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
