SURROUNDED BY ALL MY LOVELY THINGS
It feels like it has taken me forever to finally get my office together. It use to be a large walk in pantry, I found it to be a bit of a waste so I set out to make it into an office, small but useful, I'm so happy the way it has turned out and just love spending time in here.
I have a lot of some of you in here with me such as my beautiful sign from Natasha WENDY'S WORLD! Nikki's lovely ballerina collage. I brought my Sweetie (mannequin) & cone from the ever so talented Heather. Sweetie travelled all the way from US and is with me every time I'm in the office, and when ever I need an opinion she amazingly agrees with me.
The divine soaps, O I wish you could smell them, cards, beautiful crystal draw knobs & little paper weights are from the lovely Ali. Now look at my magnificent painted tin I have another white one in my kitchen from our creative Lori who I also brought the most darling birdies that sit on a spoon.
The Stunning charms, linen journals and needle cushions and laundry bags that you can see in my cupboard are all hand made from the finest linens just perfect by the very special Cathy Penton. I love to show off my to die for
(but you can't have it) crown and wand made for me with this beautiful gold W of course its from Natasha!!
I have some gorgeous boxes from Kris, special journals made just for me by Natasha I Love them they are my favourite, I have a passion for them and the one thing I just love to do is write
Take as long as you like to cast your eyes on my Exquisite Fairy hand made from the delightful Ginny who was so kind to make this special fairy for me, I will always cherish her, and have wanted her for so long since Ginny's did one for Natasha's match box swap,I so appreciate not only the beautiful work Ginny has created buy the time taken out from her day just for me to have her.
Well their you have it I'm sure their are many other special things you can see from so many talented and creative women that I admire very much, but it would be impossible to name everyone, just know that you are all a part of my daily journal writing sitting here on my chair.
I have a very special doll arriving soon, O the very thought of it and the story behind her gives me the warmest feeling inside and some other things from my forever friend Natasha, also some very special gift that will be opened at Christmas from the sweet sweet Ali, but you will have to wait for them to be added in a Christmas spot in Wendy's World.
Always Wendy :)

A DAY TO ALWAYS REMEMBER
Wednesday 14th November 2007
I traveled up to the lovely Eumundi Markets to meet my friends Natasha & Kathy for the first time, I had been emailing both ladies and buying their beautiful creations for such a long time but had never meet them in person.
You can image my excitement I had been counting down the days since Natasha told me she would be visiting the most lovely Kathy in the whole world and would I like to join them at the markets. Well as you now know I jumped leaped arranged everything months ago to ensure I would be there, even told my staff they had to be DEAD! to not turn up for work that day LOL! so everyone knew I was off to meet my dear friends.
So after a little late start off I drove I had never been to the market before so of cause I took the wrong turn and got myself a little lost, but the old road I found myself on was a lovely drive and I saw a little shop I thought I might stop at on the way back.
Well the moment had arrived and their they were in front of me I wanted to squeeze them so tight with excitement but thought a little hug would be better since I had the day to spend with them and they would need to be able to breathe to do that!! so control over came me and after receiving all my goodies from the most beautiful Natasha in the whole world we were off to do some damage to keep our banks happy.
The market was unbelievable so much to see and not enough time, besides we were all to busy catching up laughing eating Mmmmmmmmmm lunch was so good. I brought some new shoes ear rings a little girl for the garden with a watering can and a beautiful table all of these you can see below.
Time yes it goes to fast, and for me sadness, as it was time to say goodbye two my friends who made my day so enjoyable that I will Cherish and smile about it each time I remember our day at Eumundi.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH MY FRIENDS
LET THE FUN BEGIN
Natasha just loves her camera sometimes you never know where she is!LOL
Now on the way home from the markets I stopped at very little town called Yandina, their was a little second hand store were I was so lucky to buy all these lovely things you see on my beautiful new table. Be sure to check out the price of my beautiful doll, Yes I know $20.00 wow I grabbed her and didn't let go!! I also got this divine vase just love it, some lovely crystal bowls and little tins. All these wonderful things only cost a total of $38.00
I'm so into this market shopping now the girls have sure changed me, off to two more this weekend and they are right here in Buderim on a Sunday and I never knew, where have I been!LOL
Always Wendy :)
My office is almost finished and I think I did a pretty good job,you can see it next time my friends!

"INSTEAD SHANE AND I HAVE BEEN TO EVERY PROM AROUND THE WORLD"
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN! I was about to post all about my wonderful time I had had with Natasha and Kathy, when I went to check out Natasha's Prom!! WELL say no more it was way out of "Wendy's World".
Once the music started my Love of all times Shane came to see where the great songs were coming from and stayed through the whole presentation of all the blogs who had joined in on the fun.
You were all amazing and so creative with your ideas we just had so much fun looking back and bopping along to the music!! THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH FOR SHARING.
NOW IF SHANE AND I COULD HAVE GONE TO THE PROM WITH YOU AND HAD SOME MUSIC TO PLAY, WE WOULD CHOOSE THE SONG
"I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE" AND DEDICATE IT ALL TO YOU WONDERFUL GIRLS.
So here is a little bit of us way back then.

OUR LITTLE FELLOW
"13Th NOVEMBER 1984" 9.50AM"
Joel Shane Benson born 5 weeks early
Our beautiful Son born so fragile and not knowing how to breathe finally made it through with our love and strength. O what a fright he gave us, a little miracle to begin with, now 23 years on and his 6ft 5inch after all that stress!LOL
So blessed to have such a loving Son who always thinks of others first, his sharp witty personality make me laugh everyday (takes after his father)! I call him my quiet achiever. Joel has followed his Dad in Swim Coaching after a remarkable swimming career winning medals and State Country & National Level qualifying for both the Commonwealth & Olympic Trials.
Joel gives a great deal of his time teaching underprivileged children for free he once raised over $15,000 for a skate park for a community where children only had the streets to play in. His swimming career money has always been donated back to children or clubs knowing they will enjoy life so much more playing on their skateboards then hanging around the streets.
In the year 2000 special Medals were handed out from the Queen by our Prime Minister Joel was awarded one at Government House for his work and contribution to children of small community towns and for his outstanding swimming achievements, we are so very proud of him.
Our little fellow who sees everything has a silver lining and a happy ending!!
Time to Go Home Little Brother
