Stills: A weekly Collection





1. My new Christmas header designed by the fabulous Ella Leach who creates the most stunning collection of paper goods imaginable. Thanks Ella (we also have a surprise for you that will be revealed in the morning)
2.Banana smoothies. When there is no bread, no cereal and nothing but brown bananas, milk and yogurt in the house, we do the only logical thing.
3. Many months ago, Zeph built himself a garden bed. We gave him some sunflower seeds to scatter amongst the soil and now, we have beautiful sunflowers in bloom. We actually have several in every garden bed- Zeph doesn't do things by halves, so he scattered those seeds good.
4. Fancy Dave scatters sprinkles on their oats and fuit.
5. Afternoon light in the Young Man's room.
6. My new mirror sitting pride of place in the living room*. Since working with Alison from Bayside Vintage, i'm obsessed with her store. The Bayside Vintage Giveaway is still open, winner will be drawn tomorrow evening.




*other  goodies in the room include vintage plates on wall collected from opp shops, striped blanket from here, coloured otomi from here, other patterned pillows from here and a vintage magnolia painting  bought from the little old lady across the road.


Feel free to add your photo based post to the linky below.

also, today I re-read this post. It was SO timely as i'm feeling particularly exhausted and fed up with filth.

  15. Oh you gorgeous festive thing you! What a lovely new header for such a wonderful time of year. Your pictures are just magnificent! The light in wee Zephy's room is just so peacegul. And smoothies reign supreme here too. How is a Mumma to get weetbix into her babies when Papa puts sprinkles on their brekkie I ask you ;) Those men... Mine let's our girl lick her finger then put it in the sugar bowl...oh my! Oh and that mirror, don't get me started. I collect vintage mirrors so bayside vintage could be very dangerous. Ooh I'm rambling now.
    Wishing you a week full of christmas craft, cups of tea and munchkin laughter. x x
