Beautiful Beaches

First week of School, first week of back into routines, so of course here I am sat at my computer flicking through our holiday photos whilst I should really be tending to my neglected chores………

But honestly I would much rather be here reminiscing the fun, relaxing times we had with family and friends, taking in this beautiful scenery…………………….

Sunshine, bright blue skies, mountains, and endless clear beaches……………………………

Grateful to be able to get out and about and enjoy exploring this spectacular Island home we have missed………………………

We have been doing a bit of exploring lately, some camping, some day trips out and about to get off the beaten track, I will think about these trips today, and the smiles on my little ones faces as they explored the World around them, they are back at School today, learning and exploring again, and hopefully they are still having an amazing time, and have huge smiles like they did yesterday on their first day back into it.

For me I am off to do those chores, take care xx

New Year 2015

Wow!! I cannot believe it has been a full year since I blogged….. so much has happened and I am not sure where to start!   I have settled down at my computer with a hot cup of tea, and have been reading my own blog posts from this time last year, where it seems I was busy knitting Christmas gifts and living in Western Australia.   The biggest change in my life in the past 12 months would be the reason for my blog absence, we made the move from Western Australia all the way back to our small Island home of Tasmania, it was a huge decision, an unexpected decision, and we have been very busy ever since.

I have been missing my blog, which I had to break from due to no internet whilst in transit, then we lived in a caravan for quite some time once arriving here in Tassie, and my internet access was extremely limited.  I have been keeping up with my instagram feed however, and love to go back through my feed every now and again to look back over our journey.

With a New Year beginning, I have decided to make time to get back into my blog and am rather excited as I sit here and type, looking out over my very own vegetable garden, which has just this week started to flourish with peas and beans ready to harvest, tomatoes on the vine growing nicely, zucchini, pumpkin and capsicum in flower, and carrots all in rows.  Something I have dreamed about for years, providing for our family in our own back yard.

This past year has seen lots of change, and some of the same things……..

Knitting as always……..

A bit of exploring, and sight seeing.  Getting reacquainted with this pretty and very scenic Island we now once again call home.

We have just returned back from an impromptu camping trip, which we truly enjoyed with great friends and family.  I love the holidays, wonderful time of the year, we enjoyed an abundance of sunshine, fresh sea air and relaxing by the seaside with our little ones paddling in the water.

Now we are home sweet home, refreshed and relaxed, however it might just take a little adjusting to get back into the routine of home life…..

Thank you for reading my blog, Take care xx

Beginning a New Year

Oh my how busy has the last couple of months been, I have not had much time to sit and blog, I still have some Christmas posts to do, we had a wonderful Christmas here and I am hoping to blog about my Christmas makings soon.  I get to share all my creations now, as they have been gifted and there is no need to worry about giving the surprises away.

Today however I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, a fresh year beginning today, how exciting!

I must admit we were sound asleep before midnight, we did however pop along to the family fireworks being held on our local foreshore.  They were amazing, as my sweet boys declared “the best fireworks show ever”.

Beginnings

hearts

For a while now I have thought about beginning my own blog, and decided now was as good a time as any to take the plunge.  I only really discovered the creative blogging community within the last two years, and just recently started to actively follow blogging.  I am finding so much inspiration through the blogs that I have discovered and look forward to new posts and updates on projects.

A little bit about me, I live in the Australian outback with my Hubby and two small sons whom I absolutely adore.  I love to create,  sew, crochet, stitch, bake, and to try to capture life’s moments through my lens.  The name of my blog came about as I live in the outback but when my mind wonders it automatically goes to the sea, the sand, and the treasures that are seashells.

I make craft items when I find a spare moment or two, and when I get enough items together I head off to the local market with them.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward to this journey into the blogging community.
