Happy Friday

After a busy week with work and family, I've been absent from the wonderful world of blog.  I hope you've had a good week and shared love and smiles with those you love.  Here's a pic that I love, taken on our recent retreat to the Gold Coast.

A heart of stone.

When I loved myself enough...

This autumn leaf found it's way to the seashore!

I quit wishing my life looked some other way and began to see that as it is, my life serves my evolution.

I'm back!

After several days without computer, it's nice to be home to see what everyone's been up to.  My dearest friend sent me this video.  It bought tears to my eyes and i'm sure it will for you too.  I hope i've loaded it properly.  One of my favourite blogs to visit is Kelly Rae Roberts.  Have you been there?  An amazingly talented lady and mum.  So, my friend saw it on Kelly's blog and facebooked it to me while i was away on holidays.  So now, I've watched it several times and need to share with you.  I honour Katherine Center, who i believe is the creator of this.

If i have somehow not done this properly, here is the link....

vintage buttons...

As a little show and tell, and after reading Salvation Jane latest blog, I thought i'd share a little vintage button project i undertook with my horse-mad girl.

We painted this large canvas this lovely chocolate colour.  I used crayons to do the writing and heart outline and we used vintage buttons to fill in the heart.  No job is complete without some purple, so we added some old purple buttons along the bottom.  For a real vintage look, we left the old cotton on some of the buttons.

In a totally unrelated story, did i tell you about the time when we thought the chooks had stopped laying recently.  They seemed so healthy and happy and it wasn't the middle of winter.  Each day when their nest was empty, i was scratching my head wondering why there were no eggs.  Anyway, i decided they i would go on an egg hunt.  Look what i found....

Three and half days worth of eggs hiding under some branches in the garden. 

Enjoy the rest of your week.  I sure will.  Eyelash tint - tick, spa pedicure - tick.  Off to the Goldie for some sun and sand with those i love,  including our wedding anniversary.

The perfect wedding venue, on the beach at The Pass, Byron Bay, 7.30am, 6 May 2006.  Followed by a delicious wedding brunch with our family and friends at The Fig Tree at Ewingsdale.
