Days 219-225/366

Day 219/366

This richly coloured succulent grows in a rockery at the end of our street.  The morning sun was glowing through the leaves.

Day 220/366

These carvings are part of a memorial to a man called Harry Thompson who lived in his caravan at Shelly Beach Port Macquarie where he became a much loved and respected part of the community.  He made it his job to look after the beach area  and was named the unofficial Mayor of Shelly Beach,  you can read more about his story here

Day 221/366

Hibiscus seed pod.

Day 222/366

Two little projects I have on the go at the moment.  The first is a birthday gift for a sewing friend and the second is...???? Stay tuned :)

Day 223/366

Here is my " mad photographer moment of the week".  I was driving home from work, keeping an eye on a storm front coming up from the South when I spotted a rainbow out to sea. I pulled over, grabbed my camera and raced up the hill in the howling wind.  A pair of Japanese tourists were running the other way back to their car as it was starting to rain,  when I rounded the corner, scarf and hair flying madly in the wind. I was a woman on a mission!    I got to the top of the lookout, took this shot and camera battery went flat  :) 

Day 224/366

One project finished...turned out a bit bigger than I anticipated, but I am really pleased that I have managed to squeeze in a bit of sewing after work this week.

Day 225/366

The reno project is nearly finished, I didn't have the real tools to grout the tiles, so used a bit of cardboard and my fingers - they did the trick.  Now I am just waiting for the edging to dry so I can attach it. It's a cold and wet day today so it might take a couple of days.


  1. Love the pictures!!! Really love the first one!! Too funny on your mission!!!Scrap bucket came out nice, love the table reno!!!

  2. You're so funny Helen..would've loved to have seen you screaming up the hill... lol The photo was definitley worth it :D

    Love the story of Harry... so nice to remember him in this way.

    Wooohoo, you're on a roll too.. a finish! Good on you!

    The succulent looks so pretty with the light coming through.
    Hope you're enjoying your break xx
