a colourful weekend
Ah, nothing like a few days off blogging to enjoy a colourful action packed weekend & generate new ideas for posts. With Spring almost here, my husband & i have been preparing our crappy-state-of-backgarden-grass for weeks, we're starting to see results. I also planted a new barrel of herbs & vegetables, following the no-dig-garden advice from these wonderful books.
I kicked off the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation this morning with berries & ricotta on grainy bread - i have two new tips - defrost frozen berries in a colander & don't let berries roll off your toast, raspberries stain!!
Indulged in a couple of new dresses & tops from Country Road - to say i have fallen back in love with green is an understatement. I adore stripes & this retro pattern, neat way to side step the-fluorescent-movement this season.
What a gorgeous way to say i-heart-leopard print, in a cute handbag case. I picked up the rattan version of this last season from Seed, i use it as a sewing case or picnic-for-two with my husband. I love having him back in Canberra, we meet for lunch twice a week, it's like dating all over again, when i was at Uni, he'd meet me for 10 minutes here & there between lectures, then drive me home, just to say hello.
A gift for a nephew's birthday - he is obsessed with Eric Carle, but really, who isn't??
The colourful imagination of my eldest daughter, make what you want out of these fresh eggs . . . bulls eyes right??
Ah, glorious sunshine on the weekend had me in a flowing dress & back in Birkenstocks. I picked up these purple patent leather beauties in Venice 2 years ago. I do need a pedicure (i say seeing i've had like one in the past decade) & i'm thinking of a fun polish colour, maybe purple, green or orange?? Ideas!!
Poof, there you have it, heading into a busy week with a huge smile on my face, i'm up early enough to do 2 loads of washing, walk the dog, feed the chickens, make school lunches & a post before the school run, bliss!! Love Posie
