lovely links...

Enjoying some beautiful autumn weather lately - cold, crisp mornings, followed by warm, sunny days. We could probably use some rain, but I'm sure that's on its way too...

This will quite possibly make you cry (sorry) - but in a good way, honest.

And this one might make you smile.

An inspiring jeweller.

Some thoughts on messing around.

Investigating hygge (this kind of makes me want to visit Denmark).

A good dose of lemony citrus-y goodness in the form of baked goods - meyer lemon pecan cookies -  lemon, almond & chia seed muffins -  mini citrus tarts - lemon ricotta almond cake - meyer lemon magic custard cake (I really want our lemons to hurry up & ripen so I can try this).

A gorgeous wedding, in a gorgeous forest.

Featuring flowers: Pink. Orange. Pale. Autumnal. Arranged.

A magical, snow-covered city. Also here & here. Plus, too sweet not to share.

good golly, miss Holly

Just wanted to introduce you to our newest family member - the gorgeous bundle of cute that is Holly.

She's a seven month old moodle (maltese x poodle), who we collected on Sunday & she's very sweet, cuddly & affectionate - I think she'd spend pretty much her whole day curled up on a lap if we let her :)

full credit for the title goes to Kathryn :)

writers' week 2014

Another year, another Adelaide Writers' Week - held as always in beautiful parkland in the city - a celebration of books & reading & writing. Attending has become something of a tradition for us, one I hope continues. We had a lovely time listening to all the authors speaking about their work - Alexander McCall Smith was a real highlight, just as lovely as his books - but I enjoyed every session we listened to.

One of the many lovely things about Adelaide's literary festival is the fact that being free to attend means you can arrive early, or decide to hang around a little longer & catch authors or talks you might not have picked, but which often turn out to be some of the best.

I know my post is a bit photo heavy for something that's about a book event, but I kind of like letting my pictures do the talking. If you would like a more, well, writer-y perspective, head on over to Kathryn's blog.

a day at the market | march

Another lovely market day - started out grey & rainy (although we didn't get too wet, thankfully), with scattered sunny patches & by the time we were packing up it was a cool but sunshiny day. A little quiet perhaps, but plenty of people braved the weather & we had a lovely time.

It was also the twelve-month anniversary of our first Wirrabara Producers Market stall :)

flinders street market | march

Had a lovely time at the Flinders Street Market on Sunday - met some lovely people, lots of gorgeous-ness to look at, the stall looked quite nice & I was pretty happy with how my new banner looks. The day was a bit warm, so we're looking forward to some cooler weather next month - I'll share the date once we decide for certain.

also, I just wanted to show off the beautiful dress that Mum made me before we went to Queensland last year - I love it & got lots of compliments on Sunday :)
