We're back ....

After a little "nap" we have decided to bring back the 2Daughters1Mother3cameras blog.

 I love that I can do something with my girls, we all lead such busy lives,  Evette lives in the States, Samantha lives an hours drive from where I am and this blog is a special connection we have together.

Please feel free to visit us, and join in the challenges that we give each other. We have decided to start off with the letters of the alphabet.

Just put a post on your blog, leave a comment on the 2D1M3C blog and we will visit you and leave a comment.

Looking forward to seeing you.  Angela xx

Sunset Sunday...

Last night we decided to go down to the beach to cool off, it was very hot for most of the day, a nice change because most of this Summer has been wet and windy. The sun was setting, these pics are SOOC, no editing, no cropping, I have to say that Mother Nature was at her best it was glorious.

Hope you enjoy a little taste of my one of my favourite places to walk..

Tuesday, February 14, 2012's Skunk...

Cute image isn't it...standing there holding a Valentine's Day heart. We don't have Skunks here in New Zealand, and although they look pretty cute I have to say that after yesterday I'm very pleased that we don't.

As mentioned before, Pop, (FIL) is cleaning out cupboards and bits n pieces since Nan passed away. Yesterday he decided to clean out the gardening cupboard and happened across some Dog and Cat repellant. What a great idea, we could use it to keep Max off the garden, and to stop him from destroying the pots. In a tube, it is manufactured to be harmless to the animals, smells like SKUNK and is guaranteed to keep dogs off the garden.

It is at this point that I can see all you Americans sitting there reading this, with a wry grin on your face, and a "No way, she didn't did she?". Oh yes I did, I put that stuff everywhere I thought I could keep Max away. On the edging, around the pots, on the wooden planter boxes..

What I was not banking on was THAT SMELL!!! It is the worst thing I have smelt in my whole life, worse than road kill, worse than silage, it is revolting. The stench has been sitting in my throat all day, when I got home from work it is still there, wafting around the garden, and what is worse is that it doesn't appear to have made any difference to Max. He has still destroyed one of my pots and eaten the plant.

I feel like a real clown, I should have googled the stuff before using it...

Any suggestions for getting rid of the odour? It said on the tube that it is water repellant so I don't think that hosing the garden down is going to help.

For the love of Buttons.....

Pop ( my FIL) has slowly been sorting through Nan's things since she passed away. A tough thing to do after 55 years of marriage, lots of memories coming to the surface. We have had a few tearful moments and a few giggles at some of the things he has found in the cupboards.

One of the things that he knows I absolutely love is Nan's button box. She has a biscuit tin full of vintage buttons some of them going back to when she was a young girl. A few days ago he came across the tin and gave them to me.... 

And I just had to share, they are beyond gorgeous..  Red, blue, green, yellow, pink, brown, black, grey, white, cream, purple...

 I want to do something special with them, and not put them onto clothing, they are worthy of being framed in some way, I have found a few ideas on Pinterest..anybody got some suggestions?

Friday Fences #20

Last Saturday I drove about 20mins out of town to check out a very old church, one of the originals when this area was settled over 100 years ago. ..

The fence was standing on it's own, the concrete sides look like they are original..

Then I went around the other side and took a pic of the church looking over the fence..
