no procrastinating around here …

Yesterday, I worked my way through my list of things I have been putting off, some of them for a year now! Yes, I am that good at procrastinating!!! I still have a couple more tasks  to tackle, but I saw my DH wander off to work today with some phone numbers to ring, probably because […]

remember this moment …

[Credits: paper from Paper Essentials – Assortments, by [ksharonkdesigns]. Flowers, edge, string from Squeeze kit. Fonts: Clarissa, Arial Narrow.] It is such a fleeting moment, childhood! Tonight my daughter put on her heels and took her 6ft self off to see Romeo and Juliet with her drama class, and I’m pretty sure last time I checked, she was just […]

hey there, neighbour …

[Credits: paper from Paper Essentials – LemonLime, by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: DJB Amanda G.] I just had to document this beautiful bird’s visit to our backyard … The rainbow lorikeets always make me think that an artist has just gone crazy and slapped them with bright paint … sooo purty! Here we are, almost at the […]

pssst!

Twice a week, I sit in the car waiting for the girl to finish her music lesson. Even though we live in the city, we are fortunate enough to have lots of birds living around us, and today I had my camera and long lens with me, and I found this very suspicious plover wandering around the car. […]

visitors …

Just a few minutes ago, Charli started shrieking his head off, so I looked out the back door and found these beautiful Rainbow Lorikeets feeding on the tree by the back steps. I tried shooting them through a bedroom window, but in the end, quietly went out the front door and sat under the tree […]

brrrrr!

[Credits: border from Small Packages – Doodles 5, by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: DJB Jacked Uup Kinda Love.] Okay, okay, it’s not a real winter, with snow and blizzards and power outages and icy streets, but it is a little bit cooler in my (tropical) part of the world, and just the excuse the girl needed over […]

sunday has come and gone …

[Credits: papers from Plainly Worn kit and Serenity kit (blended), elements from Serenity kit, by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: DJB AmandaG.] Today was a ‘bitsa’ day … you know, the sort where nothing much happens, but everything happens. I had a sleep-in, but woke up in a sweat dreaming that a palm tree had fallen on my daughter, and I’d […]

the white bookcases …

I though I would share some photos of my new bookcases. About 15 years ago, pre the girl, I invested in four large dark timber bookcases, 7 ft by 4 ft. I lived in a house that had a large blank wall, against which the bookcases looked great. We treked all over the country just […]

how much fun is this?

Blog-hopping again … and dreaming! How much fun would it be for a teenager to have a room like this? Of course, you would need to have high ceilings for this to work, and probably sleep-walking isn’t a good idea, but all safety considerations set aside … loving this style of bedroom.
