delightful / lovely

“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its lovliness.”

She looked so cute in her little purple knit hat and her new camera strap that matched I just had to take some photos.
Today we went to the I.C.E. (Indie Craft Experience) festival at Centennial Park. We saw so many things we would have liked to buy and the first thing we saw was camera straps made out of recycled seat belts and vintage fabrics. Taylor fell in love with one that had owls on it. We usually browse the entire show and then go back to what we want the most – we bought the camera straps (you can click on the photo to see how cute it is).
How nice to finally have a blue sky day. After the festival we went by a little location we like for photo shoots – one we had used for a photo shoot a CD cover for a good friend. There was a new colorful graffiti wall, a little plot of daisies, a bright white cement wall, a brick wall with numbers - so many textures and colors. I took a lot of photos but she asked me not to post without her permission - she wasn't pleased with the way she looked in them. oh well I liked them.
Oh and we went to an exciting new place for lunch/dinner called Flip. It was very european in style and the menu was so different than anything we had seen before. First we saw the dessert - Nutella and Burnt Marshmallow milkshake. wow we had to save room for that, so we did what we often do – split everything. We got a Flip burger, vodka battered onion rings and beets and goat cheese salad. We're definitely going back there and next time trying the sweet potato tots with blue cheese foam and red wine syrup and a smoke salmon sandwich with herb cream cheese, arugula, red onions, cucumber and everything spice. Am I making you hungry?
