bits & bobs of school holidays beach cottage style
Fri 28th, Sep, 2012
Well, it’s Friday and not such a thank god it’s Friday feeling here today, because with the school holidays there have been less schedules, less running around, no lunches to pack or uniforms to iron and more laying on the beach with a coffee…just the way I like it.
So a few little snaps, all of these from my phone, a bit more casual and day to day (which according to my inbox you like a lot)
I have been out on the deck a lot..the great thing about it is that it’s an extension of the house and lovely for that fresh air indoors/outdoors feeling…
I treated myself to a few new and new to me books lately…isn’t there just something pretty wonderful about receiving a parcel with books in it? …I love love love me blogs, Instagram, Pinterest, as you may well have picked up by now…the internet has made sharing with girls who like the same thing as me a lovely journey…but something about sitting outside on the deck with a crisp new or perhaps shabby old pre-loved book…I like that…something about the pages turning and the feel of it in your hand…with a bowl of coffee…or six
I think these daisies are everlasting…still going strong and in the dining room
More flowers from my garden, love flowers in things other than vases, if you know what I mean, and I have a bit of a thing for tea caddies it’s the English blood I do my best to turn Aussie but still remains, in these here veins
…this one is a pale pastel caddy that lends itself most beautifully to a bit of flower-plonking
I am loving these pops of pink…I took lots of cuttings last year from geraniums and really they have been flowering, albeit sporadically all through the Winter, but now the warmer weather is kicking in there are lots of flowers on the geraniums…(insert a whoop and a high kick, it’s only taken 4 years) …I am slowly learning what thrives…my roses do not
School holidays means naps…well not for the young ones, but for birds with wobbly white bits when that 3 o’ clock slump hits? Totally.
at last but not least…me and Barls with a cup of tea and boots and flowers…he follows me everywhere….love
