Finally finished painting the Kookaburra sign I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. Cairns Regional Council have decided (in their wisdom) that our address will no longer be "Lot 20 Golden Street" but instead we will be "29-31 Golden Street." This change from Lots to Numbers has caused quite a bit of confusion in the neigbourhood with some properties still displaying their "Lot" numbers and not their street numbers and vice versa.
I had the idea that I would like something a bit original rather than JUST a couple of numbers on the fence. This is how I came up with the "Kookaburra" sign. I officially nailed it to the fence this afternoon and planted a row of marigolds in the garden bed under it. I know Mum would have loved it.
I also decided to refresh our previous "A House is Not a Home Without a Dog" with something a little more "serious". Although not quite sure whether I have succeeded?
Micky looks quite angelic with his tongue hanging out and a smile on his face! Perhaps I might need to paint out the tongue and show some teeth! Hopefully visitors will get the message?
Good News of the Day : Finally managed to get all my towels dry after days and days of rain.
