Hi! to everyone,

What beautiful weather we are having at the moment, maybe winter has gone early.
Should keep the jumpers out a bit longer just in case.

I invited Lee-Ann and Rob around for morning tea last week as we have all been busy,
and thought it would be nice to catch up on my day off.

As you can see I thought I would make it special. The roses are my first roses off this David Austin Rose called "Miss Alice" and the perfume is divine.
I made a delicious chocolate cake topped with strawberries. (Forgot to take a photo of that)

I am heading away this weekend, my sister and husband are arriving from Townsville on Friday for 4 days and we are heading up through Toowoomba to my brothers farm at Haden.
A quick side trip through Ipswich on the way to drop off stock to Leisa at Handmade Heaven.

Leisa is doing a great job of marketing her store which is great for all of her stockists.
You may have seen her on one of the National Morning TV shows last week promoting same.
Drop by her blog and read all about what is happening there.

A couple of photos of some new things that I have been working on lately and will perhaps be in store there after Friday. Lee-Ann also has a couple of new things as well.

I thought I would include this photo of the lady in black.
I have had this black beaded skirt around for years, and when we were at the Handmade Expo in July one of the stall holders had the painted dolls for the top, when I saw the lady in black I knew she would just go perfectly. So this is the finished result.

TTFN as they say....take care till next time..Lyn

Just Dropping By

Just posting a quick blog today before dashing off to the dreaded work.

Into the world arrived Ella Rose, new grandaughter for Lee-Ann and Danny.
All excited, both Mum and bub now doing well.

Have been busy working on some new projects for Sweet Tea and Roses.

I have been looking and making a list of the painting projects that I have around the place to do,
Can't wait for the weather to warm up a little so as to start work on these.

After working 6 days straight, with work being so busy, I decided on Sunday a wander through Bunnings was called for on the way home from work to destress.
I ended up buying a couple of new pot plants for the front verandah. One was a lovely dwarf lavender which is so pretty. It is sittting in a little wooden wheelbarrow - so cute.
You will just have to let your imagination work here as I haven't taken any photos.

Will charge the batteries for the camera and have some pics on some new products next time.

Till next blog...take care..Lyn
