. I simply shoved things all over the place, essentially putting stuff wherever it would fit… Now I'm paying for that mistake and have almost turned my flat upside down looking for Vacuum Cleaner Bags…. which have simply disappeared!!!
Searching is such a waste of time and it would almost be quicker to head to the vacuum cleaner shop to buy more….. but NO I will find them!!

Getting Shit Done

In an attempt to achieve some new financial years resolutions Ten Green Balloons has a new banner and logo
inspired by Emily Floyd…

 Its taken all morning to remove the auto enhance feature on Google+ which for some reason makes the header appear dull rather than enhancing it - go figure…...but its done now, and thankfully the header background is no longer a muddy grey colour….

Ten Green Balloons HQ is going through a few changes so stay tuned for some logo and blog tweaking
and an online store via

  Big Cartel
