Look what I found in the supermarket this afternoon! These pumpkins were reduced to 10c and came in a "Carve a Pumpkin" bag. When I arrived home yesterday there was a note in the letterbox enclosing an orange ribbon and asking people to display it if they didn't want children coming in for "trick or treat".

Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!

Feathered Friends

Look who came for a visit this afternoon! Isn't he gorgeous! This male King Parrot and his partner are frequent visitors and this evening I was actually able to get quite close and get a few photos!

Dichroic Glass Pendants

I have actually managed to do something art wise at long last.... I have managed to locate all my glass and have been playing around creating some cabachons to turn into pendants, and I also made a bird nest copper pendant with freshwater pearls for a friend who breeds poultry - but I liked it so much I kept it and will have to make her another! lol

Daylight Savings

Hope everyone remembered to put their clocks forward this morning!

Here are a few pics of some of my regular visitors, a couple of Rainbow Lorikeets. The weather wasn't too kind, hence the poor quality of the pictures.

This is one of the wonderful birdnest ferns that is growing in my back yard. They are amazing plants - I'm lucky that I have such a fabulous established garden... I just now need to learn how to care for all the plants!

I took the following picture from the back door a couple of evenings ago.... pity about the reflections.... I must get out of bed early and try and go to the beach to get a sunrise over the ocean....

I have been working with glass and will upload some of my latest pieces once the camera battery has recharged!

I just had a pair of King Parrots in the bird feeder out front. They are beautiful birds.... however, I wasn't quick enough to get a picture. So here is a photo I took of Baillie instead!

When driving home from work yesterday evening, I was lucky enough to have my camera and took the the above pic of the sunset. It really is pretty down here.....


This little guy is such a character..... although when he sees a camera he just wants to get a "close up".
