We Wish You a Merry Christmas





December has flown past and believe it or not it is the day before Christmas.  My boys are on their summer holiday break so computer time is limited during the day, although those who follow me on Facebook know that I often post there.  The beauty of having a cool mobile phone  :-p  By the time evenings roll around and I can sit down for a breather I am exhausted and for the last few weeks I have also been madly finishing off some presents.


I thought I would let the pictures speak for this post,


this has been my December....










- I made some presents....









- Did a bit of decorating....


                                 
          Jellywares washcloth swap, wasn't I lucky Jodie was my partner
                                                       
                          SIBOL


- received some gorgeous SWAP goodies....



                                 Cousins
- have been doing lots of swimming, although the creek is desperately shallow.  The rains are due any minute!




- had a visit from this lovely Christmas beetle.  I haven't seen any this colour since I was a child, isn't he gorgeous....




- entered a competition and won a fabulous prize!  Ethan and I had a lot of fun taking that photo....




And here we are on the eve of Christmas.  The excitement is tangible in this house with two youngsters waiting for Santa.  I am finishing off the Gingerbread house and the oven is on so it is HOT, HOT, HOT... sounds like a typical tropical Aussie Christmas.  Family are arriving at our house tomorrow so I am in a cleaning frenzy as well, not sure why as it will all need doing again after everyone has left  :-)


I hope you all have happy holidays and I wish you many blessings, health and happiness for the coming New Year,


much love

Washcloth Swap



I joined in with Jellywares washcloth swap and this is what I am sending my secret partner.





I found the cutest little Angel washcloth pattern for Christmas and she is made of a lovely peachy coloured cotton.  I added in some of my handmade soap in Lavender and also a small x-mas tag for hanging on what ever takes your fancy.


I think my partner will be happy with her parcel  :-)

Silly Pony!



This week I was going to tell you all about my lovely neighbours and how great neighbours were a FTF for me  BUT I have changed my mind and will do that next time as this weeks FTF is this....







I am not usually a drinker but this week I was sick and my lovely husband brought home a six pack of Guinness for the restorative properties we all know it has.  After you see the next series of photos you will know why I was glad that he had....




This is what happens when a naughty little pony climbs inside the hay feeder to get to the last skerrick of hay left and then turns around to come back out and gets his big fat butt caught between the panels....




He dragged the hay feeder about 50ft before it came apart and he collapsed onto the ground....




Luckily my lovely neighbours also heard the noise and came over to help and I ran to the house to get the sedative.  It is hard to get it in the right place when the horse is upside down.  While we were trying to figure out what to do Raven relaxed and moved a bit and my neighbour was able to wriggle the hay feeder over the pony's hip bone and he was free. Nothing wrong, no broken bones, no torn skin, only a bitten tongue for being greedy....




Goodness this little man has come along way from when I first rescued him.  He was so trusting, he calmly waited for me to help him out of his mess and afterwards carried on eating grass like nothing at all had happened to him....




I on the other hand needed this....




See Guinness is good for you, for the strength of course     ;-)


More Favourite Things Friday over here and have a great weekend everyone.  I hope all our friends across the pond had a lovely Thanksgiving.

Brilliant!



 I just had to share this for Wovember as it is fabulous.  I just can't get my head around the logistics of making this.  There are some very talented people out there.


Enjoy...

Favourite Things Friday


Straight out of the oven....
Cover with a plate and FLIP....
Lift off the quiche dish....
Thats right its upside down....
Cover with another plate to make a plate sandwich and flip again....


                                       TA - DAH!

As I was making tea last night I thought 'this has got to be most favourite thing ever' so of course it had to go in a Favourite Things Friday post.   


I bought this Tupperware quiche dish about 8 yrs ago and use it all the time.  I never have to grease it and I just wash it up in the sink with warm water.


Look at how easily and cleanly that quiche came out onto the plate with just a few quick flips and a lift of the dish....Simple, I smile every time!  The quiche recipe is super easy and no fuss as well.  I like these kinds of meals.   :-)

POP over to Mrs P's for more FTF
