Snapshot Sunday: Barbie’s Birthday

People who know me or read our doll blog will know that for the past week we’ve been celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Barbie. This iconic doll has been around for most of my life and all of Naomi’s although we didn’t meet her until she was already five or six years old.

Most of this weekend I’ve been busy dressing dolls and setting up displays to photograph which has been lots of fun even though it’s been very time-consuming Here’s one of the pictures I took.

Snapshot Sunday: Airstream Caravan

A catering van on the Hobart Waterfront.

I spotted this caravan being used as a wine bar at the race village on the Hobart waterfront last week. It is made by the US company Airstream and while it looks very retro they are still being made today although this is the first one I have seen.

Snapshot Sunday: Where No Man Has Gone Before

Two of Naomi’s Star Trek Action Figures

Well, this weekend the weather has been too wet and miserable for outdoor photography so instead, I’d like to share a photo of two of Naomi’s Star Trek action figures.

Naomi recently started adding to her small collection of action figures. She brought her Enterprise Bridge up to my house recently so I could see it. I took this photograph that day.

If you would like to see more of these and other action figures check out Naomi’s posts on our doll blog. You can find a link below.

Snapshot Sunday: Poultry in Motion

A chicken being judged at the Huon Show.

This was taken in the poultry hall at the Huon Show. I assume that this man is a judge and is examining the bird but when I saw him holding it I just had seconds to take the picture so I didn’t inquire.

There will be more pictures from the Huon Show in another post very soon.

Snapshot Sunday: Cindy

Cindy in the back room.

I was busy taking photos for Cee’s challenges and wanted to include one of Cindy’s water bowl. She decided that she would come and sit on her bed while I was doing it so I took a picture. I decided it wasn’t suitable for the challenge but it was too nice to waste.

Snapshot Sunday: Apple Blossom Time

The apple blossom never seems to last long, October is often windy and sometimes it’s gone almost as soon as it has arrived.

In May I planted some bluebells under the tree, I honestly didn’t know then if I would be here to see them flower as the house was on the market already but I thought that they would look nice and be a parting gift to the house.

They flowered this week in time to coincide with the arrival of the apple blossom and it does look nice.  If I am still here in the autumn I’ll try to plant a few more. A mass of them would look beautiful next spring.
