days twenty-four to end of July

a very big {thank you!} to all of you who voted on the 
poll and especially to those of you who left a comment on the last 
post! it's been so good to read and see where you would like this 
blog to go and i'm glad you're still enjoying it! :) as this post ends 
{july} i have decided, based on the poll results and also my 
preference ;) to continue to follow the fatmumslim challenge 
for {august} and also to add some more bonus photos as i go. 
so to thank you for helping me out, i've already started, with a 
bonus collage of photos at the end of this post. :)

have a happy august! :)

day 24: a stranger
this was one challenge where i did not feel comfortable taking the photo! :)
how awkward does it make you feel trying to take a photo of a complete stranger?!
i finally spied these very obliging strangers who were admiring a window display
in our local jewellery store, who afforded me with a :stranger: photo :)

day 25: heart

day 26: sunshine

day 27: on the road
this iphone photo was taken :on the road: as my parents, two sisters 
and i traveled to our cousin's wedding. though not the greatest quality,
i included this photo because it makes me smile, and really sums up 
beth's cheery, beautiful personality! :) 

day 28: cup
this photo was not taken on this date, but a few days later.
little sister is holding a warm cup of soup during a day of
great fun tobogganing at the snow with friends :)

day 29: last thing i bought
a pretty vintage milk jug {a bargain op-shop find!} 
and some new earrings :)

day 30: calm
snowfields are so :calming: and beautiful! 

day 31: toothbrush
i nearly skipped this topic out of sheer disgust - who 
wants to see a photo of a :toothbrush:?! but my family told 
me i had to complete the challenge so here it is :)

a few photos from the lovely afternoon celebration of my cousin's
wedding - it was such a pretty location with a reception filled 
with beautiful flowers, elegant table settings, a fun lolly bar, 
catch-ups with relatives & of course, the bride & groom! 


  1. Once again, great photos! Looking at yours does make me keen to do another month sometime...Maybe September? Every photo you took is great! Love the new earrings, plus the way you captured the toothbrush shot makes it look anything but disgusting, but my favourites of all of course are the snow shots...Aah, the memories :)
    SO glad you have followed the advice of the poll and are still going! :)

    1. You :should: so do September! It would be great to have you taking the challenge again! :) xx

  2. Love the photos Abbie! Im so glad you are going to continue with the challenge plus bonus photos - that's what I voted for!! :) Hope to catch up soon.....
