"Boobs on Bikes" Parade 2015

Warning!!  Topless women in photo's below.  If you are offended by topless women then PLEASE look no further!
The photo's below are two of about

80 plus that I took of some of the girls in the recent "Boobs on Bikes" parade which takes place on our main street in  Auckland city. The parade takes place every year, and is not always in Auckland.  I was at the end of the run as there were less people and it gave me a better opportunity to take photo's.  Being short I get lost in the crowd!

"If The Hat Fits...Wear It!"

"Romeo-Valentino" is the perfect model to show of my witches hat! Not sure that he was all that happy about having it on his head though!

SU Howl-o-ween Owl

 My first Halloween card for 2015!  It isn't celebrated that much here in NZ but I do make a few cute Halloween cards and I decorate my front window too!  Lot's of fun!  Above is the front of the card and below is the inside.  I used Blackberry Bliss on the owl but it isn't showing the true colour here.
Thanks for visiting, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

"Feelin' Witchy..."

 I found this idea here on how to make these oh-so-cute witches hats!  (Thank you Patty!) I used black glitter card for the hat and orange card for the bow.  I get the glitter card for $2 for a pack of five sheets from the $2 Shop.  You get 5 different colours in the pack.
Here is hat and the cut outs I have used.  All from Stampin' Up! except I used a circle die from my Nestabilities.  So much fun and so easy and quick to make!  Have a great day and thanks for visiting!  {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

Fern Fronds

 I live in the Waitakere  Ranges where there are 1,000's of hectares of beautiful Native bush.  Nestled among the thousands of trees are thousands if these Ponga Ferns.  These photo's are of the fronds before they are open.  I am fascinated by them!  I think they are beautiful.
 There is a wooden walkway through the bush beside the Titirangi library and this is where I took these photo's today. 
 Every frond is tightly curled up almost into a knot!  Amazing!
 If you look closely you can see the baby fronds ready to uncurl.
 I am lucky because these ferns grow wild and are everywhere.
 It's so amazing how they are curled so tightly, and if I go back in a weeks time they will be much more open.
 How will they look when they are open?  See the green fern in the background?  That's what they will look like when fully grown!
And this is a fern frond of another kind!  This is commonly known as a "Ladder Fern" and grows very rapidly.  It will take over any space it can.  I have it in my garden.  
Okay, so that's my adventures for the last few days!  Hope you have enjoyed your visit!  {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

A Beautiful Glass Ceiling

As I was walking back through the tunnel yesterday, to get to the train I saw this beautiful glass ceiling.  It is about three stories up and I just had to take some photo's of it!  I had to stand directly underneath it and lean back looking directly up at it to take the photo's.  It's very gorjuss and I love it!
Hope you are having a great day, thanks for visiting, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

Watching The Boats

 This is a view of downtown Auckland where the ferries come and go from.  I was hoping there might be a big cruise ship there but there wasn't.  I spent dome time here yesterday just sitting in the sun watching the ferries come and go.  It was very relaxing!
 This was one of the many ferries leaving for Devonport which is across the North Shore.  About a 10 - 15 minute boat ride.
 Sitting there minding my own business I saw this guy!  He was watching me in hope of me  giving him some food!  I didn't!  I said to him, "Can you do something funny for the camera Mr. Bird?!"  
And this is what he did!  Stretched his wings for me!  I called him a show-off and he flew away to find someone with food!  Thanks for visiting {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)
