New Accessory

When it came to decorating the boys rooms, I was adamant they would be different.  I didn’t want Aiden’s room to be a mirror image of his brothers, or full of hand me downs. We decided (really I decided) to steer away from all white furniture as we had in Liam’s room, and went for a timber look, with bright wall decals and pictures.  The room still felt ‘not finished’ and I’ve been on the look out for awhile trying to find some unique accessories.

Whilst in Bendigo recently, I came across a gorgeous kids store called Milt & Joe.  My sister had told me about it and when I walked in I was in LOVE! It was so hard not to go crazy, I was very good and restrained myself to buying just a few things, one of which was a ‘little lamb garland’ by Down to the Woods.  I finally got around to hanging it today, and I’m really happy with how it looks.

Why I needed another camera….

After our Father’s Day lunch last weekend, we just happened to go into JB Hi Fi for a browse and then just happened to check out the instant camera I had been looking at for awhile.  Whilst the boys were distracted looking at the TVs, I made the executive decision that we did NEED a Fujifilm Instant Mini 8 camera and made the purchase…. and I LOVE it!

My new toy!

I am now the owner of an older model canon, a Nikon DSLR, a video camera, as well as the good old Iphone 5.   The way I look at it is that I have a camera for every occassion.

Yes the film for the instant cameras is a bit pricey – $30 for 20 shots.  However I’m not going to use it for everyday snapping.  I’m hanging out to use it when my new niece/nephew arrives in a few weeks time, in the meantime I just had to take a few shots to work it out and I’m very happy with how they have turned out.

What have you bought that you just had to have but probably didn’t really need?

Love these shots!
