Her time has come!

Oh i am so happy that Kate Winslet has finally recieved an Oscar in recognition of her work. She is so amazing and beautiful and talented and one of the few actresses in hollywood that i admire.

The hubby and i watched Titanic yesterday in celebration. It's so funny watching that movie (ok, not funny, actually devastating) but who knew when i was a just a kid when that came out, that both Leo and Kate would go on to become my favourite actor and actress?!

And this has absolutely nothing to do with this post but i thought i'd share a pic from a pirate party on the weekend.

So the question now is, who is your favourite actor and favourite actress and you can only pick ONE of each. Tell me one girl, one guy, and why for both, i'm so curious!

I love Johhny Depp & Michael Cera too (yes i cheated and mentioned more, but i'm allowed, it's my blog hehe) but number one favourites are Kate and Leo.

In a few days i'll share who the number one girl guy are in our little blogging world!

The quiet things that no one ever knows

Give me some pretty paper, stencils, an old typewriter & scissors and let me pass the time

Click here to enjoy more
It's been a long week filled with computer viruses and long, boring hours at work.
This week i have a wedding to look forward to and two extra days off work, so i have a smile on my face.
If you've been promised a package from me, i haven't forgotten, it just takes so long to make so many and to save my pennies to send them so far away. But they will arrive in good time :)
What is in store for you this week lovelies?

Edit: Just to clear something up, as i think there may have been some confusion... All the artwork i have displayed on my blog is my inspiration, not my own personal work. I always always provide a link to the original source of the artist, so i'm sorry that it seemed like i made these collages when i didnt :( I didn't mean to mislead anyone, i just put them up because they're beautiful and inspire me to make something beautiful myself.

Happy Valentines lovebirds

(Via Le Love)

"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds."
-The Notebook.

Open your eyes

Do you ever find a photographer or blogger that makes you think- why is their life so wonderful and mine so dull?

Yyellowbird does that to me. I would like to enter her world for a day.

I'd sit and think outside in the glorious sun

I'd explore old buildings and make up stories about the people that once lived there

I'd curl up to sleep and dream of other worlds

I'd play dress ups with my friends

And relax in my perfectly messy room

Wearing the most beautiful clothes

And playing like a child

My house would be full of beautiful things

And i'd holiday in a rustic old campervan

Wouldn't that be fun!

One more thing, i have been given another award!

Candace at My Fair Lady has given me this:

I'm also meant to write ten facts about myself, but i feel like i shared enough with the Honest Scrap award so i'm going to skip straight to passing this on!

I'd like to tag...

all that really mattered were the stars in our eyes.

“People have stars, but they aren’t the same. For travelers, the stars are guides. For other people, they’re nothing but tiny lights. And for still others, for scholars, they’re problems. For my businessman, they were gold. But all those stars are silent stars. You, though, you’ll have stars like nobody else.”

“What do you mean?”

“When you look up at the sky at night, since I’ll be living on one of them, since I’ll be laughing on one of them, for you, it’ll be as if all the stars are laughing. You’ll have stars that can laugh!”

And he laughed again.

“And when you’re consoled (everyone is eventually consoled), you’ll be glad you’ve known me. You’ll always be my friend. You’ll feel like laughing with me. And you’ll open your windows sometimes just for the fun of it… And your friends will be amazed to see you laughing while you’re looking up at the sky. Then you’ll tell them, ‘Yes, it’s the stars. They always make me laugh!”

- Le Petit Prince

Coughing up colours

she hung with thieves, kicked up dirty leaves, she was a maniac, no ones heart attack

she got around, slept on the bad side of town, she was cooler than you, way cooler than me

she was true, all blinded and bruised, she didn't give a fuck, no she had given up, she was alive

she was caught on fire, she was everything, she was all of this

she opened up and laid it all right there, she said, I don't mind, no, no I don't care, I'll help you shovel out my shallow hole

and I know, I know they're threatening, but at least we're not the ones carrying, such heavy heavy heavy stoning stones

and yeah I know they'll get you down, they'll do you in and they'll drag it out, 'cause me and you, we are one of a kind.

she liked to lose, never wore Sunday shoes, she found her luck in wells and corner, stores and jails, she was crazy

a downtown kind of baby, always dangerous, she got me down on my knees, she made it rain, she called the wind and then it came

oh, with the wave of her hand, she brought the sunshine right in, she was the sky

beyond steeple and the choir, oh, the preacher's amen, his hallelujah child

so when your bones are broke and you're all alone, and the fog's so thick you can't see up close, just know that I will end up strangled, too

and when the floods they come all rushing in,and the boat is full and you can't get inoh, it's okay if you don't want to swim

and when you're swallowed up, oh, don't you cry, just give right in, don't try to fight, 'cause baby I wouldn't pay no mind, there's nothing you can do.

they'll have you coughing up your colors
they'll have you coughing up your colors

they'll have you coughing up your colors
they'll have you coughing up your colors

she sang the blues, out of time and out of tune, spoke no silver spoon, only simple truths, she was a friend, stabbed backs and broke plans

she would give you her coat, or put nails through her hand, she was wise, full of magic and life, oh, you could see it in her eyes

she was more than this, yeah, way more than this, she was everything, she was all of this.
