AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

So pretty, Gemma, so dainty! I still feel new to the whole idea of shadow photography. There's so much to learn, and so many shadows we might miss.

The iron chair has intricate and impressive shadows! The seat has a radiant pattern that revolves around s star, while the back is full of flowers. Artistic capture of an ordinary item!

You know I am loving that chair...what a great color, one of my faves!

Boy, was I busy at work today, but many new people that had never been in before and many old regulars that hadn't been in yet since the move, so it's good that they are finding us again after the move.

It's now too cold to work in my new lil' shop, everything has moved back into the house, paint and tools...again!!! And soon the snows will fly, but I'm trying to make peace with the winters...ask me how it's going in a month or two, the truth will be told then.

Oh to live in a temperate climate again, where I could paint furniture outside in the middle of January...sigh, as I drag out more of the woolies that have been hidden away GLADLY for the season...they're baaack!!!

Wish you could see this beautiful blue and orange skylight right now, it's brilliant, as the sun slips away for the evening, I'm always so sad to see it go, but giddy and anxious in the morn, as you can tell from my SS.

Time to go sit and become one with the chair, been a long standing day! Have a wonderful SUNNY & WARM week dearest friend, for soon your paperwork will end...sigh again!

SMOOCH lil'sister!

Oops, sorry about the icky Spring, that's how ours was this past year. I sure hope you get some warm sunny days soon so you can enjoy your brief bits of freedom...from'll do it to ya!

Hope you find your dream calling too, it's a lotta hard work, the pay is lousy, but what a blast, even the dreams!

Be well sister!!!

Love those patterns and your neighbour has a really nice looking spot there! Adore the blue chair. I've never seen that style of chair in that colour before. Very nice and summery! Have a great week ahead Gemma :)
