Abstract Art is like life...what you read in it depends on what emotions you're experiencing at the time.
I love painting abstracts because the end result is always a surprise. Very rarely does it come out the way I envisioned it...more often than not, it takes it's own form and that's what I love the most.
It's like having a baby and not having found out what sex it's always fun to see what comes out.
With love, light and gratitude!

Hello dear blogsters
Previously I spoke about my new book that will be coming out within the next few months. I have created a separate blog for my book, where I will be taking a pearl from the book (as often as possible) and blog about it, indepth.
Below is the link for my new blog, if you wish to check it out...if you do pop in, please stop by and say hi or tell me your views on the article, I would love your feedback.
Thank you kindly
With love light and gratitude

Hello dear blogsters, it's been a while...I hope my post finds you all in good health and enjoying life to the max!

I have been a very busy girl, experiencing lots of life's adventures/tests and have learnt many lessons, over the last 6 or 7 years.
The lessons learnt have produced some great things, one of which is, realizing one of my dreams and that is to write and publish books. My first book called 'PEARLS of WISDOM from the oyster called LIFE, is being published as we speak. I go by the pen name of Natalie Angelheart.

This book consists of some of my favourite flowers macros, (I have taken), combined with pearls of wisdom/messages that came to me (during my tough times), which helped me immensely. It's my hope that in passing them on, they can also help others.

I take my book and pen everywhere I go and I keep them by my bed at night because I find that some of the best pearls comes through, in the middle of the night or very early in the morning.

Below is the cover I designed for my book...the photo on the front cover is also one of mine. I am waiting to hear from the design team to see if they have any other suggestions or if they think this one is the one to go with.

I am going to start a separate blog for the book, where I will share some of the messages and what they meant to me.
I'll be back to post a link to it as soon as it up and running.

Happy New Year!

Greetings, dear blogsters!

Life, this past year, became very hectic for me...with a new job as well as family.
I had much happen in my life, both good and bad, but, I survived it all and count myself, blessed indeed!

I wanted to pop in to wish you all, a most joyous, healthy and prosperous, New Year!
May 2013 bring you all...that which your hearts desire and may it bring peace, love and light, to our awesome world!

Now for a little of my daughter got married, on the I guess, there's no way, they will ever forget their wedding anniversary lol.

On the 14-12-12 my new baby grandson, (Anthony) was born, weighing in at 9lb 14oz...4.5kg.
By the was my Son's wife who gave birth., not the daughter that got married, just incase there was some confusion lol

It seems, I really have lost touch with blogger because I wanted to share some photos, of the wedding and baby, with you, but, it doesn't give me the option to access my folder, on my computer, where the photos are stored!
I have to look into it when I have more time!

Loving wishes

Greetings dear blogsters!

I knew it had been quite a while since I posted last but I never realized how long it had actually been!

I'm so out of touch with blogging, that I don't know where to start!

Ok, seeing that the reason I came to post, in the first place, was to share a few photos with you, I'll tell you why they are so special to me!

When I go through tough times, I like to go to the beach for some solitude/therapy! I find this to be so theraputic!
Without fail, every time I go, I end up finding heart shaped rocks...this makes me feel really good because I feel that my friends on high, are telling me, they love me. What I wasn't prepared for but delighted to find, was a heart shaped sea sponge and another heart shaped something or other...not sure if it's also a sponge of sorts!

This is the sea was actually more orange than it looks here!
 This is the other one...not sure if it's also a sea sponge but I was intriqued by the amazing details on it, as well as the colours and how much, it looked like a real heart, with the main artery attached!
Loving wishes

Beautiful Day Out

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all keeping happy and healthy...

Well, we are in the middle of Winter here in Aus., we are so lucky here because we still get Sunshine practically every day. Yesterday was no ecxeption!
After a week of cold and dreary wheather we had the most glorious, sunny day so I decided to go to the beach to meet a friend for coffee...

After our coffee we went for a nice walk along the board walk, to absorb the beautiful Sun's rays...It was great...instant boost of cheeriness!

You can see the beautiful Rays shining down!

I hope you all had a Superb weekend, my dear friends! :)

Even though I haven't been blogging much, you are all still in my thoughts and prayers!

About Time

Greetings dear friends!

I have been slightly obsessed with my new hobby---Photography---so it is taking up any spare time I have.
Posting photos on flickr---viewing contacts photos and posting them in groups, takes more time than I can spare.

