2012 Calendars

2012 Calendars are available now!  
I have 2 for you to choose from, the first is titled 'Whimsical Daydreams
featuring a collection of favourite whimsical themed pictured above.

The second is  'The Daydreamers Tea Party', 
featuring my favourites from the Polaroid Tea Cup shoot.  
This calendar is perfect for those of us who love to daydream over a cup of tea....
in a vintage cup of course...

I must admit I love them both, they are very different but both based on a dreamy whimsical theme.....

The beauty about these calendars, is they are printed on 5x7" matt photographic paper, 
so when the month is over, trim the dates off and
you have a  5x5" photo to frame, pin up on your inspiration board, your fridge...
It will arrive packaged in a divine vellum envelope, 
wrapped in brown paper, 
tied with string
decorated with a mini print 
and a lovely paper doily.

The tea cups

On Sunday I spent a few hours with one of my oldest and dearest friends, 
photographing her most divine vintage tea cup collection
I had 2 packs of Polaroid film waiting patiently in the fridge for our afternoon, 
and I cannot tell you how much these photos mean to me...for 2 reasons.  

Because I know how much the tea cups mean to my lovely friend, 
and well, because after being so uninspired for what feels like months and months, and doubting myself, 
these little tea cups set up on her adorable kitchen table, have given me that feeling again.  

You know, the one where all you can think about is the photos, 
when you just want to hold them in your hands and look at them again and again.  
When your heart feels alive and you feel the passion for it again.

Thank you, my wonderful friend,
for letting me come and take these photos, 
and for bringing the inspiration back.

A daydreaming kind of a weekend

Just when I think I have created the last balloon photo, I feel inspired again.  
This one, is for my little boy, who loves the hot air balloons, 
and when they fly over our house on still, crisp mornings, 
tries so hard to reach them.

Wishing you all a wonderful, daydreaming kind of a weekend.

A Trip down Melbourne Memory Lane

Do you ever feel like your heart belongs in two places?  
That you have two homes?  
That you belong here....but you also belong there?   
Today, my heart is here in our home in Carterton.  
Yet my heart is also wandering the city streets of Melbourne.....

The Start of the Garden

When we made the move last year, we couldn't wait to start on the garden.  
However waiting is what we did, as we seemed to be busy every weekend with other things.  
Now that spring has rolled around, and we have had time to think about each garden space, 
we have started planting.  Roses, ranunculus, sweet peas...I have plans for many more.  
A little bit of colour in the garden is so lovely.  As is expired 600 Polaroid film.

What is planted in your garden? Happy weekending to you!

Oh how I do love you Spring....

I love wandering the streets in the spring, with the warmth of the sun slowly erasing the cold of winter, 
with every sense tuned into spring....the blossoms, the birds, the blue sky.   

It really does feel like an awakening, doesn't it?

Spring, you make me smile.
