Birthday at the Beach

I have been very spoiled over the weekend....
Hubby whisked me away to beautiful Noosa for my birthday. We stayed in a very swanky Penthouse unit at  The Noosa Crest - it was just lovely. The staff presented me with a bottle of champagne and gourmet chocolate brownies on arrival. The view from the roof level of our unit was fabulous! 

Our boys and their partners came and stayed one night.
Here we are walking back from our morning coffee on the beachfront.
(no photos of me - I always seem to be the one with the camera...)
The boys cooked us a nice barbeque breakfast upstairs on the rooftop level.

Hastings Street
Saw this old car parked in town. Isn't she a beaut!

Santa must be around here somewhere.......

I think this is the Sheraton Hotel.

One of the little beaches in Noosa National Park. 
A glorious day to soak up the sunshine.

A pretty native flower growing alongside the walking track.
We could hear lots of birds in the bushland around us. Saw a big Brush Turkey casually strutting past the tourists.

We followed the main walking track, which hugged the coastline. Just around the corner there were some big rock pools. The tide was coming in and there was the occasional big wave crashing over the top filling them with swirling, foaming sea water.

It was a very relaxing weekend away.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and was so happy to be surrounded by my family and friends who came to visit.

Cheerio for now,

Sweet Sunflower Trivet

My latest craft pattern has a sweet surprise.
Can you guess what it is?
The centre of the sunflower trivet contains sweet, spicy cloves.
The heat from your teapot releases the beautiful scent.....mmm....just lovely.

Out now in newsagents, Volume 14, No 8.
Cheerio for now,
I'm off to enjoy a nice hot cup of tea!

The Tiniest Visitor

Aww, isn't it sweet?
I found a baby Asian House Gecko inside, this morning.

I just had to snap a few quick shots of it before releasing it outside.

Do you get geckoes at your house?

Cheerio for now,
