What an interesting theme this was....black and white photographs can be so dramatic and effective. It was fun experimenting with what subjects would best capture the topic, however, I found myself fighting the urge to splash some colour into them. Funny because, once I was on a roll with the black and white photos, I had to force myself to stop. lol
Those of you who have been following my blog for some time now will know that I love Tibetan/Indian style Buddhas and that I have a few of them around my home. This particular Buddha resides in my lounge-room.

Below is a part of my potted large-leafed jade (Crassula_ovata) plant commonly referred to as a money plant. According to Feng Shui, it attracts good luck and fortune to have money plants in and around your home, particularly at the front entrance.

i guess you could say my kitchen accents are based on a Mexican/chilli theme and, some years ago, i just couldn't resist buying this ceramic bull (below) when i spotted him in a cheap dollar store. i think he fits in quite nicely with my kitchen theme, especially with a bottle of tequila parked beside him.....which may also explain the glazed over look in his eyes. no....wait a minute....it was Beau who had the glazed over look in his eyes after downing the tequila at his sister's 21st birthday party some years back. this particular bottle does not bring back pleasant memories for him and i still remember picking him up from said party and the need for a bucket and a few pit stops on the way home. i also vaguely recall him muttering the words, "i'm never drinking tequila again, mum". Yeah, right.....LOL
i thought it would be fitting to throw in something that IS actually black and white
