Pretty in pink.....!


There are a few 'happenings' today here in Oz..but to start with it's the first day of the month and that means 'pink' day in the CDP group. I've been saving this one because...well it's pink and because it's too gorgeous! Aimee, baker extraordinaire, queen of the birthday cakes created the Dolly Varden cake above for her four year old second cousin's birthday a few weeks ago and yes it was as delicious as it looked. Seriously if she ever gave up her day job she has a talent to fall back on n'est pas! Also, happy Father's Day to all dad's here in Australia, I couldn't resist this shot of a young 'fashionista' disappearing with her dad into Gordon St Garage, a very cool new cafe in West Perth..... Lastly, although it doesn't really feel like it weather wise, it's officially the first day of Spring..there's not even a small chance of any spring cleaning for a while, not while the kitchen is a disaster :) Hope you're having a good weekend, take care.....Click here to view all participants of this theme day

  2. The first one really works for me because of the thing blue edge of the table cloth along side the orangey wood of the table, the lines converge towards the subject doll. I like the street shot as well it creates interest.
