what i've been up to lately ...

it's been a busy week ... 

i finished 2 more shabby chic mosaic pots the other day that i'm super proud of ...
ahhh Paris ...




my 'bouquet' pot ..





then i've been helping with the mustering here this week inbetween homeschooling.  we live on a remote cattle property and when we muster our "Woods" paddock, someone needs to drive a vehicle very slowly in the 'lead' so the cattle follow me, while the men zoom around on motorbikes keeping them all together in a mob behind me.  eventually they make it back to our house 'cattle yards' where the men work them... 

our jack russell 'Disco' didn't want to be left behind...

coming over the first channel ...

... manpower !

staying in a mob ... sort of ...

quite a far cry from what my 'etsy' and 'madeit' stores look like huh???

... looking better now!

... up close and personal ...

... and it's always cute to see the calves with their mums... awww


...  all part of living out here and great for the kids to get out and help dad and the men to do what they love the best ...  but alas ... back to school tomorrow!!!

~  enjoy your week ~

How interesting, I've never heard of "mustering" cattle. You really have a huge herd and those little calves are so sweet. What a sweet and adorable dog! :)

I love the design and colors on your mosaic pot...very nice!

I LOVE the pot - it's so pretty. You are lucky to live on a remote cattle property. I am really torn about where I am going to settle. I have always wanted to live in the mountains, but then I want to be closer to the kids in a town. Decisions, decisions. The cattle pictures were so special to me.
