Rainbow Bedroom....


Image via flickr
I LOVED Rainbow Brite when I was little!
Rainbow, Starlite, The Colour Kids and the Sprites all lived in a wonderful place called Rainbow Land.
The Sprites would mine colour crystals into Star Sprinkles. Then with little star shaped cookie cutters that they attached to there feet, the Star Sprinkles were made.
If the world was looked dull and gloomy Starlite would let them know. Starlite was Rainbow brites horse that traveled along rainbows looking over the land.

No wonder I like this room a lot!!

It feels great to have the time to be crafty.
After I finish this one, I'm going to do this one.
Thank you to the nice person who sent me the link!!

I just need to convince my house mates now.

Shopping in the City....


I got a new dress.
Had dumplings.
Had a long neck or 4.
Caught up with some friends.
Now i'm in a sleepy beery haze.
I'm glad my sickness wasn't a longer event.
You can achieve so much when your head is minus the bricks that were once there!!
I'm really looking forward to December!! And tomorrow too!! Actually this entire week to be quite honest!! YIPPEE

I was bound to find some friends in my hair.
I think 24 years and not one single little creature living in my hair, is quite defiant!
I mean they are kind of cute, but then I could maybe be trying to justify the fact that they shouldn't be there, that hearing the word "Head lice" is all you need to start scratching at your head.
Pippi Longsocking = my Kinder style guru from now on!!
.....Now where can I get me a monkey?

This is...somthing that I'm surprised that I like


image from here
Car warmth. But not from the heater. From the car being in the Sun and getting all warmed up on any day apart from in the summer.
I remember falling asleep in front of my bedroom window in the sun when I was little. I also loved drawing in my Nans sunny drawing room too. But Car warmth I loved the most hands down.
Thanks to Vic for the theme (it's had me stumped all week) and to Angela too.

It was hard to cut them up, but keeping them folded up didn't seem fair to them.
