Early Morning Market

I love snowdrops.

And my Nathalie Lete colouring in book.

She will be painting the windows of Blue Illusion in Double Bay on 28th September, 1.00pm - 4.00pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Excited much?

When I found this at the markets this morning, it's whimsy reminded me of Nathalie Lete's pieces of art.

Sun, Shiny Day

Glorious day today. Flowers in the garden. First magnolia buds on the tree. The lone daffodil in chubby little hand.

More, More, More!

It's Day 4!

Very emnbarrassing for me, but I hope this gives you a giggle. Picture this - pub on a Thursday afternoon, still full from lunch, mother walks in with children needing a toilet stop, toilet stop complete, rushing, rushing, make way through pub. Full. Of. Men. Are you dying yet? Racing out the door 5 paces ahead of my children when my 10 year old says, "Wait, Mum, Mum, there's a problem!"

Yes, that's right. Dress caught in pantihose! I skiddadled faster than Hairy Mclary.

Moral of the story....always throw out your holey pantihose. Firstly, because they are holey and secondly, because they will look ghastly when your dress is caught up in them.

So, in the name of my embarrassment, think of this often and smile. Bloody hell, it's all I can do!

Day 2

Commitment, commitment.

I've made a commitment and I gotta stick to it. Day 2 - are you excited?

These little pieces are from the box of stencils on yesterdays post. They are a recent vintage find and are ever so endearing. That fox is, well, foxy to say the least!

Over the next 19 days of habit forming blogging, I may just post the odd photo, something I'm working on, a covetable piece or two or hopefully something of inspiration. These days when I look around at blogs, I love nothing better than finding a simple image from somebodies private world. Usually, it's just enough to put a little spring in my step, put my shoulders back and generally feel grateful.

Note: Spell check is telling me covetable is not a word and the big fat dictionary is too far away. I think it is a word. If it isn't, it's a new word for today. Ok.

Back in the Habit

Over at PMM HQ, she's all about getting back into the habit. So, I thought I might take the challenge of getting back in the habit of blogging. Mmmm, sounds challenging doesn't it? So, here I go, Day 1 of getting back in the habit.
