these pretty posies are an old style rose I actually grew from a cutting....one of only two successes I've had
marigolds will always remind me of our visit to Nepal last year....they were everywhere
such a pretty view first thing in the morning

I've had a little break from blogging this past week.....I wonder if I overdid it a bit during blogtober and now have nothing much to say!! on the weekend we went to coffs harbour and coming home via glenreagh saw this wondrous creature!!!! i've been watching him come to life over the last few months and now he seems complete next to his home the golden dog hotel at glenreagh. if you're in the area you really should stop for a quick hello......woof, woof!

well blogtoberfest has come to an end and i'm glad to say i've hung in til the end. I did miss a few days but I managed to post something most days which has been a much better effort than last year.
so thanks so much to cathy for organising blogtoberfest once again....couldn't have done it without you xx. thanks to those who have stopped by here and posted a comment or even just popped in to have a look.
I have to say that i haven't got around to looking at everyone's blog who has particpated (there were so many!) but i hope to still do that over the next few weeks. but i have really enjoyed seeing what others have been up to this month.
a final photo memory for blogtober

do you have green frogs at your place? we do....i've read that it's a good sign of a healthy garden. I hope so 'cause i've been working hard in my garden this last couple of weeks. anyway, these little fellas (or girls - who can tell a girl frog from a boy frog?!!) are showing up on our window sills, steps and railings each evening and sing their little frog songs to each other whilst checking out what's for dinner - usually bugs who are silly enough to come too close. here's a couple of snaps I took tonight with my phone.....do you like the googly eyes?!

I found this cute as a button tea set a couple of weeks ago at one of my regular op shop stops. it isn't complete - i'm sure there would have been a teapot with it originally - but I still love it. the china is super fine and its perfect for playing tea parties!

I have been on leave this week from work while James is doing his HSC exams. now what else is a girl to do whilst sweating out exam times than go op shopping?! and there have been some good finds.....oh yes there have been many good finds! yesterday I found these gorgeous cotton white sheets with pretty embroidered turn over ends. so soft from many washes but still in lovely condition. today I washed them and hung them in the sun to dry.....and a little cat just had to get in the picture. such a celebrity! and now they are ready to put on my bed....mmmmm!
apologies for the absence of Wednesday words yesterday.....I was a bit wordless after a very long day.
