~ Just Chat ~

Hi and if you are visiting my blog a big thank you for taking the time....

I have a couple of things to share with you today.  One, a beautiful little visitor who flew into the garden the other day and even came right in under our deck to look for insects .....

Look at this little treasure....

Isn't he just the cutest thing.  My research tells me he is a 'Striated Black-headed Pardalote' 
and was very tiny.Their size is about 9-11.5 cm.  I really hope he will come back again.

I just love when these more unusual birds visit our garden. Sometimes their visits are just very fleeting but they bring with them so much pleasure to us when we see them.  

Speaking of tiny things...
I made this tiny mini album recently for my beautiful daughter and thought you might like to see it. It is only about 2.5 inches square.

I didn't take any photos of the individual pages but I was amazed at how much I could fit into this tiny book.  Each page was a pocket page and had something tucked into it and I hung some charms from the side.

Autumn is here in Australia and even although we live in the sub-tropics we can feel a slight difference now in the temperatures particularly on our morning walks and it is that time of year when you need to change the bedclothes to something a little warmer.

My beautiful boy Ben,  hasn't made an appearance here for quite a while it is appropriate that I show you a photo of him this time as he turns 8 years old this Friday.  Love that boy!!

He LOVES the beach!!
