Sensational! These are the very first flowers to grace our Faery Grotto. It is a shade loving vine called FraserIsland Creeper (Tecomanthe hillii). Not too many flowering vines like shade, so I was excited when I found this in the Templex Nursery at Algester, over a year ago. This is the first time it has flowered, and I must say, I'm pretty pleased with it's performance! Loaded with buds sprouting from the main stems! Looking a bit unusual...so it fits nicely into the scheme of 'wierd and unusal' plants in the Grotto. We have the bat plant, and two pitcher plants called 'hot lips' and 'gothica' as well as the 'upside down fern' and 'babiestears'. Our little 'Sneak' watches over the Grotto along with 'Foxglove' the pixie and baby dragon. A bit whimsical...is our Grotto.
My hands might only be small, and not too elegant...but God made them creative. Hence, I will never have spare room in my house, due to all manner of craft items that have caught my attention. I find immense delight by being creative. I also love to draw. I just love creating. Having discovered etsy, I can create to my hearts content. My daughter, Jillian, prompted me to join with her in an Etsy store, and the two of us have been as happy as 'pigs in mud'! She is my kindred spirit...the woman I had asked God for when I was a young woman. I had waited so long, and wondered if He was ever going to answer my prayer when, one day, I turned around and found myself looking into her face....I just had to wait for my daughter to grow up! The other joy and delight that ranks high in my life, is our little granddaughter, Amazing elliana Grace. I could not have dreamed for a more enchanting grandchild. She always brings a smile to my face, and warmth to my heart.
a cup of tea made in a pot with loose tealeaves and a simple ham sandwich with real butter and freshly baked bread and freshly sliced ham. These two items always remind me of my sweet childhood days spent at nanna's house

Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting at the end of a long day makes that day happier.
