Just clouds and cold days.

Winter is here at last, the rain has gone, the days are lovely but the night so cold, the last of the rain clouds were very striking and they kept the warmth in for a few days.
I just had to take photos. 
Our Blue Mountains are dusted with snow and snow falling down south in the snowfields it never happens in Sydney but sometimes feels like it is not far off. 








 My little outdoor heater is nice to sit by
 And I have painted the outdoor table red to cheer up the garden lots of sun up here in the morning and protected from the cold winds
 The path is still being built like a huge jig saw puzzle.
 At night knitting for the twins.
 The jacket is my design a bit odd but very different.
 The hat I followed a pattern looks almost big enough to fit me.
The shoes are very cute.

  1. Those shoes are very, very cute.
    Love your clouds too.
    We had snow on the hills this morning. And a lazy wind (which went through rather than round us) which had come directly from that snow.

  2. Twins?? Your daughter is expecting twins?? wow :)
    Those clouds are beautiful. I heard on the news there would be snow in the mountains and maybe some here in SA at the Mt Lofty peak.
    I love the red table, what a lovely bright spot to sit out of the wind.

  3. Hello, the baby jacket and shoes are so cute. It is still hard to believe you are having cold weather and snow there. I like your fire pit and the path looks great. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend!

  4. Loving your path and the red table top, and how good to have a hot brazier to keep you warm outdoors. (I did have a naughty schoolboy smirk on my face as I typed the word brazier)

  10. Love seeing those moody skies, Merle, and your new table looks great with the new red paint. Your knitted baby things are wonderful - I love your unique design for the jacket, and the little hat is so vintage-sweet. Looks like you are keeping busy during those cool winter days and nights. x Karen

  13. I have a thing for the clouds, Merle, and I enjoyed your cloud pictures. I bet that fire sure keeps you warm during the cold and wet days. I think your table looks better with a pop of RED. Those little baby booties are too cute hehehe.

    love, ~Sheri
