Made with loving care from Naturally Carol

Here is my new addition to our new home.
Beautifully hand crafted with loving care by
Naturally Carol.
They arrived first thing Friday before I left for work.
Posties here in NT start early!
I saved the surprise for that night to unwrap and
see for myself the colour and textures of this
matching couple of paisley creations.
They do look quite at home here on our new
outdoor setting in the courtyard garden.
I just love the funky (sorry this is the only description
that comes to mind!) large buttons on the back closing.
They are perfectly funky!

Thank you dear Carol for such a fantastic giveaway
on your blog that I enjoy calling in and seeing 
what you are creating in Queensland.

Enjoy a treat and see for yourself how 
talented and crafty Carol is at

Endeavour......To Strive

The Endeavour Sail Boat visited Darwin Wharf

Great to catch up on some old world charm

Such a beautiful spot they filmed here for the film "Australia"

Meanwhile fog has set it's own natural scene at the Old Town Hall

Another week-end has
arrived and I hope you all
plan to make the most of it!
I have had a bit of time to catch
up with some of my favourite
blogs which I love to do.

Hard to believe that over a 
month has passed since the big
move from SA to NT.
Our new home feels like we are
now back where we belong.
Not strange but happily familiar. 

Both Hubby and I work in the
Darwin City and we live very close to it now.
The best thing of all is that we are back near the beach
where you can get the breezes and enjoy the perfect views.
The tropical parklands and golf course are also a short distance
away. On Sunday mornings I can hear the church bells ring and
the Music and Singing of Concerts being held for the Darwin
Festival. Truly there is no other place in Australia quite like it.
The green of the Tropical gardens surround us. 
All we need to do is slow down a little to take it all in! 
Yes, we have been busy getting used to new jobs and making
our new house a home. What a great place for me to find 
plenty of photo opportunities too!
Each night hubby can pick me up from work with our Missy
Dog happily sitting in the back of the car looking at the
world going by! All I need to do is sit back and enjoy it too.
Have the best week-end xoxo

New Beginnings, Packing up, Saying Hello & Goodbye

Packing up boxes and finding Old dear friends along the way..........

Exploring new surroundings......

Finding the odd surprise?

Taking in all the new colours and beauty

Moving along to the New Next Chapter that is just starting

Do as the locals do and enjoy the amazing Sunsets that the Territory beaches enjoy

Hello to all of you.
Here we are now settled back into Darwin, Northern Territory.
4 Years living down south in South Australia have passed,
it is amazing we are back here in this lovely tropical spot.
I never expected to miss the place and lifestyle as much as we
both have.  So we are now turning into recycled locals,
Territorians Once Again!
But like everyone visiting and locals alike we are enjoying
all the beautiful sights and opportunities to be out and about while
the weather is so fantastic.
No more Winter Blues for this little Chickie!
We  have been learning our new jobs in the last two weeks.
Also catching up with friends along the way.
Already we have had a visit from our Son and his sweet partner.
One of our Daughters lives here so we have family close by.
Thanks for all the well wishes sent to me.
It is great to be able to share such an exciting time with you.
Enjoy the new photos of the area.
Have a great week and a great new Month.
August the month of Leo Birthdays.
Best Wish to all Leos!
We will all be in for a fun filled Month.
