Church fete? more like church bonanza!

I love a good church fete, i'll admit it, but i am no fan of the early morning, no fan at all. So when my mum picked me up last saturday morning at 6am {what is this 6am i hear you ask? well i'm not quite sure to tell the truth...} i was less than impressed but the treasure i scored, SO completely worth it!

Along with the usual nanna baked delicious goodness (home made lamingtons thankYOU very much!) i stumbled upon a treasure trove of doilies and lace curtains, not to mention the woolen, multicoloured, knitted {circular} throw rug that i will have pictures of as soon as it's in off the washing line!

The book sections is always a winner, this particular time awarding my early morning wake up call with all these awesome little golden book titles. I don't know what to do with them there are so many ideas forming but something will come for sure!

Loving the knitting needles too, and some colourful splashes thanks to the belts and scarves table.

Mum got some great bargains too and then off to work it was for me, lamingtons in hand..what a day, and not even 8:30 am yet!

What inspires you?

I hate that feeling of being trapped, when you know the creativity and ideas are there but in no way are the showing themselves and you can't for the life of you get it out onto paper/ canvas/ the back of your hand...wherever.
...This is where i am, stuck in front of my desk with my mind running a million miles an hour with nothing to show for it but some empty redskin wrappers and half drunk coffee and a headache.

So here's the project, what inspires you? Or who? And maybe i can get somewhere or maybe it will help you too, i hope someone comes out a winner in this game!

Reindeer, Chocolate, Norsk & Garnes

So I’ve decided (keeping in mind that this is about the fifth time I’ve changed my mind about this since the new year) that I want to go to Norway. I really really really really really do.

And I was looking up cool things to do there and what to see and I came upon this (link to Norway website)…Reindeer safaris!! What an awesome thing to do, especially for me, I’m such a sucker for all things Christmas-ey. You get to go on tours through Forollhogna National Park and even if you don’t see any reindeer you still learn all about them and drink coffee on the mountain plains in the crisp mountain air..sigh..doesn’t that sound wonderful? It’s also recommended to stay at a farm in the mountain village of Vingelen, I wonder what that would be like…?

I also can't waste another minute not hanging out with one Camilla Garnes.
