Hello, thanks for dropping in .
Here's a little round up of what I got up to today.
First I'd like to share the love............. of Op shop finds.
This beauty I picked up for 50 cents today.
I couldn't leave it there, just look at all that toadstool goodness.
A lovely cotton tea towel with plenty of dish drying years left in it hehehe........
My tea towel collection is growing and I'm worried I might have a slight addiction.................
Mind you, I don't bring home any old thing, it has to have an appealing design and feel nice to the touch...........
A selection of woollen jumpers which I have just washed and thrown in the drier to felt and now I'm just finishing them off in the sun.
When inspiration strikes I will have plenty of choice from which to make new tea cosies or wrist warmers.
The pic doesn't show the gorgeous jewel bright colours, cherry red, hot pinks, orange and a range of lemons..............
Let me introduce you to this handsome fellow who hatched last December.
In the last couple of days he's felt brave enough to eat wheat directly from the scoop I'm holding.
As chickens I couldn't get near him and his siblings.
Mum was very protective and would rush at me, wings outstretched and I wasn't going to push it.
He's a Wellsummer X Dorking and his markings make him one very striking rooster.
He has a 'brother from another mother" lol, who is a Wellsummer X Barnevelder, so he's a lot darker but with beautiful greens and purples reflecting in the sunlight.
Problem is I really don't think we can keep two roosters.
Whilst having hatched and grown up together, there's a bit of male testosterone coming to the fore and some argie bargie taking place in the chook run.
They have started crowing in the last couple of weeks and I love hearing them. I think if you live in the country you need chooks and a rooster.
If I have to sell one, it's going to be a very difficult decision..........
Well, it finally looks like hubby and I may be going on a little holiday next month.........
It's been four years since we took any major time off work.
I am certainly looking forward to it.
We haven't yet planned our itinerary, so if there are any Tassie bloggers who would like to suggest some wonderful places to visit, things to do, markets to see, coffee shops to haunt during our week to ten days please feel free to let me know.
To all those who commented on my last post, thankyou for the 'thumbs up' on my Emu needle book. I will be whipping some up for my next market stall.
The week is almost over, aren't they just flying by?
To all the Aussie mums and those overseas who are celebrating have the loveliest of Mother's Days on Sunday, enjoy your day.
Thank you all for stopping by to say "hi"
Till next time, take care,
