Blogtoberfest - Day 2

Welcome everyone to Day 2 of Maddabling's contribution to Blogtoberfest. I had high hopes of weeding the garden today but the rain has put a temporary stop to that !

I want to share with you something that I recently created. I am a keen amateuer photographer and recently made some postcards from photo's I had taken. I chose MOO to produce my postcards but there are many many places online that provide this service. I think they turned out beautifully, don't you ?

Now, something special for those foodies amongst my readers - a few weeks ago, I sampled the most delicious Melting Moments from Gravinas Sisters Kitchen. Kerri loving makes biscuits, cakes and quirky homewares in the Dandenong Ranges (Victoria) region of Australia. I think these would make a perfect gift - either for yourself or for someone special, I can personally vouch for how amazing they taste !

Lastly dear readers, some music. This is another band I am really enjoying listening to at the moment - Noah and the Whale. They are an English indie folk band from Twickenham, London, England and they formed in 2006. The band consists of Charlie Fink (vocals, guitar, ukulele), Tom Hobden (fiddle/keys), Matt "Urby Whale" Owens (bass guitar), Fred Abbott (guitar/keys), and Michael Petulla (drums). You can read more about them here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noah_and_the_Whale.

Life is Life is a song from their album Last Night on Earth. Their style at times reminds me a little of Tom Petty - I really hope you enjoy listening to this song too :) See you all tomorrow for Blogtoberfest - Day 3.
