DIY FRIDAY. It’s a total lemon (or two)

Holy crapola is it really Friday again? Time is freaken flying by and today is a very special day indeed. Anzac Day. I guess I should be doing a DIY post on poppies. But the truth is that would make me sad. As selfish as that may sound, Anzac day not only reminds me of what our soldiers sacrificed for our country all those years ago, but also of my granddad Wally who passed away a few years ago now, who I still miss and think of often. So today I skipped the expected theme for something bright & colourful (and apparently great for weight loss) the good ole lemon.

I must admit that I have been a little smitten with all things yellow lately. Maybe I am still clinging on to summer (well those few nice days we did have). Maybe I am just bonkers… yep that is probably it. Anyway, here are some sweet ideas for decorating your day with lemons. Enjoy.

This also looks great with whole lemons but the sliced uses less lemons and
gives off a nice scent. You could also do this with limes! Image via Wed Book.

    So very pretty, would never have picked lemon as a ‘theme’ but this looks absolutely beautiful and so different.
