seeds // the timelessness of books


I saw this quote over on The Art of Simple on the weekend and thought it was wonderfully true.

It’s quite apt as the  youngest makes his way through the Harry Potter series and I wonder if it’s time for a re-read of the books myself.

Some of my favourite books I’ve read as an adult are actually meant for a much younger audience. And who doesn’t love a trip down memory lane with a delve into an Enid Blyton book and joining the adventures of the Faraway Tree gang or the naughtiest girl in school.

What’s your favourite childhood book?

it’s good to be home


We’ve been jumping back into routine today after a magical three days in the beautiful capital of Sydney.

Well, as routine as you can be when you are a tad exhaustipated and there is a pile of luggage in the middle of the lounge room … and no food in the fridge.

I’m not a great traveller ~ more an anxious, worrying traveller. But this was one of the more relaxed weekends away I have done.

It’s good to be home. I’m a homebody by nature ~ I love seeing gorgeous views, taking photos in new places, enjoying new experiences and taking a holiday.

But I crave the comfort of home ~ my bed, my shower, my things. And while I enjoy all the new sights and sounds ~ and love the time away when I’m there ~ I rarely crave the urge to travel.

Don’t worry, the Sydney slide night will be up soon. We have a fantastic time and naturally there is tons of photos!

Stay tuned!




seeds // castles in the clouds

A thought for Tuesday ~ "There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds". GK Chesterton #favequote #wordswagapp


Do you have a favourite quote, or two? This is one of mine. And this.

These are the ones I know by heart, they have their own rhythm in my heart. The coloured pencil I’ve remember first reading about the age of 14 or 15.

If you’ve hung around here a while, or been part of my [long-forgotten] shop, they might seem familiar.

So I’ve also been playing with the Word Swag app. It was a big part of the recent Problogger conference and so I searched it out and downloaded it to play with.

It’s easy and a lot of fun. If you’re a bit obsessed with words and design [who, me?!], you will love it.
