my little space

Just about to go and do a little baking as it is one of those sorts of days but I was cleaning up my atelier so I thought I would take a few pics... Happy creating, enjoying an art course, doing a little paper work all the fun things I get up to in here......:)

A little clean up and move around ....."the kitchen"



Just having a bit of a clean up and play around in my kitchen.....The timber makes it quiet dark but it does have a lot of character.... I have a large blackboard that I put different quotes or sometimes recipes on....
and I moved our large stainless steel refrigerator so the other photo is the nook that was left and has my bread maker, flours etc....  Beautiful  Sunday lunch at one of our favourite coffee shops with my gorgeous family and Kirstie's lovely young man David.....
It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.  
The light is what guides you home, the warmth is what keeps you there.

Daydreaming about the beach......

Every time I return to the coast I feel a little bit more at peace...I am not sure whether this is a very familiar place from my childhood of day trips to the coast with my family but there is a deep connection.... Where we stayed at Christmas I would walk about 5 km to this corner of the beach to watch all the surfers looking so free on their boards....This is definitely my happy place .......
doing what you like is freedom, liking what you do is happiness......

Happy New Year - home again :)


Just home from a truly beautiful 10 days at the coast celebrating Christmas on the beach with my family...  Our days were spent walking, riding our bikes, swimming and spending time taking day trips to some of my favourite places.... Kirstie had time to spend with the gorgeous young man in her life and his family as well....
Our magical family farm where I grew up has been for sale for a couple of years now so we thought we would take the hour drive from where we were staying and show David our little piece of paradise...So many cherished memories ...We got a chance to visit my favourite neighbours for lots of hugs and kisses....
I must say it has been a truly lovely way to end 2011 and I can't wait for every moment of 2012....
