Who would have thought my old paint peeling concrete swimming pool could look so magical on a dreary rainy morning.

somewhere in France???

I am loving instagram more since snailblazer put me onto vintique. My only gripe with it is I can't see the frames very well on my iphone and sometimes they aren't quite what I expected. Still I adore this image of Kitty at the beach yesterday, it is so sweet and nostalgic. With those swimmers and the boats it looks like she is in France somewhere.

october photo a day challenge

I am trying to get the hang of instagram. I thought the best way of finding some inspiration and motivation was to join in the photo a day challenge over at fat mum slim. It looks like a lot of fun. I will be posting my daily pic on instagram and maybe adding a couple here as well. If you are joining in too let me know so I can follow your pics. I am lottielulu on instagram.

Kitty style will be making a comeback too once the school holidays are over. I have just done the big wardrobe overhaul and cleared out the winter clothes to make room for all the pretty summer dresses. Don't expect many smiles though. Kitty has one beloved vintage dress at the moment and if she had her way she would wear it every single day.

eurofest 2012

We love our local Eurofest. There is so much delicious food, rides for the kids, beer for the daddy and dancing, singing and even and jousting performances. Just a whole afternoon of fun. I forgot the camera of course so resorted to instagram pics on my phone. As much as I love the idea of instagram I have never really fallen in love with it. I guess it doesn't help that I hate taking pics on my phone. But I couldn't pass up capturing the potato on stick. It was tricky to eat but very delicious.

spring time swap

A new girl in a new dress. I took part in a spring time swap over at we play with dolls and Lyndell sent me this lovely spring ensemble. The newest girl in the house was the first to put up her hand to play dress ups. She doesn't have a name yet. I am thinking maybe Lark or Penny. She is only here for a little while before she goes for a dolly makeover. I don't think she will mind waiting until she gets home to be christened.
