Oldies, but goodies

Sorry!!! I have been a bit busy, life has been getting in my way lately!!
Monday saw us in Dunedin , I had to go see a doctor about joint problems I've been having, seems I'm a bit of a medical mystery!!
Tuesday we were in Oamaru, I had to have a few tests done and Andrew had his regular visit to the podiatrist.
Wednesday we had planned to be grape picking, but woke up to last!! I thought we were never going to see rain again, cannot remember the last time it rained here! Anyway was a lovely change and it also meant that we got to stay at home.
My Uncle come for a visit and had Cd's of old slides, so we spent a good part of the afternoon looking at those. I now have a copy of many of the old photos...woo hoo....plenty to scrap :-)
I would love to show you all of the photos...but don't think I would have enough mega bites on my blog , so will just share a few...
Hehe, That's me when I was about three, grubby looking thing aren't I!

This dapper looking couple are my wonderful, much younger dad and mum.

Check out the rainbow of colours! This photo is one from my dear Aunt Rosa's wedding, my mum is the flower girl in the lemon dress.

I love the vibrant red crab apples in this photo of my wonderful, sadly departed grandad and I am itching to scrap this one!
Thanks Uncle Jim for the photos, and Thank you Auntie Rae for the feathers you sent for me.

Already I have one of these photos scrapped...hmm which one do you think it is??
I will show you my page tomorrow, as I have a huge mess...again, in my craft room and need to have a clean up and get some shut eye!
I will be back tomorrow.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that it was our 2oth Wedding Anniversary on Wednesday.
Sweet Dreams to you all xx

Those photos are just awesome. I really love the one of you with that very old fashioned bottle. I hope all is well with both you and Andrew - healthwise.

Take care

Congrats on your 20th Wedding Anniversary! And hope you're feeling better soon!
I think you scrapped your photo first! It's so cute and sweet! I don't have colored pictures of myself (am I that old already?), only black-white ones. I love the way you look at the camera! Just adorable!

Here is my finished latest painting

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
