about this girls

although she will be with her sister
in Texas
they all grow up
an old pic of us on another of her birthdays a few years ago
she still loves me
and i her
on another note
i started knitting some wee little sweet woolen pants tonight for another
precious little girl
but thats for another post
have a great week
i am in the middle of mine and very grateful for it xx

Another week flies by

and as summer moves on in i find myself dreaming of
the sports i love so much
and need to 'make the time for' more

i do miss my days with my rowing partners
and only ocassionally get to row in a scull these days
but when i do
i love it so much

i do still own this kayak since we moved away from the waters edge
but dont use it all that much
i must confess i do need a bit more 'braun' to help with the
lifting to the car roof

perhaps after making this post one of my fellow water sports lovers may
ring and invite me for a row
it often happens
putting it out there......:)

this gorgeous piece of art from garden mama...just superb little gem is up for grabs...go see
and have a happy energetic weekend
love to you :)x

minus one crafty teenager

we all spent saturday refurbishing

one scraggly old vege patch
hee hee...
he looks a bit scraggly too
my gorgeous Pierre

a remnant of the old

with additions on the way
with Erums' help
our Korean wwoof
staying with us for a few weeks
Erum has a really lovely presence
hard working too

this very heavily laden passionfruit vine strangling a very nice little mandarin
and tamarillo
the fruit is so close to picking
saved for now

and the semi finished product
all fenced
with gate

i just noticed the sprinkler
in the far right corner
must remember to turn this off before work today

my beautiful bay tree and
one lovely big rosemary bush
so that is some of our work for the weekend
the new garden measures 14m x 5m
if you click on the pics you will see a close up
i love the coriander and the dill is about to spring into a
beautiful head of yellow
all belonging to the umbellifer family
so gorgeous
will post more tomorrow or when i get time to get more pics
happy day
work hard..:)x

i have found a few gems of late
i would do a collective

beautiful paper tissue napkins will soon bring this little lady back
and i was snickered at
(i mean ...who their right mind would want this piece of junk)
thats who
yeah..she's wonky...

not really sure if i will ever need a hoop this large
but for $2 could not leave it there

the crystal had an ever so little chip in it....50c

this gorgeous cotton curtain panel can surely find a home here

such a pity there were not 3 of these fruit
i am a girl of balance

the floral piece
roughly 2.5 metre x 3x5 drop
gorgeous strong cotton $2

due to laziness the rest will have to wait
already housed
the shed
awaiting decisions

day off tomorrow
hmmm...what will i entertain myself with..
thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day

Dorky Creative Space

what it is about this stuff we make
why am i attached to
this bit of dorkiness

its my first ever quilt
due to time restraints i chose a pattern
would have much preferred a little more creative outlet
perhaps next time

not too sure about that mouth

for much less dorkiness pop on over to Kirsty's
happy day :)

with so much...
but find myself thinking a lot lately about


these babies


sadly rehomed a little while ago
and very much missed
just bathed here...hence the lead
a little melancholy
