Tea Time #8 – BYO Tea caravan

I’m bringing my very own Travelling Teahouse Caravan to Justine’s tea party this time.  It’s the most gorgeous pink caravan that I came across at a Wedding Fair on the weekend.  (If you’d like to read all about my venture into the brave new world of weddings, here’s a link you can click). I fell in love with Sweet Jane’s Travelling Teahouse from…

Venturing into a brave new world

Well…today I did something I’ve never done before, went somewhere I’ve never been before and entered dangerous new territory… I attended my first Wedding Fair! As you no doubt know by now, I’m the Mother of the Bride (MOB) and my daughter S, Bride to Be, (B2B) is getting married to B, Groom to Be (G2B) in November this year.  B2B wasn’t available to attend the Country…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral – So quick I almost missed it

Ephemeral Cold crispy morning Tucked up in bed as warm as toast Chance peek out the window Beautiful sunlight streaming through the misty fog Lighting up the paddock, the vineyard the mountains With the special light of a new day. Capture the images before they go   To become just another memory. Ephemeral at its best! This week’s photo challenge is…

Awesome Autumn

Autumn is just awesome!  After my run this afternoon I was entranced by the sunlight sparkling on the vineyard next door.  The variations of colours throughout the vineyard are so lovely with deep reds, oranges, yellows and still many green leaves on the vines.  The colours won’t last that long so I thought I’d get in and take a few…

We picked peaches fresh from the trees in the garden Together with the last of the fresh blackberries My growing nails were freshened up And the grass was freshly…

Weekly photo challenge: hitting the wall (metaphorically speaking)

Hitting the wall climbing the wall who put the wall there in the first place? Metaphorically speaking the ‘wall’ can be anything that is a challenge.  I’ve hit a few walls in my life and no doubt there’s more to come.  How do we cope? That’s a personal choice we all make. I try to escape by running away (literally)…

Black and white photography challenge (take 2): Day 5

Well here I am at the end of my 5 day challenge, thanks again to Jill for nominating me.  I have enjoyed having a second bite at this challenge, as black and white is not my normal or preferred photography style.  Having said that, I have learnt and experimented more this time around and it hasn’t been as stressful for…

Black and White photography challenge (take 2): Day 3

Just for something different! Today I have used a photo of trees in the pine forest for my Day 3 Black and White photo challenge. I like the way the light is filtered through the trees and the straight lines of the rows of trees. I enjoy seeing things in a different colour and today is no exception. Here are links…
