Isn’t this a creative letterbox? One of the things I like best about holidays is all the interesting mailboxes we see! ย ๐Ÿ™‚


Pigs Might Fly

Recently we went for a drive, and saw this mailbox. It’s the second pig mailbox I’ve seen so far. ๐Ÿ™‚

On holidays we go for very long drives, and oftenย see interesting letterboxes. I like to take pictures of them and post them here as a tribute to the creativity of rural Aussies. ๐Ÿ™‚

Woolly Adventures

These pictures were taken in a little touristy shop in New Zealand. The shop also had possum hats, jackets, rugs, and possum and merino wool jumpers and yarn. ๐Ÿ™‚


I saw some hand spun wool here, and I just couldn’t resist taking some photos. ๐Ÿ™‚

It looked so cute! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here is some more yarn.

Fun in the Snow

On our last holiday, we visited New Zealand. We had LOTS of fun!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

We went to the snow twice: once to The Remarks, and once to Coronet. These photos are from the second time. This is picture of my father about to SHOOT me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€



We also had a go at building a snowman: he didn’t get very big, though – the snow was too hard. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is Miss 7 withย him. ๐Ÿ˜€

After that my father decided it was nap time! Miss 11 and I told him he would fall off the edge and never be heard of again, but he was UNMOVEABLE. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›
