We like to go out on rainy days. I love the rain so much.
James found himself a baloon. At least he didn’t name this one, the last one was named Bobert >_<
He then got in a fight with it and murdered the balloon.
This was on Melbourne Cup day. For international readers, that’s the biggest horse race in Australia and everyone here takes the day off. I didn’t get to go to Flemington but this was the closest I got XD
I’ve been shopping around for some christmas decorations but I think I’m going to make it all myself this year.
It was really warm that day even though it was pouring rain so we stopped for icecreams.
James sprayed himself in the face at a water fountain and no one was in the least bit surprised.
Now some pretty architecture from a bridge we walk Lottie under.
Melbourne is such a pretty city.
There are some really beautiful flowers along our walk too.
Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful year and show you how I made our Christmas cards this year! I guess it’s really more of a thank you than a tutorial because it goes so fast but you can pretty much get the idea!
To make your own here are the steps!
To make the cards:
Fold a piece of paper in half and cut it so that there is even space around the photo. You can trace around the photo so you know where it goes.
Draw an X between the corners.
Cut out the middle section leaving enough of it to be able to fold back and create a frame.
Fold the flaps back to create a frame and glue down.
Automatically translated by machine. Hello everyone! Just a quick video today to let you guys know about all of the cool things which are happening in December! And keep you up to date with everything. You guys might know that on my second channel, every couple of months we do a whole months of vlogs. We’re doing that in December again. We did it in December last year and it was really fun and we figured why not! Make sure you head over to my second channel which is… somewhere. It’s VioletsVlogs and subscribe if you want to keep up to date with us in December. And we’ll be doing lots of cool and random things including live morning make up, I think we’re doing the Boyfriend Does My Make Up tag today which is going to be interesting. We’ll see how that goes! There’s heaps of footage as well, my little puppy. She’s always running around and getting in between me and the camera. Also I know a couple of people have been asking about the Bergamot Bunny stuff. There’s actually a whole new range of Bergamot merchandise available for Christmas/the holidays/whatever. So many sure you check out her website and store. There are heaps of cartoons going up on her website too every couple of days a new thing pops up. And Lottie’s featuring in those too because you just can’t keep her out of things! Much to Bergamot’s irritation. That’s about it. This video was just to say thank you guys so much for supporting me all year and I can’t wait for next year, I think it’s going to be so much fun! If you have any requests, as always let me know! Thanks so much again! Bye! Violet cuts out paper with scissors and puts it together in fast motion. She decorates is and then writes a note. Dear subscribers. Happy Holidays! Love Violet. Thanks for everything this year and look forward to next year, it’s going to be big! ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello! It’s that time of year again, it’s time for a month of Vlogs!
We were off to a bit of a bumpy start with them but we’re getting along find now!
The first lot are going to be posted here today and the rest will be included in the Round Ups on Mondays from now on.
Now I have a phone with a good enough camera and I can upload directly from the phone I’m finding it much less stressful than the last two months I did so I’m considering just keeping going with them. Though I say that at the beginning of the month, we’ll see how I feel at the end XD
Oh Australia, cheap signs like these are why overseas tourists become so confused about our wildlife. Why is a koala the baby on board the kangaroo?!
Lottie is learning lots of new tricks, she’s totally a top dancer now! I think she should go on some kind of doggie dancing reality tv show.
I saw these sneakers, it was like looking back into the 90’s, Sporty Spice would be proud.
We’ve been watching Cougar Town recently and I found Big Carl in a junk store ahahaha! Now if only I actually drank wine, is it less cool to drink cranberry juice out of him?
Oh! Remember how I said I found that op shop in the city? Some of you asked for directions, well it’s inside the Block Arcade, near Koko Black.
You go down the creepy stairs towards “Dungeon of Magic” whatever that is… and it’s the Brotherhood of St Laurence boutique.
Lottie got microchipped and had some more injections. She was so sad!
Totally brave though, she didn’t even cry. The vet said that almost all of the other dogs cried, go Lottie!
She kept trying to jump into my arms from the table XD So cute!
The second it was done she ran back into the travel case. She looks so cute staring out. She wasn’t a big fan of the other dogs there because they were all very loud and distressed.
The trees have been so beautiful lately around here.
Lottie discovered her love for tea and her annoyance that she can’t have any.
She also learned to nap standing up.
I saw some cute mannequins at Spotlight and decided I want to make one to display things at home.
Some pretty architecture.
We went fabric shopping in Brunswick, everything is *so* cheap there. I’m never buying fabric from Spotlight/Lincraft again. I’m really looking forward to making some more clothes. Cute work out clothes here I come!
James enjoyed shopping for our Halloween decorations, these photos are from a while ago XD
Worst halloween costume EVER. Seriously. It’s a bra with bleeding eyes. CANNOT UNSEE.
We spotted some yarn bombing on park benches. It said “Tell me a phurphy”. No clue what it’s in reference to but yay yarn bombing!
Some cute tea pots, I love that it comes with a basket for sugar cubes! I just love sugar cubes. And carrots. And having my nose stroked. What?
A cute florist I saw while we were shopping.
And more pretty architecture. Well a lot of it’s run down but it looks like it used to be very pretty.
Lottie decided to see if she could join the Kiss tour.
And to end let’s go with some more cute puppy photos… because I keep taking them >_<
I’ve totally turned into one of those people who talks about nothing other than their dog… but she’s SO cute! And I’ve been stuck inside with her all the time until she gets used to being alone for more than a few hours or can come out too so I really haven’t done anything that interesting!
