Spiderwebs are a constant source of delight for me. Such resilience for something so ethereal…

These go on the fire. Too much bother to get them open!

Reading his way through my bookshelf

Arthur and Jocelyn all cosied up on the sofa by leonie wise

So comfortable here!


fuelled by sunshine, my first batch of home-made kombucha, saturday morning bootcamp, cosy afternoons watching cooking shows…

made super-special because my parents came to stay + we slept out in our cosy studio and gave them our bedroom

sponsored by cheese & pickled shallot toasted sandwiches, apple & feijoa pies (made by my mother), bara brith, indian takeaways…

accompanied by a soundtrack of laundry spinning in the machine, the hum of the dishwasher, birdsong, lawnmowers.

how was your weekend?
