Stills: A Weekly Collection











1. Weekend Wanderings. More to come.
2. Fresh and fluffy bed buddies, straight out of the washing machine.
3. Home made Neenish tart nipples with obligatory marigold.
4. An old photo of our master bedroom that has recently been used as part of a feature on The Beetle Shack over at House Nerd. It was such an honour to be included and I strongly recommend a good long look around this beautiful blog with a cup of tea in hand.
5. A teeny tiny little green frog that the neighbours bought over for show and tell, much to the delight of the children.
6. She's just climbing tree's you know. She's two now. She back chats and everything. Her fruity striped play suit was a birthday gift from this treasure trove of hand made goodies.
7. Quiet time is craft time. The boy is creative and I love it.

  8. love the marigold. when I went to pick up our raw milk from the farm tonight there was a sign on the blackboard saying "cut flowers $1 each" and empty milk bottles holding several marigolds and foxgloves - all yellowy orange. so nice to come here and see another marigold too.

    the lady baby's looking like a lady, no more baby! x

  14. Early here in this part of the world & I am sipping coffee and looking through your Weekly Stills. They are Beautiful. Beautiful. & Beyond just the sweet and lovely nature of these photos, I am struck by the LOVE that emanates through them. The love that only a parent can give, the sort of LoVE that wraps up every second of our childrens' lives and lets them know they are safe and secure, and loved, no.matter.what. AND I LOVE how you have captured that. I also clicked through to the House-Nerd. Adore the wonderful way your house was photographed: Just perfect. thanks so for sharing all this. Have a lovely beginning to your week. xxoo

  23. It was probably as hard to catch a shot of the small girl as it was of the little green gecco.
    Great work!
