Reasons to Celebrate!

My lovely and very talented friend Aussie designer Jennifer Reynolds of Elefantz has created a delightful monthly online Home Magazine which is full of all sorts of gorgeousness which could only have been created from Jenny's clever and caring hands..Jenny also has a lovely inspiring blog too.
I was very excited and honoured when Jenny asked to interview me for this Months issue of her Magazine. There is also a little freebie from me in there too plus oodles for you to put your feet up with a cuppa and devour. Lots to stitch as well. You can subscribe to Jenny's E-Zine. Pop over and read all about how to do it HERE. You will just love it. Thank you Jenny for your generosity and friendship....oh by the way on a more disappointing note after last nights 'training run' by Queensland's Maroons I owe Jenny a Cadbury choccy :( Thanks Fellas!
Speaking of matters of the Queensland variety today 6th June is "Queensland Day". Below is our floral emblem the "Cooktown Orchid" and I am lucky enough to have several growing in my garden..

Happy Birthday Queensland!!! A beautiful place in the world in which to live. A favourite spot of mine.
The other celebration worth mentioning is that on Monday my dear friend Helen and her Husband became Grandparents for the very first time and are very thrilled about it. Congratulations and much love to you all.
Welcome sweet little Amelia.
So why not "Bloom where you are planted" and celebrate your blessings today no matter how small or simple.
