Weekend in Autumn


Hi guys hope you all had a super weekend…this weekend the Castlemaine Swap Meet was held..as always a place to spot a bargain have a giggle at weird things and of course Doggie watch..
Hubby was up and down there at 5.30am as he was manning the gates and taking donations for the SES..not a chance this Pixie was going so early..
I ended up down there at about 9.30am and already it was a battle to find somewhere to park..my intention was to try and find some old house vents ..you know the external heavy old metal ones..i have found some before and they make really novel and handy stands for outside pots..not one to be found..dang!

 

Vents under my pots are super handy

So i made the most of the sunny day to mosey around, i have to say seemed like the same old things..which was a shame.
I managed to snap some pics but not many as i was really struggling to find anything that appealed..but of course the dogs that took their owners to the meet were always a joy to watch.
I always make sure when taking a close up of them that i ask “May i say hello to your pup..and take some pics” ..people are always so happy to show off their pups and it shows the pride they have in their four legged friends.
Some pics i take from a way off with a zoom as i think the natural behaviour and interaction with their surrounds sometimes says more πŸ™‚
I met a Koolie girl called Nicky…only about 2 years old and very interested in her surrounds as she sat with her person at his stall..he said she was always hard to get to look at a camera..it’s ok as they say never work with kid’s or animals..and to me i do not care if the ‘ideal’ pose is a bit askew ..it’s real and that is what i love..so i will introduce first Nicky..look at her stunning eyes!

 

 

Nicky none too impressed with my attempts to snap her

There were also a few old engineering beauties…not as many as usual which is a shame as they are gorgeous to snap.

This was such a gorgeous old furnace and had sold so i am sure will be looking happy in a new home

My final pictures are of the very beautiful Emily..Emily’s people told me she was a rescue dog from QLD..she had been at the shelter for two years as a senior dog…they fell in love with her beautiful nature.

They travel all around Australia and this gorgeous senior girl travels with them. Emily has been a delight to her people and they said she loves everybody and could not believe no one had adopted her.The day she went to her new home with them the shelter staff cried..both with joy and the sadness of saying goodbye..these wonderful people take Emily back every year to say hello to the staff and they have never forgotten her.

Shows that you cannot discount a senior pet as the love and joy they show at having her is proof that she is just as capable as a younger dog of bringing happiness and adventure into your life..so i close with the snaps i took of this sweet girl..i did not do many as she was hot and wanting to go forΒ  a drink..no matter what i may want to capture i always put the animal first..and this sweetie was generous enough of her time.

Have a great Monday guys..Fozziemum xx

 

Beautiful Emily

  2. Nicky is such a cute pup!!!! I bet it was like getting a treat for your cam to take a photo of Nicky :o) I’m so glad that Emily found the perfect home…and how great that her people have such a nice way to say thank you to QLD.. sometimes this world is just great!!! I probably had bought this old furnace, just because it touched my heart somehow… (and because I have not enough money for the hot red ride LOL)

  4. oh WOW! Awesome as always my friend. Mom says she needs to go to some markets to see if she can find a foyer table. Normally mommy *hates* to shop but something about this renovation has brought the shopping monster out in her. Go figure huh? XOXO – Bacon

    • I think the shopping monster comes out with renos…about the only time for me πŸ™‚ that and linen..which is so expensive we wait until a hole appears…and it has..urghh.. loves Fozziemum xxx

      • Exactly. Daddy says he has never met a woman that hates to shop like mommy. She *hates* it. Of course, during this reno she has had her fingers in everything – down to the new drapes for the living room. It’s weird to see her like that. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

  7. We all loved the pictures. Can you leave your plants in a pot and they will bloom next year? Tell me this isn’t so! We have a slightly raised bed at the front of the house and any plant near the edges will be killed over winter…mom planted crocus and tulip bulbs around the front and they never did come up.
