W is for...

I don't know about you but I am the queen of schlepping. aka toting stuff around. As in,

" I just have to schlep these cupcakes to the reception."

I found these cute monogrammed bags and accessories from the Wedding Chicks. They probably wouldn't be great for cupcakes but you get the idea. They would make a great gift for helpers. You could use them as welcome bags for guests at a location wedding filling them with treats and guidebooks from the local area. You could even add a nice bottle of wine. Or some gin. I like gin.

I love me some tote bags. (filled with gin and cupcakes)

Bench candy

Some people were not as excited

I'm excited. It's arrived. All shiny and perfect.
I haven't been this excited since I unpacked my Dyson...
I'm about to spend a few wonderful hours beating egg whites to my hearts content.

If its not owls...

Just quacking along here.x

Strumming my pain with his fingers

singing my life with his words
killing me softly with his song
killing me softly with his song
telling my whole life with his word
killing me softly
with his song

It seems my friend owl has a sense of humor.
He has influenced some frogs and cicada's to sing back up.
Pretty impressive.

It the late hours of the night he was most certainly challenging Ms Flack. The owl must be a she and possibly going through a bad break up.

Hey we've all been there.

Its going to be a long day.
That's all.x

PS I am aware that the picture on the older entry was not a picture of an owl that lives in Australia. Thank you to the person who pointed that out.

W is for Wedding's

So its Oprah's last season as you will already know but a few days ago as part of her "best season ever", do you know what she did?
Vera Wang was her guest and they gave away 5o dresses to future brides in the audience. Imagine that.

Hello I hear you are getting married. We would like to give you a Vera Wang wedding dress. Just because.
You get a wedding dress! You get a wedding dress! You get a wedding dress!

The brides also received a $4000 honeymoon accommodation voucher and two American Airlines travel vouchers.You would have been cranky if you were getting married and the show you saw was about those crazy Judd sisters.

Vera was also launching her new White Label wedding line throughout America. Not Australia. Just America.

Hear more about her new label here.

PS: the name of that movie is The object of my affection.. in case you were loosing sleep over it last night

For all my reality tv junkie friends don't forget the block is starting again tonight! Bring it on!

Hello.. Do I need you?

The answer (always) is Yes.
Please buy me.

Ebb and flow

Some things are hard to define. In most cases I look towards my pal wikki for answers..
Ebb and flow:
To decrease and then increase, as with tides; a decrease followed by an increase, as with tides.

Thanks for that wiki. I can always count on you. There was also a definition about hydroponics but I was thinking more figuratively.

Anyway, I'm following a very interesting blog at the moment and its got me thinking. I do that sometimes. When I'm cleaning usually. I do my best work with Pine o clean. Life and or the universe or whatever one believes in, has a funny way of getting you to a place where you don't necessarily think you want or need to be. I thought I would be somewhere ALOT different right now to where I am currently. But I'm not and its ok. And I will get there.
I think I'm currently in the middle of an ebb. Or a flow. But things are looking up and moving on. Either that or these new vitamins are really doing wonders for my general outlook on life.

And here are some pics of my garden in full bloom spring fest at the moment. Bella has been sneezing and snoozing and loving it! Oh and an Ice cream from a new shop.. It was 18 degrees here today. I almost felt the need for a t shirt. But I didn't, I just had an ice cream. It was good.
Did I loose you with the pine o clean gag. Nope still here. Good then.
"Head up young person"..and all that crap.
That is a direct quote from A Jennifer Anniston movie, I can't remember the name.. the one with the gay best friend... that she falls for. The school teacher. Hello did you think that would work out?
That's all x

How to look good naked.

My mother and sister laughed and said it was stupid.
"But it contains caffeine." I heard snickering.
Let's see who's laughing when I arrive looking thin and glamorous at the 2011 Lake Como wedding after a long international flight.
So there.

I've been told it works and the source is highly reliable but is wanting to remain anonymous for fear of being outed as a beauty product junkie.

No I don't condone "liquid diets" however this is a topical treatment. IE you don't drink it you slather it on your large white thighs and hope for the best.

Sunday Riley liquid diet and disrobe available from Bergdorf Goodman

In other news. I have none.
Have a great weekend.

The secrets out

HE discovered the missing toblerone.
What toblerone?

Don't you just love a good card?

This made me smile.

I always cry in Julie and Julia when Julia child's husband Paul says,
"You are the butter to my bread, the breath to my life. "
I really enjoyed this movie. I love an honest love story.

Anywhoo went a bit off track there. That damn owl has shaken me to the core.
This card, from here

Flowers for a year.

Images from the potager
Wouldn't this be nice. Flowers delivered every month for a year. This would make such a gorgeous anniversary present. Or any present really. Or just because.

This beautiful idea comes from a local shop the potager (previously twigg and blossom) in Berrima, Southern Highlands.
They have a gorgeous range of homewares and of course flowers. They also have a scrumptious daily menu of lovely treats. What's not to love.

I'm dropping by this weekend.
