Floral Friday - Disney Flower Quote

This months Floral Friday was to combine a flower and a quote and being the lame-o I am, I choose a Disney quote :) I actually won tickets to see Mulan in 1998 and subsequently became obsessed with the movie, filling my one-of-many scrapbooks with clippings on the film :) I loved that the message was totally dripping in girl power and I think that this quote, The Emperor says to Mulan near the end of the movie, sums it all up perfectly :)

Floral Fridays is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along, please email Trishie (trishie@underlockandkeyblog. com) for next month's theme

Horse friends

One of our neighbours has horses, actually we don't know if we have neighbours or just horses because we can't see a home. I think I might like horse neighbours better than people neighbours anyway :p

Horses - neighbour

As far as we know the white guy is a dude who likes to lick way too much and the brown horse are ladies, (although possibly we made that up) oh and they like apples :)

Ben's keychain collection

Remember when I said Ben and I are in strict competition over who has the cooler key chain collection (I do!) well I finally got around to photographing his. I think we're going to have a Facebook comp to see who wins but feel free to voice your own opinion in the comments below. I think it's going to come down to who has more friends really :p

You can check out mine here.

I had this revelation the other day that Ben and I optimise the stereotype of little kids and their genders.  My favourite colour is pink and I like all things cute and as you can see above Ben likes swords and guns and tools and toy cars :p

The best thing that came out of all this (untangling his collection was certainly not) is that I've been wanting that cat keyring Ben got in Japan (for forever) and he finally gave it to me! (who ever said persistence never pays). I also love that it looks a little bit like Gremlin!

Flower Pressing

Life has been a bit up and down of late, so I thought I would pop in and show you guys that I finally pressed some flowers!

Now I just need to work on my print gocco design and start making some paper! I've been collecting a bunch of old paper scraps, it's amazing how much paper gets discarded (or at least thrown in the recycling bin) bit excited to be able to recycle them myself though :)

Hope everyone else is doing okay, I know there has been mega downs for people around me of late, possibly linking to some solar flare activity. If you're at all interested in the way our universe can have an effect on our lives, I definitely recommend you check out Elizabeth Peru on Facebook, I like to tell everyone about her because I find her information really valuable but I also understand its not everyone's cup of tea. I may even look slightly silly for mentioning her but if it helps just one other person out than it's worth it to me :)

Byron Bay Street Art

Despite being able to fill this entry with lots of street art radness we did have to hunt it out, it's not that Byron bay doesn't have a street art culture it's just a lot of it has an advertising spin. It seems like a welcoming place for expression but I think it could be taken even further on an artistic level :) I'll let the photos do the talking and perhaps they tell a different tale!

And that concludes the byron posts!

Thanks Byron for showing us a good time - we'll definitely be back again :)

Byron Bay Road Trip - Day 3

Sadly our last day in Byron but what better way to spend it then checking out the beach and eating :p

Unfortunately we only got to try their breakfast burger but I can say it was the bomb - so much awesome garlicky sauce!!

I had to stop and ask this lady if I could take a photo of her dog, the impression she gave me let me know it wasn't the first time someone had asked :p she told us he weighed 86 kgs and actually had stunted growth because of all his allergies :( 

A slightly smaller dog :)

And the rainbow shop :) love you Byron!
