Oh Darling Hearts

Druzy Agate
I put little stock in the healing powers of gemstones* but the glittering saturated colours of druzy agate make my heart beat just that little bit faster.

Geode Ring $98USD

Ice Queen Ring $98USD

Wild Watermelon Drusy $95USD

and the one that started it all:

The Druzzy Agate necklaces made and sold by the lovely Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere.

* and I doubt I ever will.

Stars and Bombs
The stars indicate targets and the 289? the number of rounds fired.

Alas, poor Capt. Yorick
I call this photo Alas, poor Capt. Yorick**.

* It's adorable. I love it.
** hee! I find it too amusing. Sigh.

Week Thirty-Eight

365 in 2009!

Sunday: I made brownies for Saturday lunch. They didn't last 6 hours.
Just before Midnight on Saturday I started making brownies for lunch on Sunday afternoon. The brownies were delicious and didn't last even 6 hours. One day, perhaps, I will remember to post the recipe.

Monday: Cupcake! for helping a coworker
A co-worker gave me a cupcake as a thank you for helping him on Friday.
It was delicious and worth the proof-reading and re-wording.

Tuesday: the Poppies are dying
The beautiful poppies are dying.

Wednesday: Impromptu Box-Brownie Photoshoot
I loved the light when I took the photo of my goat horns so I shot my nouveau Box Brownie as well.

Thursday: Golden flowers at Golden Hour
Kowhai, a golden flower at golden hour. A dark smear behind is our car.

Friday: Somes Island from the train
Matiu/Somes Island seen from the train on the way home.

Saturday: Jayne is going to the ball.
Jayne finished her ball dress (she made it!) & I played photographer.


Saturday: Alexander Wang hair
Like so many others, I wore my hair in a loose side plait. Inspired by Alexander Wang SS10.
I really don't like this self-portrait but I left it until Saturday and I really had little choice.
