James Vincent McMorrow - Sparrow & the Wolf

It's a funny time of the year I think. I don't know about you, but I haven't got a lot of uberly exciting stuff to blog about right now, life's kinda ticking along day by day, can't complain, but it's pretty quiet round here at the moment! Still, thought I'd share a new favourite song with you. Here you go!

Love in the Funniest Places

While wandering back to the office yesterday after getting some lunch, I found myself walking behind a man who had unsuspectingly sat on a piece of red thread, and it was stuck to his bum forming the shape of a heart. It looked something like this. Unfortunate for him, quite possibly. Highly amusing for myself? Most definitely.

It's Time For A Joke

What do you get when you cross a ton of scraps of silk curtaining, polyester upholstery fabric, linen, cotton duck, flocked velvet, solution dyed acrylic, macrosuede, pocket woven satin, a forever tunelling, burrowing cat and a seamstress with zero patience and little tolerance for pinning, tacking or measuring?

A majorly twisted, crooked fabric delight for said cat to play in.

Italian Tale

I just realised it's nearly been six months since we left Canada and headed off towards the lights and delights of Europe. Jeepers time flies!

One of my all time highlights was hiring a scooter in Sorrento and driving along the coast through Positano and finishing with an afternoon in the sun in Amalfi. Yeah, you know the bit in 'Under the Tuscan Sun' where Francesca goes looking for a replacement part for her chandelier and ends up in Positano with Marcello? That's what I'm talkin' about. The stuff of dreams. And I went there. Literally, with my hair blowing in the wind behind me on the back of a scooter, in the Italian sun. Ahhhh... !

Now for the cheese - my home-made vid of our scooter ride. Yes, some of you have probably seen this before, but oh it's good to reminisce isnt' it?

*Sorry just to be a real pain you need to be logged into facebook to watch this vid!
