silhouette of the soul

i recently saw a painting by Hadley Hutton which inspired me...

to create a decorated silhouette

of charcoal & watercolour combined on peach paper

Today is a pure palate of white splendour!

*the pinkest of days*

what a lovely saturday my Mum, youngest sister & i had as we wandered around Queen Street mall. {i love that people always think Mum & i are sisters :) "No thats my oldest & my youngest & i have 3 more in between"}

ending up in this quintessentially pink shop

filled with the elegance of afternoon tea{we ended up having raspberry & pear loaf from a cafe nearby, & though the rasperry cheesecake & tirimasu seemed to sing to me, i had to banish that melody :) }

& the smiles of children

{or squeals of delight}

{...or the more heartfelt admiration}

adoring these

& loving these.

there is pink for the big girls

& shoes full of love

i was definately looking at these through rose coloured glasses

oh & crocheted scarves!

its not pink but, sparkled at me!!!

Hope today this sparkles for you too!
{Please visit Beverly to find out more about her wonderful event!}

Happy Pink Saturday!

"i saw the angel in the {glass}
then carved {till it appeared}."
~ Michelangelo

white bows

a room full of light

showing love as the pearl

& luminous


a symphony of birthday wishes

wished upon a star

Today is pink lovehearts & white sprinkles, skipping lightheartedly & hope-ing indefinately...
