Today is my Mums Birthday
she is 86 today
we celebrated with lunch at our house
my Sister came also
we shared lots of good food, wine
lots of chatter
and of course cake
lots of cake
Also many cups of tea
She was also
delighted at opening the
gifts we'd given her
The weather was perfect
crisp autumn morning
turning into a beautiful
warm summer afternoon
After such a lovely day
I can be so grateful
of many things about Mum
that she is still with us
as I know many out there
aren't so fortunate
Mum at 86
still has a very sharp mind
is also quite agile
still very creative
always so interested
in anything she can get her
hands on
whether it be
crochet, knitting, embroidery,
patchwork etc.,
and last but not least 
she is a wonderful friend
I'm sure it's her lifetime
passion for being creative
that has helped both to exercise
and keep
her mind so sharp
as she ages
Life just wouldn't be the same without her

Hope you're all having
a wonderful week-end
and are fortunate enough
to have a 
beautiful Mum
to share your life with

I've been busy playing with
papers, buttons, lace
etc., and making
these large Easter gift cards
or tags
Such fun to make
for a pretty result
with a vintage shabby look

 These are available 
in my Ebay right now
Hope your week is going well
Have a lovely evening
Sweet dreams

The Good Life 24th March 2012

Yesterday we (that is hubby and I) celebrated 33 years of marriage
We just decided to spend the day doing some of our favourite things
Hopped in the car and took a short drive down to nearby Avoca Beach
The weather was perfect, just like on the day we were married in 1979
So it was beautiful just to walk along the sand for a while
Then we had a lovely lunch at this beachside cafe 

Then after a long leasurely lunch 
we strolled along to
the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre
Here we saw a charming movie
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Very pleasant and humorous movie
Avoca Beach Theatre is a beautiful heritage theatre, a must see theatre with old world atmosphere, velvet seats, beautiful vintage candelabras and free tea and coffee.  Just a short walk from Avoca Beach.
At days end we could be so grateful for a perfect day
for us at the moment
life is good

Have a great week-end everyone!!

Getting back to doing what I love...

"Find something you love to do and you'll never have to work a day in your life"

How true this is. 
When I get to do things I enjoy, such as painting, sewing, mixed media art or anything creative which I really love, it's never a chore but just pure pleasure. 
To me it's not work at all, and doesn't the time just fly past when you finally find the time to just sit and do the things you most enjoy doing?
Sorry I've been a bad blogger lately.
Had our daughter paying us a visit from the U.K for a couple of weeks. 
Wonderful, but as always very sad to say "good bye"

Young ones are so full on though, hard to keep up with them.
Must be getting old?  
No, couldn't be that!! Tee hee!
Things should be getting back to normal soon and hopefully I'll have more creations to show and talk about

Hope your week is wonderful
Wherever you may be
Goodnight now and sweet dreams
