Saturday was a busy day for me with a full day course/training so I was inside all day, however the training was beneficial and the day was productive.
Sunday was lovely, after church we went to our FOOD Affair and wandered around the 40 odd stalls of local produce and wines. Sampled lots of yummy things and relaxed in the shade, on the picnic rug, finishing my glass of wine and reading the free Country Style magazine that they were handing out! Perfect afternoon!
I also spent some time playing with WH's camera. You see, he is the photographer in our house and he is very talented where as I just point and shoot and I don't know what any of the fancy buttons and dials do!
I received a bunch of flowers from work on Thursday and promptly dismantled the bunch and arranged them in my garage sale bottles/vases. Do you leave your bunch of flowers as they come or do you take them apart and arrange them as you like? I do both. WH usually buys me a bouquet of Oriental Lilies and the florist always arranges them beautifully so I put them straight into a big vase and enjoy them as they are! Once they start to die and I have less and less of them I transfer the remaining blooms into smaller vases/containers so that I can get as much mileage out of them as possible. I really love fresh flowers.
If I get a bunch of mixed flowers I will usually take the bouquet apart and rearrange them in smaller groups.
I was inspired to practice my photography skills after reading Kat's post over at Low Tide High Style. Kat is giving away an autographed copy of Scott Kelby's book - The Digital Photography Book. I am so impressed with Kat's photos and I would love to improve my skills so here's hoping I win. If you are interested head over and check it out. The giveaway closes tonight.

In the mean time I will keep practicing and asking WH for his tips! Have a great week! xx
