I heart the fringe!

Every year when the fringe comes to town. My heart skips a beat with happiness! it seems to be that every second year we have a big year and then a quiet year, this year is the quiet year, we are on a strict budget but we have been able to buy tickets to see Adam Hills for a special birthday treat. Tonight we were able to go into the Garden of Unearthly delights and check out the action!

My Favourite corn vendor!
The Ferris wheel, this year has a new possie in the garden. 3 years ago before Mr T and I were going out, we went to the garden with a group of people and we rode the Ferris wheel. :)
Mr T with his squid!
One of the pretty tents hosting different shows each night for punters to come and enjoy!
More photos to come, I took more tonight but I so tired! Time for bed! Happy Fringe everyone! xxx

flea market finds

I have had a couple of great weeks with getting back into op shopping after a bit of a hiatus! So I thought I would play along again with flea market finds over at Sophies.After seeing these jars one day I had to go back and get them...the op shop was closed on the saturday but i just couldn't get them out of my mind and had to go back first thing on monday and hurrah they were still there, I went a little further afield from my place and found this pretty tin, which was housing the shops buttons. Unfortunately none of the buttons were to my liking so I snaffled the tin! :) It's a nice size...not sure what it will house yet but the jars are going in the pantry for baking goods! For more flea market finds or to play along head here!

my creative space

This week I thought I would play along with my creative space, I have seen some pretty ones in the past and thought this would be my week, having said that when thursday came round i was so busy going to the Gossip, then working ridiculous hours on Friday that it has taken me til today to actually play along!
I found myself being inspired to hold a birthday craft-a-noon this year to mark the auspicious occasion of turning 26, it only happens once after all! so some little invites for the party goers!To check out some more creative spaces check here and play along if you want!

Wednesday Wish list

I am totally coveting my friend Penny's bike! She rode over last night for small group, and when everyone was leaving we all had a go at riding it!
You sit super straight on the seat, the handle bars are a good height, it's the sort of bike I rode as a kid, where you meander along. I really want one! BUT unfortunately the price tag does not permit! So it's on my wish list for now and maybe one day we'll be able to get some sort of bikes to ride!She's even put some fairy lights on the basket, powered by a battery pack! it's fun!
Also on my wish list is a packet of these! :) But that will have to wait for a few weeks!

I spy with my little eye, something starting with M

On Saturday night we went to a birthday party and it was a M themed dress up party! I like that sort of thing. Mr T hates it! BUT he did end up dressing up as a Mexican (along with about 8 other people! ) There were also....
March Hares and Mental Notes

A Martini and Mr Mistoffelees...(one of the cats from cats!?)

Mexicans, martians and Micheal Jordan's!
Medusa...the greek goddess with snakes in her hair (Anna looked very pretty and had lollie snakes in her hair! it looked great!)
An M &M expert
More mexicans!
There was miss muffet..with her spider!
There was Tim being silly with the Martini olive!

And the Birthday Boy was the real deal the RED M&M!
There was also people from the Maroon appreciation society, mobsters, maps, Marvin the martian, musketeers, Marie Antoinette made an appearance too! Marathon runners, millionaires, Murray the Red wiggle...and MACGYVER! that one made me laugh extra hard!

Happy Valentines day!

flea market find

This week I got to go to 5 op shops on 2 different days which is a bit of a treat for me. It has been a bit of drought for op shopping for me but after checking out this ladies blog i have been inspired to get back out there. And Sophie just happens to host a flea market find every sunday! so this week I can actually join in! yeyeyeyeyeyWe went to a fancy dress party last night and I needed a shirt for my costume, I found this one out the front of Goodwill! For $1! I was very happy! Because I will probably only wear it the once! (more photos to come tomorrow of the party!)
knitting needles for $1 a pair, a pretty tea cup to add to the collection, pretty sheets to cut up and try so new things with and ties for my costume and to try some different patterns with...perhaps when I work it out I will post a photo!

I dropped off some stuff at lutheran community care and saw some nice jars that i really wanted to get, BUT didn't have ANY money on me! when I went to see if they were still at th shop yesterday, the shop wasn't but they were still there, so first thing monday i am going to go and get them!

To check out more flea market finds or play along check out Sophie's pretty blog and her giveaway this week.

my place or yours? Kitchen LOVE

I have to be honest...I don't really like our kitchen! so when I saw that the theme for my place or yours was Kitchen love...what do you like about your kitchen I felt like I wanted to dress my kitchen up so it looked nice for some photos...I do like our fridge cause there is a pretty baby on there and cute magnets!
We have bright green cupboards, drawers etc....the lamenex or whatever on the bench top is coming off in spots and is looking a bit festy! It gets grimy quite easily, i think it's just the place we live, it's old and we're in the flight path of the air port lots of cars etc going by. BUT having said that we are very fortunate to live in such a great suburb, with reasonable rent because of Mr T's study.
Align Center
I do however like the things in our kitchen! This knife set we got for our engagement is fantastic as well as the chopping board...and of course the drinks to keep us going! The chart is a cooking conversion chart, my mum went a bit crazy at her old job with the lamenator! BUT the amount of times i've had my fingers covered with butter, flour or milk it has come in handy when i haven't known how many cups 15oz is! So it stays on the wall all the time!

To play along or to check out more kitchen love check out here and for the theme queens themselves check out here and here! Happy Saturday Everyone!

crazed lunatic

That's what a resemble when I can't access internet from home for a WEEK, I have PMS and it's stinking hot! Well today is a little bit better. I have been unable to blog for the last few days because the internet is down at home, the buildings internet got disconnected by mistake. Now we have to wait til Telstra connects it back. I know I sound like a whinge woo but I never realised how addicted I am to going on the net it's almost a daily routine and for the first few days it was OK but now it's turned me into a crazed lunatic! well OK not that bad but I am feeling the effects!

I am a bit silly! anyway this post comes to you from the library!
happy thursday everyone, whatever you find yourself doing!
