Shadow Shot Sunday # 5

Well, there I was dragging myself gingerly around the house this morning after a pretty full-on day participating in the BrisStyle Christmas Market yesterday, when I discovered these reflections on the dining room floor. I don't think I was actually crawling across the floor, but I may have been. The sun (already very hot and humid) was coming in through the front window and danced its way across the dining table. It also left some interesting shapes on the edge of the table.






But I really loved the rainbow effect it left on the carpet. Pity there was no pot of gold!







And now I'd really love to limp back to bed, but we have an appointment in the city in about an hour or two, so that's not going to happen.

The market was a brilliant success and I will write more on it tomorrow, by which time I should feel as though I belong to the human race.

In the meantime, why don't you pop over to Hey Harriet and take a look at some really creative shadow shots.

Your rainbows are very beautiful.

I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that it's hot and humid there, when it's so cold here.

Happy Holidays!

Hello Hot Fudge!

I've just been enjoying your wonderful blog. Your children's clothes are so beautiful and I'm envious of your Brisbane etsy street team.

I'm (an Aussie)living in Kuala Lumpur and enjoy lots of the things you do, including that wonderful book 'The Book Thief'.

Beginning to sew again with the arrival of granchildren - one due any day in Brisbane. Back there in a week.

I hope I run into you again here :)
Oh yes.......you are right, Piazza Navona!

Very sweet shots! I'm sorry you found no pot of gold!

I read Janine's comment and was thinking what a truly small world it is. You were actually chatting to Janine's VERY pregnant daughter yesterday at the market :D

The market was a great day. I'm not surprised that you're feeling exhausted today!

Beautiful and perfect rainbow shots, they are always my favourite. Cant say that my koi was so lucky..well, it committed suide after being transferred back to its own pond..yep, jumped out of the pond, guess the SSS session was too traumatic for it.
