A ghost in the machine.

I have a ghost in the machine!

No, it is not the Magpie Cat looking for a new nest, it is the software for my new camera! I'm so gutted! I had so many lovely piccies to share, and it worked the first time, but alas, never again. I re-installed it three times, and Richard gave it the benefit of all his problem solving and troubleshooting deliberations, but to no avail. So, it's back to the shop I go on Monday. But here are a few that I managed to get in before the wheels fell off!

The crysanths are from my Mum and she calls them "Matt's flowers", because they were grown from a cutting taken from a pot of crysanths that someone gave us after we lost him in a helicopter crash this time last year. It's not the least bit morbid, it makes us happy to see something lovely come from such a manky and neglected plant, and they always remind Mum of my brother Matt now, as they come out at this time of year. He loved an Easter Egg hunt did Matt, and it's those things that we love to remember about him.

I love this vignette, and keep being drawn back to it.

Never really did quite work out what to do with my plastic geraniums, but I feel they are an item that every girl should have in her magpie chic stash!!!

This is just the perfect image for serenity in the Magpie Chic world!
Thanks for calling in :P
