Yawning through the Morning

Hello sweetpeas and good morning. Last night I actually edited my dream; it’s a really cool trick I can do ever since I had dream therapy as a kid. So every time I go to bed it’s like I’m settling in to a good movie. Yes I know I am a strange person so lets just looks at this cute little thing and forget I said anything…



Elephants are not sexy

“What you gonna do with all that junk all that junk inside your trunk?”

Who are we kidding elephants are NOT sexy. That are adorable and have been know to play the flute or paint pretty pictures, but they are not sexy. This was a Valentine’s Day card to the boy, I thought I’d make it this year. It is pretty much ripped off from one of my pinterest find called ‘Thirsty Elephant’  by Terry Fan

p.s. sorry for all the posts today, I am not even that into Valentine’s Day. I just missed blogging.

Nothing makes you feel more like a villain than a swivel chair and a cat –  (my discovery at a computer desk with my nan’s fluffy cat).

Breaking the Obvious

Today the boy brought me a present. I don’t know what it is but I like it.

This is a card from a site called ohhdeer.com it was made by a man named Mark Callaby. If you would like to see more of these delightful cards click here.

Copy Cat

I am more than a tad obsessed with Pinterest at the moment, it spins out soo many cool ideas; like baked marble necklaces, cupcake Ferris wheels,  chalk pens and plates with Lionel Richie’s face on it. Click here to see more. Novelty aside I have found the coolest gift ideas (although admittedly a lot of them are still novelty). Meet cat skirt:

Obviously I fell it love with it at first glance and wanted one. However my all my fingers are like big toes when it comes to sewing, so for Christmas the boy’s mum made it for me! So excited to wear it out and look like a big cat loser. I am starting to resemble the e-harmony video of that girl crying at the thought of every cat in the world, wearing little bow ties, in a basket, rolling around…wait, wait, it’s got me too now. Without further blabber or crying from me this is my new favouritest skirt in the entire world. Hope you like it!



Elephants on Parade

This wonderfully sweet pence is by Kristen and Kevin Howdeshell, whom just happen to be married! Check out more of their shizzle here.

Sharp Rain

Love this little guy. He is my new buddy and I shall name him Stu.

Stu was designed by Dimitar Tassev as a  theatre poster for young performers around 1971/2. Adda boy Stu, just look at him go!

The poster is entitled ‘Polychrome bird, blue ‘rain.’’ …I didn’t know what that word meant so I googled it, don’t judge me 🙂

I like the ruler straight lines for rain, they look sharp. Although whenever it rains on me the rain come from a 2’o’clock angle straight into my face. I guess Stu has all the luck!

Mad at Mommy

“Little Bunny is VERY MAD at his mommy.
She sleeps too late.
She talks too much.
She watches her silly shows instead of cartoons.
And she gets mad for no reason — just a few little bubbles on the floor.”

‘Mad at Mommy’ by Komako Sakai.

Just adorable. Click here to view the book on Amazon and to have a ‘look inside’.


Just thought I’d add a touch of colour to this otherwise grey day. Don’t worry colours like these bold reds and brilliant blues  still existed – they are just waiting for the right moment to appear.

This wonderfully weird number is by Delphine Durand. She has an amazing body of work, I particularly like her sketches. If you are itching to see what I am talking about click here. Alternatively just refresh my blog every second of every day till I upload more from her.  Just kidding! I’ll post some tomorrow.

A Bit Lost

This is Chris Haughton‘s owl from ‘A Bit Lost’…but…on a mat! Amazing.  Read more about it here.
