green thumb

today i got my hands in the earth and planted tomato plants, hydrangeas and petunias (for a bit of colour in the vegetable garden) now that spring has sprung. i also planted a small herb garden: parsley, mint, sage, rosemary and thyme to be ready for when i move into my new apartment to keep on the kitchen windowsill. i also planted a daisy plant in an old tin billy i found in the shed.

pretty profit

i pulled the pages of this book - "some girls do and some girls don't"and framed them to sell at the craft shop in the town near my farm and am making a profit of $15 for each piece

picnic perfect

its perfect and such a sweet intimate picnic set up keeping the flies out!

this yoga place in Thailand gave me the idea of hanging a mosquito net from a tree with a blanket under it to lay in the sun

this sheer tent would be so much fun to make for outside at my farm to have lunch under this spring and summer

magic far away tree & enchanted wood

at my farm for a few weeks.. waking up to the smell of grass and fresh air and bathing in rain water from the tank followed by lying in the spring sun and flowers

fairy lights are comforting and create a notion of getting away.. which to me is vital at the end of the day.

i think ill play with fairy lights to make something exciting for christmas this year and make my own christmas baubles too..

frocky horror show

lauren hutton said when she grew up she wanted to be "a wise woman". when i read this it made me feel free, to do all the things i wish to do and grow, to be the person that is dying to live a life without imaginary boundaries.

i am 20 years old with passion & creativity
i don't want to be a poet, but i will write poetry
i will not claim to be a photographer but let me take collections of photos
i do not want to be a model but i will enjoy expressing myself through clothing
i am no translator but let me be fluent in english, spanish, japanese & human dynamics
i am not asking you to listen but i will sing & learn to play guitar
but one day i will flourish in the art of interior design, and you may call me an interior designer.

essence cannot be measured in time

time is an 'illusion' but without it we can't see change, and without change we cant depict the good times and the bad. both which are our reasons for living no?

today was a day that chose an incredible change in my path, whilst others make their inevitable opinions on my direction & question my approach, predicting the outcome of each next persons choice - its only fair to say that each one of those people choose their life direction just as i do mine, and if it were me in their position then their outcome would not be theirs it shall be mine?

ultimately if you make a decision based on what others think you should do, then you will lead a life that reeks odors that are not your own. time is an illusion, it is not about how long you are here but how much of that "time" you spent being you, and making decisions you based upon your collectivism, your findings and your knowledge gained - the essence that is you.
