Birds and Bottlebrush

Just a few quick iphone shots of the front garden. Lorikeets (birds) and bottlebrushes (tree). The lorikeets are having a ball with all the new blooms on this tree, and they are so noisy, but it's a beautiful noise. And the cats are absolutely loving it too. They may or may not be very frustrated… Continue reading Birds and Bottlebrush

Jack, Union Jack.

  I just love the Union Jack,  partly because it appears on our flag as well, and partly because of the strong colours.  I always go for the antique, well worn Union Jack decorator pieces.  And to have a rug with the Union Jack on it would be devine.  One could only hope. Have a… Continue reading Jack, Union Jack.

The Amazing Flowering Tea Balls.

Flowering tea balls are usually served in containers made of glass so that the flowering effect can be seen. The flowering balls can usually be reused two or three times without the tea becoming bitter.  It is unknown if the tea balls are from modern China or much older.  So give it a try, you… Continue reading The Amazing Flowering Tea Balls.

Not aloud to laugh…

However grammar is no laughing matter... The words 'aloud' and 'allowed' sound similar and are sometimes confused. Aloud The adverb 'aloud' means 'out loud' and refers to sound (almost always speech). Examples: Please do not read aloud. You're disturbing everyone else in the library. The public are not keen on lip-syncing; therefore, medal hopefuls must… Continue reading Not aloud to laugh…

Paper Boat Girl. In Progress. Updated.

I have completed a bit more on this piece. A bit of a close up of the paper boat, which I am very happy with.

How I Met Your Mother. Season Finale. No spoilers.

So just finished watching HIMYM, season finale, loved it, loved it, loved it.  My 19-year-old son summed it up by yelling at the screen "OMG it's happening, it's all coming together!" (we are not quiet reserved people in our house). I think I watched the entire episode with a big silly smile on my face. … Continue reading How I Met Your Mother. Season Finale. No spoilers.

Work In Progress.

Fashion Sketches From The 20’s and 80’s.

  Oh I had to laugh the other day, going through some old school stuff and found my sketches from the subject loosely titled "Fashion".  I'm guessing it is aprox 1985.  I'm sure we could probably guess just by looking at these two pics. This one is my favourite.  I was a little put out… Continue reading Fashion Sketches From The 20’s and 80’s.

Hair Moose And A Fairy Tale.

Once upon a time there was a little girl.  She loved to be outside when all her friends wanted to watch the television.  She didn't care at all.  She, in fact, preferred it. She preferred to be alone in the wild wild woods.  She proclaimed the woods her realm.  She walked those woods like she… Continue reading Hair Moose And A Fairy Tale.

Under Da Sea

I always sing this to myself (and sometimes, annoyingly, outloud, as I do not have a musical ear...so I am told...but they do say I improve greatly after the second glass of wine) whenever I see anything that belongs under the sea.  Now you can sing it, in bed, when you are trying to sleep… Continue reading Under Da Sea
