It's Sunday and the end of the week already and as I said in my earlier post I was hoping to get some time this week to stop and smell the flowers but life threw us a few curved balls and the week went by in a rush.
Our fellow Australians have been battling different elements of weather from heat, to cyclones and flooding. Contemplating losing your belongings and in some instances your entire home and even loved ones makes you think about what is important in life. I know that a number of my friends have been asking themselves the very same questions. For me I have always known what is more important in my life but sometimes you lose sight of it because "life" just takes over with the things that really at the end of the day don't matter. It is a timely wake up call.
So this morning instead of doing the vaccuming and making the beds I took some time to sit and reflect on the week that was and thought I might share a few happy moments this week.......
I had a new friend arrive. Do you remember me telling you that I had a friend on her way? Can you spot her on my shelf?
Meet the gorgeous Ellie...... Ellie comes to me from the lovely Julie over at Bears and Old lace. She is hand made from Mohair and recycled fabrics.
Isn't she just gorgeous? I was lucky enough to be the second highest bidder for her in one of the Queensland Flood Relief Auctions. The highest bidder did not pay for her so I was next in line and I am very pleased to have her.
Also this week I found another treasure. This gorgeous vintage jug which just had to be filled with sweet smelling roses from our garden.
And our 2 furry treasures spent some relaxing sun filled moments near my office desk. I love watching them sun themselves.
So I have finished my cakes and coffee, I have found a few projects to inspire me throughout the week and I have reflected on some of the nice things to happen in our household this week. Tommorrow brings a new week - I wonder what it will contain?
I hope you made time to stop and smell the flowers?
Love and Hugs
