It's been a while

Ginger Rogers

It's been a while since I've added a post and like a few others Ive not really felt like it, this past week has been testing on the spirit. After reading dandelions blog and seeing the most beautiful kiss, I thought, right lets do this..... So, last week I purchased a beautiful hand painted Edwardian mirror from a dealer in town and also came across some cigarette cards of movie stars, that took me back. When I was a little girl I loved seeing Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance like it was easy and of course any movie with Marilyn was high on my agenda. My Nana worked at a movie theater in London where she collected postcards of stars from the 1930's and 1940's, I loved looking at them so much so it was a bit of a joke. On my 21ST birthday it was Nana's gift to me...... what an amazing present to get. There are over 80 true photos of movie stars from the times, I still love looking at the albums, so I have posted a few for your pleasure.

congratulations and commiserations

Harvey Benjamin Tiger
Booties for Harvey

On Friday 6Th February good friends of ours had a little baby boy. Harvey Benjamin Tiger both mum and bubs are healthy and doing really well, we would like to welcome him with open arms, and will look forward to seeing him grow.

On Saturday 7Th February the worst day in Victoria's history for fires was reaping havoc in most areas with King Lake and Marysville being the worst hit. I personally know the devastation fires can have on Family's, in January 2007 we lost our family home and property in the Grampians fires and my husbands family lost their home in the Ash Wednesday fires. My heart goes out to all the people that have been involved in the fires and have experienced loss of property and life.

Too Sweet

I popped down the street yesterday and found some more embroidered linen and when I got home could not help but make one up.....

look at the detail and how fine the embroidery is. They will look very special on someones little toes.

Mum knits

My Mum is good at many things, sewing, cooking, creating and knitting, just to name a few. She's made Lilliana some beautiful things and one is this amazing cardigan that she's only wore a few times this past winter. I am hoping for a new one this coming winter..... Maybe in the wool that is giving away! he he he.

Tags away!

I've been tagged by the lovely Dandelion to place the forth photo in my forth album on here they are. These photos were taken at the Collingwood Children's Farm on one of our many outings there before we moved to the country to have the experience every day. I now have to choose 4 people to tag, however in doing so I will have to name people who have already participated. So if you read this and feel like joining in please do. x
