Yay It's the school holidays

So excited that the school holidays are finally here we have lots of crafty things, trip to the park and beach planned and if the weather clears up camping as well. First of we went to the library to stock up on books and since the op shop is right next door we had to have a quick look, Lincoln found some great books, while I (really Alyra) got these awesome vintage dresses, the 2nd one still had its original tag on it but both look like they have never been worn an a bargain at $3ea. I have also fitted in a bit of carving over the weekend making my first spoon ever this was a little trickier then the strawberry's and the radishes but was even more rewarding to make and I already have plans to make more spoons, I borrowed some books on carving from the library and have been looking at some tools.
Last day of term Crazy Hair day

Some teapots I found over the weekend to make into pots for plants, the blue one was our kettle until a week ago when hubby left it to boil dry and the enamel all fell of the bottom of it

happy days

 Making  radishes  and strawberry's  using wood from a paulownia tree, the wood was collected from the wood pile at my dads house. I had so much fun making these, I  already want to something bigger maybe a wooden spoon...
 I went back today to get some more wood and had to have a walk around the orchard, all the trees look so amazing this time of year covered in flowers.

That time of year when every thing feels new and exciting, It makes you want to be outside. For me its gardening, spending time with my family, having naps on the trampoline, thinking about going camping (need to get this one  happening) and having fun with my children,  celebrating Birthdays, collecting so many strawberry's that you  need to freeze whats not eaten and making strawberry iceblocks

 loving everything ..
