Folksy Friday #18

New Home

We've made the hard decision to move, weighed the pros and cons and decided it's time, we want a new house!  So now it's all systems go, hours trawling the local property sites, pressing our noses on estate agents windows and just desperately hoping something we love comes up.  We aren't asking much, just a little house with a bit of character and some outside space....somewhere that feels like 'Home'

Thats what sparked this weeks Folksy Friday, I hope you enjoy my choices. (pinks the link)

We were very lucky on our trip to Rethymnon to have 3 Sea Turtle nests right on the beach in front of our apartment....and after a very long, hot day we decided on a late evening swim in the sea, only to come across one nest being opened :)

We watched eagerly as the volunteers carefully examined each and every egg...

and then this little man appeared...

he needed a little hand...

he was very slow, I only hope he managed to get out to sea that night,
if not im sure he loved the sunset as much as us....

Bird Swap

As I mentioned here, i signed up to Noodle Bubbles Bird Swap in June and I parcelled off my own little birdies to my swap buddy in the Netherlands, Ina......Well I received my parcel from her this week and just wanted to share some photos of what I got.

Ina was very generous and sent me a beautiful bird pin cushion along with lots of little extras too...including some gorgeous fabric, buttons, a bird decoration, a keyring and a handmade card.

Photographs from the bird swap are being added to the flickr pool

Thank you Ina!!! :)
