Tomorrow night we're planning on heading out to see some Roller Derby action. I painted my fingernails red.

I am knitting a corn scarf

Using Lincraft Snowball yarn to (hopefully) make a scarf that looks like variegated a corn cob. Planning on adding a fringe of fine yarn at either end to look like corn silk too.

I like things that look like other things.


Bloggity blog:  Pinkerton Manor

I moved to Canberra for five months and now I'm back in Brisbane.  I introduced Louie to sushi while I was there and now he's mad for it.  He's such a champ!  Best 6 year old ever!  I also taught him about comebacks and he totally pwned me a bunch of times.  Little twerp.  Anyway, I don't really post much on lj anymore, but I still read my friends page pretty regularly.  So, hi and everything!

I have a proper blog at http://www.pinkertonmanor.com/ if you're interested in craft/art/fashion/cooking/things.  :)


Get on up.. Like a meme machine!

* Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.

* No captions. It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.

* They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.

* You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

Did I mention I use Twitter?  Probably not.  If you too use Twitter you could follow me if you want to.  I guess.

Looks like I'm pretty crap at updating blogs and journals.  Who knew?  Anyway, all I've really been doing lately is work and playing house.  I unpacked some more boxes that have been sitting around since we moved in (no, we didn't move again - they've been sitting there for 6 months+).  The bedroom is nearly completely organised, the kitchen just needs the cupboards sorted out and then it's on to the mammoth task of the spare room (such a big mess for such a small room).

I've also been working on fixing my boots and they're nearly done.   Just have to get some ultra fine sandpaper and make the patching all smooth and then give them a few coats of sealant.  I'm pretty happy with them so far too.  I managed to match the colour almost perfectly.  Before and after photos when they're done.  Oh, and the before and after photos will be taken with my brand new camera!  Mum and Matt got it for me for my birthday.  It's pretty ace.  Here's a photo I took with it.  I haven't taken many photos yet, but the so far I'm really impressed with the camera.

Anyway, I'm off to unpack another box and put the washing away.  Ciao.


Frost/Nixon: a review of sorts

Posted on 2009.01.31 at 21:20
Today Matt and I saw Frost/Nixon.  We were kind of disappointed that it went soft and tried not to offend anyone, but still thought it was quite good.  The cast was absolutely outstanding.  I now have a major crush on Michael Sheen as David Frost.  That hair!  Those sideburns!  Add to that the fabulous wardrobe and I'm sold!  And the eyebrow raising and smiles are just delicious.  Anyway, if you're in any way interested in the Nixon/Watergate thing I'd totally recommend seeing it.


I've been making things

Posted on 2009.01.20 at 18:16
I made a dress from an old peasant skirt.  I styled it after American Apparel's Le Sac Dress.

I started fixing my boots.  They're 'pleather' and I scuffed the top layer of the stuff off when I went on a flying fox.  So, I'm painting over the scuffed but with a similar colour and then I'm gonna spray some sealant over that.

I also bought a linen handbag  with brown pleather trim on eBay.  It sucked.  It was described as "Excellent condition - no damage", but when I got it there was a hole, a bunch of brown stains and the inside smelt of stale orange juice.  So I complained and got my money back (less postage).  The seller said she didn't think the stains were that noticeable.  So, she knew there was damage, but listed it as no damage anyway.  Anyway, I washed it to see if I could get the stains out and the 'brown' it was listed as came off and showed the original pink underneath.  It had been painted.  Wtf?!  Oh and the linen parts disintegrated.  That seller will be getting negative feedback from me. So, seeing as I payed $5.50 to have the stupid thing posted to me I'm going to use the lining to line a bag I've decided to make from an old pair of cordoroy pants.

Oh and I repainted some ugly wooden photo frames.

I'm gonna post it all on my site eventually (like by next week) with photos and shit.


Feeling good

Today I ate breakfast, worked an eight hour shift, walked home from work and then did some yoga when I got home.

And just now I won an auction on eBay for a nice big handbag.  Yay!
