Ramblings and Op shop finds...

Ive just been fooling around with the zoom on the new camera. Ive never been able to take great close ups before so this is a real treat.

In other news check out these goodies I found at the local op shop

I love the detail is this little plate.

Have a great day. Im off to craft!

Brown Owls, Something in the post and this is....

A great night was had by all last night at the inaugural brown owls meeting.
We all got busy turning our hand to stitching. While some of the gang were obviously old hands, many of us were new to the craft. Go to the flickr group to check out the pics.
It was also lovely to meet some bloggers face to face. Amongst them retro mummy, loobylu, and curly pops to name a few. Pip & co did a fantastic job of providing a warm, cosy atmosphere for all of us. It was lots of fun and its not to late to join in!

In other news, this arrived in my mailbox late last week. My little purchase from leah's shop. I'm not exactly sure what I'll use it for yet but I have a few ideas running through my head.

And finally this weeks "This is" theme was . . . Me Taking A Picture of Myself In the Mirror With My Favourite Accessory.

So this is me, my new toy (camera) and my ring (Christmas present from Gorgeous hubby). Its not a great shot of the ring (my photography skills still leave alot to be desired - despite new camera!) but trust me its devine.
Have a great week!

Latest Project...

I borrowed the idea from an article in Real Living magazine.
I picked the frame up from a place selling old windows and doors just near Winchelsea.

With a fair bit of sanding and cleaning it became...

I want to fill all the frames but Im waiting to get just the right pictures. I'll update you guys again when its complete.

In other news, this weeks "This is" theme (from one red robin) is proving to be a challenge. Ive never posted a pic of myself before and Im not really sure if Im up to it. Lets see what the next few days brings.

Also the first Brown Owl meeting is not far away... only 3 more sleeps.

This is.....

Meg's sunday lunch...

Cheese on toast. How very gourmet....but she loves it.

To see what everyone else had for lunch today, check out who is playing "This is" on Angela's blog.

In other news, I joined Brown Owls today and also dropped over my hearts to Mikes. I was pretty short on time, but it was nice to get up close and personal instead of viewing from afar.

Enjoy your week everyone.

Ive been tagged by the lovely Curlypops.
The rules of the game are:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog
So... here we go then

1. I love banana and cheese sandwiches. In saying that, the cheese has to be a good hard tasty variety and it really is best on fresh white bread. Try it... you wont go back.
2. I have no idea what a " meme" is or what it stands for. Feel free to enlighten me!
3. I have tried just about every method to give up the cigarettes. Patches, drugs, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, Smoke Enders. I havent succeeded yet but Im still trying (week 3 this time round).
4. I'm anally punctual
5. I collect (apart from crafty junk) writing books. But Ive never written more than a few pages.

6. I dream of living a simpler life somewhere in the country. (You know, chooks, horses, fresh air etc)
7. I have a tattoo. I dont like it. I wish I never got it. I tried to get rid of it. It got infected. Now it looks deformed. End of story.

Now in terms of tagging others, Im sure many of my fave bloggers has done this before. So apologies if I tag you. Feel free to join in or not ....

Oh and one last thing.
Have you noticed? Up there... top right..... in the About me section.
Ive ditched the study!!!!!!!!!
Yippeee, I feel free. Now I can concentrate on what truly makes me happy.
ps Thanks to kwoozy for providing me the link.

Technical Help Wanted

Does anyone know how to put a line through text?
I want to change something in the "about me" section, (no, its not the giving up ciggy's part!)

Heres the pic of the Roman Blind I promised last year.
Considering its 2nd hand fabric, it's turned out ok.
Have a good weekend all

Here she is people....

...and this is the last image you'll need to endure from my old Cannon 2.0 megapixel A40. The new addition to the family is the Fujifilm Fine Pix S5800. She has 8.0 megapixel and 10x optical zoom. I'm off to play!
Have a great weekend.
