This is my favourite image of my maternal grandparents Ray and Dorothy (Mardie and Pa). Candid images are often the best aren't they. This was taken just after Ray returned from the PNG front in WWII and you can see him in uniform. Like a lot of diggers he didn't like to talk about his time at war. He died before I had a chance to know him but as a fomer history major at uni I sincerely hope we have the good sense to learn from history and not to repeat it.
Please do not duplicate or use this image for any other purpose.

Hi Lovely Followers.... First of all sorry for the absence of blog posts, my neck has been somewhat disagreeable of late despite several stern "talking tos" and a small fortune spent at the physio :-) However it's on the mend now so onto more fun stuff!!
Sooo, the winners of our little ladies in the "name them" giveaway are Kylie for her suggestion of Marcie for our lass in pink and Sarah for her recommendation of Dorothy for gal number 2. Kylie has her little lady but Sarah please shoot me your deets so I can send you your very own Dorothy!
I'd also like to introduce you to Red Revival's newest design, the "wild ponies" line. At the moment the line includes a graduated set of 3 wall hangings (I don't know about you but I'm sick of ducks), and a super sweet brooch. I'd love to hear your thoughts! xx
