Say G'day Saturday Linky Party ~ Halloween!

Hello my dear friends and welcome to this week's Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party!


I'm sure you would have guessed that like everyone else in blogland, this week's Party will be dedicated to all things Halloween! However, before I start sharing some Halloween pins I just want to share some pictures from a Halloween party I threw for the kids last year. As I mentioned last week, Australians don't really celebrate Halloween so this party is probably very low-key in comparison to the way that my American friends celebrate but it was still a heap of fun for everyone who came.








We won't be having a Halloween party this year as we are doing something special at our Church so I will just have to virtually celebrate with all of my bloggy friends this weekend!

Since I'm not hosting a Halloween party this year I thought I would share some Halloween ideas from Always Crave Cute.  Crave Cute is listed on the Pinning Bloggers Master List and I'm sure you are going to LOVE her blog and Halloween ideas.While you are looking at these fun ideas you might like to listen to This is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Say G'day Saturday Linky Party ~ Christmas Ideas!

Hello my dear friends and welcome to another Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party!

This week I made an amazing discovery...I have 988 Followers Bloggy Friends! How amazing is that? Thank you so much to my all of my friends, old and new, for visiting me in my little corner of the world Down Under! I am truly honoured.

I also made another amazing discovery this week....Christmas really is on its way! Since we don't celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving over here in Australia , the shops are all decked out for Christmas. I've also noticed that lots of people are pinning lots of fabulous Christmas ideas on their Pinterest boards.

So, since I'm in the Christmas spirit, today I will be sharing some seasonal ideas from my sweet blogging friend Joy, the lady behind the fabulous Christmas blog, Christmas Spirit all year Long.


Christmas


Joy's site is full of great Christmas ideas, Christmas decorating posts and information about our favourite time of year....Christmas! Joy also has a blog called Tomorrow's Memories where she shares all of her favourite family stories, crafting ideas and photographs.


Joy really is a brilliant blogger!

Say G'Day Saturday Party ~ A Pink Party for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Hello and welcome this weekend's Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party!

Natasha In Oz

If you read my last post you would have seen that this week has been a very sad week for our family so I hope you will for give me if I haven't visited you this week. A very dear friend of ours passed away this week from breast cancer. It seems so pertinent but also very poignant that Sue passed away in October, the month that is dedicated to breast cancer cancer research. I am therefore posting a Pink post in honour of our dear friend Sue and all of the amazing women who are fighting or have fought this terrible disease.

 

I would also like to share a link to a new bloggy friend, Jo, who is an amazing lady who blogs at Jo's Corner.

 JO'S CORNER

Jo left the following comment on my "Think Pink" blog post and her bravery and faith have inspired me immensely.

I have terminal breast cancer. Sadly, despite having Radical Mastectomies and treatments, the cancer has spread throughout my body. In sharing that, I will say that my spirits are good on most days. And, I have lived much longer than was expected! I'm a Fighter and don't give up easily. Only recently, I've felt some despair that I may be entering my last Holiday Season. THAT makes me sad! I live alone, well not alone if I count Fauna and Flora, my two cats! But, I am wheelchair bound and have no family near me, so some days I feel alone. But, I always know that God is with me, so that gives me Peace.

I would so love it if you could please visit Jo and give her a great big virtual hug. You will love meeting such a wonderful, inspirational, kind and beautiful person...I'm sure she will change the way you look at life because of her positive and giving heart!

Thanks for being such an inspiring and amazing person, Jo!
This month, let's send a collective hug to all of our friends, sisters,  mothers, Aunts, Grandmothers, bloggers and loved ones who have been touched by breast cancer....


Let's ALL think Pink and help to 
find a cure for this terrible disease!
