I am so looking forward to spending sometime at home this Easter long weekend. We simply love being at home, even more so now that we have a baby.
I was fortunate to grow up in a lovely home, not modern or flash, but full of warmth and beautiful things. To this day, I still have friends that remember my parents old house very fondly - it was a Queenslander that had a lot of character. Yes, I confess to having an unhealthy obsession with pinterest and architecturally designed homes that have been decorated and styled by interior designers, but in truth, I am much more interested in spaces and homes that are 'homely' and reflect the people who live in them.
I often joke to my friends that I love our little home because it is 'perfectly imperfect'- it is true!
Over the next few months as I become more familiar with my camera, I intend on posting photos of some vignette's from around our house. Speaking of which, you will be pleased to know that the veggie patch is coming along nicely. I have painted the old laundry tubs raspberry pink! They look great. I have also planted star jasmine in them to grow over the front of our deck.
I haven't forgotten about my regular baking post either. I have a very important baking challenge for next week when I bake my first birthday cake - 'Women's Weekly' style. My little boy is turning one. Oh God, please no baking disasters that day - imagine! Although it could make for a funny post. Don't worry. I will provide photos of the cake irrespective of its presentation.
Anyway, have a relaxing Easter and long weekend.
Will post again early next week. Bear with me, I have some lovely posts planned for the upcoming weeks.
