it's a crazy kind of love...

It's been two days since my two eldest babies went back to school for the last term of the year (eeeek, that year went fast!). I have not blogged during the holidays, because like most of us Mama's, I was doing the most important role I have, being Mama!! I know at times, tempers flare and ends get slightly frayed, for both kids and parents, but I love having them home. When I look at how fast the years are flying by, I love to watch them grow. It is so nice to be the observer of such beauty, oh and of course so much sweeter as the creator!

We don't lavish our children in the monetary kind of way, we prefer simple and peaceful family activities. So for this holidays, we took long walks on several surrounding beaches, collecting shells, & driftwood and jelly fish halves (she giggles) & building palaces for our jellyfish halves of course! Darling husband was designated baby wearer, & I was the one following in the footsteps of our other children, watching them in awe! I am not so sure that these moments were quite so special to them as they were to us. But there were times that I felt emotional watching their innocence & hearing their excited questions about our world.

We made shell hangings tied to driftwood & necklaces & bracelets & all things shells...  We rode bikes, skateboards, climbed trees, slayed dragons, had picnics, watched Kangaroos feed with their Joeys, and enjoyed our time together as family...

Thanks for popping by & sticking around whilst I was being Mama!

Here is some free fun and makes a pretty night display... All you need is some washed, used tin cans & a drill, the rest is up to you, or in my case, the kids! although mine are far too young to be using a drill, they have fabulous imaginations *love*

I can visualise these outside slightly rusted, hanging from trees, or placed around the deck and looking so pretty! I have drilled some holes in the base for drainage (not too big) & near the rims to thread some wire through to hang them. Just a tip *wink*



  1. Sounds like you have been having a lovely few weeks :) Love the lanterns, very cute. Don't forget a couple of holes in the base too to stop water sitting in the bottom and going mank ;)

  2. Yes they have holes there too Casey. Yes lovely few weeks now that we are all well again! x

  3. gorgeous Rob - hanging from trees sounds divine!


Oh why thanks for popping by. It is so lovely to hear from you, so please leave your thoughts or links with Mama! Happy Days...
