About Me- Bird on the Border

My Photo
I am so blessed to be a wife,mum and a grandma. Our wonderful son and his lovely wife have just had a daughter. My little family complete. My husband and I both work full time. We enjoy travelling, going in our caravan, dining out and spending time with friends and visiting our children whenever we can. Oh shouldn't forget "Tess" the spoilt black kelpie. I love anything country and Shabby Chic and I love patchwork and stitching and getting together with like minded ladies who love to do the same. Just wish I had time to do more. I love catching up with friends over a cup of coffee , and the smell of biscuits cooking in the oven on a rainy day. I enjoy keeping in touch with the many friends I have met through blogging and sharing our sewing and our lives on our blogs. I love going off on stitching retreats and quilting weekends with my quilting buddy and friends. And of course I love the birds in my garden. I also write the blog for our local quilt group Macintyre Quilters which you find on the side bar.

The Last Hurrah of Holiday Pics





This is my last of the 2014 holiday pics.  Then I had better get sewing.  

We met some wonderful people on our holiday. One young couple in Scottsdale made a few drinks at the "Rusty Spur Saloon" in historic Scottsdale ( just outside of Phoenix) a pretty good time.  Hi Ashley and Chris if you ever read this blog.  Who knows one day they might travel to Aus.  I love travel ... you meet so many nice people and learn so much.

St Augustine once said "the world is like a book and if you don't travel you will have only read a page"

Thanks to everyone we met on our travels of the west coast of the USA and  at Dreams Los Cabos in Mexico because they were kind, couteous and friendly and made our holiday a memorable one.



Would you like to live here? An owl house boat ..so cool

Obviously this is where they keep the spare street lights?  Installation at LA museum of Modern Art

Don't know what this car had that the others didn't at Santa Monica beach car park...?


Vegas .... by night it is a feast for the eyes. From our room.

No not in Rome ....Shopping at Caesar Palace in Vegas ...inside 

Vegas by night 


Sardines in Monterray ....they once had the sardine cannery there.They looked like glass fish.



I love it when I find a Christmas shop...of course I bought something



The Rusty Spur Saloon ... we later met Chris 

Ashley and Chris at the bar....before we met (right)

Just loved this old Saloon bar a mix of old and new 

And the reason we were prompted to travel....Scott and Iris's wedding
Congratulations to the happy couple ...Scott is the son of a very good friend of ours. Iris is from Mexico.






A beautiful wedding
The end of a fantastic holiday  and the photos ..the way we spent most days at "Dreams" Los Cabos..Cheers friends
