Eye Candy

Pip put me onto this flickr user…and Kana* has some mega-cuteness in her photos. I loved this one, think I’m getting a bit of a “thing” for Bambi!

The lovely JewelGirl tagged for the ‘8 things about me’ meme, so here we go, I think I have already done this one, but I love a meme!
1. Each player starts with eight random fact
/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their
own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. A the end of your blog post, you need to choose
eight people to get tagged and list their name.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling
them they’re tagged and to read your blog.”

More things about me:
1. Even though I ate LOTS of them as a uni student, I still love 2 minute noodles, and am always happy to partake.
2. I am easily overwhelmed by life, events, and a full calendar. This is mostly due to my depression/bipolar, and I need lots of quiet time for just me.
3. I would like to be able to swing dance, dress up like a Rockabilly chick, go to a dance party and be a hep cat. Alas, I’m not a very good dancer.
4. I must always go to the toilet before I leave the house. I think this is a habit instilled in me by my parents. However, on family drives, we’d always have to stop so dad could go to the toilet.
5. I have about 5 “regular” tea cups at work, all with varying states of dirtiness. Right now I have a tray full of dishes on the corner of my desk waiting to be washed. The fairies haven’t taken them away yet. Meh.
7. I have no concept of time…an hour turns into a day, a day to a week, week to a month…and I still haven’t done what I was meant to do, say, six weeks ago.
8. I LIKE Facebook. I know people say there’s exes and old schoolmates they don’t want to find (ignore! ignore!), but there’s also old friends and family members that I didn’t talk to enough, and now I do regularly via Facebook chat. That’s gotta be a good thing.
9. Bonus one: I like Britney! ahahahahh!

Umm, who hasn’t done this? Let’s tag:
Modern Day Pioneers
Two Cheese Please
A Deed Without a Name
Sparkly Green Knickers
Life in the Dome
Air Hair Lair
Scissors + Tape

…Okay. And if you’ve already done it, just give us 8 of anything. 8 Things about your children. 8 Things about your pets. 8 fave TV shows. 8 Things you hate about school holidays. 8 Things you like about public transport. 8 of anything!

A good thing

Vintage Thingy Thursday : tinnie time

All Aussies love to crack a tinnie! Especially me, and a couple of weeks ago (back when I actually had some money, ha ha) I ordered this gorgeous vintage tin from the Tinnie Girl. The other day I collected it from the post office where it had been patiently waiting for me…and hurrah! Such goodness!

A lovely vintage chocolate(?) tin, filled with two pieces of vintage material, vintage buttons, vintage thread and one of my fave things ever, embroidery floss (am I the only one addicted to the stuff…I keep buying it!). Of course the hard question is what to make with my new crafty stash??

If you’re looking for a gift for a crafty girl, check out the Tinnie Girl shop, and for more Vintage Thingys visit it’s new home:

Good morning!

One of my sights around the house this morning before work. No the puppies didn’t want to stir. Don’t blame them…it was pouring with rain outside. Good snoozy weather.
