I’ve been admiring Pugly Pixel for some time now.
It’s a gorgeous blog by a lady who is a ‘graphics, web, and tech enthusiast with an eye for pretty things’. This lady is also extremely generous and creative. She has a swag of freebies available for download that can pretty up any blog, from photo borders and cute graphics to photoshop brushes and clip art. Check out the freebies! Plus there are loads of other beautiful tools and embellishments via the marketplace or membership.
I’ve used the tape strips clip art on my blog. They come in all sorts of colours.
Thank you PuglyPixel!
I love that my favourite tree is blooming all over the city.
I’ve been particularly lazy with my photography of late. If the Jacarandas had started blooming about 3 months ago, I’d have enough photographs of them that I could actually start wallpapering my loungeroom wall.
But alas, I have none.
I will hold myself to the thought that I will get a glorious photo of one before the season’s out though.
One of my dear friends bought me a tree for my birthday too. So sweet! I can’t wait for it to grow and blossom.
It’s funny, although I am having a beach wedding there’s a part of me that would love to have a rustic country wedding.
I think this quaint bouquet is just gorgeous. I love lavender. When my fiance killed our English lavender bush whilst I was at work one day, I almost cried! “What? It looked ugly,” he said in defence!
If (in another life time) I had a bouquet like this, I would dry out the lavender and roses and make a special pot pourri and store it in a vintage pot pourri dish or a cute glass decanter.
Definition: a complex pattern of constantly changing colors and shapes.
This is my brain of late.
So much thinking, deciding, creating and planning for the next few months. But it’s all good, so long as I don’t start going CUCKOO.
I went wedding dress shopping for the first time today! Yikes, I was excited!
I was joined by my mum, mum-in-law-to-be, one of my bridesmaids and a dear friend.
After trying on 30 or so dresses, I found one that I really liked 🙂 What I’m going for is an ivory/champagne A-line dress that is either soft and flowing or figure hugging and silky (but not heavy). The one that I liked is soft and flowing and actually a dusty pink with champagne layers, so pretty. I just need to find that perfect silky number and I might be able to form a decision!
I think we’re nearing the end of the season so it sounds like there are new dresses on their way, which is pretty exciting.
Fun day! Can’t wait to do it all again in two weeks time…
I took my four legged friend to our favourite, old park the other day. I wonder if he remembers it at all.
What I love most about the park is the tall pine trees. There’s several in a line that form a pine tree corridor and I love walking through it. Makes me feel like I could be somewhere else, like New Zealand or Canada, minus the cold temp. The textured patterns on the tree trunks are amazing!
Here’s some pics.
I wish we still lived nearby.
