Stills: A Weekly Collection









1. Tearing the lounge room apart only to rebuild it with more flair and creativity than a traditionalist such as myself ever could.
2. Winter days on the deck. Sun drenched and permanently covered in an array of half broken toys that are successfully cropped from this image.
3. Pizza night. If you were interested in the making of the Pizza Oven, hold tight- one day my nagging will prove fruitful and Dave will write a tutorial.
4. Bread, apple, nuts and tea.
5. Tenderness.
6. Adorable Elke knits. The mushroom cardi was thrifted when Pip was little and the grey was a hand knitted gift from this beautiful lady.
7. Spying on young Dave through the dining room window while he shovelled dirt. I'm that mother that will repulse her adolescent children by being deadly attracted to their father. Oh, so much to look forward to.

Okay friends, I'll look forward to seeing what 'stills' you've captured this week!

  7. Oh! The grey and white striped wrap is the same as the one Sunny lived in - the only one she wouldn't wriggle out of. All your photos are always so warm and cosy. AND I've finally joined your weekly stills collection - thanks for having me! B x

  9. I think rearranging the lounge room cushions is such a wonderful part of childhood & your 2 look so happy with the results. Lovely shot of Pip & Elke too. Just beautiful.

  16. I have given up on throw cushions for the moment. They spend more time on the floor than meticulously arranged on the couch!
    Love the sibling tenderness and the beautiful knits xx
