2013 saw me move from hospital nursing to practice nursing and I think I've found my calling. hospital nursing did have me doubting if I'd wasted three years at uni for a career I really wasn't enjoying much. thankfully a job ad caught my attention a few weeks after moving here and I decided to give it a go.
2013 was the year that we added chooks to our family once again. they bring much entertainment and happiness to our days and of course those beautiful fresh eggs.
a change of op-shops too this past year. I've since added a bit of milk glass to the collection as well as Johnson of Australia crockery (I shared my collection too- part 1 & 2) and a fair few vintage sheets were added to the stash too.
on the sewing front 2013 saw me make more clothes for myself, including a bark cloth dress. I also managed to finish the vintage sheet quilt I started a couple of years back.
as for 2014 I've got a couple of things that i hope to achieve. one being to organise my little shop and maybe try a couple of different avenues for selling my wares. i also plan to get involved in more blog swaps and send more mail.. a little handwritten note to accompany something I've made or found that made me think of a particular person as soon as i saw it. another little goal is to actually put some of that time spent browsing pinterest to good use and make some of my pins a reality.
a big thank you to all those lovely ones who have dropped by my blog this past year. your comments and encouragement brings a smile to my face. may 2014 bring you happiness and a chance to fulfil some of those hopes and dreams. x
