A Few (phew) Random Recent Scenes

Still here.
Still busy.

MAN there's a lot going on right now!!

Enjoying the current weather.
But PHEW it's getting hot!

.... random recent scenes to follow..



I'm on a juicing frenzy. Loving it.


On the door to Leo's room.. Great tea towel. 
(I've been - slowly- sorting boxes that are STILL stashed in the garage from our move 2 1/2 years ago!!!)
This is a bit juvenile for him probz now.. but I'll leave it up until he complains!

A friend was doing renos and this fell on her from  a roof cavity. She thought of me. (thanks Ton!)
Gift from above. Hallelujah!
it joins the rest of my collection. And one day I might even get some of it on the wall! 

My twin bruv and me and my nostrils.
Last year of being in our 30s has just begun!

Nice new (old) dress.
SYnthetic Symphony.

Arlo in his happy place. (dirt!)
Midwinter finds. Love.

Two of these feature landscapes/tourist attractions that have changed drastically..
(One Tree Hill, Christchurch Cathedral)
And one from Otahuhu. Random.

20c each thanks Red Cross Frankton. 

Eating outside.. a sign of summer..
Those chairs were 8 for $7..  at a Garage Sale a few months ago.
Formerly were the Drury Lane /Clarence St Theatre chairs, which were then passed on to King St church. (where the sale was)
They had a couple hundred, for $1 each that morning, or 6 for $5 etc.

Table was $10 from my local Red Cross.


HAPPY DAYS!!!

Told you this was a random post..
