1. Each morning Dave wanders down the back to feed the bunnies and chooks. Most of the time he's followed by at least one gumboot clad child - Baby Elk and the dappled morning beams falling upon her just 'so'.

2. The the ivy that holds our dilapidated side fence up.

3. Fine bone china and plastic cups. 

4. Never far apart. Tottering about the garden together like a pair of retirees. 

5. My sweetest Pip can't seem to figure out her sleeping pattern since daylight savings began. Asleep on the couch at 4:30 in her brothers Lego PJ's layered with a hand me down Star Wars tee. The girl knows what's up.

6. Yesterday the tree loppers came and skilfully chopped down an old Turpentine from our yard. The crown had fallen out of it about a year ago (with an almighty bang). We asked them to leave the stump so that we* can build the kids an elaborate cubby.

7. Fresh native blooms for the table.

8. Seriously great legs in seriously great pants. I just found this pic from our 'La Boheme' Bohemian Traders shoot. I've been loving these pants of late… if only I could have the legs too!

9. Last night we celebrated my Father in Law's 60th birthday with good wine, great friends and German sausages. 

* that'd be the royal we. Dave will do it, naturally.

    Here's a link to some of my stills... does it matter that they were from September?! xx

  4. Such pretty china - and those plastic cups are lovely! Where are they from? I took some photos at a market last weekend. They're here if you want to have a look.

  5. Gorgeous photos as usual! I just posted a few of our changing leaves.

  6. I really love your photos, and the snippets of your life (in a totally non-stalkerish weird way of course) I love that it inspires me to create some sort of cohesive collection for myself. My latest collection is here:
