A few days ago mother nature gifted us with beautiful rain! We have very cold, dry winters here in Gauteng (Johannesburg) not a drop of rain  for a few months. Somehow, our weather seems to be evolving and resulted in a small cloud burst. We woke up to thunder in the distance, I just adore lying in bed, listening to a storm. It rained solidly for a few hours and then stopped. I ran outside, camera in hand, to explore the beautiful fresh looking world, washed clean before my eyes…

We had a busy but lovely weekend spent with friends and family eating warm soup and homemade bread.

PS I’m having a giveaway on Nicole’s lovely blog Frontier Dreams. I’m offering a knitted pig called Petunia and 8 Mamma4earth knitting patterns, winners choice:)

Wishing you a wonderful start to your week dear friends.

Lunar Eclipse in the Southern Hemisphere

Last night at 8:22pm South African time, we started watching a spectacular lunar eclipse. It was a beautiful sight. We all stood and watched the moon mask into shadow and turn a blazing red colour. Truly magnificant to witness! I took some photos to share…

Black and White Wednesday

Thank you so much to everyone who wished me well yesterday, you are all wonderful supportive friends!
I absolutely love black and white photography, it lends itself to such amazing detail and precious moments are saved forever on film…  I will be posting a black and white photo each Wednesday along with my WIPs, I think it will be great fun.  I would love it if you would join me on this journey of journaling, I will be posting a photo that I treasure, it can be anything that is important to you, your family, pets, a landscape etc (in black and white)… Please feel free to leave a comment with your link of your photo so we can visit your post:) I will be adding a button on the side of my blog soon linking to Black and White Wednesday.
This is one of my favourite photos of all my little ones playing happily together…
Have a great day everyone
Linda

Portrait Saturday…

Dear Friends,
Thank you so much to everyone who posted on Friendship Friday yesterday, it was an honour to have you share your creativity here:) I will make this space avaliable each Friday for anyone who would like to share their wonderful creative gifts… 
This morning was amazing, the mist hung in the air and as I walked outside I could actually see the water droplets floating by… all too soon the sun rose and drank it all away, but what a glorious day we have had…
It was a perfect day for spinning… I haven’t spun for quite some time and I decided today was the day. Richard took the children out this morning and I had a few hours to myself. I went and found a lovely camel silk roving, sat in my workroom and spun. This roving was so smooth to spin and the colours were like food for my soul…

I spun the entire roving, it was a peaceful meditation, just the gentle sound of my spinningwheel turning…

Wishing you all a peaceful Saturday, thanks for stopping by:)
Warmly
Linda
