hummingbird and cake.


a few jumbled thoughts on this friday evening. my mum loves hummingbirds...and clouds. so everytime i see a pretty cloud, i think of her...and everytime i see something with a hummingbird on it (usually whilst opshopping), i buy it. see cloud fabric pillowcase and hummingbird mirror below. i've been without kit this week and it's been a bit crappola. public transport just doesn't cut it. she should be back in working order by the end of the weekend, can't wait! it's only 8 weeks until i meet my parents in hawaii and i'm getting so excited. i can feel my emotions racing too, i even cried during the masterchef family reunion episode, like, really cried. artwork is being made for the exhibition which, ladies and gents...is in a month! nothing like a bit of pressure to get my creativity flowing. i feel some late nights coming on, but you know what? i love it, there's nothing quite like a 6 hour artmaking jaunt until 3am. just not quite sure how i'll do getting up at 6am to go to work. totes baking some salted caramel whoopies for a gorgeous girl's leaving party tomorrow. bound to be a sweet mix with some swedish berry cider! happy weekend all. ps. you have two more days to enter my giveaway..winner will be picked on monday, good luck!




a great mug for tea (made in israel) and floral pillowcase.


only the best cushion ever. turquoise and orange? don't mind if i do!


the sweet little hummingbird mirror..ode to mama!


a sweet thermos to be used as a vase..billy buttons are already at home in it.


the cloud pillowcase ( i have matching green cloud sheets) and some sweet cuppies i've made in the past...they matched, it just seemed right)

Those cupcakes look so pretty and delicious! and I love the floral pillowcase you bought. How sweet that hummingbirds remind you of your mum, I'm the same when seeing horse-related objects- my mum loves them :)

That is the bestest cushion in the world. And you have more than one thrifted item with hummingbirds on it? Perhaps a little mini bird expose is in order. melx
