Fire in the Sky

I have decided to try and get back into photography again, especially landscapes (an achievable New Years resolution I think). I would love to have a collection of industrial photographs and farming landscapes. Farming is important to me as it is my family heritage. My Mum grew up on a crop and sheep farm, which my Grandparents still have.

These photos are of a stunning sunset at both my Uncle's farm and Grandparents farm. You do not get sunsets like this in the city. You need open space to truly see the sun set the sky on fire.

All Wrapped Up

I have finished wrapping my Christmas presents. To match my silver and teal theme on the tree I have used silver paper complete with dark blue spotted ribbon. A little blue bauble adds a nice finishing touch don’t you think?

Lady of the Night

My favourite flowers are irises, tulips and daffodils. I have tried growing these in pots for the first time. This spring I produced one lovely  purple iris and a stunning deep purple tulip. It is called something like Midnight or Lady of the Night. I like that.  And I have managed to kill two Venus Fly Traps along the way….

Ropes of Crystals and Pearls.

I admire the fashion from the 1920’s and ‘30’s. It was so glamorous. I especially love the jewellery the women wore, all the ropes of crystals and pearls. I must get my bead stash out and do some creating...

Here are a few of my favourite pieces.

Oh Christmas Tree...

This years theme for my Christmas tree is teal and silver. One of my favourite colour combinations for Christmas at the moment.
