Whenever we come back to visit our young  family, we never cease to enjoy all the lushness if greenery & what grows here die to such humidity all year round. It was so humid today that as I stepped out of the airconditioned car I thought I had smudged my glasses but no ...the humidity was so high it fogged my glasses .... below are photos of some of the beautiful moss’s & ferns growing up the tree trunks ....

This so looks like it’s on the ground but it’s all on the tree trunk ..

A Sneak Peak of Goodies Coming....

Moira Schneider

As I mentioned on my Instagram, my online shop is in the production stage, not just coming but actually being put together with the help of Suzie my niecce, who is so accomplished having studied Architecture, moving into full time Wedding Photography & keeping fit with her passion of Rowing & being in the State team competing regularly in Sydney….so I am so grateful for her insights & wisdom.

In my last journal I mentioned about what it is to rise above all that swirls around us & to bring that sense of loveliness to those around us whether family or friends & especially into our homes.  Just to go the extra mile brings such a smile or touches ones heart as does smelling roses on the journey !!!! 

We are experiencing such gentle weather for this season of Autumn which means we can be in the garden for quite some time rather than dashing in & out between showers….we have had so little rain which we so need but as it is quite cool by 4pm lasting during the night until around 10am the next day it means our flowers are still blooming & the gardens just soak up the midday warmth….amazingly so we even have little seedlings sprouting which usually only happens in Spring.  I have been able to spend longer hours outside not just in the garden but stripping some old furniture so I can renovate it….see my Instagram for progress, with pieces soon available online as well.

Keep connected to see what is unfolding & value all those who are following my progress….

Where has my journaling been !!! Well another adventure is about to being with my gorgeous Cousins & Aunt.

I always come home from my trips with the best intentions of continuing to write every morning ...  somehow when I touch down life overtakes & working for my husband who has a busy practice always take precedence, then keeping our home & garden running smoothly along with the special friends I am in regular contact with.....

Well here goes I will try again.  My bag is packed, though sorting weightage for trips is always a bit tricky as I always seem to be over & needing to send parcels home.  I need to get sorted & signed up with a worldwide courier !!!  I feel like this is a really special adventure as it is the first time I have been away with my cousins.....so very different to just catchups & cups of tea - this feel so much like the Famous Five Adventures with the children going off with their cousin George but instead of George it’s Me as I said to my cousins.  Mind you we are missing doggy with air travel.....We are hoping to have High Tea to celebrate all our Birthdays.  Ooooops where are we off to - well Bali of course.  My eldest cousin has been so many times & know her way around like it is her backyard so couldn’t be going with a better travel companion & guide.  I know we will have many laughs, talk lots & especially taking their Mum, my Aunt who is turning 88yrs.

This gorgeous photo is looking over the fence to our neighbours home - but so hoping this is what I will see on Bali.....oh what fun......

Well not disappointed - we landed safely after so many laughs before we even got on the plane - with drinks before we started along with Dear Aunt in a wheelchair that was soo narrow that she felt she might fall off .... we arrived at our hotel quite late but after a hot shower setttled well knowing we would be up & off early.

In The Race Again....

Well after numerous tries to keep up with my journaling not just while I am travelling but everyday lovelies…along with getting my online shop up and running ….the shop is slowly being created behind the scenes and should be ready within a couple of weeks, thanks to my niece who is helping me.

Sometimes or rather most days are cut across despite my best intentions of putting my studio work to the fore.  I work for my best companion who is my dear husband for 30yrs as he is in private practice and he in turn has supported me endlessly in all I do despite my random and spontaneous ways being a creative.

What makes a day different for us, our families, our work colleagues, our friends, amidst what is happening around us.  It is the little things that make a difference to a bland life and hum drum routine day in and day out.  I have so enjoyed many of the blogs and little write ups of some of the women I follow on Instagram across the world, all making a difference and bringing a certain loveliness to many lives, whether in a business or in their homes amongst their family and friends.  It’s really like a beautiful army where ones gets drawn into the beauty of so much around us, so much that often is not seen.  It like the old saying of the goodness of ‘stopping to smell the roses’…….its the little things, like notes in the children’s lunchboxes, candles lit for dinner, weekly flowers picked from the garden, little arrangements on a table, seaside collections impromtuously placed in places that you walk by to bring back memories of that last seaside holiday…..it takes courage to lift the atmosphere around us, to choose to make a difference in our family & friends lives.

So maybe think of someone who needs a lovely today, tomorrow & make it happen.  As another friend said just 45minutes in the garden can change ones thoughts, lifting their spirt for the day which flows on to others. We are accountable as to how we live & what we impart…….
