For a little Friday cheer amongst yet more rain, I thought I'd share my peony. My VERY FIRST home grown peony! I think I like their blowsiness and ruffles far more than I like roses. A pity that they take some time to mature and aren't terribly prolific. Oh well, I guess some things are just worth the wait.

As I look at this photo of a yellow dress against a grey wall with a piece of liberty at the neck, it's hard to see what's wrong.
No visions of Vicars are floating past.
Maybe it's the colour against my skin.
Maybe I need to alter the pattern more.
Am I ready to pull it all apart and start again tomorrow?...

I was lucky enough to have a weekend in the city recently. A good friend offered to have the children and our hotel was gratis. So, I spent a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon wandering around Surry Hills. These shots are the window display at paper2. Isn't it beautiful?
I loved paper dolls as a child and spent hours cutting out the clothes and swapping them around. No, I didn't puchase any of these, but what lovely eye candy.
The Victorian looking Alice in Wonderland characters are my favourite.

What is so seductive about these sweet little patterns? I could barely contain my excitement when a package arrived from Paris.
