A quick and easy weekend craft project

If you’re looking for a quick and easy project for the weekend, this could be it! An inexpensive way of displaying family pics or holiday snaps and only four items required to complete the job! I’m going to have a shot at this. Maybe a few of my BFs (that would be bovine friends)!

After being away on holidays in my Mum’s beautifully clean and tidy unit at the coast, I came home to my own home and immediately promised myself to make this the year of decluttering! The following article popped up on my Facebook newsfeed as if it was a sign from …… somewhere! Perhaps the neat freaks have been peeping through my windows!

Have a read of this article and see if you think Rachel’s challenge of getting rid of 2015 things in 2015 is something you could take on. I’ll be giving it a try! You can read more of Rachel Jones’posts either on her Nourishing Minimalism Facebook page ( or on her website.



The Crown Hotel, Dayboro

Now that the whirlwind of Christmas and New Year’s Eve is over, how about taking some time to chill out and just breathe? A 45 minute drive could find you sitting under the shade of the weeping fig trees on the verandah of the historic Crown Hotel in Dayboro. These beautiful fig trees were planted in 1923 by the then publican’s wife, Mrs Herbert, to provide shade for horses tied to the hitching rails of the pub. What a bonus that 92 years later, we humans are enjoying the shade from these magnificent old trees!