You have been in my thoughts and in my prayers though...I haven't forgotten you!
Here's my latest post on's a photo I took at the Botanical Gardens a couple of weeks ago...and added a poem I wrote..>I hope it looks ok!

United as one
A journey begun
To a future we see
Where all are set free
I want to start
A revolution in part
One of Love and Peace
And Giving...never to cease

Love and Light Nat :~)

New Plants

Greeting dear blogster was about time I placed another post, don't you think?

I have to confess...I have taken up a new is photography. I seem to spend all my spare time on flickr now...but have missed you I thought I'd better come say hi!

I thought you might like to see these plants, my husband brought home the other day...for those who don't know these, they are cabbage like ornamentals...they look unreal (literally speaking) and I just love them to bits...I hope you do too!
Although I like the colour of the one above...I do think the one below show the leaf details better!

If you want to see what I've been up to on flickr...just click on my flickr link and pop in to say hi!

I apologise...these photos look a bit wonky here for some reason...they look so much better on flickr!

Future champion!!!

Saturday we went to watch my son's soccer game.
It wasn't the best day but there some clear patches.
The photo I captured here happened because I saw my son change position from defence to they were 1 goal down...I knew instictively that he was going to shoot a goal...I saw the hunger witten all over his face!

I held the camera facing the goal...and to my surprise, not only did I capture the goal but (double whammy...I got my grandson running with the ball...a second before he let his right foot kick a great kick (he is only 3yrs old) to my daughter (who's out of the picture...she was on the right of the photo).
He has definetly inherited his father's gift!

If you look closely...the ball is at the back of the son is the one in yellow top, at the front, bending down for his victory...whatever it is they do!

Beach timeout!

Hello my dear blogster friends!

Last night, my daughter Mina (from Sugar Baby Creations) and I went for a lovely bit of 'timeout' at the beach (our favourite place to be)...we'll call it timeout but it was more a photo shoot...we both love photography and nothing give us more pleasure (and free therapy) than a beach shoot!

          I have posted one of the photos I took...I hope you like it!
                  This is a photo of the Jetty/Pier at Grange Beach!
Have a super weekend everyone!

Druuuuuuum Rooolll Pleeeeaaase!!!~~~Chrystallier Makeover!

Greetings my dear blogster friends!

I am so happy to say that my project has finally been finished...(delayed by a couple of weeks due to unforseen circumstances)...I was starting to think that would never happen.

It has taken blood...sweat...and tears (literally) to do it but it's done.
I won't bore you with the details but just will say that it's not something I will undergo in a hurry...not when I don't have the time to spend on it continuously until it's finished!

I am happy to say...I am quite pleased with the end result...and with having saved this piece from doom!
This is the complete piece!

This is the inner detail of the top piece as shown in an earlier post!

Here you can see the details of the black I gently rubbed on, to give it a more aged look...I would have liked it plain white but didn't think it would suit the style of the cabinet!

This is actually, a 1930 piece that mum had rotting in the was painted brown all over with gold handles.

It's good to be back, I hope to catch up with you all, in the next couple of days!

Happy Easter!

Hello dear blogsters, it has been a while since my last post.

I have had a very busy 3 weeks due to funerals, ill health and my usual commitments.
It was around a year since my last visit to the doctor, I thought I did pretty well until a couple of weeks ago and then I was back there.
I'm happy to report that it's nothing that a couple of doses of antibiotics won't fix (even though I don't like medication, i guess sometimes it's got to be done).

Anyway onto a happier note...I'd like to...
 (from the depth of my heart)
wish you all a very,very happy Easter.


May you all be blessed with love, laughter, joy and good health!

I will be back next week with my completed project to post about...It was hard work but hopefully worth it!

Love and Light to all.....Nat xxx

My Project 3rd piece of the puzzle

Hi all,

today I worked very hard to get all the prep work done on my project...I am posting a picture to show you part of what I've done today!
2 coats of undercoat on this and the rest of the pieces!
 (Pieces... there are lots of) 
 I did ask for it when I decided to paint the inside as well.....boy that's hard work!!!
I think by now you've guessed, what my project is but the finishing has got me stumped!
I know what I want to do but tried it on an old stool and didn't like the look so it could be another week before it's finished!

If you have any suggestions...I would looove to hear them!

My project 2nd piece of the puzzle

Yesterday was my day off from my commitements (with elderly parents) so I spent the best part of the day working on my new project.
I am giving you a glimpse at the second piece. I think you will be able to work out what it is from this photo!

