a visual treat …

I have a little visual treat for you today … this weekend, I am visiting my parents, having left my family down south in the colder climes. My mum and dad have been on several tours/trips this year, and after checking out Dad’s photo stream on his iPhone, I wanted to share some of the […]

my dusty SLR …

Do you have one of those? A dusty SLR tucked away somewhere in corner, out of sight, neglected, unused? My once ‘pride & joy’ hardly makes it out of its camera case these days. I would say that 95% of my photos are now taken with my iPhone 4s, and I don’t see this changing […]

location, location, location …

It really is all about the location, isn’t it? Tuesday night I have to put the rubbish bins out for collection on Wednesday morning. So off I go, dragging two big bins behind me, down the length of our long driveway. And then I make my way down to the back of our property which […]

the white stuff – office …

[Home Design Board] Fun stuff, this week … an uber cool white office behind glass! Things to love … the fact that it can be quiet behind the glass, while life goes on in the rest of the house, how open it feels surrounded by glass, even though it has a very small foot print, […]

It came and went … the weekend, that is! Why do weeks drag, and weekends fly by? We enjoyed a short visit from family on their way to a week of skiing, always so good to have family stay and catch up on all the family goss. Hoping the weather is kind (read ‘lots of […]

the white stuff – bathroom …

[Brillante Interiors, Pinterest] I can feel my worries slipping away, just looking at this bathroom … Things to love … storage behind frosted glass, the inset next to the shower where you can pop your soap and shampoo, the amazing shower head, the touches of timber in the room to add warmth, the floor to […]

ye old bell tower …

I was on one of my daily treks around College yesterday, pulling my red trolley behind me on my way to the bookstore to collect boxes of books, when I came across this unusual sight … a bell tower in the middle of the lawn! It stands about six feet plus tall, so it makes […]
