Lost

May 31st, 2012 — 10:13pm

If anyone in Melbourne has found a navy Moleskine notebook full of girl drawings, that could be mine. Email me, please! I’ve lost my sketch book and I have absolutely no idea of where or when! I know it’s gone but I can’t stop thinking about it.

 

School shoe alert! And the granny also has sweet glittery sandals.

Niji no jamu

Today, I found a jam called Rainbow Raspberry Jam, how cute! It made me happy like seeing a rainbow in the sky and tasting it was even more dreamy.

 

Red raspberry, yellow raspberry and purple raspberry!

my navy turtle neck jumper

May 10th, 2012 — 9:43pm

One, two, three… eight, nine. I found nine holes in my navy turtle neck jumper! I’d noticed that there were some holes that I was going to mend, but nine holes! My sweater must taste so good to the wool bugs. It was just a very basic piece of clothing that I had never taken good care of but now, as I repair each hole, I’m feeling closer to my navy turtle neck jumper.

 

I've just found three holes on another sweater today... it's a horror.

Sweet yam scent

May 4th, 2012 — 8:22pm

Last month I noticed that quince started to appear on the shelves at some local markets and shops. I’d never tasted quince before but I’d still been wanting to make the quince toffee. I decided to buy my first three quinces to give it a try. I guess I didn’t add enough sugar to the recipe as my (meant-to-be) quince toffee turned out more like quince jam, but it was still incredibly yummy and somehow tasted nostalgic. The quince also had an indescribably sweet scent that I could smell from my shopping basket every time the tram shook during my trip home. It made my journey really happy.

 

Today I went back for more, this time also wanting to try a Buddha’s hand, (a type of citrus fruit that also has very gentle, sweet, flower like scent). I’m thinking of making my dream cordial with star anice.

 

A nearby florist had some giant Buddha's hands in their window display.
