Holidays to recharge

Need an idea of where to go on holidays?

We just returned from a 10 day holiday to Noosa, (Australia) and although I have been to Noosa before, this time I really loved the beautiful weather and enjoyed walking every morning.

I’m an early riser but in cool weather I find it hard to get motivated in the morning but while we were away I would have my morning coffee and then I was off for a long walk through beautiful green streets and along the glorious beaches and finishing it off by 200 steps up a hill to our apartment…..it was just such a lovely way to start the day.

Even managed to see a koala in our street.

Being back home now I so miss the warm sunny weather.

3 of my favorite DIY

Family Tree

I thought it would be fun to share some areas of our home where I’ve been creative, over the years.

 

Family Tree:

A few years ago I started to trace our family tree, and was able to get some photos, mainly from my husband’s side of the family….my side is a bit complicated 🙂
And decided to use the photos as the family tree.
I started with my husband and me in the middle and then visually split the wall in half, working up the wall with my husband family tree going up one side and mine on the other.

 

Mosaic Mirror:

I made this mosaic mirror several years ago, and considering it was my first attempt at doing a mosaic I am very pleased with it.

I actually made it specifically for this spot but when it was completed it was so heavy that my hubby had to use super heavy duty hooks to hold it in place.

 

Trip memories:

travel momentos
These two pictures are our memories of our Fiji trip. I bought these handmade cards at a small Fijian market. When we returned I wasn’t quite sure what to do but knew I wanted to somehow do something with them.

So I ended up framing them in a bit of a pattern.
