A glorious Winter day

Winter is not my favourite season. It’s cold. Washing doesn’t dry when its hung out. It gets dark early. It’s so dreary. Today though, it seems Winter has taken the day off. It’s a glorious Sydney day. The kind that makes you want to eat outside. The kind that makes you happy. Today doesn’t feel […]

Colour crush: Emerald

It has been said that Emerald is the colour for 2013. We’re smitten. It’s sophisticated, classic and has a hint of whimsy. We can’t help but think of the Wizard of Oz. Emerald really is perfect for any season. These lovely images were found on Pinterest.

Baking days

Wouldn’t it be nice to spend some time baking. To have a home filled with the aroma of a freshly baked pie. To be able to say you made it from scratch. I’m planning to try my hand at this blackberry pie with cinnamon custard found on food writer, Sophie Hansen’s blog, Local is Lovely. […]
