Sunshine Coast, Queensland: My Favourite Things

Our second home in Australia is our little bush shack on the Sunshine Coast.  We managed to grab a few days up here over Easter.  Last year I was lucky enough to take 4 months off work and we spent 6 weeks of that time up here.  During that time I decided to get in touch with my artistic side and made this pot to plant our little xmas tree in.  I had heaps of fun, smashing tiles into little pieces, grouting, and just generally getting my hands dirty.
We also did some landscaping and replanting.  We put in this path which looks fantastic and is also very much appreciated when it rains and we don't have to slog from the car to the front door through the mud.  Love this plant.
Our trusty mode of transport while we are here is this amazing 64 EH Holden.  This car has been in David's family since '64.  It never let's us down even when we leave it garaged for a few months. What a car...
Another beautiful plant...

And of course, the most wonderful husband in the world snuggled up with the most angelic pooch ever to be born.  We are missing our beautiful cats Ringo and Oly, but we will be back to Melbourne to shower them with love very soon.  Meanwhile, Nonna Cosma is no doubt looking after them exceptionally well.
