Stills : A Weekly Collection



1. My beautiful first born baby boy perched atop a giant concrete block (one of many used to landscape our yard).
2. Apple blossoms.
3. Oh, you know what that is. Glorious fimo fresh from the oven.
4. Zeph and the crane saw. Deep in playdough play.
5. That little lady baby slumbering on my bed amongst the patterned pillows.
6. Looking up.
7. A corner in Zeph's room. Undoubtedly one of my favourite corners in the house with it's ever changing light and penguin wallpaper.
8. The lumpy batch of cornflour paint I made on this marvellous day.
9. Under the shade of the Magnolia, a place we find ourselves often.
10. Marigolds in the garden. I'm having a sustained love affair with this humble flour.

  2. Apple blossoms? Beautiful! We've got a tiny little citrus blossom on our dwarf lemon tree. The scent is amazing. x

  3. Now those are some decent concrete blocks! Is your yard finished? Is this part of the retaining wall?
    I'm heading for my first "marvelous day" back tomorrow. Gulp!
    I think i need to get some playdough making and cornflour painting on the agenda!
    Wishing you a happy week beautiful xo

  5. Love the perspective on the first image with Zeph looking so tiny (he normally looks like a big boy next to Pippi). And FIMO, I have some in my 'craft' box which is obviously just dying to be played with. Will you be revealing your final product? ;)
