Sometimes You Don't Know What You're Missing





I miss the blogging community, I wouldn't have said that I was addicted but I now fully appreciate how much just reading everyone's posts, leaving comments and writing/typing down my thoughts makes me feel as though I'm not alone. Or crazy. So thank you!

Just a short post because as always, I have no time for anything.

If I did have time, I'd watch the whole of Project Runway Season 5 on Youtube. One of my boyfriends band mates loves it and he said that Leanne reminds him of me. Possibly the biggest compliment of the summer.

I'd also be trying to thrift or hunt on etsy for some cute vintage bird pictures. It's funny because only five seconds ago, I was complaining about the rainbow lorikeets that populate our area and how noisy they are.
And finally, if I had more time, I'd get into a full on discussion about how the colour combinations in vintage film noir posters are awesome.
One of the reasons I'm so busy at the moment is because as well as finalising moving out, I'm attempting to organise my upcoming 21st. Which is a huge job. I made it difficult for myself when I threw out the idea of having a scavenger hunt ala Viva La Bam.

Any help on what you think would be some good tasks for a scavenger hunt would be appreciated. I think because you are all imaginative with outfits, you'll be able to come up with some great stuff.

I'm in awe of those vintage bird pictures you found, how pretty!

Also wanted to thank you for including me in your last post! I'm extremely flattered to be alongside two such incredible bloggers, as well as be mentioned on your incredible blog :)

Good luck for organising your 21st! I'm sure whatever you come up with will be brilliant.

I love those old movies posters. I know what you mean about the colours. I also love those old hand-tinted photos where skin is pink and hair is yellow blond.

I've been collecting vintage bird prints to hang in my closet and these are so lovely.

And I miss your blog posts! :)

I have a book with these amazing old bird illustrations, I really should scan them in... the ones you have here are lovely.

I probably love old movie posters and pulp fiction covers more than any other kind of art, and I love the example you've posted here!

I feel the same way about the blogging community and seriously, isn't it frustrating when you have a head full of post ideas and no time to actually post them. I'm experiencing that too.

I love bird paraphernalia, those cards are gorgeous!

Oh, this list would be a nice way to pass the time. I hope you get more free time soon and moving out goes smoothly!
