Save the image if you like it.... use it for whatever you wish...



Gosh I forget to come to my blog and make an entry... the days go by so quickly ...  We are packing away our summer garden furniture this afternoon, moving tables and chairs and my lovely swing I like to sit on and watch the birds.  Putting the lawn mower away and our bikes, also my flower pots and other things for the garden and getting ready for the snow shovels and all that comes with winter.  Weather certainly is getting cooler and so dark so much earlier. 

A neat little video I found this morning on my Aussie newspaper's pages.
Gorgeous little bundles.. I sure do love them...check them out .. they will make you smile I'm sure.

I've gone all shabby chic at my Etsy shoppe....  :-)
I've loved it ever since I can remember and my home back in Australia was mostly white and filled with all things shabby chic.   I even made a quilt by hand ... big gorgeous one... in the tones of the image above... soft greens, pinks, cream, beige and a darker green.  I should take a photo of it and post it here. I brought it with me from Tasmania when I came to live in Canada.  Took me ages to do with all the fine stitching to make the quilted swirls around the edges and also joining up the pieces.   I can never remember having any pink clothes growing up ... perhaps my mum didn't like it... she never bought me anything in pink... so I'm addicted to it now. Nothing nicer than pink and cream and a soft green.

A pretty lady with a gorgeous pink bow.... roses of course, some lace and a big floppy hat.
I love all those elements and have been busy revamping my Etsy shoppe.  There are lots and lots of new things to see ... and special bargains by using coupon codes mentioned at the top of my Home page there
Bookmark the shoppe in case you want to visit when you have lots of time to sit and enjoy the pretties and I'm sure there'll be something there you like.
