Making my own stationery is my newest hobby. These envelopes were created using vintage wrapping paper I snapped up from an op-shop for 20c a piece!
This is the glorious selection of goodies from the French bakery I ventured to with my family last week. Those macarons were scrumptious!
What I've been reading lately... I finished The Notebook in the space of five hours (one of the most beautifully written stories I've ever read and not to mention a can't-put-it-down read). I'm halfway through The Help and it's excellent so far. The Lucky One was marvelous too. Nicholas Sparks and Kathryn Stockett are truly gifted.
This is the cute frock I received from Darlene a few weeks ago! I only just got around to taking pictures. In real life it's a lovely, rich, plum colour and complements my pale skin perfectly. Thank you, Darlene!
Today was quite chilly (the cooler weather is finally upon us Aussies) and I loved wearing my rose tights for the first time. They were so warm!
I surprised my Mum on Mother's Day with some delicious pancakes drizzled with chocolate sauce. I love her more than words could explain. ♥
This was yesterday's outfit. I love this navy ruffle blouse, it goes with just about everything in my closet and it's surprisingly cosy so it's perfect for cooler weather outfits! And, as you can tell, I'm a little obsessed with plaits... it's makes me feel like a child again!
And, I just had to say another thank you to each and everyone of you! I was so surprised and delighted at the response to my anniversary post. Thank you for all the heartwarming emails and comments; you made me feel so special.
