The White Shed - Online...

The White Shed

For those of you who haven't visited Letitia Linke's 'The White Shed', you should 'click' on over to view the beautiful range of homewares, furniture and other goodies.

Letitia has just announced her store will go solely online in 2012. There is currently a 'shed', and an online store. I'd love to have a shed like her's!

I've only bought a Butler's Table from Letitia, but there are many other items I am coveting for when the renovation starts.

Letitia's service is second to none and she is very gracious with her time. She returned emails promptly with answers to my questions and sent a reminder email when the tables where in stock, so I could complete my online order.

The parcel arrived in record time and at minimal cost for the size of the item. Thanks Letitia and good luck with the change in your business and family life. I know this will give you more time to spend with the family.

All the best to you for The White Shed in 2012!

Lights, Camera, Action...

Brendon has been writing a short film for a little while now. Refining the scenes, the dialogue, the direction.

It's all coming together.

He recently took advantage of some time off, and drove to the house at Pacific Palms to do some test shots and to determine lighting requirements. His friend Tass came with him, so it was also a bit of a break for him, and a chance for Tass to see Forster, Seal Rocks and a few other sights in the area. It was lovely to finally meet him. Brendon and Tass have been friends for years but I've never actually met him. I fell like I've known him for all that time anyway.

The two of them are off on a trek in Nepal sometime in the next year or so, and have been 'training' for more than 12 months now. They can only do so much in the fitness area, it's a bit difficult to train for the altitude though.

Brendon felt the test shots went well and even though we had organized extra lighting for him, it wasn't needed.

The plan now is to put the shots together in a B&W trailer, just to see how it all looks. If it's a success, I suppose I'll have to try and organize hair and makeup trailers for when the 'artists' arrive for the shooting schedule. Oh and the catering truck, Director's chair (no, have one of those), costume department....

Anyone know if Ashton Kutcher has to get rid of his trailer in the settlement?? From what I've heard, the size of it could cater for everything we'd need!

Some colour to brighten the day...

For no particular reason, except that I loved the colours together, I bought these gorgeous Gerberas at Woolworths a few weeks ago.

They looked so refreshingly colourful, I grabbed my little point and shoot to capture them.

I'm so proud!...

...of both of my sons!

You all should have heard me gushing about the birth of my beautiful grandson, Archie Michael, to my youngest son Darren and his lovely partner, Natalie. If not, you can read about the event here.

Well I thought I'd also gush about how proud I am of my eldest son Brendon and the photography work he does. And that he recently received recognition with a promotion! We are all so happy for him being promoted to Production Manager where he works.

Brendon and his girlfriend Sarah visited Darren, Natalie and Archie a few weeks after the birth and, of course, took some photos.

Birth announcement cards had been discussed and investigated, with Darren and Nat deciding on a company to go with. Brendon was talking to them about it and offered to do the cards for them.

Here is the result...

Isn't it beautiful! You can all see why I'm so proud, can't you?! Little Archie captured so perfectly!

If you are in the Brisbane area and looking for a photographer (shameless promotion here!), please check out Brendon's website and blog here. He'd be only to happy to come and meet with you to discuss your event and give you a quote.
