Making Things for ME, for YOU and for NOW

I've given up on the thought that I'll make things as I want them later... when I own that acreage... no, instead I'm just doing it now. And part of my inspiration is for sharing with others. I want a friend like me! One that makes a beautiful home and invites you to come and stay. People have been that generous to me in the past, and finally I open up my home for my friends to enjoy.

The first guests are here and they've jokingly described it as a 'nudist health retreat'... but that's just one of many ways you could use it... It is healthy and you can get naked if you want to!

You are arriving, that's an excuse to pick wild flowers, curb-side cute weeds and colour from the garden to create a little welcoming collection of pots on the dining table. Oscar is here to greet you too.

Welcome to your room. That's right, I don't have an iron but I think you'll find your queen bed delightfully comfortable and you'll wake with a sunrise that will send you back into a blissful nap of joy...

Oscar will be your second alarm clock if you're not up at 7am from the bird-chirping.

Yes you can get nude with a view of nature in the morning.

Or in the evening you can light some candles and ponder the hippy crystals...

I'll wake you up with a fresh juice, green smoothie, banana milkshake or cup of chai and a bowl of bircher muesli.

Or you could have some of Irene, Mildred and Beryl's poached eggs on local sourdough.

 There's a book collection to meet all tastes, from bird-watching, origami, spiritual classics and books on goldfish. As well as plentiful board games...

Even an art corner

if you want to sit on the verandah and draw bottles and shells

or lorikeets, black cockatoos and parrots.

Otherwise take a stroll through the garden and try to identify fruit trees. Like this one. I'm not sure yet what it is! I know we have avocado, mulberry, peach, mandarin and lime. Next door is a huge mango tree so come at the right time of year for what you want to eat.

Head down to the vege garden and pick your salad for lunch

This one includes my fresh lentil and fenugreek sprouts.

This home is on rain water and solar so you'll feel extra good.

The view is spectacular...

especially from the upstairs bedroom!

If you like you can lounge about, the purple armchair is most opulent. Or play your choice of instruments, stoke up the fire or watch a dvd...

or get inspired and leave your own special mark...
