It's my 50th Post - Yippee!!

I've been keeping my eye on the number as I knew 50 was coming around pretty soon. I'm back from holidays, and ... I'm back ... and it's my 50th post celebration. Help me celebrate by posting a comment. I'm going to have a GIVEAWAY. I'll be drawing a winner on Friday 12th October; and no, I didn't make a cake to celebrate the occassion. This was part of the 10 for my daughters birthday celebrations the week before last.

We've had a lovely week in Queensland, swimming in the sea and basking in the sun and collecting shells, and eating out, catching busses and exploring a different world to the one we know. It's been a proper holiday, and I feel I've had a real break from routine which is, I guess what holidays are all about.

I did buy myself a new book for the holidays, and I spent a good deal of time reading this and imagining what I could do differently in my space. No doubt I'll run out of time to do anything about organizing craft space as I'll be right back into it all soon enough.

My orchid is still flowering valiantly and I have counted 13 spikes on others which I find just SO exciting. Lots of garden pleasure to come - my next post will be fifty-one!

Hi Annie - I've just found your blog through RicRac who I found through Lissa - and I can't wait to have a good read of it as you seem to be on my wavelength! Happy 50th blog post - I'm nearing mine too! The birthday cake looks lovely - did you really make 10? Lucy x

Congratulations on your 50th post.
Sounds like you have had a wonderful holiday. I'm so jealous of you being able to swim and bask in the sun. It is hot here but no where near the beach and now we are on water restrictions Great!
Look forward to more great posts.
Hugs xx

Hi Annie - congratulations on your 50th post. I have a great book along the lines of the one in your post. It's called "where women create". Lot's of different ideas and beautiful pics of craft rooms. I think I got it on Amazon (more than likely!)

Well done, Annie! You have brought us much entertainment and many visual delights through your blog. Glad you had a great holiday! Not too long to the BIG one now!!

Hello - well done on 50 posts! Is that a chocolate ripple cake? (maybe only Victorians would get that)- they are very popular in our house! Do you do something special with your orchids - mine have buds but not 13 spikes!

Hi Annie

Congrats on reaching 50 - those orchids are such a pretty colour! My thumbs are black not green......I'm jealous!

Happy 50th!

and I wish I had a nice big slice of birthday cake right now!

I only like Birthday Cake and Wedding Cake...any other cake doesn't really interest me :)
