Lone Star State Of Mine

The more I hurt,
The less I feel, 
The more I know, 
The less I rest in this...
Lone star state of mine.

The more I hurt,
The less I feel, 
The more I know, 
The less I rest in this...

Lone star state of mine.

Say it straight,
Don't bend my ear, 
When I'm walking lost in an evening air, 
You two-step into my idle home, 
And tearing my song all up with minor chords now.

The more I solve,
The less I work, 
That can't be good for some boy out of love, 
Out of touch, out of lust, out of soul, 
n'Out of song.

Rest in peace dear river phoenix

Scribbling The Night Away

Photography & Fitness

Recently my boyfriend and I have teamed up with our friends to get fit. Since im not a real fitness junkie I drag along my camera and take photos to make things a bit more interesting. We go out at night and I've had a lot of fun playing around with the lack of light.
Hope you enjoy : )

Cutest Buttons in the World

Found these buttons today. Arent they just soo cute?

Old School Desk

Earlier this year I found a sad beat up old school desk sitting outside my local Bloomhill opportunity shop. It was begging for a new home and a good clean up. I could see beauty shining through and couldn't resist adopting another project. Everyone else dismissed its charm and thought I was crazy bringing home another 'piece of junk'. It was covered in stickers and graffiti but well worth the $40. I spent ages sanding back the years of dirt and grime, replaced the damaged shelf and gave it a few coats of lacquer. Shes finally finished and look at her now, isn't she beautiful! I have to say I'm a bit devastated that I didn't take a before shot to show my tables humble beginnings, but that doesn't matter. She will be cherished for years to come.

Book Bag

I made myself a new bag for my UNI books

Vintage Fabrics

I adore vintage fabrics. These are the latest additions to my collection. Eventually they all get turned into something new and are given a second life.

Vintage Dress Patterns

I have a passion for vintage fashion.
These four are new additions to my pattern collection.  I just adore the illustrations and dress designs, their so cute! Modern day dress patterns don't tend to fit me to well, they're always too big and the designs can be a bit boring. I recently discovered I'm actually small enough to fit a children's size twelve so its opened up a whole new hunting field for me. If only I had more money =(

Brisbane River Fire 2009

 Just some drunken fire works photography I did at river fire this year. I thought it turned out pretty cool.
