Miranda, Miranda

My friend has just had a baby and called it Miranda.
It is a name which provokes in me images of strong, magical women.
Miranda in 'The Tempest' by Waterhouse-
my absolute favourite artist.

Miranda in Picnic at hanging rock. Such a mesmerising movie by Peter Weir based on the book by Joan Lindsay.

Welcome to this beautiful world baby Miranda. May you find much joy and love within.


  1. Congratulations to your friend!! It's a roller coaster ride--this thing called parenthood! So much fun!

  4. Good Day Amber,

    And all the best to you & all the Miranda's in the world. I saw that you were "Follow" ing my site and thought I'd say hello. I'm completely jealous that you're living in Sweden and able to travel around Europe so easily. Years ago I lived in Copenhagen and had a great time. I am missing that part of the world and travel in general. Anyway, keep up the good work and drop by and see me when you can.



  5. Congratulations to your friend. Miranda is a beautiful name.
