are you getting the hang of this 7by7 routine yet? 7by7 is seven days, seven photos. its an overview of what i've been up to this week. so what have i been busy with this week? the usual, espionage, seduction, mystery, adventure. and also these things:
now that its finally not so darned hot all the time i've had that urge to get back to my roots, as a hooker: crochet, dears, crochet! i'm continuing work on a mega afghan for our bed. i've given up the squares for now and i'm working on circles from 'beyond the square crochet motifs' by edie eckman
i went to visit my friend at her shop and she showed me this pocket shrine she's had for years. i'd never seen one before, but its so tiny and fascinating! i'm pretty sure it would've blown my mind completely had i seen it when i was eight years old, oh how i loved making miniatures! the photo is pretty much actual size.
hey kids! try delicious and nutritious SPACE BURRITOS! actually it was just my delicious falafel wrap i had for lunch at a really great organic cafe in daylesford. the only interstellar thing being my garlic breath after lunch. totally. worth. it. yum!
also spotted in daylesford at 'lost in the 50's', were these old fashioned soda bottles. here we see fanta with a groovy ridged bottle and 'cottee's passiona'. cottee's is a staple of every australian childhood, they make cordial that's powered many a sugar high, for generations. the upstairs level of this shop was an amazing trove of magazines from the 30s-70s.
isn't it just divine when your snack of choice matches up with your current reading? i'm sure my family is grateful i'm not reading 'the electric koolaid acid test' next week.
wedged in between my welcoming little 'friends with you' figures is a mysterious new wooden stranger! she's a DIY kokeshi doll, and i'm looking forward to customizing her as soon as i can pry those colorful two away from her. maybe they're having a friendship convention?
and get a load of this! another one of my 'friends with you' figures tried to get involved with my lark purchases photoshoot! i think he was starting to feel threatened by all those colors and just needed to make his presence felt. what a cutie though! i love 'friends with you'
well that was my week, chickens! how was yours? did you eat space burritos? did toys infiltrate your photos?
i hope you have a great weekend and see you back here on monday!
