Hello Lovelies. How are you all? Thanks for joining me today. I’m pleased so many of you enjoyed my photo shoot from last week. The good news is that I have another one to share today, and hold onto your hats ladies, this will delight all of you crazy vintage lovers.
Hello my dear ones,
It is wonderful to be here with you. Grab a cuppa, find a secret place and run away with me for a few minutes.
Whoa! What a week. I hardly know where to begin. It was one of those delightful times when any idealistic version of motherhood is thrown out the window and you are striving with every force inside you not to turn into a monster and sell your children to the nice little old lady with a house made of sweets.
How are you going? I hope you are all hanging in there with the continued lockdown. It’s been a bit of a topsy turvy ride for this mama bear, as it has for many others I imagine, but with amazing support from the school, realising and accepting my own limitations and taking some time out alone, I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and I think we might just make it through this with all of our sanity in tact!
Thank you for dropping in today. I hope you are all surviving lockdown ok.
What strange times we are living in. They almost seems surreal. Like all of you, I have been trying to find my ‘sea legs’ and steady myself enough to walk rather than stumble through all of these challenges. Currently, however, staying with the sea analogy, I’m more like the rookie sailor hurling his guts up over the side of the ship. Nice.
Whoa! What a week! Lockdown has finally reached us, squeezing it’s gnarly grip around our neck and life has been all topsy turvy ever since. I take my hat off to you precious mamas who have been doing the ‘great juggle’ for many weeks already. I don’t know how on earth you aren’t going mad! Mind you, there are 12 people in our household (at last count! haha!) so that might have something to do with me going a little bit loopy!
Anyway…I have had enough of misery and mayhem and decided it’s time to escape into a wonderland of cake and twirling ballerinas, if only for a few moments. I have been sitting on this sweet vintage ballet party for over a year now. I was incredibly honoured to have it featured in Mingle Magazine, a prominent American party styling mag.
Good morning lovelies.
It really is a treat to be here today. Thank you so much for stopping by.
As I write this post, reflecting on these beautiful images of something as simple as a decorated cake, I remember one of the happiest days I have had this year. These images are a labour of love, an expression of my idea of beauty. They bring me so much joy and as I mentioned in my last post, have ignited within me an adventurous spark and longing to explore my own backyard (and hopefully further afield) with a cake and a camera in my hands (but not at the same time! Ha).
Hello Lovelies! Thanks for visiting today. I am so happy to be here. This is a post I have been quite excited about sharing. If you have been hanging out with me over on Instagram you would have heard me talk of a recent road trip I went on with one of my cakes. Yes, that’s cake, not kids! Sounds a bit crazy I know, but it was something I have wanted to do for years.
Hello Lovelies, how has your week been? Another topsy turvy one with Covid wreaking havoc once again. We had our daughter’s 18th planned for today, but needed to cancel as most of her friends were coming from Sydney. As it turns out, we are enjoying glorious rain this weekend anyway, so in a word phew! Not the best weekend for a party as it turns out.
It’s so nice to be back here with you. I want to thank you for all of the love and support you showed as we remembered our sweet heavenly son Noah this month. I was really touched by your kindness and comments. It might not seem like much, but those small acts of reaching out in love and compassion make all the difference in the lonely, lifelong journey of grief.
