are as ship lights in the stormiest of nights.

Good morning my friends, how wonderful to be with you. Did you have a lovely week? I have the air in my lungs, my health and some pretty amazing people around me....my week was awesome. I have my wondering traveler back with me, yes, Heather the feather has returned from her holiday in Queensland. (Suze...it’s safe for you now...lol).
I have been busy also this week, getting myself out there to sell my goods over the Internet, so I set my cushions up.....
Our market day was pretty horrible yesterday. Our town had a nasty wind storm with several attributes to it come through. We had wind, rain, sunshine, wind, rain, sunshine....in that order. It was crazy. Many of the stall holders just sat there in their vehicles, not knowing whether to set up or take off. The weather was really that weird. Most of them left, but for some of us, we stayed.
Most of the morning Heather and I just held down the legs of the tent!!! We did have the back of the tent tied down to the car and pegs hammered into all of the legs. The wind was so strong ‘when’ it blew. We had another friend with us in our stall, and Bruce held down the other leg! lol
Lol...this is what I call “Laying down on the job!” When I
returned home from the markets, this is what I saw over the road at a neighbours house. I have to tell you my friends, that cactus is a huge fellow and it’s down from the strength of the wind.
You have to take the good with the bad and another good
thing is that I found a lovely Italian man here in town that made two gorgeous statues for me. I am over the moon, they are lovely. I show you just one, as she is in the better place of the garden. My space in the yard is really beginning to get the feel I want.
While I’m in the moment of the garden, here is my plant
cascading from a pot on a pedestal. This is in the front
yard and I’ve been waiting with anticipation for the plant
to grow and hang over. Perhaps my front yard will
turn Italian too? What sort of style do you like in the garden?
The judge thought her face was too cute.
Oh...and here is a gift from the lovely Italian man Vince who made the statues. A free gift he gave me.
Thank you Vince x
Un caloroso grazie a voi il mio amico,
si sono così gentili.
Well my friends, I have much to do today. I don’t want to jinx anything, but the weather looks better than yesterday, so I am hoping to get into the sewing shed and get some things done.
I have friends in mind this morning. I send out love and
well wishes to my darling Neville who is now very ill in hospital. I hope you get well soon my friend, I cherish our friendship xx. Lovely Chris, I send you love and strength. I will keep checking on you. xx
The world is full of surprises and I'm thinking after all the noise I've heard outside this morning.....Milo has some
surprises for me too. Have an awesome day my friends.
