Life is:

trusting and taking chances,

losing and finding happiness,

appreciating the memories and

learning from the past.


How very quick this week flew by!! I can't believe we are already half way through this school term.This week was all about dolls! I have been commissioned to make clothes for a doll and I have the doll for the weekend. So I can show you what she looks like and some of the clothes I have been busy making her. 

              Come with me for a show and tell adventure....
I thought perhaps a few sets of clothing might be fun and act as a guide as to what to make. I had fun with a mix and knitting and crochet for this white set. 
 I'm not sure what happened to the camera but I was trying to show you the cute pink teddy button. White is a colour that makes me want to burst out laughing. Am I crazy? No....there is a joke at gym that if I am wearing white socks that I will be a good girl that morning. If I am wearing black socks, I will be naughty. I always usually wear the black. lol 

 A little pink crocheted number. I love this one and considering crocheting is not a strong point with me, it shows what you can do if you stick with things. 
 The bright yarn was a favourite of mine to knit with. I had enough to make several things for dolly. 
 So pretty!

I notice the sun is rising a little earlier and going down a bit later each day now...I am eager for the warm weather to start. One of the many reasons I have to enjoy the warm weather is that I can get my garden in order. My garden has little tell tales signs that it is waiting for the warmth as well. Tiny flowers are starting to pop up all over the yard.






 Milo 
Some of you have been asking about what Milo has been up to, so I will show you what he is doing today. 
Today Milo is a mountain lion....in his mind anyway. While I filled the wheelbarrow full of wood, Milo decided to be a big hero and walk along the wood heap. I let him enjoy himself on the wood heap for now because he won't be going there when the weather starts to warm up. Why? Snakes. The wood heap is a perfect place to meet one of these horrid things in the summer time. 

 Me tarzan!!

 I'm a big warrior dog! 


Oh that's how the flowers are getting flattened....I see. 

My tax return money was spent for the garden this year.... 2 trellis stands, that will be painted white (a project that hubby doesn't know he's doing yet....oops!) lol 



I already know what giving up feels like, I want to see what happens if I don’t.
 One fantastic large pot for my Italian backyard. 

 The grandest buy of all...this fabulous arch that will lead us into the dream area that will be covered with bougainvillea. Also purchased were three sections of lattice work that is pictured with Milo in a previous photo.



As I end my post today I always like to thank the lovely people I surround myself with. All of you have a special place in my heart and you are good for my soul. Everyday as I sit at my work desk my mind is always wondering back to my friends and I am amazed at how much time I spend doing this. I know it is because so many people in my life are blessings to me.
Luv you all heaps and I think of you all the time my friends.
Addio ai miei amici = Goodbye my friends!
See you next time, Anita.

Hi Anita, your dolls clothes are just wonderful, some lucky little girl who gets to play with those. I am so glad to see that Milo is keeping you all on your toes again this week ... he does make me laugh ... he is always there "assisting" you with what you are doing. I love your new pot & look forward to seeing what you do with all your new garden bits & pieces, it will be lovely I am sure.
