sunny holiday days

They say all good things must come to an end...........and its back to work for me tomorrow! Just as well I like my job! After all the Christmas excitement of having our lovely girls home and the handcrafted xmas gifts it was off to the beach to our lovely wee crib for some R and R! The weather has been exceptional!!! really hot days and the sea felt warm. waves to bodyboard in on!! and a drive to a great beach we hadn't been to before, along with a great cup of tea, thanks to our adventure loving Thermette!  The Library at Riverton is a really good one, so lots of happy reading. Some stitching was achieved and the spinning wheel dusted off!
Today it was back home, the Christmas tree and decorations put away for another year...everything looks so bare ! might have to put some fairy lights up somewhere to keep that holiday feeling going!

every crib, thats the Southland name for beach house, needs a lighthouse!

little owl and green hat crafted by older daughter!!!

a gorgeous woollie collar and a hat just waiting on cooler days
and a beautiful summer clutch and now its off to bed, the new week is about to start! and this post has taken a while!! its a bit tricky at first, especially when your sailboat fairy lights  float to a place they want to be!
