Receding Waters, Treasures and Swaps........

The grass has surely grown in all this wet
Thankyou to all of you who have sent such wonderful prayers and thoughts our way over the past week or two of rain and flooding.  The waters are receding now (a bit like Noah and the Floods) and Sunday afternoon saw a flurry of activity as the sun came out in full force............ 

First off, we had a couple of kookaburras fly in and ask for some meat (they like it raw and still "kill" it before eating),.... see him sitting on the post.



With the sun drying the roofing areas, Pete took off to get more plumbing/roofing supplies and put up extra downpipes and such to take pressure off certain areas of the roof that we found did not cope well with heavy rains, and even the bees came out in full force looking for watever flowers were still around after the drenching rains - these garlic chives managed to survive in a built up garden bed.


And now, as it's Tuesday...... I should be sharing a Tuesday Treasure with you all............. So here is the lovely little doll pram Pete bought for me when we went to the "Swap Meet" in Wanagaratta a few weeks ago.  Mostly it's like a big market for guys with lots of car bits and pieces, but in amoungst it all are are a  few other stalls of knick knacks and such......
It now looks after some of my special teddies...
And now I'm finally getting to share with you about the name game swap and what came in mail for me from Shannon.   When I returned from holidays to the flooding......... this parcel was waiting for me - with 2 wrapped gifts inside... one had this lovely, very useable zippered bag and piece of lovely looking fabric - not sure just what I'll be doing with it yet, but perhaps it might even go with some of those Autumn colours in the Jelly Rolls.  In the other parcel was this wonderful mini quilt with my blog name on it together with things she found associated me with my blog - and WOW, did she get it right or what!!!!   She is just sooooo clever and has done such a wonderful job and I just LOVE IT!!!!  Thankyou so very much Shannon...... and also for the very lovely write up on your blog.
