In this moment

My brother's butterfly collection
reading...The Diary of Anne Frank. Life is really about perspective. This book made me realise how important it is to find happiness in whatever beauty that is around you, even in the most dire conditions.

excited about...heading off to the Sunshine Coast next week!

ordering...a new cake stand. But I can't decide between this or this...any thoughts?

planning...for a fun filled long weekend with a dear old friend who is in town for a visit.

watching...David Attenborough's Frozen Planet. Nature is awe-inspiring and so so beautiful.

dreaming about...winning the lotto and how to spend my millions. Bwah ha ha ha!

baking...pretty cakes and perhaps a banoffe pie.

feeling...happy and contentment.

wanting...this incredibly beautiful drop-waist dress and scalloped plates like these.

grateful for...my loving husband and my naughty puppy.

loving...sitting out on the grass with the warm sun on my face.

collecting...vintage plates and glassware.

What is happening in your moments?

*This great post idea was borrowed (with thanks) from here.

I love vintage plates and glasses too! I want to start collecting too. I want to get some pretty tea cups and saucers and make them into candles.

Love this post :)

You have just reminded me that I need to watch Frozen Planet! As for the cake stand, go with the pink one, it's taller and stands out more I think! :)
