90 degrees clockwise.

sometimes its right in front of you, you just need to turn it 90o clockwise!
The bookshelf you see above is actually my old horizontal cupboard i have made useful.
I actually saved this from my old residence in Brunswick, so not only is it a great feature but completely free!
Maybe you can check out some of your furniture & see if it works too!

Walter Beau.

This is Walter Beau's name tag....
and here is his adorable face...

at the moment he is learning "in your bed" & "shake".
We will be heading to puppy school soon, waiting to complete vaccinations!
This weekend he will be 8 weeks, he's about to have a growth spurt as his front paws are getting bigger. (how cute!!)
I brought Walter Beau from Tintagel Kennels, (located just outside of Geelong).
I named him Walter Beau as I love the name Walter; (which means Army General - german) & Beau is his dad's name; (which means Beautiful, Handsome - french) - I have a german/french border collie whom speaks with an american accent!

while i was gone!!

I moved address...this was the last of my old room.
My pieces above were randomly moved to position, as I often look with my creative eye I captured this set up. My 'MAN' has come in handy for some fashion construction!

I decorated my new bedroom.
I'm loving the white/baby blue colour theme; it reminds me of country summer days.

I enjoyed the afternoon sun fall softly through my window.
my wooden man whom i haven't named has been balancing as though he's walking a tight-rope. My cat Colby has knocked him off a few times while playing investigator at night.

I gathered together all my nail care products & created a good size nail kit!
A past time ritual when I visit my best bud Amy has been to watch her manicure her nails. Something I've always thought was handy was her little case of items,  fit for a professional finish.
Due to the move I was able to finally gather all my separated polishes & buffers to always have well maintained hands & feet! (I have sugerbaby clear colour on at the moment, a change from my bright reds or blues)

I made the best pasta I have EVER eaten in my 23yrs!
in the latest issue of relevant magazine; flicking through I noticed some 2010 achievements to aim for, one of  them was to create a master dish. Tick for that one!
The only sad thing was I ate it all alone! :(

Valentines Day / Library Lovers Day
Unlike any 14 Feb I've had before, I dressed up in my pretty red dress, wore tan heels, placed on a gorgeous heart necklace and topped it off with long flowing hair; ready for a day at library. Some would say I was little red riding hood, as you can see the basket of heart chocolates made the childhood story character come to life. No big bad wolves thank goodness!

I have arranged pretty flowers!
(1st flowers were picked from the garden & placed on the kitchen table)
Above flowers were for my brothers fiancĂ©’s birthday!

I purchased a Border Collie Puppy!
His name is Walter Beau & I love him very much. In our first week of bonding I have taught him to 'come', 'sit', 'beg' & 'no'.He's a smart pup!

its books!

For some girls its shoes, others sunglasses; me... over excessive buys or borrows of books (& stationary). I have found some awesome books at my library, thank goodness the limit to borrow is 50! What’s even better is its free! I say get on your bike & ride merrily down the road to become a member of your local library; the choice is endless.

Waking up 5 minutes earlier in the morning does make a difference to your day!
I experienced this the other morning:
 I had a time to eat breakfast, leave a tidy room & style my hair, amazing! Training a sleepy head to get up takes baby steps.

My hand print above is for an accessory I am working on, can't wait to show you the finished product.

17 Montogue st. 'larky art!'

it just so happened that i got my creative paws on this interesting book while working at the local library.
Lucky for me the travel section was having a spring clean. I didn't even know what the book was about until i opened it a few days later.
This inspirational artist of 17 Montogue St, Glasgow has published a collections of cleverly composed envelopes from over a few yrs. The fasinating thing is the many ways Harriet came up with communicating her address; from dot-to-dot, word puzzels, drawn sign language, cute comic conversations, maps, photos, floor plans, colour by number and so on.
here are a few i enjoyed:
this is a travel card that Harriet wrote on and 6 months later recieved back in the mail!
this is air mail from NYC. I can just imagine her doodling away in a little NY cafe with daily routines happening behind her.
I love looking inside houses, i also like to imagine the layout, thankfully with the help of this floor plan I could decorate this little apartment as i continued on with the happy little find.
