My Cute Little Purchase

This is my water bottle for work, so many customers have asked me where I got it from. I actually think they want to buy it for their kids but who cares I think it is the cutest water bottle in the world and thought I would share it with all of you.

Don't forget my vintage postcard giveaway finishes at the end of the month so if you haven't entered hurry up. If you do like my water bottle they are $4 from Big W what a bargain.

Weekend Wonders

We woke up bright and early on Sunday morning to go on one of my favourite bush walks, at Springbrook National Park. The walk we chose was the Purling Brook Falls which is 4.5km long with 450 steps and you get to walk under a massive waterfall.

Only about 500m into the walk we met this huge goanna which stopped for some photos and then promptly climbed up the closest tree. There was a lot of Asian tourist who were a little intimidated by this guy.

Well after a very long walk we came to the glorious falls they are so breathtaking. There was even a rainbow at the bottom of the falls to make it look even prettier. I had to put the camera away when we walked under the falls as you get slightly wet.

What I also enjoyed about the day is that everyone we met on the walk stopped and had a chat with us. It made me realise that there are still happy friendly people out in the world. Hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoy the rest of your week.

Walking The Cat Part 2

What can I say my Mindy cat is loving his walks and doesn't even struggle when we put the lead on him. I'm ready for him to put the lead in his mouth and run up to us meowing, how cute would that be.
Thank goodness it's the middle of the week, 3 more sleeps to the weekend. Bring it on is all I can say.

Fly Away Home

Last week I had a day off work and went to GOMA The Gallery of Modern Art. My favourite section was the kids section where you could make a bird and hang it from the ceiling or put it in a little nest in the wall. I was in awe with how talented kids are.Some of these birds were amazing. I decided to do a takeaway bird and took all the utensils to make a bird at home. All I can say is my bird was beautiful so beautiful that I decided to put his little nest in a tree in our park. After tying my bird up I ran home to get my camera to get a awesome shot to share with all of you, and guess what by the time I got back somebody had taken my bird. All I can say is that I hope my little birdy is being loved and appreciated by someone out there.

Happy 2nd Anniversary

I can't believe that I have stuck at blogging for 2 years, I normally get bored of things after a couple of weeks. I think it's because of the lovely friendships that I have made along the way. So thank you so much to my lovely followers, I adore all of you especially my regulars. I have the cutest giveaway to celebrate this milestone so keep your eyes open, it will be coming soon. So today's for celebrating, I must depart and go to Bunnings to buy more paint to finish my paint job in our spare room. I know that's not really celebrating but there will be a party once this room is finished as it's going to be the spare room, aka my craft room.

Tree Of Life

Tree of Life is one of my favourite stores they have the best home wares, clothing and jewelery for the bohemian look. I always buy a couple of dresses in summer for festival season. I find there clothes actually last and don't shrink all fall apart after a couple of washes. This is not a add for Tree of Life just me telling it how it is in my eyes. I am definantly buying that green dress it has my name written all over it.

Walking The Cat

My little Mindy Cat had kidney failure a while ago, and we are very lucky to still have him. One thing we had to do when we got him back from the vet, was make him a inside cat. Mindy wasn't very happy about this, but has grown used to it after time. Well I had the brain wave of getting him a cat lead so he could still go outside on adventures. I would be with him making sure he doesn't eat any grass, cause my little boy loves grass. These are photos from our first walk. He is slowly getting used to the lead and is happy for me to put it on him now. So we will see how this works out. Look at that sky its so clear, even though it is freezing here at the moment.
Have a lovely weekend XXX
