well it's breast cancer awareness week and in honour of all the wonderful women and some men aho have fought this terrible disease i thought i'd join a challenge that Diana form Her Space My Space set on her blog

I know quite a few people that this disease has touched and my prayers are with you all so without further ado here's my LO tada..........
now i'm a bit of a prude so this is as good as it's going to get LOL, i had to do a crown on this because i've always wanted one y'see and now i've got one.
I hope you like it Diana and thanks for the inspiration.

my space

this is a lot embarrassing but i looked around the lounge room and this is my favourite place.
my scrapping space, i scrap on this little chest in front of TV on Friday nights and weekends usually watching murder and mayhem on telly the more gruesome the better.
My son is appalled at the mess my little chest is in and do i dare tell you that because i'm on leave the mess is spreading but what i love the most about this little chest is that it's on wheels and i can wheel it into the craft room to hide from people

I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow ...........

Red and Yellow and Pink and Green, Purple and Orange and Blue
i can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow........
here they all are: a bit of a montage to catch up

Thank god it's only for another 4 week and then we move back to West End AND i have next week off, a whole week, well almost i have to go in on Tuesday but only cos i'm such a control freak argh

so i wanted to share my self portrait with you, i took this photo at Byron a feww weeks back but it's just so funny - i look like such a wild woman, comes form not brusshing my hair for 2 days and then it was quite windy LOL

this one was easy lol
i wanted to share my gorgeous little teacup, saucer and plate set my mum gave me oooh about 26 years ago 'sigh',
we found this gorgeous little set at a garage sale when we were living in New Zealand with my Grandma in Wellington, Mum and Grandma loved going to garage sales and most weekends would find us out and about searching for stuff (never can have enough stuff)
anyway when we were leaving to come back to Australia to live, we had our own Gargae sale and Mum put this little set out to sell, i was devastated not just because she was selling our stuff, but i really didn't want to come backto Astralia, i was 14 and had just had plastic surgery and really felt like i was finally fitting in after years of being teased (i looked different y'see, I had a birthmark on my face),
so i remember being really upset that Mum wanted to sell this little set ( funny how little things represent so much) so Mum being Mum and really quite wonderful saw that i was upset and gave me this little set for my glory Box ( do girls still have Glory Boxes these days)
well the end of the story is that i never got married LOL and i don't drink tea, so this beautiful teacup and saucer sit up in my cupboard for no other purpose than to make me smile everytime i see them

just a little bit of happiness i guess,

finally an Autumn post

well after spending almost 24 hrs trying to come up with an Autumn photo for yesterdays prompt, which i thought was way to hard in spring in Australia

I was checking my diary tonight for tomorrows events (go flylady - you rock) and last weeks quote in my gorgeous Jane Austen diary is about Autumn so without further ado here is yesterdays photo:
now to find crockery sigh oh dear

I'm feeling really tired and a little sad too, have heaps to do at work, last day in the project office tomorrow,
i've made some great friends on this project but we'll keep in touch on facebook
so tomorrow i have to pack up our office, for the move to Geebung for a few weeks and then we'll be back in West End which is very cool, i really love working in West End

actually just reread that quote and it's kind of sad LOL
