Pretty Pink Pictures

Well there's still not any opp shopping, sewing, crafting, gardening etc going on at the moment. Work is really busy and our weekends have been busy with other things of late!
I'm loving my Country Collections Diary! It's a week to an opening and on the opposite page has a beautiful image, which is nice to look at as I write things in and check up on what I need to do!
Here are 3 images from the past 3 weeks.

And some wise words of wisdom that just came through in an email.

Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in  trouble, but it is a "steering wheel"  that directs the right path throughout.
So a Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on.
Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.
All things in life are temporary.  If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.
Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!
Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!
When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.
A blind person asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"  
When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.
WORRYING does not take away tomorrow's TROUBLES, it takes away today's PEACE.

60 year old wedding dress

As mentioned in my last post my Mum and Dad had their 60th Wedding Anniversary and we had a celebratory lunch at one of my sisters places on the weekend. Mum brought her wedding dress to have on display and I don't think I had ever seen it. It was beautiful, even though it had a few dirt marks around some of the edges. The lace was so fine. Her are a couple of pics of it.
The following picture is my Mum and Dad with their 2 friends who were their bridesmaids at the wedding.
And Mum and Dad after they cut their cake....aaawww!!
Here in the Riverland region of South Australia we have finally got water flowing back in the Murray River. It is flooding in some parts, but not threatening floods that are effecting homes or anything. In Loxton the riverfront road is currently closed and the lower part of the caravan park is under water. The caravan park is still very operational as they moved all the cabins up to the higher area where there are many sites as well. Here are some photos down by the caravan park.

I haven't done any craft or made over anything since November, so I was looking back on photos to see what I could show you!!  Here is a wall quilt that I made on the spur of the moment a while ago. It hangs near my recliner.

I'm sure this year is moving even faster than last year did!!!

Today is my Mum and Dad's 60th Wedding Anniversary...What a great feat in today's world.
Fortunately their health is still pretty good and they live independently in a lovely Retirement Village. We will be having a celebration lunch for them on Saturday down in Adelaide.
Here they are on their wedding day.
and a more recent photo.
It was also my hubby's 50th last weekend. He didn't want a party, so we just went out to dinner with a few friends on Saturday night and then on Sunday his family came up from Adelaide for lunch.  As he doesn't like me putting his photo on the blog, I have cropped this photo down of him unwrapping the present I gave him.
It was a 1:18 sized classic EH model car. It is amazing the detail that it involves. The Saltbush Green EH was his first car and he has always had a soft spot for it and would like to get another 'real' one some day! He has started collecting model cars, mainly of the V8 Supercar variety.
And just a simple pic of the top shelf of one of my bookshelves now that the Christmas decorations have disappeared!
