Teaspoon rings, Byron Bay and more Florence and the Machine…

A few things I felt the need to share…

The social belonging tries to absorb the single persons attention and replace his identity not leaving room for individualism. – quote carved in a dead tree at Byron Bay.

http://piratesdreaming.com/treasures/   – a business that collects old metal cutlery and turns it into amazing jewellery… I got myself a teaspoon ring! Yay. Now the ultra cool thing about wearing a teaspoon ring is this… if you need a coffee… no, not really. Actually the coolest thing is that the mark inside say 1881 and I just love thinking that some lovely 17th century, corset wearing, petticoat sporting, bonnet donning, dainty lady tinkled their teacup with the teaspoon that 130 years later turned into my ring. I can just imagine her sitting there with her perfect curls hanging against her neck as she watches Mr Darcy galloping across her country garden giving her the eye… ah, ever the romantic, that’s me… it was probably more like some desperate housewife spooning arsenic into her husbands tea trying to break out of the arranged marriage that her parents had forced her into at 13. Haha.

Now for some singing…

“Here I am,  a rabbit hearted girl,

frozen in the headlights,

it seems I made the final sacrifice.”

(yep, that’s Florence… there with me every step of the way…)

And finally, a quote from Lemony Snickets…

“Of course, it is quite possible to be in the dark in the dark, but there are so many secrets in the world that it is likely that you are always in the dark about one thing or another, whether you are in the dark in the dark or in the dark not in the dark, although the sun can go down so quickly that you may be in the in the dark about being in the dark, only to look around and find yourself no longer in the dark about being in the dark, but in the dark in the dark nontheless, not only because of the dark, but because of the ballerinas in the dark, who are not in the dark about the dark, but also not in the dark about the locked cabinet, and you may be in the dark about the ballerinas digging up the locked cabinet in the dark, even though you are no longer in the dark about being in the dark, and so you are in fact in the dark about being in the dark, even though you are not in the dark about being in the dark, and so you may fall into the hole that the ballerinas have dug, which is dark, in the dark, and in the park.”

How about it? Are you in the dark??
