A Week of Sweet Words & Pretty Pictures

It's Friday already....where did the week go??!!.....and it's time for a round up of my week in pictures.  Another busy week with much of it viewed through the lens of my camera.
Saturday saw me taking the kids to visit their favourite toy shop....
Ever heard the saying "like a kid in a candy shop?"  Well it's a bit like that with my kids.  Also the saying "bull in a china shop" could apply perfectly too.  Visiting is a mixture of joy and terror.
I stood out by a dam....
showed off my new necklace...
...flashed my butt...and got photo bombed by some cows.
I dusted the bike off and took the kids out for a hoon.
I partook in a little bit more weird behaviour and took more photos of myself...which involved a tripod, a camera, a timer and a fair bit of running.
I took photos of a stone mason for the magazine.  He was a very clever and spectacularly bearded fellow.
I did an interview and more photos at a winery.
And tried to get a little bit 'arty' with my shots.  Unfortunately I didn't get to drink this wine.
And this photo...which I posted on Instagram...has apparently won me a card and a pen from Kikki K, a really gorgeous shop, and website, that sells the loveliest stationery.    You had to put this quote somewhere in your photo.  It was all in aid of Valentine's Day, which is just around the corner.  Hmmm...better remind my husband!


  1. I like farm animals, fields and farmhouses

  2. I adore your photos! Congrats on winning with your instagram photo! That store shop looks fantastic! I just love bunnies so that first photo really made me smile! I really loved your necklace too and the cow photo bomb is so cute!


  3. Lovely post Amber, very nice pictures! <3

    I have a new outfit post up on the blog, would love to know your thoughts:

    1. Thank you Helen! Loved your black dress on your blog. Very stylish and classic!

  4. The winery looks very nice...shame you didn't get to drink anything!
    P.S. Thanks for the postcard =)

    1. I'm not big on wine anyway! No worries about the postcard. Saw it and remembered how your liked 'Skippy'!

  5. What a great week! The photograph of the wine glass and bottle is absolutely gorgeous! I love it, and it's a pity you didn't actually get to drink the wine! I love the photo too of you on the bike! Hah! Really shows real-life which is so cool. Congrats on the pen and paper from Kikki-K. I just went to their website and you're right it's a lovely little place. I hope they ship to the US?!!?!?

    MUCH LOVE!!!

    1. My pen and valentines card arrived from kikki-k yesterday actually. It's very sweet. Then I went on to order a few more things from their online store...couldn't help myself!
