I picked up some Ranunculus' today very pretty flowers, not much perfume but you know that's alright. They have an interesting shape, so many petals! Hopefully I'll be able to sketch a few before they wilt.

Also got some more lovely tea from T2, the absolutely delicious Red Fancy Fruit and Gorgeous Geisha a green tea which smells fantastic I'll have to try it tomorrow. Green tea is a bit tricky to brew. Apparently for my star sign I should be drinking Chai, Darjeeling 1st Flush and Lilac Green. Or according to the little quiz on their site Girlie Grey and French Earl Grey, interesting.

I love tea and after my usual Saturday morning activities I walked past a tea shop. I went in to get a glass teapot but the only ones available were in the window and as the shop is usually busy I had to wait for a shop assistant to get one for me.
As I was waiting to get served I saw this teapot. As much as I wanted the glass one, the one with the monkeys won out. Did I mention that I really like monkeys? How could I go past that one, impossible. It's a little hard to photograph being silver ink and all, the cups are a bit hard to use if you like your tea piping hot, but, oh well. MONKEYS!
Guess I'll get the glass one for Chrysanthemum teas at a later date :) actually I might get some of those tomorrow...

I did start one of these the other day, but it was on a completely different tack. And as the things I was whingeing about are no longer relevant, that blog seems a bit of a waste.

So I've been spending a lot of time and money on music lately. All my favourite bands are touring this year and it's really hard to stop myself from going to their shows. But that's not really what I was going to say either.

Actually, I just wanted to post some of my patterns. Like a lot of people around I love coming up with my own patterns. These are a few I've been working on, now if work can keep quiet, things here might take off :)

False Starts

Alright so I'm a fibber, I didn't end up getting a scanner last weekend. I felt ill so I stayed home and watched DVDs in bed. This week I've been busy going to several concerts (getting cabs to and from venues, buying merch) CDs and new shoes for work. Which are already tearing up my heels, thank the universe for band-aids.
Anyway I did manage to get out and have look around for one, but the couple I could find were crap and a $100 more than they are online.
So now that I've spent all the extra cash I had I guess it's gonna have to wait a couple of more weeks. Probably end up ordering one online anyway, so til then back to the pen & paper for me.
