Is Good Taste Genetic?

67/100 complete

If it is then I must have good taste.

I mean really, I like my taste obviously but I have 2 sisters who have great taste in everything –  also including presents! I have this family who have style and creativity and cleverness in bucketloads…it is a lovely circle to be part of.

My Polish Russian Dolls

I always thought my mum was the most beautiful and loveliest of all the mums and though our tastes are certainly different – think minimalism/monastic looking versus say Dr Seuss –  I do think her taste is great.

Kitchen Picnic

Sister 1 is always at least 1 season ahead of what is happening in the fashion world


and sister 2 wears hats and scarves like they were invented for her (sadly I don’t work either well!)


So, so long as I don’t count Dad in the good taste is genetic theory I am onto a winner. I do love my Dad but stubbies are really not tasteful on anyone – although I guess he is a farmer!!! But he is very creative and that is something I value very much.

And along with these there is Step-Dad, Step-Mum, Brothers and Partners and In Laws, relations and ancestors, friends. And best of all husband and sons. A life filled with inspiring and beautiful people.

Past and Present


I love our house it is a haven of laughter and full of great memories with friends and family.

The Start of Another Collection?

When I look around there are lots of things that make me smile. We are hoping to sell our house and I hope the next people in it have as much happiness as we have here.

Master 4 Reads to Master 1

I completed Challenge 67 – read my all-time Bible favourite Isaiah. So many lovely verses here’s one for today – Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. 43v15-16

    The answer is YES – good taste is genetic! 😉

  5. Very lovely esp the boys reading to each other…but can mum’s taste REALLY be described as monasitic? Help me out here, is it just me?
