Wonderful Weekend

What a lovely start to the weekend, delightful Autumn weather, and a pleasant 19 degrees. This Saturday was spent  in the vegie patch... one of my favourite ways to spend any day. The chook tractor, Sweet Pea Cottage, was in need of a few renovations, in the form of new wheels and handles for easier transportation.

Our 2 little Lohman Brown chookies.. Oh so friendly and love a cuddle.

Once all repairs had been made, we returned the chooks to their home, and within minutes had dug up the soil and were enjoying one of their favourite past times, a dust bath, adding a further future ankle twisting ditch in the lawn.

Craft Swap

Here's a small progress post on the craft swap at Artichoke Designs. Can't give too much away, or I'll ruin the surprise for my swap partner Linda, over at the bohemian juhnkee. It's perfect weather for crafting today, cold, wet and windy (even a gale warning has been issued). On with a pair of warm socks and onto the sewing machine for me..more crafting ahead.

Op-shop Treasures

Here are a few of my purchases for this week, all found at the local op-shops.

A set of Johnson, Australia dinner plates, bread and butter plates and bowls. 4 of each in lovely pale blue, in perfect condition.

A bag of buttons for 50c.

And inside yielded a variety of treasures, I especially like the white cameo style button and the old safety pin.

Welcome and Farewell

First post...Trying to get the hang of this whole blogging thing. I've been wanting to get a blog started for a while. Now it's transpiring.

Yesterday I farewelled my Grandfather, Bill. At 91 years of age, it was time to say goodbye. Now you are together with Nan once again.

Forsake me not, O Lord
When I am
Old and my strength faileth
