The Black Cat





My lovely flame haired friend Tess has a lovely little shop in Tumut, NSW called
"The Black Cat Gallery".

If you are ever in town and you love vintage and handmade you must drop in.

For everyone else who is far far away she has also started an etsy shop

Just spreading the lovely love....

The Red Leaf...


Here's my girl Lulu Jade...

She says she wants to be a cowgirl when she grows up...

and a Mumma...

She says she want to make things like me when she grows up
(don't grow up my baby girl - not yet)

She learnt how to do blanket stitch a few weeks back, she dyed her own scarf with onion skins. It is beautiful, it looks like flames.

Mostly i just feel blessed that she's ours..
I see the girl she is becoming and my heart fills with joy.

Oh my little ladybug xx

Some things are worth sharing...

I read this last night,
it's a letter a stunning friend of mine has written to her younger self.

I love it!

If only we really could reassure ourselves in this way...

Dominic King..

Sometimes i wonder what i'm doing here...
I mean in my life...
Like i know there is a place and purpose for us all and i wonder am i here, have i fulfilled it yet?

Our children desperately want a pet...

We have a fish.
His name is Dominic King, but you can't pick him up and squeeze love into him. He doesn't catch the ball or wag his tail when you come home...

I hear them repeat what we've told them to others "One day when we have our own place I'm gonna get a little kitty and call her Poncho, and Elijah is gonna get a guinea pig and Moses is going to get a boy dog"....

So we've got a loose plan and a suitcase full of dreams and are watching for an open door and being mindful of those that close and lead us elsewhere...

My beautiful husband wrote this down today;

'Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.' It's from Proverbs 13:12
So i know it's gonna be Ok...sometimes you just lose hope..that's what we have each other for..
