Chilly Winter Day in Melbourne

Today has been another chilly Melbourne winter day... the heater has been on all day... we even fired up the wood burner heater too - love the smell of wood smoke!

I want to share another Shoebox Swap - this one was made by my lovely friend, Barb. She designed this as a little bag to hold a few cards as a gift. It was lots of fun to make and decorate.

I love the colour combination - here's a close up on the decoration:

Treasured Moment: It's been cold and wet lately, and occasionally I put seed out for the birds, so today I went outside to spread some seed and my normally friendly magpies were extra friendly today. They couldn't wait for me to spread the seeds - they had to take it from my hand. They ran along the closest branch and took the seed right from my palm. I was so excited! I love birds in the garden.
