Award



The beautiful Trish from A Dream House for Trish has passed this award over to me, here is what she had to say about the Liebster award.

Liebster is a German word meaning "dearest" and the award is given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. The award has a few stipulations:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it you.

2. Reveal your five blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

4. Hope that people you have sent the award to forward it on to their favourite bloggers.

If you haven't already popped in to visit Trish's lovely blog just follow this link  "A Dream House for Trish".  So first and foremost a huge thank you to the beautiful Trish for honoring me with this lovely award xxx

Now its my turn to pass this award on to only 5 bloggers.  And I will also find it very hard  as I also love literally hundreds.  I really love being part of this blog world.  I have met so many wonderful and clever ladies.  I value your comments and emails especially.
Here are five blogs that I love to pop in and visit. Enjoy.xxx

Beach Box


Hope you all had a fabulous christmas,


we set off to the beach yesterday, the dogs came too


wondered past these bathing sheds


this would be a lovely spot to live


because of the overcast skies, we nearly had the beach to ourselves.  Don't you love walking barefoot in the sand.x

Merry Christmas


Well, most of the presents are all wrapped, I can't fit one more light on the tree


I have kept the water up to my tree, its still green


This star is made up of small silver bells, when you shake it, it really does sound like Santa is on his way



I'm really loving pink and blue this year, so pretty


this bowl is one of my gorgeous items purchased from Kellie at Ada and Darcy,  I can't show you the others, they are wrapped up under the tree.


Snoopy is loving the shiny new decorations, I think he can see himself in them, or maybe the cat.

Merry Christmas everyone, thank you for all your lovely comments, I really appreciate them.xxx

Presents


I have finally started wrapping some presents, I love this part.


These beautiufl tags are from my mum, they are so sweet and are the finishing touch on my presents.


I went on an outing last night to Ikea, yes I was excited too, and I bought six feather cushion inserts, $8.99 and $9.99, so now I need to search for some lovely fabrics, the best part, don't you think.


My Christmas Tree.

Have a lovely day, have you finished your christmas shopping yet.x

Welcome Martha


Martha Stewart has arrived in Australia, I wish I had realised earlier, I would have loved to have seen her in Sydney.  Martha has built an amazing empire.  

What would you ask Martha over dinner, or a coffee and cake perhaps,


You can visit Martha's blog here


Remember my roses in my Queen Anne tea cup, lovely.


This beautiful water lilly is from my friend J's house.  She has a stunning display of water lillies, they are beautiful.
Have a fabulous Tuesday.x

Red


Because I'm mad on pink, blue and green.  Thought I would look for some traditional christmas colour inspiration.







I finally have my tree up, I have lots of wrapping to do now, and more shopping.  My tree has three hundred fairy lights on it this year, and thats because Target had 40% off lights, I haven't purchased one single bauble yet, but theres still time isnt there.

Tree Placecard


I came across this little tree placecard over at Martha's.

You can print off a template, I have traced it onto some pretty scrapbooking paper.  Just take care when folding, my star is was sitting a little crooked on my first one.



Happy Sundayx

Thursday House


images from HGTV

I love this house, the colour, the windows, the timber and the gardens.


This gate and fence are exactly what I've been looking for, I love it. 



My hedges are growing like mad, all this rain and some sunshine, guess what we will be doing this weekend, they were so small when we planted them three years ago.




Enjoy your Thursday.x
