Weddings in 2012

 To share with my New Zealand family, we had two weddings in November, eight days between them, the first, my gorgeous niece in Melbourne.  Karen is Phillipa and Ians youngest daughter and the two littlest girls are Karens and Craigs and the older two Craigs, so instant family.

 The second wedding was in Perth, my gorgeous granddaughters, I know, all brides are gorgeous.  Jessica here with her two little sisters Kaitlin and Madison, and Joanne who looked gorgeous too.
The senior guests of honour
                      Dont always get an opportunity of getting a photo with my two daughters.
We haven't had a wedding in the family since Kirsty's 12 years ago and then we get two, oh well, one outfit does both haha

Salvage yard finds

I had been told of a great Salvage yard in Fremantle, so Phil and I took a run down there in the van.  It was a virtual treasure trove, above, sorry photo not very clear, is what I bought home.
 I have been looking for one of the mirrored doors for ages, was so excited, and the price was right.
 Out of the timber I got, John made me the star above which I had seen in a magazine and the Christmas tree below.  Pretty clever isn't he.  They look great at night too with the lights on.

 The old cupboard above was a Pinterest Inspiration, love Pinterest.  I plan to get more trailing succulents to put in there.
Mirror dressed up for Christmas.  And on that note, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Last night Phillipa and I participated in Illumini night market in Northbridge.  It was so much fun to be in an event that was so well organised and embraced by the public.  There was such a vibe right up until closing time at 10pm.  There where about 50 unique creative stalls, food stalls and entertainment.
Our stall the first one this end was at the Public Library end overlooking this great stepped area, there was a huge screen with some really creative photography played.  This was taken about 5pm and there where these great cushions on the steps that the public could lounge on to enjoy the show.  As you can see it was a very colourful area.  This is the cultural centre next to Perth city.

 The pale building to the right of this photo above is the Art Gallery and between the steps and stage is a thriving wetland area with a big frog inhabitant.  There was live music all night.
 This large snow scene was very popular with very long queue all night and great fun for young and not so young alike throwing the fake snow about.
Was so good to see live artists at work and so much creative talent
a view later in the night of the large crowd that attended.
I have been unable to blog for a while now with downloading photo problems.
Have a great weekend
