My Little Secret...shhh

I have a sneaky little confession to make...I have a new is consuming large amounts of my time, and I think I need an intervention! I have discovered pinterest and it is awesome! You know how much I love my magazines, and collecting inspiring photos...well this is all that and more...but, be warned, if you have not yet discovered it, it is highly addictive! Go check out my inspiration if you like.

In the meantime, I have borrowed some images from there to take us on a little adventure, because I am sick of Melbourne's cold, wet weather...we can but let's hitch up our gypsy wagon, to my little friend
isn't she adorable? and let's hit the road...I hope you are dressed for a gypsy adventure? Perhaps something amazing from my new favourite place Spell and the Gypsy...

...and don't forget your cowboy boots - yeehaw!Perhaps some gypsy jewells...
Let's take the path less travelled...
to discover hidden doorways...
in forests of green...then picnic by the ocean, sharing laughter and music

...and paella cooked on the campfire...
and washed down with big glasses of sangria...(oops, getting a bit tipsy...)

Then let's watch the sun set across the ocean, then dance the night away to gypsy sounds...

Feeling sleepy? Rest your head a while inside the little gypsy's cosy and warm
In the morning let's celebrate the new dawn with some yoga on the sand...

Before we head home, how about a tattoo to remember the wonderful time we all had? Go on, I dare you!

I hope you all had fun...I know I did...and remember, if you decide to go and check out pinterest, don't say I didn't warn you...

(All the photos here are taken from the Pinterest site, which lists their origins)

  6. I adore all the gypsy loveliness! I think I need a gypsy wagon as soon as possible.

  9. "Hello... my name is Tricia and I am a pinterest addict too!"
    You found my source, my stash, my hook up! Isn't it wonderful!!! I could (and do ) spend hours there! Love your pics, you are a gypsy at heart just like me! Hurrah!
    In the throws of sweet addiction,

  10. I just signed up for it a few days ago. Looking forward to having a proper play on there when I get home from work tonight. :-)

  11. Oh Tina ... this was quite the magical post, one I soooooooooooooooooooooo needed! I love that saying on the wagon above, couldn't have written one better myself! :O

    Every image you chose was perfect ... I especially loved the pony and that magical spot in the base of the old tree. Now that truly looked like hobbit territory. One wonderful thing about having a gypsy soul is that so many places look warm and inviting .... how easy it would be to travel from one nest to the next!

  12. Oh Lord I know... I discovered Pinterest very recently and didn't come down to Earth for HOURS... it is very addictive. *Winks* I'm loving that Hippie Van ceiling... and the Beach scene... and 'Spell & The Gypsy Collective' is a fav of mine as well.

    Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
