oooh the blues

party blue    
jump in blue
blue dancing shoes
permanent blue
the blue room
cool blue
moody blue
blue bottles
soft blue
holiday blue
dancing blue
loud blue
fancy blue
no longer blue

do you have a song that makes you instant happy?
"Ooh {The Blues}" by the Scissor Sisters does it for me. 
It makes me want to put on my dancing shoes {if I had a pair}.
I found all of these beautiful blues at pinterest

moving house is really fascinating!

egads! I am moving house!
The home I rent is being sold and I chose the option of moving out straight away. It has been a
bit unsettled around here as you would know if you've ever had a house up for sale or had to move.
I've been doing a lot of tidying up and decluttering {it was a good thing I started back in January!}

So who knows where next! I am pretty nervous about finding a new place.
I really love living here because the house suits me and is in a perfect location. We made our home as nice as we could and we have built our lives around it and so to move means having to start all over again. I am hoping to make it as easy as possible. I was upset at first but now am thinking of all of the good possibilities that may present themselves.

My bro Danny passed on a little gem of advice which a lady told him, I believe it is a quote from Tony Robbins ~ "replace the word frustrating with fascinating".
For example, "that person is really fascinating" or "I am finding looking for a new house really fascinating". I think it's a good one.
Cleaning my office/ Mac Lab/ Social Media Control Centre in preparation for the open home was really fascinating, actually it really was. It's been messy for two years since I moved in, mostly too much stuff in boxes. I found so many cool things I had forgotten about when I was sorting it all out and threw away a lot of crap too. Now it is wonderful! Everything's organised, no more boxes, I'm enjoying it! If only for a couple of weeks before I have to pack it all in boxes again!

a valid excuse! from here

movie night in the suburbs

I wish I could say this was my suburban backyard hosting this amazing outdoor cinema party but this is the work of a delightfully creative friend of mine from college.
She created this beautiful evening with the help of her family to celebrate her birthday!
The photos are just gorgeous and there's a beautiful little film of the night too. So many wonderful
details and cool ideas. Makes me want to drag out all my cushions and rugs and set up movie night
under the stars at my house.
I was excited to share this with you because the photos are so lovely and I'm sure you will like them too.

Love your work Shayna!

To see the full post and all of her gorgeous photos of the night, visit Shayna's blog ~ Mulders Drapery ~ I always look forward to seeing her new design work.

Life never sits still for long though... new happenings are just around the corner.You can read more of her adventures at the enchanting forest

Tuesday Treasures

dominoes ~ little ones

I can't remember where I found these. I've had them for a couple of years. I have photographed them next to a normal sized domino so you can see how small they really are. Aren't they so cute!
They came in a plastic tray and are made of plastic too. Somewhere along the road some of the pieces have become quite warped, {which adds to their charm} possibly from being left too long in the heat... a long car trip maybe?

Because of their warped-ness it's really tricky to fit them all back into their little tray but we can and then we take them with us when we go places.

I am following Tuesday's Treasures at Picklebug - go and visit!

perfect sunday

oooh look ~ exercise does pay off!

This is what I found on my early Sunday morning walk!

I was just saying to my pt/brother in-law Dan, as we walked past piles of council clean up rubbish, that I really was NOT going to be picking up and more fantastic junk finds as my house is at capacity but just as those ill fated words fell from my mouth my eyes spotted this orchy crate and good intentions were swiftly kicked to the kerbside. I had to walk another approx 5kms up and down hills with that, although Dan did offer to carry it for me. It was a great workout!
