Hannah from banana smoothies for strawberry sundays likes vintage salt and pepper shakers (see some cute ones from her collection here) and makes pretty things. You can see more in her shop tramfriends where she sells them with other things made by her friends. I like her blog for its simplicity and pretty pictures. Shes' very nice, too.

Guess what I did. I resigned from my job. I did. Last week I packed up my desk, and put my pirate bobble head and novelty tape dispenser in a archive box and walked out, like they do in the movies.
Right now, I am entirely self employed. Today I had a nap. I just had breakfast for dinner.
I have a business plan. I have business cards, and postcards and a marketing plan. I have the feeling that my ignorance of what I'm undertaking is protecting me somewhat, I'm not as terrified as I should be.

Sitting in the sun at the markets with a friend.
I saw a Twilight poster and laughed and she turned to me and said, 'you know, I know you well enough that even if you liked Twilight, we could still be friends'. Apologies to any fans out there, but it made me laugh. (and yes, that is another yellow phone. Because four is just not enough)
Planting seeds for winter veges.
I made labels from chopsticks and duct-tape, an idea I got from a tutorial I saw which used cheap yellow pencils, but despite searching I've forgotten whose blog it was. Please let me know if it was you. It's a grand idea.
Making giant burritos with boy housemate, and eating too many.
He is a bad influence on me. We went grocery shopping and bought chocolate biscuits, iced vovos and multiple lolly packets. Multiple.
A flea market find! WOOO!
At the markets I bought 4 typed of potatoes and 2 kinds of sweet potato to roast with this organic chicken. Sunday roast.

Here are the deer I finished last week, I think they turned out pretty deer-like after all. They're in my shop now, and I'm cutting out some more in lots of colours including pinks, greens and blues to suit all deer lovers.
On the weekend my bestie and I made a cubby house. We sat inside drinking wine and telling ghost stories. She's gone to Christmas Island for a month, volunteering and teaching asylum seekers English, which I think is a very noble thing to do. She's a noble kind of person. I'm trying to think of that instead of missing her.
Here he is again. He doesn't like photos much, can you tell? Sometimes he laughs when I take photos of things on the street or my lunch, but I don't mind.
