Magical Horizon

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.” Dale Carnegie

One of my favourite views of Byron Bay light house (north coast of NSW and way off in the distance) on a hazy afternoon. Weather has been a bit stormy and overcast lately.

Hope you are all enjoying your Friday Sky Watching.

  • Thank you to Shirley from Reflections On Life for this ‘Kreativ Blogger’ award. It is really sweet of bloggers to take the time to say hello and comment on the creative things we share. Now it is my turn to share with other bloggers, of which there are lots of great folks to choose from but here is a few you might like to meet.

  • Joli Paquet a Christmas themed collective blog with all kinds of glittery things to make
  • Jill of Bittersweet (yummy soaps made with great care by hand) and Calico Petals creative supplies
  • Christine of Black River Designs the sweetest little paper from Saint John Canada
  • Lousie of Whispering Poppies creating unique jewellery and things on Cape Cod
  • Cathy of Simple Things who I found recently in sunny Queensland
  • Kimberlee and the Brown Button another recent find who like me is locked in an office all day but finds all kinds of interesting creative or decorative things to inspire the muse
  • Emma at White & Wander another traveller who shares all kinds of decorative inspiration
  • finally ……….
  • Sarah & A Beach Cottage (down under), if the Vinnie’s man ever finds out what she does with her shabby chic finds, the prices are sure to increase and that might drive inflation back up !

Thank you to Alison Gibbs of Victoria who was my swap partner for this year’s vintage stocking swap. Alison created a stocking from beautiful fabric with a story to tell. Just perfect considering the kind of year we have both had. The world might be a crazy place right now for many of us but she kindly found the time for detailed stitching and find a collecting of beautiful little beachy themed Christmas decorations. More photos to come soon as we have a moment and can’t wait till Alison opens my parcel to see what we found for her.

Mary Ann of Follow Your Bliss hosts vintage shabby swaps and itty bitty books regularly. Well worth putting her on your must read list to see what she is planning next.
