Champagne for Everyone!

The Vibes 3rd birthday by Mark Wallis at

Dear readers, you’ll be relieved to hear I prepared an acceptance speech and left it on the London Underground. Three years of WordPressing – a lot of fun and a great deal of hard work. Pretty pictures don’t make themselves, but if they did, they might be a bit less over-saturated. I hope this little blog brightens your day in some small way. Cheers and thanks for following.

Two Years Old Today!

The Vibes is One Year Old animated gif

Ok, it says ‘1 year old’, but this is last year’s birthday card, and I can’t be bothered changing it to a ‘2’.


It’s a lot of work (some people think it’s a real neon sign according to Pinterest!) I’ve had the best time blogging on WordPress, meeting new people and making connections with like-minded people around the planet. I’ve had an instant and appreciative audience for my photography, videos and artwork and even some music that I’ve made. We’ve been visited by the famous, and featured in French newspapers and Freshly Pressed.


99,000 hits, 876 followers and 8 awards… blow that trumpet.

Here’s to many more years of The Vibes!

Vintage Vibes

The charging warrior within me can happily adapt to a day of gingham and cupcakes. So when the sun shines on a Sunday, I escape from being a home-building domestic god and explore the neighbourhood flea markets and antique stalls.

(This is my first proper post using the new WordPress Mosaic tile gallery function and it works like a dream… even on my iPad! Suddenly I’m a style magazine.)

Moving the Mountain

Buddha by Mark Wallis on The VibesI’m living amongst a mountain of boxes, having moved from the buzzing metropolis to leafy suburbia. While I wait for my life to magically unpack itself, I’m having to manage without an internet connection. I’m wired to the world, but only by iPad which would explain why The Vibes has gone a little quiet. Thanks for all the messages regarding my recent appearance on the WordPress Blog, and I’m working my way through all your design requests this weekend. Thanks for being patient! Buddha finally seems to be smiling.