It wasn't a very good day for painting but I managed to get 2 coats of undercoat done!
It would've been easier for me to get my husband to do it (he is a painter) and it would probrably have been finished by now but it is my project and I want to enjoy every minute of it!
I can't wait to get this finished and see if it comes out as I picture it to!
I have tomorrow morning off so I will work on it some more.
Wish me luck!!!

New (from old) project!

Greetings dear blogsters!!!

I hope you have all had a super weekend!!!

I'm working on a new project which is probably going to take me around 2wks (could be more) of my spare time to complete.
I am giving you a sneak peek but if you want to know more, you need to come back in a couple of days when I'll be posting more clues, sorry!!!

Part one (below) has been completed!

I saw this gorgeous print at Ikea! It was exactly the sort of thing I was after.
This is glued to a piece of MDF (Particle Board). I liked it so much (the way it looked) that I was tempted to hang it up as a print.

Stay tuned for more!!!

Northern Lights/Adelaide/South Australia

Greetings my blogster friends!
At the moment in Adelaide/South Australia we have the fringe festival and the city is abuuuuuzzz.....with tourists.

 Friday night, we went to see the Northern Lights (a friend had asked me if I had seen them.....seen them? I didn't even know about them, so much for advertising) and as,  I always take my camera with me I thought I'd take some photos...but alas my battery was dead.....not to worry I'll use my mobile, all excited I get it out, go to take a photo and guess what?.....yep you guessed it, 'low battery' on Saturday off we went again and this time both camera and mobile were totally charged...I made suuuure of that!

I could not believe how many people were in the city! The traffic was at a crawl. It looked like a foreign country LOL. Here in Adelaide we can still (NORMALLY) move with ease in the city!

Anyway getting to the point, I wanted to share, with those of you who can't see them in person, these beautiful lit up buildings, keep in mind these are just your normal, old stone buildings.

As you will see in the photos, these buildings are lit up with different patterns and colours, they look so good, they look as though they have been painted that way...until they change the pattern, that is!  ( This occurs every 5minutes or so ).

These lights go on from 28th Feb-5th March,
 every night from 10pm-12am
If you would like to see MORE, there are another 4 more photos on the next page and some more on flickr, you can click 'read more' below, or click on my flickr link on the right, to go view the other different patterns.
I hope you enjoy!!!

Hahndorf (our treat)

Greetings blogsters!
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine wasn't the most exciting (very quiet one) so this morning I went with my daughters (as a bit of a treat) to a place called Hahndorf. (Around 40 min drive from the city).
It's a quaint Little town in the Adelaide hills,  Sth. Australia.

At Hahndorf they have this gorgeous cafe` called chocolate n.5. They make the best hot chocolate and waffles to die for. (Our treat when we need a pick me up).

I forgot to take a photo of the waffles,  it wasn't until half way through eating, that I realise I hadn't taken a photo of the very thing we went there for.

It had been a while since we had some waffles and as this will be my last treat for 4wks you can understand why I forgot to take the photo, I was busy savouring every mouthful.

There are some beautiful old stone buildings and lots of amazing art and craft shops at Hahndorf.
Hahndorf was established by German immigrants in Adelaide.
This gorgeous red vintage car was out the front of a craft shop.

This beautiful old wagon advertises the market.
This brought back memories of when I was a child and used to ride on the back of one.
(Back home in Italy).

I love stone buildings!
 I don't think modern buildings have anywhere near the charecter, these have!
The wooden tubs all over the footpaths add charm to the place!

This is a great tourist attraction so if you come to Adelaide go see it. It is only around 40min.,  from the city.

Happy St. Valentine's Day everyone!

This morning at church, the priest told us the story of how Valentine's day came about.
Apparently in the time of the reign of Claudius 2nd., Claudius decided he didn't want his army of men to get married because he wanted them to be totally dedicated to the army. When Valentine saw the distress these young men suffered he went against Claudius and married them in secret.
When Claudius found out, he had Valentine Tortured and beheaded. Not a good story but  if it's true, it goes to show what people would do for love! (This is a short version Google it if you want to find out more).
I hope you all had a super Valentine's day and wishing you all much love!

Happy Chinese New Year as well!

(We had a beautiful dragon, dance in Church this morning). They put on a good show!
I hope you like the clipart, I got off the net free, (Thanks to the generosity of the people who create them and give them away). There sure are some talented people out there!!!
