Liner notes: I kept my elbows off the table

So this is a bit of a crazy wild selection of my most recent photographs.

This was taken one our road trip to camping and it is the quintessential Aussie landscape to me (at least the one familiar to me). Brown grass, Dr Seussian trees.


Today, I was invited to high tea to celebrate Inspector Climate's Grandma's birthday. We went to the Windsor hotel and were delivered an array of gluten free goodies.





I finally finished my hot water bottle cover, but decided to give it to my mom for Christmas. It turned out quite well, although a bit funny shaped at the corners!


For the first time today, I wore my home made tie dyed leggings sans skirt to yoga. I'd like to pretend I rocked it, but I'm pretty sure two guys in a car did a double take and then said "what the hell is she wearing."

We have our dresser, hand made by Inspector Climate's grandpa and dad, in our house now! It's amazing and it's increased our storage enormously, which I greatly appreciate!




I also finally got my paws on The Bloggess's book after numerous attempts to borrow it from the library or even talk of borrowing it from Melbourne on My Mind. So excuse me while I go read it.

What did you get up to this weekend?

  13. I can't tell you how many crochet projects of mine have ended up with oddly shaped corners! Your water bottle cover still looks great, and I'm sure it will get a lot of use.

    Also, leggings are THE BEST! :)
