The Week That Was...13//1//13


1. beautiful native blooms in the morning sunlight
2.  Tig, dreaming (hence the blur)
3. fresh morning coffee in my new yellow chevron mug!
4. a little 'polka dot' cactus, ready for potting
5&6. my most recent creative endeavour - a repurposed Frankie magazine becomes a whimsical, twig and paper mobile for our bedroom. I love the way it gently sways in the breeze.
7. International Tempura Day! Any excuse for a hot date and some delicious sushi at Hana Japanese Sushi Restuarant
8. snapping some photos with Quinn...can you tell she was unimpressed, and trying her darnedest to ignore me?
9&10. we braved the intense afternoon heat to watch yesterdays breathtaking sunset
11. beeswax candles are the perfect accompaniment for Summer's wild thunderstorms - painting by the wonderfully talented Maryika Welter

  1. Beautiful photos, love the look of your mobile, very creative- and is that cactus in the shape of a rabbit?

    1. Ha ha, I never noticed the rabbit shape until now - how cute!
      I've read about gardeners who 'prune' this type of cactus into different shapes by plucking off pieces...I wonder if that's what has been done here.
