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.

Apologies to readers

Hi all, My apologies to anyone who has tried to look at my blog in the past week or so...it seems I may have had a bug....I had a widget/gadget thingy on my side bar and it seems that whenever I tried to look at my blog, this other thing popped up....it wasn't until I managed to get into my settings and remove the offending thing that I can now read my blog...so hopefully you can too..Sorry for my ramblings!!! 

I have been busy with lots of things.  One piece of news is that I am hoping to set up my own Etsy shop in the next little while so stay tuned for news about this.   I am really excited about this new development in my life.  
I am also going to have a small market stall next month and I have been busy making things for that.  Here is a little sneak peak of what I am going to be selling on my Etsy shop...until next time.....Lisa

Indigo

On Saturday I attended an Indigo Dyeing workshop at Kraftkolour....a supplier here in Melbourne of all things related to fabric dyeing.  Because I love anything blue and white, I bought some indigo supplies earlier in the year and had a go at indigo dyeing myself.  It was such fun yesterday to get together with others to share the experience.  It was like opening presents each time we withdrew the fabric out of the dye vats and opened them up to see what results our folding, tying and pressing came out like.
Here are a few of my favourites.
