i am samm. samm i am.
i entered the world of blog and haven’t looked back!
i live on the beautiful mornington peninsula with
my funny husband gary. he keeps himself very busy as the cellar door manager at Red Hill Estate vineyard and in his spare time he strums his guitar, sings songs at the local muso night and entertains the mornington peninsula via 3RPP community radio station. If you live locally, tune in on a Wednesday afternoon from 1 – 3 to hear Gary and Laurie – you’re guaranteed a HUGE laugh!
Gary and I share our lives with
Dave the Golden Retriever.
Dave took a full FOUR years to turn into what I can now call a remotely socially acceptable member of our family. Although, he still has his moments (full water bowl, big hoofy back foot, into full water bowl, wet kitchen floor and wet footprints all through loungeroom where Dave retreated to as I yelled, LOUDLY….). The burps and farts are also not so exciting but really, who wouldn’t love that face???
Rest gently Dave the Golden Retriever
06/05/02 – 09/02/08
We miss you Mr Hoofa xo
Dave’s best friend is
Miss Tilly Tupence.
Some would say that she is the most spoilt Staffy in the world. I would disagree… till I’m blue in the face. I’m her mother – I’m allowed to. And, this is MY blog…not Gary’s!
that Chickee wants to play… hmmm. Cats have sharp claws and are much smarter than crazy staffy dogs!
Anyway, we all live in a relatively calm household (?).
I call myself an artist. It took me a while to do so but I guess it’s a more relevant description than anything else I’ve come up with! I love a great variety of media but get most satisfaction out of my photography, paper and textile works. I am constantly learning, mostly through teaching myself but also through some amazing artists that I have come to know via my blogging. My blogroll grows constantly so feel free to check out some of my favourites. Recently I have been interested in the works of Gustav Klimt and Hundertwasser. I’m working on my knowledge of their histories. I also love the work of Mirka Mora.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
