Happy New Year

Hi everyone....a Happy New year to you all.  Well, after the fun I had participating in 7 Vignettes in December, I decided to give January a go also.  These are the first 4 days....the theme this month is Colour and the first days were Sparkle, yellow, blue and green.  I am having fun finding the appropriate colours around my home.  Needless to,say, I had very little difficulty finding blue things!!

Final 2 days of 7 Vignettes

The final two days of 7 Vignettes were "Shine" and "Monochrome"...I must admit, I found these two days the easiest probably because I already had ideas from when I first saw the list of themes...

And just to sum up the whole week....

7 Vignettes days 4 and 5

The themes for days four and five were "wish list" and "wrap it up".  I must admit, I really struggled with the wish list and posted my photo very late yesterday.  As for wrap it up, I had so many ideas and decided to do two....here they all are

Child's Play

Day three of 7 Vignettes is Childs Play. I am trying to ensure a link with each day's vignette and am using a small Christmas Tree I bought last year to help me achieve this.  I have also popped some of my favourite miniatures under the tree along with a Rudolph a friend made.

7 Vignettes

One of my favourite blogs and Instagram people is Jen at The Interiors Addict.  Each month she sets her Instagram followers a challenge called 7 Vignettes.  Each day for the first 7 days of the month there are pre-set themes where anyone can take a photo of the day's theme and share it on Instagram.  I have wanted to participate in this for some time now, but whenever I see the standard of what others are posting, I feel a little intimidated.  Anyway, I decided to take the plunge this month.  Here are my first two days installments...day 1 was "tree" and day 2 is "white".  I will continue to put the photos here on my blog, but you can also follow me on Instagram.

A few days away

I returned on Thursday from a lovely few days visiting friends who live in Bright.  The weather was stunning and it was lovely to catch up with special friends.  I especially enjoyed walking around their garden and was inspired to do some work at my place.  Here are just a couple of the myriad photos I took.


This last photo is one I took when I decided to take drive to Mount Hotham.  Unfortunately there was quite a lot of cloud cover which meant I was unable to get any decent shots from the summit....it was also about 20 degrees colder than Bright...and there a small amount of snow still on the ground.
