Seeking inspiration ...

We spent the Easter weekend at home mostly - very quietly mostly too, cause the kids were with their other parents.  We dined out all the time which was nice but I can feel the indulgement on my clothes already! 

Our little village had a couple of power failures over the weekend and since yesterday we're without water!  Rather frustrating cause we all know that the real reason is pathetic municipal management!

On Saturday Leon and I went to watch Alice in Wonderland in 3D.  What a brilliant movie!  Loved the fantasy, brilliant acting (especially by Johnny Depp - yum!) and special the effects!  The 3D technology is totally mind boggling!
We bought a couple of excellent cook books recently.   This one is my favourite:
Today I have all to myself to scrap my heart out and guess what - now my mojo is on vacation!!!  Will  have to browse around on my favorite sites until I find something to kick start me! :)

An hour later ....

Here are a couple of goodies I found that inspire me.  I'm not sure why it ended up to be mostly fashion items cause I'm not really into that.  Apart from the fact that I woul totally love to own and wear all of these items, I feel so inspired by them!

I love the romantic, vintage feeling of Michal Negrin's designs!  Look at this pretty little dress / top:
I found these cute shoes here:
I adore this bag.  I found it at this amazing site - Anthroplogie.  I'm sooooo in love with their style!  Check out their cool site for much more eye candy! :)
Love this top to bits!  Found it from ModCloth:

I'm off to my scraproom now to clean up my desk and just get going with what I have on there.  Hopefully my mojo will join me sometime soon ...

So far this week ....

I'm still enjoying my leave although I don't have a lot time to relax.  My maid had a hysterectomy on Monday which means  that I'll have to do the housework myself!!!  The garden is getting along - slowly but surely.  Not quite ready to share photos at this stage. 

I haven't done any scrapping so far this week but I have a page that I finished last week to share.

Marco had a rugby week in Potchefstroom this week - at my old primary school!  Yesterday we went to watch him play.  I walked through the school.  What a trip down memory lane that was!!!!!!

Marco's team went through to the finals but lost the game (which they played in pouring rain!) in the end.  They did get a trophy for second place though.

After rugby we went to see The Book of Eli.  If was Michaels choice and I didn't really want to see it, but I don't regret that we did.  Not the best movie ever made, but the story was good.  I little bit too gruesome for my liking.

During my gardening -"research", I found a picture of this beautiful rose called "My Granny". 
I fell in love with it and went on a mission to find it.  I was sure that it would  be difficult to get hold of as it always is when I want something specific like that.  Big was my surprise when I found it at the first nursery that I asked for it!  I am now the proud owner of two of these lovely rose bushes. Can't wait to get them into pots!  I'm going to that right now!
