It's a new car!

This is Matt's new work car. Toyota RAV 4 Edge Limited Edition, in Storm Blue. It is a beautiful colour, darker than it shows in this photo. This pic was taken at the dealers, Matt had just driven it out of the showroom, so I thought I should get a photo as this is the cleanest it will ever be!
We picked it up Friday afternoon with 70 km's on it and now it has 300. I had a wedding to shoot, that involved driving on a dirt road, so I even washed the car after the reception! That was a nice thought... it didn't stay clean for long as we had a dust storm... Oh well!
I plan on scrapping the life story of the other work car over the Christmas break.
Stay tuned for wedding pics. I was hit badly with a cold while the wedding ceremony took place. I thought it was hay fever to start with, but I was wrong. I was never without a tissue and camera in hand... That was a challenge!

Vintage is the new black.

The past few months I have discoverd my love of sewing again. I lived attached to my sewing machine for a good few years. I think we spent so much time together that we had nothing left to really talk about.... Now we are friends again and finding our groove.

My Grandmother gave me these cut up pieces of fabric that she found in her collection, and as I hung them on the line to dry, I thought Sky Watch Friday moment! I love summer. You can hang things on the line at 6pm and they will usually dry before dark!

I have a dreadful headache, sleep is what is needed - not water Mum! :)

So instead of getting productive and making more Christmas goodies, I decided to blog hop. There is just soooo much out there!

I found these fabrics at Retromummy. She is also having a giveaway, so stop on over for a chance and also some inspiration.

I am now too tired and the ARIA awards are not doing much for me!

Are you ever to old for LEGO?

Look what I found on Pop Deluxe!
I love this building... I have a large photo that I took of it one Autumn, framed and hanging in our entry. I am to lazy to go and take a photo of the photo so I have used the www to show you the famous Fallingwater. I feel many connections to to this building, but I won't bore you with details :) I just love it... but do I love it enough to pay $100 USD + shipping for a lego set of it????
On a cheaper note. I ordered some Vera Bradley fabric from an ebay seller and it arrived today.... very yummy! I just need to decide what I will do with it???
*update* You are never to old for lego, but you can be to poor for it... I searched ebay and found it for $285!!! Santa?????

It's been awhile :)

Sorry I have not blogged, not much to share I guess.... except that it is HOT!!! So hot in fact that yesterday I swam in the local pool.
We had a great afternoon. It was 2 special girl's birthday party at the pool. (Super idea Meg!) We sat and talked, (or listened to Rach talk) for a few hours and then all went home and prepared ourselves to go out to dinner. Unfortunately it was a very disappointing meal, but the dessert was sooooo good. Pam surprised us with a huge mud cake. (to celebrate mine and Megs birthdays) Thanks girls....and husbands :)

Today I plan to.
1. Stay inside as much as possible
2. Order some photobooks online
3. Possibly sew or scrap
4. Late in the day I need to garden... actually it is early now and everyone else is asleep, I might sneak out now :)
Byeeeeeee x

Hot, Hot, Hot.

Well we are having some hot days so I thought a photo of my Grandmothers cactus was appropriate. This is the first time it has flowered and it is so delicate.
I spent last night scrapping as part of the Scrapbooking Top 50 as part of the Treasure Hunt Bingo.
I was the winner!!! Very exciting. Top 50 always has the best prizes, Thanks V!

Tomorrow is a busy day. Shawn has guitar, library and swimming with the school and Liberty has preschool. I am meeting up with some friends for caffeine in the morning, then I am off to do some Christmas shopping with Matt. Afternoon tea with my Mum and Grandma. I will also turn 33 tomorrow... Hope there are not 33 candles on the cake, it is hot enough!

Miss Thang!

After work today I did a few things in town and then came home, ipod blaring :)
We spent what was left of the day gardening and general outside stuff, as you do this time of year. Then once we were all hot and needed cooling off we went to the pool. Liberty's first trip this season, Shawn has been going with the school. She loved it!! It helped that she had twin boys from her Preschool following her and calling her name begging for her attention.... I mean with eyes like this, is it any wonder :)
So now dinner is done, children are clean and I am hiding out in the hammock chair. I can hear a lawnmower, 3 different bird calls, the neighbours showing visitors their garden (it is impressive), the odd dog barking and the occasional car. The sun is a warm orange colour and there is a slight coolness to the air... I LOVE this time of year!

Sky Watch Friday

I captured this silhouette of the Jacaranda tree at Green Oak the last time we were there. The tree is huge when you look at the size of the house.
Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone!

I am a lucky girl!

Not that I really believe in luck... but if I did then I am a lucky girl!
My super Friend Rachel gave these treats to me yesterday. She found them when she was on vacation. A huge bag of crayons and 2 Red Velvet Art books. I love that shop!!! Rach found them at a second hand book place for a bargain! Thanks for thinking of me Rach x

More of Alice

Guess I don't really have much to share if I am searching for images to use... The camera is having a rest and so am I.
The last few months have been huge for me/us. I have a wedding job in a few weeks and the P&C street stall to get through and then I think I am pretty much all done for major commitments this year. Touch wood!!
I have done no Christmas shopping... and that is not like me, usually I am all organised by now.


This is another pic I took last Saturday of Alice. She is on my new bath mat waving :) I have not really played with this image.

I am off now to create some photoshop invites for my Grandmothers 80th birthday. Night x

A Beautiful Family

Yesterday after work I had the great pleasure of taking photos of Baby Alice and her wonderful parents. They are super to take photos of!! :) This is one of my faves. Look at her tiny hand.... Alice is 19 days young.
Last night was also Matt's sisters 50th. She is such a lovely person. I spent the week creating a scrapbook for her. Such a big job, but the only time I complained was when I looked at the mess.... For such a big job in just 4 days, I took over the dining table. I finally finished Friday night and was too tired to pack up. While I was at work Saturday, Matt packed it up..... How super is he! (He must have been sick of looking at it!)

Copeton Road Trip

This is Copeton Dam. It is currently holding 11% of the water it should have. Such a sad sight. This is where I learnt to water ski, approx 14 years ago..... Probably in the spot where the photo was taken is where we would ski.
We stopped at Copeton Dam on the way home from Bingara after meeting Alice. Alice is the newest edition to the Myhill family. I will share pics soon.
Enjoy your day where ever you may be x
