Checking in...

Hard to believe that it's been over 3 weeks since I last posted...I have had a few computer issues but hopefully all is fixed now.

The roses are all in full bloom

even the vegie patch is doing well...this pic was taken a week ago and the tomatoes have grown heaps since then 

Last week I went with my sister to her newly purchased  house and property. The gardens are just beautiful!. I love this stone shed next to the vegie garden and could see it being the perfect back drop for a quilt photo shoot

This is one of the garden paths...we removed the biggest Diosma shrub on the right of the path. Yes wished I had done a before shot

The previous owner left behind some of her artwork...isn't this lovely?? This Kookaburra is painted on one side of a terracotta pot and a Cockatoo the other
I am sure that Jane will share more photos of her beautiful garden once she gets settled in.

Bye For Now

Garage Sale...

Saturday we called in to have a look at a local Garage Sale, and boy did I find some lovely things...

this gorgeous pitcher set in blue and another one in cream/apricot that is slightly smaller (in pic below)

a whiskey decanter, ceramic picture plate in background

a drawing of an old house here in town which was once the bakery many years ago...I would walk past this old house on my daily walks and dream of it being my very own patchwork shop and could easily see quilts displayed on the front verandah...nice to dream!!!lol

and I couldn't wait to see how my flowers looked in my new pitcher set

I also bought a couple of wrought iron wall designs, which I will have to share some photos of next time.

I have to apologize also for not replying to some comments on previous posts. We are having a few problems with our desktop computer and I can't send any frustrating!

Enjoy your week!!
