This is where I live...

I am not a native Melbournian, I grew up north of Sydney as soon as I could get there I was there to stay. I had lived in Sydney for the best part of 15 years so when circumstances sent me south I was not too impressed as far as I was concerned Melbourne was where you went for a shopping weekend, you didn't live there. But I ended up here, I have lived here for 12 months next week and in my mind it has always been temporary but the last couple of weeks I realise I love it here. It is hard, I haven't had a chance to meet anyone to make friends with (I attend University as a mature age student and although the others in my class are really nice the age gap makes it hard to find common ground) and I miss my Sydney friends everyday but it's pretty cool here. So today I am sharing another Melbourne loving page. I took this photo when I was out and about using my iPhone and used my new favourite app Snapster to add the rainbow effect filter.

You know I love a good sketch and I came across this one at Sketchabilities which I decided to use and have ended up with a very loose interpretation :)

Firstly I only had one large picture and I really like the little pennants... 


I just didn't like a big one as a base piece for this pic although I did incorporate one but horizontal instead of vertical.
 

Thanks so stopping by,

  4. I love it! The colours are awesome and the photo rocks too. I feel for you, I lived in cairns for 2 years and it never really felt like "home". It's hard to make friends sometimes.

  5. I really like the color scheme and congrats for you for finding a home that you love, despite not thinking you could. I've been in that situation, believe me. :)
