Long Weekend - Marrawah







A few more shots from the weekend, we took a little drive to Marrawah, wow that place is so incredibly beautiful. You may or may not know that I love green and seeing those hills with the ocean and trees like that...kinda blew me away.

Home Stuff I Like Right Now






I've been thinking a lot about homes lately, and I've been particularly inspired by those of Jennifer of A Merry Mishap and Kerry of The Seventy Tree. I love their simplicity and calmness but also they have the ability to add colour and pattern so easily to the basics they have. These are a few of the things I have my eye on right now:

Long Weekend - Stanley









We headed off to the north west coast of Tasmania on friday for the long weekend and I loved it, it is so beautiful up there, all green and beautiful big landscapes, quite different to the scenery I am used to in the south. Admittedly the weather was pretty amazing for winter, perfect blue skies and sunshine and possibly an extra few minutes of daylight (it truly does seem to make a difference), but it was wonderful in every other way too. I am realising that there are so many places in my home state I don't know at all and think maybe more holidays at home are in order for the future.

Early Long Weekend



Tomorrow I'm starting the long weekend a day early and I can't wait, I'm of to see parts of Tasmania I haven't been to since I was a child. I forget sometimes that there are places here to be excited to visit. This week has been tiring, but my head cold is finally going away so I'm looking forward to a change of scenery and some exploration. Hopefully some photographs to share once I get back.

Good Mail



Last week this seriously sweet cloud bread board from Snug Studio arrived in my letterbox. I love it. This year I have been so so good with not buying unnecessary bits and pieces, in fact I think I really have only made purchases of things actually needed, but every now and again I crave something new and possibly a little frivolous. I think this fit the bill perfectly!

Winter




Seems that June has arrived far too quickly for my liking, now it's that quiet time of the year when things slow down, the days get colder and darker and I struggle a bit. This weekend really did feel wintery and I've started it off with a sinus infection followed by a head cold...

I have a few things I want to achieve this winter though and I'm hoping they will get me through: getting better at running outside (as opposed to the treadmill at the gym), learning to make brioche and bagels, knitting and updating the design here. I'm sure there are others.....any suggestions?
