i'll tell you a secret. today wasn't a very good day. tomorrow will be better though. i like to keep the positive energy up on this blog, even when i feel like a whinge or a tear. today is going to be a teeny tiny exception...but will be balanced with some eye candy and lots of lovey vibes. i have been completely out of whack this week. an infection, tears and plans of change have spiralled with exhaustion to create a whirlwind that i've really not enjoyed being caught in. came to a climax today with a cracking headache and a cry to my dad. he always knows exactly what to say and how to say it....seeing his handsome face on skype just made me even more sad! i am sad that i won't be spending fathers day with him tomorrow...he is the best man in my life and i want to celebrate him, everyday. i have a little something special (in blog form) planned for tomorrow whilst i am out and about wandering suitcase rummage. my head is bubbling with new ideas for artworks...i have even started work on a 7000 piece puzzle (see post below) as i had one of those early morning epiphany's that got me scribbling on an old receipt with a blunt faber castell found whilst fumbling the dust bunnies under my bed. it's going to be a goody! it is also only 26 days until hawaii...how can i be complaining i hear you say? i know, i know. the sentimental creature that i am is also an impatient creature that simply cannot wait 26 days to see her mum and dad. i have some new ideas that involve a sewing machine and my fabrics (finally a project i think i can undertake and not get bored of and all it's complexity!) and a new brekkie cookie recipe that i am dying to try out. i've never been a cereal & milk kinda girl so these 'healthyish' cookies look a treat. joy the baker to the rescue. i am planning on leaving the flower house in a few months so a lot has to be done/sold/packed/rummaged before i go. no plans to leave sunny brisbane just yet but i am in dire need to save some $$$$ for my europe venture mid next year so hopefully everything will fall into place. i've posted a pic of amanda's gorgeous couch as it's so close to being a body double of the beloved couch that my bestie and i purchased a few years back when we first moved out of home. (i squealed when i first saw it in amanda's feature in 'spaces') it will be one of the pre-loved items that i will regrettably sell when the time comes. i also did a little pre-birthday shopping (with vintage pillowcases at $4 a pop...who could resist) over at smile & wave and i'm already so excited for my parcel to arrive. it's the simple things i tell you. anyway my loves, thank you for listening to my rants and googling at my eye candy. i will be back tomorrow with a special post. wishing you all a happy fathers day...wherever your dad may be. xx
rachel heard my calls for more vintage linen.
