Happy Friday

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone is having a good pre-weekend day. Mine has been good, I received some news, and although I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch, in a few weeks may have a lot less to worry about than I have for some time. Anyway I also had a very good mail day this week with the arrival of my fuji instax camera which I can’t wait to try out on the weekend. It looks so cute, if anyone has one I’d love a few shooting hints?

Bits and Pieces

I’ve been meaning to write a proper post every day since last week, but when I sit down to do it feel lost for words. Does anyone else feel like that sometimes? Ugh bloggers block!

I had a lovely extended long weekend I went to see DJ Z-Trip on Thursday who I’ve been waiting to see for over a year (and who did not disappoint!), a Friday off… to err recover from the night before (it was pre-booked), and managed to get through a few little jobs I’ve been waiting to do at home as well as a batch of strawberry jam and lots of wedding prep with my cousin.

(the picture is of the cloud marshmallows available in the Herriott Grace store, I’m completely smitten with them, plus Nikole styles the most beautiful shots)

I Love Macarons

I've had my eye on this book since before christmas, and today I finally took one home. The instructions are step by step and detailed so maybe my second attempt will be better than my first, either way it is a beautiful book to look through.

I can’t believe it’s Monday again! Last week was so busy – the odd+even market (which was a really great experience), a crazy work week and feeling unwell on top of it all, wiped me out a little so I'm hoping this week will be lovely and quiet. Last night we had our first craft night for my cousin’s wedding, we had some vaguely valentiney cupcakes to keep us going and we made a good start, 27 tissue pom poms down and over 100 still to go!

On my table

The top is my favourite page from lines and shapes volume five.
My favourite photograph is in the middle - the magazine is the new jamie, the article about WOMAD -it sounds amazing.
The bottom photograph is of home grown strawberries and beautiful Tasmanian blueberries, they are so sweet right now.

Bright Star

I saw Bright Star on Saturday and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head ever since. It is stunningly beautiful, there are so many scenes that have stayed in my mind. I want to see it again right now. I love that Keats wears blue and Fanny that beautiful pinky red, and that all the seasons are so vivid. I haven’t seen a film for quite a while that made me feel like this.

I wanted to share a little follow up on my last post, beautiful George very sadly passed away yesterday. He was a very charismatic being and it is so so sad.

Today I went to my aunt and uncles farm to talk about my cousin's wedding, it was a lot of fun but my heart was stolen by a boy named George. He has ginger fur, a big belly the most gorgeous expressive face, and a deep purr. I've wanted a ginger cat for so long, so George was very lucky he didn't get catnapped and brought back to my place! The alpacas were pretty cute too, but no match to George.

Hot and Humid

Hi there,

I hope everyone is having a lovely week, it’s been so hot and humid here I feel so sticky, I’m hoping it will break soon, heat I like, humidity I do not! Anyway i thought I'd share a few pictures I've taken recently, I'm lacking inspiration on the photography front and I'd really like to change that. We have another long weekend coming up so hopefully I will get some time to play around with the camera!

Simply Paris

um…I’m not entirely sure where Monday went…oh wait yes I spent most of the day using the photocopier at work ugh, dull, dull!

So I have a bit of a thing about Paris at the moment, I suppose every girl does at some stage. Anyway last year when Jen went there I loved her images so much and now she has produced a little book, it looks wonderful and I can’t wait for it to arrive in my letterbox!
