Grey textures


Souce
It's January in Australia, and I should be lying in front of the airconditioning hoping for a cool change.
Sadly it's cold.
The kids are huddled under rugs and I hate to admit it, but, I have just turned the heater on. (just for 5 mins to take the chill off, I promise).

So my thoughts turned to these lovely images I have been collecting.


Lovely lovely grey textures.
See that velvet above. I want to pat it and dig my fingernails into it a little. Is that wrong?

And, oh, the texture of that grey rug.
Can you hear my heart?
Boom, boom.
Which one is your favourite?

  3. I am loving that little bar...it's perfect...just the right shades of gray! While you are freezing, we are quite warm and that is very odd in Chicago this time of year! I hope it warms up for you!

    1. I felt very wicked, but I did it for a little while anyway. Yes I nearly put the air on tonight but I didn't dare.

  9. Our heater has been on for days.
    I blame the road trip and the fact that I'm not acclimatised to cold anymore.

    1. Can I blame our trip still? Maybe over a year is stretching things a bit. My WA cushion arrived from Cath this week I am very excited. I am going to stitch our trip on ah la yours. What a nice little reminder to have of the trip. Hope you are still settling in ok. I am dying for an update on the hair dresser debarcle.

  10. I know what you mean - I was in Port Fairy by the beach reading curling up by the fire would you believe. Bikinis and suntanning where the furtherest thing on my mind!
