Stills: A Belated Weekly Collection









1. Morning light. I'll never tire of watching the shadows as they dance - it's ridiculous to think that some days I have to pry my eyes away from my iPhone to witness the glory of God's creation. Neon Glow verses the dawn of a new day.

2. Walking back from the local duck pond. We were searching for tadpoles- a new favourite hobby!

3. Tea?

4. Baby Elke sleeping soundly for some 20 minutes (before she wakes and needs to be put back to sleep again.

5. Glass bottles in my retro dresser.

6. Ducks at the duck pond.

7. Fancy Dave making his dandelion root coffee. An acquired taste to be sure.

I've got lots of very exciting things to share on the blog over the next few weeks! Can you believe I forgot to post the new addition to the Artist Series, thats on it's way (it's SO GOOD) along with other fun things like my Spring Bedroom makeover :)

Hope your weeks have been washing less.
