    Thanks to everyone that voted for me! I won second place. Hubby and I drove from Houston TX to Carlisle PA and back to claim my prizes. Here is a link with photos and an article. Just scroll down a little. Geico threw in a $200 gas gift card when they found out how far we were driving! We...

    I got my hair cut the other day. It was a spur of the moment thing but I knew I had to do it. I got it cut really short so I don't have to go back for a while, hairdressing salons are not my favourite places on earth. Usually it costs around $30- $40 for a haircut but this one cost $20 as it...

    Hello, I'm back again! The batteries in my camera dried up and I didn't have time to go to the store to buy new ones. DH bought some for me yesterday. I took these pix a few days ago - Saturday I think it was - but I didn't have enough power in the batteries to download them. My son was on...

    Well, I've finally found some time to take pictures and post them. This is my grandmother's china cabinet that I talked about in one of forestdale's pix threads. It belonged to her mother and she passed it on to my grandmother when she married. My grandmother was very important...

    I took this photo yesterday after I'd finished making these two hearts for my friends Kathleen and Susan. They are made of felt and stuffed with padding and lavendar and they smell divine. I boosted the smell along with some essential oil. Can you see little paper scrolls tucked inside the...

    Here it is, my new wedding ring. Yesterday was my 25th wedding anniversary and DH gave me this as an anniversary gift. I'd stopped wearing my original ring as it was a bit tight. I am really happy at the moment. Our lives are full and we are content. It can't get much better than this.

    Something Margery said yesterday prompted me to take this photo today. This is my little kitchen dresser that I've had for about 25 years. I bought it because where we lived at the time didn't have much storage space and I need a place for my crockery. I don't really like the idea of having...

    This is my favourite colour of green. It's a sort of milky green with a bit of grey in it. I made the colour myself when DH bought a cheap raw pine shelf unit and he wanted to stain and varnish it. I started mixing my colours like an old witch at her cauldron and DA DA! I invented this...

    Isn't it wonderful the way we are saved by nature. Our new next door neighbours, who have been really lovely except for this, erected a huge corrugated shed that can hold at least four cars, right next to our common front fence on the right hand side of our house. I don't like it at all but...

    I live on the outskirts of the town of Landsborough. Latitude (DMS): 26° 48' 0 S Longitude (DMS): 152° 58' 0 E (Degrees, minutes and seconds) The town was originally set up as a Cobb and Co staging post (similar to Wells Fargo) and then the railway came through and a timber industry was...

    I've missed a couple of days as I've been busy. Sorry ladies. Anyhow, we are back on the air today and my pic for September 22 is the place I feel most comfortable in the world (apart from my bed). This is my front verandah where I contemplate my world. I think here, I drink tea, I read, knit...

    I spent today working at our store. It was a fairly slow day but tomorrow will be better as the school holidays started today and it always take everyone a day to get here. I've shown you all the interior of our store, here is the outside. We are the shop called "Montville Lifestyle". The...

    I just took DH into the airport and my pixs today were taken on the drive back home. It was still dark when I left the airport but halfway home the sun started coming up over Australia to reveal another perfect day. The first pic is the crocodile sign just off the freeway.

    Yesterday I made an airedale teacosy.  For those of you unfamiliar with what that is, it's a padded covering for a teapot to keep the tea warm.  Many of you know I'm not great with home tasks but I am teaching myself to do many things that are new to me.  I've always been pretty good at...

    Yesterday I went to the mall down on the coast, it's about 30 kms from here.  The town is called Maroochydore and the mall is Sunshine Plaza - after the city I live in which is the city of the Sunshine Coast.  We are about halfway up the eastern coast of Australia - an hour's flight north of...

    I really love small things. Small flowers, small toys, small patterns on fabric, if it's small, I usually like it.  Here are two of my small treasures.  On the left is my first "Airedale Terrier" that DH bought for me when we lived in Germany - he's a Steiff toy.  He was the dog we had when I...

    One of the first things I planted when we bought this house was a pale pink wisteria.  Every spring I've waited for it to flower, last year was the first year and I got one small pendulous flower.  But this year, what a change!  On the weekend I took my early morning walk around the garden and I...

    I've been looking after an Airedale baby while my step son and dil are away in Tasmania for a few days.  Coda is six months old and is already taller than my two Airedale girls, who are 6 and 8.  She's a beautiful puppy and just as playful as a puppy should be, but she is also clumsy and loopy...

    I live in the driest inhabited continent on earth. Actually Antartica is the driest but a mass of people don't live there so it matters not. Australia's droughts come frequently and not much can be done about them. Local councils have introduced water restrictions so that you can't water your...

    Hi ladies, I'm back with my pix! I've been busy gardening these past couple of days. The east coast of Australia, where I live, is in the grips of a very bad drought. We've had a couple of nights and days of rain but it hasn't been enough yet to really soak the soil and get things growing...
