Fire and rain

Let your smile change the world,
but don’t let the world change
 your smile.

Good morning dear friends. I'm feeling pretty stoked on many levels: I've started my holidays, Christmas decorations are finally up, I've only just brushed my teeth but not my hair....I'm so casual! lol I'm feeling pretty blessed too because I received some beautiful, unexpected gifts in the mail yesterday.

Thank you so much Karen and Linda, I feel so special right about now. I'm blowing you both kisses and virtual hugs. Karen sent me a beautiful scrapbook Christmas card and felt tree decoration. Linda sent me some gorgeous crochet and handmaking books. I'm loving them all xx.

I have finally finished the crocheted girls bags I showed last post and here they are. They now have the buttons added and the lining stitched inside. I'm pretty happy with the way they have turned out and when I put them up for sale...there were a mountain of requests for them. So five have been sold. I'm still plugging away at some more of them. I'm hooked.

Last weekend we had quite a scare. Such  strange weather to say the least. Not too far from our house a bushfire had started...been started by someone....grrrr. You know the bushfire is a big problem when you hear the water helicopters in the air. Here are some photos of our brave fire fighters doing their best to keep us safe.

The view of the fire coming towards us.

We appreciate our wonderful fire fighters for keeping us safe. Thank you guys.

Just when you are busy worrying about the fire coming towards town..the clouds start coming in, it is now overcast and then...

We get rain, and we get thunderstorm. 
It is crazy.

I still look for anything positive in all this. The rain smells devine, it puts a damper on the bushfire, it is good for the garden, it brings a smile to me. Mother Nature came to the rescue. She didn't start the bushfire but she helped put it out.

Today I'm hoping to add to my library bag collection and make some more. I have some beautiful material just waiting to become something. 

Enjoy your beautiful weekend my friends, I am off now to wonder around the house and do the things I love to do. Love to you all.
Ciao, Anita.

Fire danger was terrifying when I lived in California too. Glad they got that fire out and that it rained! I love that bag on the right w/ the rainbow yarn the best! It's gorgeous! I'm a sucker for rainbow.

So glad they managed to keep the fire under control and you are all safe, it's beyond belief that people set these deliberately. Love the little bags, so pretty

Molto bravi i vigili del fuoco. Sono veri angeli e la pioggia li ha aiutati.
Buona settimana cara amica.

That firs sure is scary. We have had so many this year int he US, started by people, which is so crazy. People lose everything and some even lose their lives all because someone is crazy and wants to start a fire. Have a great week.
