List Lovin’


Things about me.

1.  Getting a tattoo didn’t freak me out anywhere near as much as having an
injection does.

2.  I always notice people’s shoes.

3.  Camping was great as a kid, painful during my late teens/early twenties and now
I am back in love with it again.

4.  I prefer op-shops to shopping malls.

5.  I don’t watch television (except occasionally on DVD).

6.  My normal speaking voice is at just the right pitch to be drowned out in any noisy environment.

7.  I am a planner but rarely manage to complete my lists.

8.  I love double-salted licorice. Especially licorice powder.

9.  My sense of smell is quite strong and decisive. I tend to find this more a burden than an asset.

10. My wedding took me around two phone calls and a few emails to prepare for and it
was perfect. (My husband organised the honeymoon, which took a little more effort. That also turned out perfectly.)

11. I have a soft spot for kawaii.

A Few Loves


I like this (per photo above) for a table set up.  Colourful food packaging meets a bit of greenery.

This girl has a very cool writing style.  I think she would be a lot of fun to hang out with. Check out her toy terrariums.

My new obsession.  Crave crave crave.

I know it’s pretty popular, but I just love this shower curtain.  It makes me smile every time I see it in blogland. Why no Anthropologie in Australia, why?! (Yes, I know they sell online, but touching is better than nothing when you can’t afford it:)

Must improve vocabulary – starting with all 100 of these words.

I haven’t been to the shop but oh my what a sitelove this method of creating a theme. Travellers & Magicians is my current favourite.  Sibella – you rock.

a List and a Long Weekend

On the brink of a long weekend and I am pondering how to spend it.

Ok, a list of things to accomplish:

1. Make ~ and enjoy ~ nutella and banana crepes.  Have a random craving for them.

2. Decorate a certain wall at home.  It’s a big white canvas right now, just begging for a bit of love and enthusiasm.

3. Make a headband. I have just stumbled across this blog and have been ever so inspired.

4. Make some bunting. I love Wanderlust‘s style.  (Must move beyond paper garlands.  But they can be so pretty!)

5. Brainstorm ways that being creative could earn $

6. Take a bunch of photos of our home. And the kids.

7. Try not to go online and spend hours and hours perusing the blogs that I haven’t as yet encountered on this list.

Is 7 a good number?  It’ll do.
