White





Camillas from my mother's garden. Missy spent the afternoon with her aunt and they made white (not vanilla!) cupcakes. Cranky cat. This pile hasn't got any smaller. A very old toy. This was unearthed today. It was mine, which would make it very, ahem, vintage. I have such distinct memories of playing with this. The coloured records are stored in the back and I remember lying on the ground playing the tunes over and over.

I have really enjoyed the challenge of posting everyday for Lisa's Colour Week. I have also discovered a bunch of new blogs stretching across the globe. The images captured this week have been stunning. It was a fascinating way to peek into a person's life.

  4. I also loved peeking into the photographic lives of the masses. And yes, I am of the age that remembers playing with that record player too.
