My morning started in the garden collecting some bougainvillea which I plonked into a vase and packed into the car along with a full load of lovely things. I headed off on my journey down to Broadbeach on the Gold Coast where I spent the day installing new furniture at an apartment I have had the pleasure of working on over the past few months.
My grand plans of arranging the big bunch of pretty pink bougainvillea in a vase on my clien'ts new sideboard went down the drain about halfway there when the bunch and the water fell out of the vase as I was going around a corner. By the time I arrived at the Coast the poor flowers had dropped. I had to improvise. I found a native bush in the front garden of the apartment building which I cut a few branches from. They looked great arranged in the glass vase on the sideboard along with the other new bits and pieces I organised for her.
It was a full day of unpacking new furniture and placing pieces, cushions, lamps and accessories. The owners of this apartment actually built the building way back in the 60's. It has a divine view of the beach and the breeze is sensational.
I didn't want to leave. I could have stayed on for days and days. Unfortunately B&S and my boys can't survive without me so I reluctantly left my client so that she could enjoy her beautiful new things. It's so rewarding seeing a project come to fruition and especially when the client is a happy one at the end of the day. Phew!!
I wish I took more photos but I only had my phone with me so I quickly snapped these as I was leaving...
