Little Keepsake Necklace
Just a couple of pretty new things from my Madeit Shop
I just wanted to share with you all the new
Madeit Gift Guide Blog
It's updated daily with lovely handmade items from Madeit, Interviews with Shops that Sell Handmade & Features on some of our Fabulous Markets in Australia :)

Since my last post, we have had a weeks holidays in Katoomba, NSW Australia
I just wanted to share this picture I took of The Three Sisters for all of my overseas visitors. The first four days of our stay we couldn't even see the sisters because of the foggy weather which really added to the atmosphere of being in the mountains. Fortunately the fog lifted on the afternoon of my birthday, Couldn't ask for a more beautiful day if I tried!

Hope you all have a Delightful Week ♥

Oh Gillian! What a wonderful place to spend your birthday!Did you try the cable car ride across? I managed this a few years ago and it was simply breathtaking!

The sun shone for my birthday so just being out in my garden was extra special to me.
Love that cherry blossom bracelet...a real herald for 'Spring'!

I love the Blue Mountains and Katoomba area. It was a difficult choice between there and the Hunter Valley at the end of the year but the Hunter won out in the end.

I missed the cable car ride this time Maryann, Andrew & 2 of the children went, we have one child who is frightened of hights so we stayed on solid ground ;)
I did the cable car ride almost 18 years ago on my honeymoon :)

I'm so glad you enjoyed your birthday, the garden is always a beautiful spot to spend it :)
