Picture Perfect Sundays!!!

Good morning to all of my lovely readers!! I hope you are all having a fantabulous weekend?
I woke up early to write this post before I head into work for the normal "double show Sunday".

It's the most beautiful morning here in Hamburg. The sun is giving me lots of energy for the day ahead.
Also the thought of ice cream after the show tonight gives me something yummy to look forward to! It's become a ritual of mine to treat myself to an over priced tub of ice cream on a Sunday evening. It finishes off my working week perfectly, I sure do look forward to it!!!!

I have had a great week, it's been a busy but very good one! I've taken lots of pictures and have had a blast editing them with the applications on my ipad. I've been uploading them to instagram and have had a good response from people following my posts.  I am sooooooo loving the instagram application! There are some really amazingly talented people about and it is a real pleasure to be able to share my pictures with so many people. 

This week has been cloudy and has felt very much like autumn! so these beautiful sun flowers have definitely brightened up the apartment. They also seem to have done the trick of bringing the sun along to visit us! I bought them from a local shop. The shop only sales seasonal flowers so there are only ever a few varieties of flowers to choose from. At the moment the lady that owns the shop is stocking Sun Flowers,  i just couldn't resist buying a bunch. 10 Sun Flowers for €2.90,  a bargain if ever I saw one!

This picture is actually a couple of years old. Its of me jumping on the beach in West Whittering, in the south of England. I was in my final year of dance school and went on a short vacation to this beautiful little town.
I was staying with a friend who's family owned a little house on the very edge of the beach. The house was so cute! It was an old train carriage that had been converted into two bedrooms, living room, bathroom and kitchen. It still had all of the features of being a train. It had the old train windows and some of the walls were the original carriage partitions. I must try and get some pictures to share with you. It was such a nice vacation!

My felt tip pens! I just love them so much. Nothing much to say about them.  It is one of my favourite things it to have a nice set of pens to draw with. MAKES ME HAPPY!!!

I finished another one of my projects this week! This is another crocheted bag from Attic24. I have made three of these now. They are quick and easy to make and look great. I made this using the base of the cushion I had made two weeks ago. I told you I would put that cushion base to good use! A bag for my "in use" wool.

Finally, I have a selection of pictures that I took and then edited on my ipad. Some fun pictures to smile about!





I was always told as a child "don't play with your food!" Not sure if drawing a smiley face and sticking woollen pig tales on an avocado counts?

Happy Sunday!!!!
