October 30, 2008



Sorry it has been a bit of a slow week here on the 'Alphabet'...my computer is pretty sick, and I've managed to loose quite a bit of info and different programs, so it has been a bit of a task trying to get it sorted...anyway, I am now working on Steve's computer, trying to put a very late post together..

So, despite all that carry-on I have decided to dedicate this post to my Grandmothers -

Today I bought a packet of Cameo Creme biscuits (for those who don't know them, they are two choccy biscuits, sandwiched together with a creamy filling) - anyway, I bought them purely because they remind me of my grandmother, the taste, the smell, it takes me right back to her kitchen table. Steve and I just ate the whole packet. Yeh, probably not the healthiest snack, but it was all for the sake of nostalgia!!

And... these images I have chosen for S. Are for my other Grandmother, who loved gardening, always had beautiful blooms in her garden and home and often comes to mind when I surprise myself and can name a plant or tree or flower... all because of her..

Anyway.. enjoy!

Sugar Snaps

I cant remember where I found Sugar Snaps.. but the work of Hilary Upton is included in my new photographic love affair. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Hilary is from NZ!

“With a love of nature I am drawn to photography to capture something special and highlight the magic in nature that is there but often missed - a Sugar Snap!”

Lovely, lovely prints and super cutie softies can be found in Hilary's store.. I have picked a collection of beautiful floral prints to show you.. have a look:
