Bower Bird? Nah..just love bird’s nests.

I do love them and when the over grown creeper got cut back this gorgeous bird’s nest was in the branches, so I cut it out to keep it. I couldn’t resist dressing it up with some pearls.

Birds Nest

I was lucky enough to get some fabulous bits and pieces from my Aunt a while ago and I intend to sew them onto a bag or something special…just haven't don't it yet.

Birds Nest (2)


I love roses… Aunt told me to pick myself a bunch of roses the last time I was there visiting her…..

this one is magnificent!


This one is a beauty too……Love it!


This one has the most amazing scent….like the real old time roses used to smell, you are lucky to get them smelling wonderfully these days.



When we went to WA for my son’s wedding, we stayed with my daughter for a few days. I took over this gorgeous ginger bread house for her two boys….(My Grandsons) They loved it of course and we nibbled away at it too..Yummmm! Is it all gone yet Zoei?



I had to have a bit of a spend up the other day….I didn't buy any fabric in WA so was feeling deprived…so I got these lovely floral ones.


Of course there had to be these gorgeous embroidery scissors sitting there on the counter yelling out to me…”Buy Me! Buy Me!”. So I did hehehe Talk about cute!


So that’s a few things for you to look at with what I have gotten up to lately. I have been sketching a few things and soon I will get them onto fabric.

Next Monday over on the Among the Gum Trees Blog I will have a Christmas Freebie for you all so don't forget to pop on over there on Monday.

Hugs to all …….. Vicki

Lovely piccies on your blog tonight Vicki! I know what you mean about roses, the new ones don't smell hardly at all, you have to get heirloom roses for the scent! I remember my grandma's roses scenting the whole house - wish we still had them.

Gorgeous fabric, wonderful scissors - can't wait to see what you make next!
