30th Jan, 2009

Finally my Mimco bow boy necklace arrived.

It took 10 days. Numerous emails to the seller. A PayPal claim. Ranting & increasing irritation on my part.

I adore it. Have no idea what to wear it to or with, but that's by the by.

I'm psyched that Channel 9 has brought back Bargain Hunt. It's a great lead in to Antiques Roadshow. David Dickinson FTW.

28th Jan, 2009

Due to brain fag (as my Theatre Studies teacher called it) my previous entry for the 28th was in fact taken on the 27th. Whoopsadoodle.

This is Kermit's rabbit paw. Shitty quality courtesy of Ixus' capabilities, however it's more convenient than my DSLR.

Happy now Plot?

Freaky gnome in the front garden of Paige & Mike's new house.

Nudey wallpaper in their toilet. Look at the leery evil water man (merman?).
HA! I posted first, Skott!

Today's most exciting purchases, courtesy of DFO:
Pashmina $5 from Cotton On
Red mary janes $34.97 from Steve Madden
Yellow peep toe mary janes $49 from Nine West (they aren't as yellow as this photo suggests)
Purple heels $23.98 from Joanne Mercer

I did go looking only for yellow heels, but the purple were a bargain & much more comfortable than the other purple heels I have...& the red, well who can resist a pair of red mary janes?

24th Jan, 2009

Toasted bagel with lettuce, cucumber, red onion, avocado & plenty of smoked salmon.

Kermit's been wilting in the heat. I get home from work & he's either Flat Catted himself on the tiles or snuggled up in his Kitty Kondo. He did one of his cutesy poses tonight & I couldn't resist taking this picture.

22nd Jan, 2009

Yay! My prize from Novo arrived. Amongst the goodies was an Australis makeup palette with these eyeshadows. I'm not expecting the quality to be good, but I love the pretty pristineness of it.

Do want.

20th Jan, 2009

Day 18 of mailbox watch to see if my prize from Novo has arrived. No dice. Asshats.

Our mailbox needs a clean.

Apparently this has been on our front fence since we moved in. I only noticed it recently. Fail at observation.

Tonight's dinner: lebanese bread pizza with spinach, ham, cannellini beans & tomato.

Shaun as glam rocker extraordinaire. Teasing his hair took most of a can of hairspray & over an hour. He looked the part.

Henri Matisse's Study after 'The pink nude', 1935. A postcard from my mum (she sent it last year, not in 1935).

13th Jan, 2009

NYE '08 relics awaiting collection by our friendly neighbourhood recycling men.

Selection from my bookshelf. I am a re-reader (hence the worn spines). And yes, I do like Judy Blume.

I've been watching a lot of Seinfeld. I want to be Elaine. Or Mr Peterson.

Up close & personal with the BarMobile, a brilliant contraption my friend found in a local op-shop. He thinks it's an old cricket drinks cart; I think it's brilliant. It has wheels & plenty of room for drinks & ice. It's been here since New Year's Eve, when he wheeled it to our house. I want it to stay forever.

Handmade felt birdy Christmas ornament from my mum. This is a reminder to myself to dismantle our Christmas tree. Tonight.

I bought this ginger jar on our last day in Penang. The shop was amazing with floor to ceiling shelves crammed with ginger jars, teacups and saucers of all shapes, colours and sizes.

6th Jan, 2009

Shaun bought me this tea rose for our anniversary last year. This year it has gone nutso; at the moment there's a cluster of about eight blooms, with a few more flowers scattered about.

I love it.

5th Jan, 2009

My offering for Monday. It had been a long day and I had no motivation left to find something better.

4th Jan, 2009

I can see myself falling back on taking photos of the somewhat-unwilling Kerminator throughout the year.

He was on the first platform of his Kitty Kondo and although he looks unimpressed, I have to rejoice in the fact that for once he didn't close his eyes against the flash.

3rd Jan, 2009

My mum has a habit of buying me 'things'. This little wooden box includes two incense holders, orange and lavender incense and some incense cones. It's been sitting, unused, for years. Until recently.

2nd Jan, 2009

Behold! Here lies Kermit, busily (!) sunning himself. I was watering the plants & had considered taking a photo of my blooming tea rose, when I turned my attention to Kermit. He yawned just as I took the shot.

1st Jan, 2009

My first photo for 2009! Taken in the early hours of the morn, these Chinese paper lanterns were part of my paltry decorating scheme for the NYE party we hosted.


One of my New Year resolutions was to spend time on my photography. When I was invited to take part in the '365 photos in 365 days' challenge, I decided that it would be the perfect opportunity for me.

I don't expect to be taking arty, high quality images throughout the year, but by experimenting and needing to capture something different each day, I hope that I can take some interesting shots.

I also need to start using the two lomo cameras I was fortunate enough to stumble upon!
