Hi everyone. I’ve been away for a while and I apologize. It’s a long story and I’ll fill you in another post. Today though, let’s just enjoy these gorgeous chocolates from Sugar Harvest Chocolates in the Yarra Valley. My friend gave them to me for my birthday, which means I’ve had them for two whole…Read More
And now for something completely different.
A work friend’s husband is in a heavy metal band called Forklift Assassins. They were performing in a little bar nearby last night, so a group of us from work decided to get together for dinner and drinks and then headed to the bar to see the guys perform. I’ve been wanting to shoot a…Read More
Five Minutes with my SMAAK Handbag – Regular Random
While I was in Amsterdam, I spent a couple of hours wondering around the city on my own, and discovered a wonderful handbag store called Smaak Amsterdam and immediately fell in love with about 5 different bags. I was particularly drawn to the yellow bags, although the pink and they grey bags were also fabulous.…Read More
Paris – partie trois.
And now for the Louvre – oh to have a few days to spend here. What a spectacular scene. We drove through a little “tunnel” of darkness which opened up onto the magnificent square – I was not prepared for the beauty of this spot. If I had time, of course I would have hopped…Read More
Up Close with a Pale Pink Tulip
I’m coming to the end of my Amsterdam trip (I’m writing this post on my last night, on May 8th), and I’m coming to the end of my tulip photos. This might be my last tulip post, I hope you’ve enjoyed them with me. I have loved them. x desleyjaneRead More
Paris – deuxième partie.
The Paris love affair continues. Today, photos from the Académie Nationale de Musique – the Paris Opera. What a stunning building, and I’m still fascinated that the Parisians have the opportunity to go there every day. Next time, I need to go inside, I’m told it’s gorgeous too. x desleyjaneRead More
Pink & Peach
This is the most classic shape, I adore it. There was one other that was completely pink and it was stunning (you can see it among the photos here). This one has such a beautiful graduation of colour from pink to peachy apricot – divine. x desleyjaneRead More
Five Minutes with French Macarons – RegularRandom
I picked up these macarons at the train station on my way back from Paris to Amsterdam and shared them with my host the next night after dinner. But of course, I had to give them the RegularRandom treatment first! Love the colours, love the different effects we an get with saturation, love the flavours!…Read More
Paris – partie un.
Oh Paris. I’ve always wanted to go there, but have never been before. In the last couple of days before my flight home from Amsterdam, I took the fast train to Paris, for just a day trip. I took a ‘hop-on-hop-off’ bus and saw the sights – even to make me desperate to come back…Read More
We drove to just outside the city centre of Delft, but the bus is not allowed to enter, so we walked about 15 minutes into the centre. Of course, on the way, it started to rain, so we dashed into a hot chocolate shop to stay warm and dry until it passed. I met a…Read More

Royal Delft Ceramic Factory
I adored Delft – what a lovely city. The Royal Delft ceramic factory was amazing and I loved getting into the details of the behind the scenes work – the tools and unbaked pieces were fascinating. As soon as I saw the artist painting a tiny clog, I again knew I had to get out…Read More
