Available to buy on…

I took this today at my favourite spot right in front of the surf, there is a makeshift rock wall, where someone has built a shelter, and I can place little props there to get the ocean in the background, that white, is a wave breaking in the distance to the right. These are big round chocolates with hundreds and thousands sprinkled on them from the local chocolate shop, so guessing they are handmade as you buy them as singles. The ones on the milk chocolate background are much prettier than the ones on the white chocolate background and milk chocolate really makes the ‘freckles’ stand out best. I hope you like it. I’m thinking this could be good for children’s birthday parties, invitations or thank you cards.

    Yumbos! Although to be honest I don’t really eat sweets much anymore – doesn’t mean I would how much I’d enjoy them in the past – even if I don’t eat them now, they can be nostalgic to think about or see – especially with the way you’ve portrayed with the wave in the distance creating that dreamy quality – very lovely set-up! If I were to attempt this shot, I’d probably cheat and use my computer screen :P

  • Yumbos!! lol..that’s a new word for me Mui-Ling! :) ….why don’t you eat sweet things any more? ….ah thats a clever idea, using the computer screen, your Spirit of the Wind is one of your best I think Mui-Ling, I didn’t realise I hadn’t faved it, although I had definitely seen it (so just faved then) :) …thank you so much for the lovely response! xx

    “Yumbos” was something I read in a book long ago – needless to say it was said by a kid :-) – Hehehe – we learn from them to be creative and enjoy life again, as well new words :P

    As for why I don’t eat sweets now, I’m just more health conscious – and it helps make up for my lack of time for exercise. I have noticed great change after I changed my eating ways, like the fact the dress I wore 8 years ago got bigger. (By the way I meant to say “doesn’t mean I would not remember how much I’d enjoy them in the past”)

    As for my Spirit of the Wind you may not have seen it before. I’m guessing you were thinking about my Wish which is very similar.

  • Exactly, we can learn so much from children can’t we……oooh, that’s good about the health consciousness…I have to give up chocolate again (until weekends) as I am just eating it too much….and I want to start exercising again soon as I’ve not been able to with being sick for so long, I am also dreading getting into the routine again and procrastinating it a .and..oh well yes, it may be that I saw Wish and not Spirit of the Wind. You are such a slight person, I can’t imagine you shrinking any more!! xx
