Photos of Days

Moments of days, captured using the Photo A Day prompts….

4 November – Table
Cookie pie from Thunderbird Cafe
Met my lovely friend Natalie for lunch. Naturally, we indulged in cake afterwards. πŸ™‚ Cookie pie from Thunderbird Cafe – yum!

5 November – I Collect
Souvenir teaspoons
Souvenir teaspoons! For a few years, every time I went someplace new, I’d hunt out a teaspoon to add to my collection. The idea being that whenever a friend came over for tea, they could use a teaspoon from their home town.

6 November – Music
Wooden xylophone
Our Little Man loves making music, so we bought him this colourful wooden xylophone while we were in Shanghai. He loves it!

7 November – Yes!
At a conference today, I made myself be brave and actually put my hand up to volunteer an answer to the presenter’s question. (Seriously, this was a very brave moment for me!) They picked me to answer, really liked my answer, and gave me a copy of their book as a thank-you. (Plus, he then came up to me in the break to thank me for the answer I gave, as it was the perfect lead-in to the next part of his talk.) Yes! I was brave! And it felt good. (Now to wait another few years before I’m brave enough to do it again…)

8 November – Someone I Miss
Wardrobe of dresses | Modern Vintage Cupcakes
Shallow though it may be, I miss the size/shape I was a couple of summers ago, when I could fit into all my pretty self-made dresses. But I’m nearly back there, and naturally it was all worth it. πŸ˜‰

9 November – Mine
Fabric-a-brac fabric and patterns | Modern Vintage Cupcakes
Fabric-a-brac today, and these were some of my spoils. They’re mine! All mine!!!! Mwahahahaha!

10 November – Book
BurdaStyle sewing book | Modern Vintage Cupcakes
Browsing through sewing books, trying to decide what to make for the November Monthly Stitch challenge. Perhaps the dress from the BurdaStyle sewing handbook? I quite like Casey’s version, especially if I then make it a shirt-dress style….

11 November – A Memory
Fluppy puppy toy dog | Modern Vintage Cupcakes
This little guy has been travelling around with me ever since I was 13 and bought him at a fair that I went to with my then two best friends – Fiona and Angela. He’s called Fluppy Puppy. (Coz, you know, he’s all fluppy/floppy/soft.)

12 November – Clouds
Clouds over Takapuna beach
Up in Auckland for work, walking along Takapuna beach after dinner.

  1. The last photo is gorgeous!

  2. i have a closet full of clothes that don’t fit yet. it’s amazing how much the body changes after pregnancy/childbirth, isn’t it!?
    great photos πŸ™‚

    • Oh gosh yes! I’m finding that things fit differently now as well, in odd ways. My waist seems to be higher at my back now, heck knows why that would be!!

  3. Loved all the collection – thank you for sharing life in your exotic location!
