Happy New Year to all.

Hello everyone, I am so sorry for being missing for nearly a year OMG has it really been that long (hanging head in shame) I have had some issues with illnes (My back) and have opened a small cafe', and am in the process of opening a small craft shop here in my home. I have a large room that is sposed to be the family room, but since my family consists of me and hubby and grown son, who lives in the flat outside, I am able to convert this large room into what I want it to be, I am at the moment painting the yukky wood panelled walls white, and all my book shelves white as well, it is coming along nicely, I will post some pics as soon as I find which folder I put them in lol.

In the meantime I can show you what I have made for a very dear freind of mine, who has just painted her kitchen all white, and is making pink and white curtains and chair cushions etc.

I whipped it up last night for her, and a few goodies I found in the after christmas sales.

I feel really bad for being missing in action for so long, but I promise I will catch up with all the lovely blogs as I get time.

I am so pleased with how this tea towel turned out, I am now making one for myself, for when I get around to painting my own kitchen lol.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe christmas and new year, and as I said I am looking forward to catching up with you all.

All the best and I hope to be around a bit more often than I have been.

Cheers Deb.

A happy new year to all

Sorry to any one who has visited me over the past couple of months, life has been pretty rough for me, with my back and one thing and another I have neglected my blog and my new blogging friends something shocking. I will try to rectify this.

I am afraid life is not being so kind to me at this time, we all have our trying times, and I am sure I will come out the other side a stronger person, but for now it is like there is no end in sight.

I have found some gorgeous flowers to brighten my day, I hope they do yours as well.


Cheers, and Happy pink Saturday my friends, I will try to call back more often, and get around to say hi to some bloggers when I sort some things out.

Strawberry cheescake

It has been a while since I was here, I have been very ill with my back, it allows me nothing, some days I can not even walk, and others I have the energy of a new puppy, lol. The heat is starting to creep in to our lives with summer upon us now here in Australia. So what is a gal to do on a lazy saturday afternoon but eat strawberry cheesecake of course lol. So grab a fork and I will share it with ya.....:)

Cheers and Happy Pink Saturday to ya all.

Its been a while

Yes Its been a long time since I have posted anything, I am sorry to those who do come to visit. I have put my back out, and can not walk very well, I need to have daily morphine injections at the moment, and needless to say I can hardly use my arms, lol, I think they will have to start jabbing me in the backside lol, it is a lot tougher than my arms, YIKES....

I hope to be able to post something nice for pink Saturday this week, I have been working on one of my dollshouses, though this one is yellow not pink, I will show you some of it, also I have been making polymer clay plants to fill a mini conservatory, I need lots and it is starting to look very nice indeed.

Most of the plants are made from polymer clay including the hanging baskets, and the baskets themsleves, I make these and use jewellery findings for the chain etc
A couple of the larger plants are made with mulberry paper leaves , but all in all I think It will be quite nice and green and lush when finished, now I just have to make the conservatory to put them all in lol.
The tiles on the floor are from Hirst Arts (R) and will be painted another colour, they are made from plaster of paris, from a mold, and are about 1 inch in size, so in real life these would be about 1 foot square pavers which is about right.I would like to get this finished soon as I have just purchased 2 more dolls houses, very large Dura Craft (R) ones, both mansions lol.

Here is a pic of some others that very clever people have built.

This one is from the very clever Tracey Topps, if you google her you will see more wonderful houses she has made.

And this gorgeous one, I can t remember where this one came from.

If mine turns out half as nice as these I will be very pleased indeed.

Cheers for now Debra.

Now I lay me down to sleep....

I pray the lord my soul to keep.
And a nice warm and soft bed to sleep in.
Tucked up between my mummy and my daddy.
I will never know what it is like to sleep outside, or in a laundry.
I will never feel the cold wind on my fur, or have to be wet and damp
and have only a tattered rug to sleep on, or worse.
I pray for all the little doggies that have to live this way.
May they too find a home to be warm and loved.
Yep I am sure one very lucky little doggy.
Please find it in your heart to adopt a little mate and save him or her from a fate worse than death, you will be forever loved in return, every single day of our lives we only want to be near you and to love you.
I am posting this tonight for mum, she is busy getting her new shop ready, won't she be surprised to see what I have done woof woof...:)

Good night
And Happy Pink Saturday to ya all.

Hymie (And mum Debra) She is the light of my life, I love her with all my heart.

I say my prayers..each and every night.
I wait for you to come to bed...

I got sick of waiting, so I will keep the bed warm for you.

Sweet Dreams

I'll give you a daisy a day dear

Just thought I would share these gorgeous daisys I picked today while grocery shopping, they were growing next to where I parked my car, so I picked a few, not even thinking that they might not survive the trip home. It is starting to get hot here in Australia, anyway as it turned out I had to go to the chemist for a script, so while there I noticed they have one of those free drinking water bottles that you help yourself to, so I helped myself to a drink and took another cup full to the car for my daisys.

It also makes for a beautiful vase, dont you think. lol.

Have a happy daisy a day dear.

I have no idea how to spell the plural of daisy, is it daisys or is it daysies. Yikes I am usually so good at these things.

Cheers Debra.
