Winter so far

{Instagram photos, @thedaydreaminggirl}
 
Winter so far
has been mild and lovely,
with blue skies,
day trips out to the beach or the fields.
It's been so sunny the blossoms have started,
very early yes, but I am not complaining.

I am keeping my fingers crossed
that the next 2 months of Winter
are just as mild and lovely.

New typography, teal and turquoise photo block sets






New photo blocks are available over on Etsy!
I finally got round to making up samples 
of the teal, turquoise and bright blue beach typography photos from this past summer.
As you can imagine, 
being a lover of blue skies, the beach, adventures and the sun,
these are my new favourites.

Happy Friday to you all!

It's been a while!


Hello blog!
It has been quite a while, hasn't it.
I have been in a bit of a blog rut.
I am hoping it has passed, and the words will start to flow again.
So, here we are!

I was so thrilled to have a photo in the May issue of Australian Home Ideas magazine,
and even more thrilled that my lovely friend Lou sent me a copy from Melbourne.

The Teal Ocean, available over on Down That Little Lane,
and on Etsy for international customers.

Chase the Sun

{Chase the Sun, print available here}

This summer has been all about chasing the sun.
We haven't seen it that often;
after our fabulously hot and sunny spring 
that had us swimming at the outdoor pool in November,
we all thought we were in for another long hot summer.
However, it feels like we are waiting for it to arrive.
When we do have the hot sunny days, 
we chase the sun,
to the coast,
to the beach,
to the pool.

When it streams in through the windows at various times of the day
I find the kids turning their faces to it,
or sitting in the sunniest chair to soak up the warmth.

Sunshine,
please show us your gorgeous rays.
We love you so.

New Work - road trip inspired



I am really inspired right now,
we have been out to the coast a few times, 
and there is something about being a passenger in the front seat
that gets my creative juices flowing.
I have pages of little sayings I plan to use on beach photos,
all inspired by conversations and musings in the car.

Here are the first 2 of the new series,
I hope you enjoy them!

2013 - in Instagram


I had hoped to post this yesterday,
but the day got away on me. 
These photos are from Instagram,
and I made myself choose 
one from each month of 2013.
It was hard to pick just one,
but each of these sums up how I felt about that month.
It's funny looking back on a year in pictures,
things that felt so long ago weren't actually,
and vice versa.

I am so grateful to Instagram, 
and the ability we have with modern technology 
to capture our moments.

2013, you were fun.
The highlight (in adventure terms)
would have to be our trip to Melbourne,
to visit family, and see Of Monsters and Men play.

I wonder what adventures 2014 will bring?
