We've been having some lovely rain - the perfect weather for hot tea & catching up on some reading...
Looking forward to seeing the photos from Jess & Nick's trip, Natasha has me dreaming of Paris & Meredith has me dreaming of San Francisco pt1 | pt2...
Happy 3rd Anniversary to Alice - I love her photography & these gorgeous portraits are a great example.
plus more gorgeousness, with a red VW bus, a wedding at a stunning location & then there are some stylish ladies.
Some beautiful autumn colour over on everyday miracles & also at 74 lime Lane. Also here & here.
So much delicious looking food on my pinboard - would especially like to try Honey & Pear muffins, as well as Honey Chocolate Chunk cookies.
Also some beautiful, abandoned places & the champion's crown

Last week we headed into the Wirrabara Forest to walk the trail up Mt Ellen (there are a few steep bits, but it's not a big climb like Mt Remarkable). The plan was to have morning tea & take some family portraits at the top.
As we drove into the forest though, the rain started falling - we decided to go on anyway & it was a wet but fun walk. It rained pretty steadily for most of the time, with a few breaks & a couple of heavier showers in between. You can't really tell in these photos, but it was pretty wet & mushy under foot.
Normally you can see a long way from the top, but everything was shrouded in misty rain, that & the wind meant we decided against tea & portraits at the top. Instead, after we made our way back to the car we drove to the picnic ground & sat under the shelter there to have our lunch/morning tea.
photo 4 (of the lookout sign) was taken by Kathryn, all the others are mine.

Just wanted to show off my new jumper (sweater) from Sealmaiden. I fell in love with the gorgeous feather print on the neckline & am very happy to report that it is also super soft & comfortable. Plus it's that nice deep-ish grey that goes with pretty much anything.
I love Sylke's designs - wouldn't mind adding this owl pullover or this t-shirt to my wardrobe...

...of the gorgeous earrings I bought from minnette vs. corey at the Bowerbird Bazaar.
Minnette & Corey are Adelaide based jewellers, who design & make a gorgeous range of sterling silver jewellery - these fan earrings are one of Corey's designs.
They're lovely & light & hang beautifully - I'm really enjoying wearing them. Minnette was one of my teachers for the silversmithing course I attended last year, so it was lovely to see her again too.
You can get your own pair of fans on their website. Or perhaps some buttons, or a little sparrow, or one of their other gorgeous creations...
