    Is it way colder in Victoria? Everyone says it is but I always wonder?
    Cushions?.. A hem.. Down that Little Lane has gazillions
    We have a Peppermint comp running this week and I was looking back through covers.. can’t believe yours was so long ago! It feels like last year!

    Lovely pics! You are a gun crafter-you should make some cushions! Get those big European pillows from Ikea (or smaller if you prefer), then you can choose whatever fabric you want! Cushion covers are super easy to make, I usually just do then with a tuck (like a pillowcase) rather than a zipper to make it even easier.

    Reading this post makes me want to stay in my PJs all day and yearn for a grandchild. The picture of your baby drawing is incredibly gorgeous. May I borrow?

    It’s such a beautiful time in our lives. I love watching my Magdalene who is nearly 17 months walk up and down our hall taking one toy at a time from the playroom into any room she fancies. She has an infatuation with hats and I constantly find her with a hat on her head. She just learned to say fart this week obviously learned from her older sister and I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s so nice having a hubby home on holidays isn’t it? My hubby isn’t a teacher but has so much rec leave he takes a day off here and there and I love it as do the girls.

    Sounds so nice. I’ve been trying to avoid melting in the sun during this California summer. But the great thing about living on the sixth floor is that I catch the nice, cool breeze that comes around during the afternoon. 🙂

      It would look like I was trying to sleep on my couch. Which is probably true. I got your package – thank you so much! I’m going to make a biiiiig blanket x

    Been struggling with the cold (and what’s with all the wind?!) lately as there are only so many soothing cups of hot tea that will help me appreciate winter for what it is. But we’ve had some nice days of sunshine and light breeze and I’ve been savouring them! I haven’t hung washing outside in ages but you described exactly what I’d expect to happen if I did!

    Love that pic of your little one drawing. She looks so comfy in what she’s wearing and what she’s doing. I just upgraded cushions after a long long time. I normally make new covers but this time got some fab ones on sale at Pillow Talk. I love them. Enjoy your little ones, they grow way too fast

    We have been loving the winter sun, marvelling at the frost, playing in the garden with freezing hands, finding good sticks to build a fire, cooking potato bake and having breakfast for dinner. Good times 🙂 love the photos!

    We have one of those trees with the big blousy pink flowers. It’s always a welcome winter bloomer – especially when the wind spreads the flowers all over the yard and it looks like we’re pompom bombed the place.

    We are working out a time to go to ikea (not close by, it’s an excursion lol) to get that exact storage system too, for Olivia’s toys and craft. Glad to see you love it! I think I’ll paint mine.
    As for cushions, head to Society6 for the best designs. They do free shipping once a month too. I live on that website. Love your pics as usual! I’m a light gal too, you don’t need a life haha you’re living the life!

      I almost bought the white one. I was so close. But then I figured I can paint this one white if I feel like it. Going to wait and see if we have to move, first! I’ve never had so much light – living on a hill makes all the difference!

    Glad to hear you’re vaguely surviving the Melbourne winter. We’re really bringing out the wind for you this year! I second the suggestion of society6 for cushions – amazing selection and good quality too. The only problem is there’s almost too much choice, I get stuck for aaaages looking at them all and trying to decide!

    What a delightful post – I’m so enthralled by snippets of people’s daily life. You have inspired me to get to ikea! I often baulk at spending money on things like that but I think I really need to get organised with the craft stuff as well – there is just so much to store! Happy winter warming xo

      I enjoy a peek into people’s lives too! And I resisted getting that thingammy, as we had open shelving that served its purpose just fine, albeit a little small. but we now need that for books and a craft cupboard need was opened… 😉

    My sister worked at Adairs and I just got her to select me some new cushions and throw rugs to update my lounge – super awesome as I didn’t need to think about it and I love the way it looks.
