Thought this an appropriate post as Kirstie has her first day back at Uni today, she left the house at 6.40 this morning and dropped her brother at basketball training, then she would have picked up a caramel latte at coffee, tea and me and started her day .....She has had a wonderful summer, full of so much joy, fun and happiness.  Her and I are just back from a magical week in Melbourne, an amazing and vibrant city which reminds me a little of Europe... I was very blessed to purchase a new camera while visiting this beautiful city so Kirstie had a little play with an art setting on the streets of Melbourne.  I will be doing more posts about Melbourne, over the coming days and also a give away to start the new year in my studio.  Hope you all have a truly wonderful week...can you believe it is nearly autumn !!!!!

our dear friends and the city of Melbourne


Kirstie and I are heading off to the beautiful city of Melbourne on Monday for a week of catching up with one of my dearest friends in the world (she lives in the sweet town of Monbulk) and her gorgeous family and then spending a couple of days exploring Melbourne...  So my friends we are staying on Collins street while in the city so if there is anything that is a must see please let me know... Kirstie only has a week till she is back at uni so we will definitely make the most of it....

Summer Storms.....




Fairly quiet day in my little cottage today.  Kirstie is at the coast and my hubby is in flood affected areas of Roma and Mitchell organising volunteer teams to this devastated area.....We had two storm fronts come our way this afternoon but fortunately they both by-passed us as this one looked rather nasty....I must say nature can be incredibly beautiful even just before it causes such harm....

My beautiful girl - new beginnings ......


Well today will be Kirstie's last day at her favourite part-time job at a gorgeous little lolly shop called SO SWEET!!!!  The business has been sold and is moving.... She has loved every aspect of this job from the gorgeous owner to all the wonderful little children that she would see every week.... She will start back at uni in a few weeks and has a few shifts at her favourite coffee shop but as you all know she loves to be creative and she loves children so she was thinking recently that she would like to do something that could bring her a little pocket money but also do something worthwhile... She has always wanted to sponsor a child through the organisation Compassion so what she is thinking is that she could do some art, make it into stationary, jewellery etc and each piece a certain amount would go to Compassion....  This is only in early stages but I would love to hear your thoughts....?????? These are a few of the sample pieces ?????
