7 Things

Well...here I am, having been tagged by Mel, who also has been called Our Very Own Aussie Martha, at http://www.melsroseplace.blogspot.com/ This is how it works...post a link to the blog that challenged you and add these rules to your post: Share 7 things about yourself. Challenge 7 other blogs at the end of your post through naming their blog and post a link to it. Let them know they've been challenged by leaving a comment in their blog. So...here goes, I have just chosen 7 favourite things for now...

...Summer is my favourite season of all!!!


...I thoroughly enjoyed cooking a simple dinner last night......of a creamy chicken curry with accompaniments...my first real cook up since surgery...and a cold bottle of Moscato...


...I really appreciate hand made...


...Further, I enjoy the lather of hand made soaps...

...Thoroughly enjoy my books in a nearly new book case...

...Love timber... the smell, feel, texture...this one is a set of salt and pepper grinders made of sassafras and purchased in Tassie... standing on an old banker's desk...

And would you believe it...I have just wiped out a beach shot!!! Which was...I can't resist a Salty Blue Day!!! And...just for trivia...I am enjoying the gadgets/widgets available (can't you tell!!!) Have even added a playlist while I'm here reading everyone's blogs!!! I do think of Coco Chanel and ...as you walk out the door, take one thing off. I can't help it...I seem to be the type to...add another one!!! Oh well, more is more!!!

Now, I would like to tag these wonderful bloggers that I enjoy and would like to know more about:
