Flower Power

The sun is finally shining down here in Tassie! This morning I was able to go into the garden and take some photos of the flowers that are starting to come out in time for Spring! Hooray!
I’m totally awesome for getting this shot.. yeah that’s right, I’m tooting my own horn, but I’m proud of this one! It’s pretty! And… you know it too! Right?
Ok time to party everyone! Link up your best post of the week and get some more traffic! Yay!

Vegan Tasmania + Kirsty & Friends Linky Party

While we’re going through links today, I’d like to share with you one of my own. I have very recently created a new website, www.VeganTasmania.com specifically catered to vegans living in Tasmania, but anyone can get something out of the site.
I’m still working hard on the site, and am currently writing up a list of vegan and un-vegan-friendly alcohols and brands for reference. So far there are the usual; about me page, blog, events, forum, list of animal-derived ingredients, restaurant guide etc. etc.
I know most of you here are not vegan but a regular part of the blog will be my own recipes. At the moment I have an unbelievably delicious Chocolate Cheesecake recipe up that you must go and check out here.
And (hopefully, if all goes well) by the end of the day there should be a new chocolate brownie recipe up too!
Hope you’ll check it out!
Ok on to the party! Hope you’ll join in this week by adding the link of your best or most recent post of the week! Whatever you like! Just make sure to be a good blogger and link back to me either with a worded link or by adding my button! which you can copy here:

Harry Potter Birthday + Kirsty & Friends Linky Party

A couple of weeks ago my little sister had her tenth birthday party! She invited her best friends and we played lots of party games together.
This is a picture of Chicken with the “pin the tail on the donkey” game that my Mummy dear and I came up with. As you (hopefully) can tell, it’s a drawing I did of Harry, Hermione and Ron. In the background I have made the outline of Hedwig.  For the game the party-goers had to make their own Hedwig out of a Stampin’ Up! Owl punch. We put magnets on the back and hung the picture on the fridge. Then the game was just like the usual stick the Hedwig on the Harry Potter picture.
You can head over to my Mummy’s blog Stamping Still for more info on this and how we made the owls!
Ok on to the party. Please link up your best post of the week and please remember to link back!

Features: Tahirih’s Almost Daily Painting Blog

Today I wanted to share a recently discovered blog with you. Thankfully Tahirih linked up with my linky party a couple of weeks ago and I have been following along ever since. Let me tell you, she does not post nearly enough!
I really wish I could paint this well… I find these photos, particularly the bear to be completely amazing and inspiring!
Clicking on any of these images will take you to their print listing on Tahirih’s Etsy Shop. You can also visit her blog here.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Ok now it’s time to party! Link up a post you’d like to share with my readers here:

Awards + Kirsty & Friends Linky Party

This week I was lucky enough to be given two very sweet blogger awards. While I have received the Versatile Blogger award in the past (naughty me, I didn’t put it on the sidebar so no one was to know! Oops) Essential Momma Baby still deserves a shout out for awarding it to me! Thank you! Also if you’re a Mummy blogger you should head over there because she’s linking you all up!

This Sunshine Award came from the beautiful Beachcomber who I have mentioned before, here. Now I’m supposed to answer a set of questions but I’m a party pooper and I’m not going to because they’re a little too girly for me! (yeah they must be pretty girly right?)
Now I’m passing on this lovely Sunshine Award to a blogger that has inspired me:
Tahirih of My Almost Daily Painting Blog Definitely doing a feature post about this girl in the coming days/weeks. I HAVE to share with you her gorgeous paintings. I’m completely amazed!
Ok, now it’s party time! I hope you’ll link up your post and make sure to link back to me and grab my button! You could be featured!
