Fun photo shoot

Last weekend I had the pleasure of a visit from my dear friend Saoirse, who was staying a few days in between her travels. As soon as I saw her fabulous new purple hair,I knew we just had to have a mini photo shoot. It was so much fun, with bubbles (detergent ones and bubbles of the alcoholic variety) and LOTS of COLOUR! Check out my awesome vintage sheet too, one of my best op shop finds as it's completely my colours and was even unopened,in the original packet!
Such a gorgeous girl, inside and out, and what a talented make up artist, I adore her eyeshadow(s). It was a wonderful day. I hope to do a few more fun photo shoots this year as I have some ideas up my sleeve and lots of props lol!

Pastel make over #1

Behold, my first completed project of 2012!
I've had this on my to-do list for a little while now, but finally went to the hardware store last week and bought a few pots of paint in pretty pastel colours so now everything can have a colourful makeover. The little shelf was from an op shop last year for only $2, and is now brightening up my ever evolving "craft" room.
 Note the light switch. I wasn't best pleased having this in shot but with limited areas to hang my little shelf what can you do, just keeping it real!
A pastel rainbow of vintage cotton reels, pure heaven.
Oliver wasn't the slightest bit interested!

New year vintage

Happy New Year to you all, I hope 2012 brings much happiness & inspiration to everybody. I am not one for resolutions but I am going into this new year with positivity and I really look forward to all the joys this year may bring.
I started off as I mean to go on by visiting my local car boot sale on New Year's day. It was such a glorious sunny summer's day and my partner and I picked up a few little treasure as well as some sunburn!
 I was drawn to this sweet plate immediately, I mean the colours are all me and the image is so cute. I did a lap of the stalls but I just couldn't leave it there, so went back and my lovely boyfriend bought if for me. The cotton reels and beads are from an op shopping day I had not long before christmas.
 Such soft colours, more second hand finds.
 I adore this cookie jar, it has to be one of my favourite things I've found, unfortunately the lid was broken on the way home, but I just super glued it back together. It ads to the character anyway.
 Love this tea pot and jug set. I ummed and aahed over these and left them in the charity shop (big regret!) then almost 2 weeks later on my next visit they were still there, so it was meant to be, right?
Gorgeous colours.
Here's to adopting many more pre-loved items from yester year!!
