Hey everyone, I haven’t posted in a few days but hope you are all doing well. Yesterday morning was quite eventful for me after one of my birds got out.

My Indian ringneck who I adopted two years ago got out. Took me two hours to get her pack, but she didn’t stop calling out to me one letting me know where she was.

I got her back and she just wanted my company.

It makes your heart beat when an animal is let loose. She’s been to the vet for check ups and wing trim because I just can’t bare to go through this again.

Hey everyone welcome back to my blog! Due to currents restrictions and rules in Australia I have not been able to travel with my fellow bloggers and friends to capture the world around us. I have decided to use my isolation time to capture images from Home.

Above images are of some of the times of butterflies we have had visit us over the past couple of days.

Laurie

Why have I never written about my birds? My true loves and soul mates. They are truly understanding creatures with big hearts and a big personalities. Meet Laurie, mummy’s boy, have had him since he was two months old. I swear he suffers separation anxiety and a mood disorder. One minute he loves you and the next he wants to eat you.

Laurie is now seven years of age. He knows how to speak really well and he can do shakes also. He is quite the chatterbox.

Laurie has travelled to Mount isa with me he loves going new places and meeting new people.

Even nature sends hope

Do you believe in your third eye? Opening to the spirit world, allowing loved ones to communicate with you. Sometimes they send messages through dreams, smells, sound and even butterflies. I have been seeing Grandma herself as a spirit, where as I believe she has been sending messages to all of us.

After grandmas first husband passed away, my grandma met my grandfather, they became beat friends and lovers. Pa and grandma did some garden renovations to the house, they planted bottle brush trees at the front. I can’t say how many years ago this was. This week the bottle brush with white flowers has been covered in butterflies and bees, it’s amazing and can tell this brings so much joy to his heart ♥

I like to say they are a message from the spirit world as Pa says he hasn’t seen the tree like this in 40years

Visiting the Governor

I have found going to cemeteries comforting and peaceful, sitting with the dead and admiring their tomb stone’s. It’s amazing to see the different types and to see the work and effort people have to put in to caring for loved ones. In the Toowong Cemetery Brisbane, Australia lays the second Governor of Queensland, Governor Blackall. I went to see him for the second time today and when I got home there was a message in the clouds in the image I took. A cross.

A place someone calls Home

Urban Exploring for me has become a lot more then looking at abandoned buildings, trains and Homes. The more I explore , the more I learn not all places are abandoned and that some places are still home.  Home is a story, every house and everyone has one.

In 2011 Ipswich QLD faced flooding, and since then the local bowling Alley has been shut down. A week before I attend the bowling Alley to have a look another Urban explorer attended the site stating a door was open. The week I attended the site no door was open and rumours the site being refurnished again had come about.

I can not wait to see what the owners have in stall for this Building.

Skate Rink

Every building has a story, just like every art work and its unfortunate this year the building is getting demolished. I fell in love instantly, street art is amazing, being an abandoned building hunter is eye opening.

Opened in the 1959, closed in 2007 this building became abandoned and cover in local street art.

In mid 2018 the government agreed keeping the structure of the building and turning it in a multipurpose precinct.

Hello We Are Fashion Fans ,

We would like to announce we are back in action  after a huge pause in the industry. Yesterday the first of June 2019 we had the opportunity to meet Amie and her  Bargain wardrobe. Each week Amie spends up to $25 at op shops and hunts out super Bargains. I don’t know how she does it but I am super jealous.

As Amie works in an office she usually shops for smart casual work wear, she also find herself wearing these clothes for parties, outings with her friends and meetings. Unfortunately her clothes are not for sale as she hopes to build a great collection for her hobby of collecting Bargain clothes.

The first image below was taken in a park at Toowoomba, the dress Amie quoted, ” it is around $250 – $300, got it for $25.”

“The pink Jacket was $30 for Amie,  due to a pen mark on the jacket Amie scored the pink jacket down from $130, at Portmans fashion store, the ring was $2”

” Little white top was $6 by Forever New. The grey skirt is usually around $200 but got it for $6 as well. “
