Stills: A Weekly Collection {the weekend edition}




1. Wild flowers from our weekend bush walk. We traveled from the highest point to the lowest, down a muddy gully all the way to the ocean. Zeph walked and whined, Pip walked, begged to be carried and whined while Elke rode in the pouch, slept and whined. It was a winning walk, so relaxing.

2. the walk was worth it, we had this hidden gem all to ourselves. If the weather was warmer we all would have splashed by the shore in the razz. Alas, it was far too cool so we stayed fully clothed.

3. The fun part - sand rolling, water splashing and fruit picnicing.

4. Baby Elke sporting a tweed all in one and spending some time with the flamingo pillow sent to us by Empire Lane (who's new collection is slightly luscious).

5/6. Wood fired pizzas with a gaggle of plaid clad men, as you may have seen on instagram. Even the ladies were sporting a touch of tartan. As for the pizza, it was delicious. Prawn, rocket and chilli on top and Pepperoni and blue cheese below- 4 mins in the outdoor oven a BAM, you're pigging out!

Looking forward to seeing yours!

    Em, is the stunning cabinetry around your window in your bedroom from anywhere in particular? I love it! We are nearly close to renovating our bedroom and I would love something like this.

  3. I'm in love with the photo of Elke giggling on the bed it's not doing a lot to keep my cluckiness under control! Gorgeous beach pics - sometimes the whining is completely worth it!

  7. Hi Emily, not sure what I am doing wrong to get the little x and not a number on the link up. This is only my second time doing it and last week was the same. I had another go on a different link up and it has done the same so now I have two link ups for the same post. Not sure if you can delete it or work out what I might be doing wrong.

    1. hey Kathy! You've done exactly the right thing! When you add your own link a little X will show so that you can delete it if you like- when every one else see's your link, it will have a number!

      thanks so much for joining in, it's lovely to have you!

  8. Oh how I miss the ocean! Being from the South Coast NSW and living in Alice Springs sure does make me crave that salty sea air. Lovely pics.
