Well, hello friends, would love to show you some more lovely crafty/stylish items which we have accumilated over the uni holidays (uni starting tomorrow! eep!). 

The top which I'm wearing has been amazingly created by our wonderfully talented mum. She's noticed the PeterPan collars floating around and how I seem to gravitate towards them on any clothes item (dress, jacket, top, cardigan etc.) The list is endless, of all the objects which becomes instantly cuter once a Peter Pan collar is attached! 

You may have also seen this bag before, I used it in our colour blocking post. Funny story, I saw this bag in Salvos, resisted the temptation to buy and put it back. I left, but felt it was still calling my name. So there was only one logical solution, I went back, and, bought it.


Went to the Sunday Camberwell market this morning before church. And I reckon I bought too much stuff. 

Don't get me wrong! I reckon I got some pretty good buys, but, there does come a time when the guilt seeps in and the good ol wallet feels a little lighter.

I CAN'T RESIST cheap buys....when I see $10 or $5 heart melts and my mind goes crazy..... 

Hehheh, need to learn some self control.

Will keep you updated on that one!  


Hope you've been enjoying the pictures lovelies!

We wanted to give a little shout to you guys by saying hello this morning with some little lovely treats!

If you remember, or if you don't that it perfectly normal/fine/acceptable, Val and I went with our lovely friends to the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.

When we were there, we managed to pick up something sweet for our darling sister. 

And what could possibly be sweeter than a cupcake that resembles a rolling hill of flowers blooming in the late spring!

Check out this wonder of a cupcake!

How delightful is it! The surrounding delicacies are cupcakes from coles. Heh, just added a bit to the photo I suppose.

I know what you're all thinking now.

You're thinking, did this cupcake of wonder and spring delights ever make it's way into our little sister's belly? And if it did, what sort of scrumptious flavours were infused into this little cuppy-cake?
(a.k.a "What did it taste like????)

WELL. This little cupcake served it's purpose too well! Our little sister thought that it was too pretty to eat! So as it sat and looked pretty in the fridge until this poor cupcake was slowly slowly... starting to expire.

So a lesson to be learned dear readers,
cupcakes are pretty, that I got,
but left for a while, they will definately rot.

Ah well, you can remember it with these photos and appreciate the skill and talent to produce such an delight to look at. I'm sure that it tasted... like what it appeared to be. (grass?)

keep inspired

Here are some sneak pics of some cards which I've been working on recently. Don't you just love it when you're inspired to create something beautiful or simple? It felt simply grand to have my own 'making (as in craft/creating) space in a little corner of the room surrounded by paper, glue and the classic fineliners. 
The cards I was working on are the result of a number of my close friends having birthdays, quite close together in the month of Jan. Thus in order to avoid last-minuteness I (forcibly) encouraged myself to sit down and finish some cards. 
Here's a little peek into my work space. I may not the very neatest of people as you may see but I've got everything I need at arm's reaching distance! 

Also while I was crafting along, I also was looking for inspiration on blogs and came across these beautiful photo of a tattoo, which I casually copied onto myself. My friends at work thought it was real, hehheh, so if anyone is after a tattoo designer, don't hesistate to ask! 

Ah, I love typography, too beautiful.

Hope you're having a creative day!

Okay, honestly the first photo in this post would not be the best photo of  Val. I like to believe that photo was taken early in the morning, hence the terrible hair and sleepy eyes which no amount of photo shop can fix! And the old man socks,....interesting. 

Anywhos, back to the outfit post details! This dress is yet another altered, 'old dress, new style'  outfit. Mum and I scored this dress at one of the local op shops in our area for around $6. What was once an oversized, slightly floppy dress is now a light, sweet and airy summer dress, thanks to some hemming and sewing!

I'm also quite proud of the leaf garland I managed to fashion for myself. Whipped that one together while I was waiting for Vess to grab the camera for our mini shoot in our front yard. It's always fun to casually stroll,  pretending when neighbours drive pass not to be discretely taking pictures of ourselves.
