Summery Blooms

And now it's time for finding new hobbies part 3! Actually I just tried making some floral arrangements from the lovely flowers that are in bloom outside. Top one is for our living room -- bottom is for the kitchen table. We obviously have a bit of an obsession white vases (the bottom one is just a vase set inside a fruit bowl). Have a good long weekend everyone. I'll be working all weekend long :(.

While trying to explore my non-outfit related interests, I've been attempting to take a black and white self portrait that really shows "me".  No make-up, no glasses, no hairdo (that one wasn't hard for me). Just me in my natural state. As self-centered as it seems to take a boat-load of pics of myself, it is good practice. I actually found it hard to pick one picture that really showed "me". I guess there is a bunch of sides of me that I couldn't quite capture all at once. None the less I picked one. The winner shows how my face is pretty much all the time. Squinting to see (even with glasses on) and thinking really hard, dry lips and messy hair. I'd love to see anyone elses self portraits sans make-up and everything. Show me the real "you's"!

This is my cats bad self -- her whiskers are outta control!

Suitcase -- Before and After

Hello! Remember me? I know it's been awhile. I've been quite busy in real life as of late. I'm still unsure when I'll actually be back to blogging for realzies but I though I'd pop by with a before and after I did today. Before I get to that heres an update on what I've been up to (in case you actually wanted to know! haha) I have been working like crazy as usual but I've got another job! I'll be designing kitchens now. I haven't started yet but I'm a little excited. Some relationship changes happened (I wont bore everyone with that) for the better and I'm having so much fun and am so happy right now! YAY for changes! 

Onto the before and after. I have quite the collection of suitcases that I find and mean to fix up but don't get to do it as much as I'd like. This one was pretty damaged on the bottom of the inside so I had to re-make the lining for it as well as the joining middle-piece. I painted a owl on the front for fun! Oh and the inspiration for my owl came from here.

My (late) Weekend:

I know I'm a little late on the whole my weekend thing but real life has been strange lately. As you can tell my whole weekend was pet related! My friends came up to visit me and brought there dogs along. Of course instead of taking pictures of us hanging out we took pictures of our dogs hanging out. They / we had so much fun together.

You may be hearing crickets around this place for the next little bit.  Not only have I been working like crazy... I'm also in the middle of a quarter- life crisis and there are many changes going on personally, professionally, romantically... you name it, I'm changing it. So the poor ol' blog might be left to the wayside while I sort myself out.

Nap Break

Talk about a photo over-load. This is one of my favourite spots to take pictures.... so a million pictures were taken. I also had an outfit block and hated everything I put on... eventually I settled on this. I'm sick and the dress is comfy so my outfit criteria for the day was met. I'm going back to napping my sickness away now...

dress - gift
cardigan / shoes - thrifted
