spring ramblings

Monday, November 07, 2011
I love the lighting in these photos, yesterday was a really gorgeous day. Just warm enough to wear my pretty little sun-hat and just breezy enough to slip on this ruffled cardigan. The tree these photos were taken under is perfect for a picnic and an engaging novella. Sunday was spent dancing around the house for ballet practice that takes place tonight. I was really happy when our ballet teacher, Kate, told us we were dancing to a song from one of my favourite childhood movies, Anastasia. 'Once upon a December' is such a magical song, and it's definitely bewitched me, I can't stop dancing!

P.S: Photo via Tumblr
I'm also planning on redoing my room in the Christmas holidays. I love the idea of collecting vintage dresses and hanging them up around the room. Any other ideas for DIY decorations? Have a lovely week!

Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog! :D

I totally love your outfit. Simple and girly. :D Wow! You're a ballet dancer? That's great! I wanted to learn ballet before but I haven't seen any ballet class here in our place. So that's sad for me. Anyways, I hope your dance went well. :D Have a great day!

Maybe we could follow each other? Followed you now! Thanks very much! :)

Thank you very much for your comment on my blog! I'm very glad you commented because that way I discovered your blog! I love it! It's so in the stye of blogs I love to read! Yes, yes, yes! :) I was surprised when I saw a Frankie cover on one of your blogs, then I remember you're Australian. Here in Spain, no one knows about Frankie. Imagine, my subscription costs more than a $100 :( But it's just my favorite magazine ever! And yes, let's follow each other! I'll follow you on Bloglovin' so I'll be updated. Follow me back?

Thank you so much for your kind comment. Frankie is an amazing magazine - I'm very flattered!
I have about 7 film cameras and a digital Nikon D60 slr. The film ones range from my Zenit B and E to an Olympus Trip.
Perhaps I will do a post about it and show them all!
Yes, I'd love to follow each other. I'm following you now

Once upon a December! Dancing bears, painted wings, loved that song! Didn't that ice skater Tara Lipinski dance to it and get a 10? I dunno getting carried away. Well if you are redoing your room, if you don't already have a vanity, I suggest getting one. I just redid a vintage one and Im in love with it!
