Stills: A Weekly Collection






1. Easily my favourite room in the house. Our master bed in the afternoon light, warming up nicely and willing me in.
2. As close as I get to above mentioned bed. My scarf and my jacket.
3. Succulent on sideboard.
4. Pre school art works sprawling all over the house. Taped to walls, doors and the fridge.
5. My very own therapeutic Ouch tassel. Pippa advised me to run my fingers through it daily - a calming ritual. Pippa darling, what made you think I should require such a ritual? ;)
6. Early education - 'Elke, you see red. You see yellow'.
7. Must be winter. rain jackets at the front door and a muddy pile of gumboots just out of frame.
8. Little Elke bed filled with treasures. Bassinet sheet made by my darling mum when Pip was a babe, vintage alpaca cardi collected from my local market and a dancing elephant from Nana Huchy.

TAH DAHHH another week down. Can you believe we are half way through this year? Life, slow down - I can already see my babies growing up and leaving me.

Hope your weeks were beautiful my friends! Lets all put potatoes in the slow cooker on monday morning and devour a hot lunch at 12- best idea ever Michelle, thank you. There was so much great food advice on this post, I'll be trying a few of your suggestions... especially those that recommend chocolate.

  2. I was thinking the exact same thing this week! I'm a teacher so I break my year down in terms... What hit me is that Term 3 is upon us already! I'm loving Elke's little grey friend in her tutu :) A lovely week to you Em.

  6. Gorgeous shot of your bed. I often stare longingly at mine throughout the day... and that's about as far as I get. Unless I am ordered to sit and watch a few episodes of Peppa Pig with the toddler.
    I hope the coming week finds an easy rhythm Em xo

  28. Hey Em,
    Beautiful photos as usual :-) What's the colour you have on the wall behind the "Smile" print? (if you remember?) We're painting at home at the mo and I'm struggling to get the colours right! This is what we want but when we painted with what I thought was going to look like that, it came out way more blue...too blue...colour samples are not my friends!! But you are! haha xx
