An occupational hazard for designers and such types I suppose.

Protracted it from some strange sector…Do you concur?

On that note, I’ll leave you with some Leo overlay. Happy Friday

The Beverly Hills souvenir plate made in Japan.
Thrifted last year in Brookvale, Australia. The irony.

Don’t you just love it?

carltonware cadbury chocolatte mugA collectable Carltonware chocolate chunk mug and a [secondhand] Ikea cup sit on a shelf. Which one is going to be bumped off by clumsy maniac descending a ladder and smash into pieces?

As you can see this is not a joke. Just Murphy’s Law. Whoever he was.

Symbolically occurring during the week I quit sugar. Not Sarah Wilson style. Just substituting. Like wine for chocolate. Or cheese. The water not so much…

Hope you’ve had a good break this long weekend?

vintage ceramic white mouse

For my Mother. A quiet resilient practical country mouse who ran a sheep farm singlehandedly.  She married the city mouse and as the story goes, it didn’t work out…

We returned this weekend to witness said country mouse after 25 years as a Singleton, marrying a great Dane. I was lucky enough to be chosen her Maid of Honour. [She has four daughters and my name was drawn out of the hat.]

Not the first time I’ve been a Bridemaid, the fourth actually, but definitely one of the most special considering 2 of the 4 are no longer marriages. Possibly accurate statistics?

An unforgettable experience to say the least, and this I vow to remember.

All that I am, and all that I have,
I honour you.
