Misty visitor

Not the best photo – it had to be quick – but look who was wandering around in our garden the other evening.

Our stuff arrives on Saturday – I am so looking forward to it. Imagine having a muffin tin… A favourite book… Something for the girls to do on a rainy day… It’s going to be awesome.

Chicks building houses:

From Lloyd’s blog (so you may have already seen this) Linda made a treehouse in the woods of upstate New York. It’s so sweet, and simple and very cool and her photos of her friends and their treehouse weekends are the stuff of dreams.

Local collective : Mudgirls: “We are a network of women who build natural structures for ourselves and each other, as well as helping others build their own, and sharing natural building skills through affordable workshops.  We specialize in building with cob, as well as other natural material such as strawbale, driftwood, adobe, cordwood and recycled materials like glass, car tires, glass bottles and more.”

    Wow, is this island for real? Sounds like some sort of organic, permaculture utopia! Can’t wait to see how you and your family grow there (and what you make!)

    I actually think it’s a great picture. The colours are vibrant but muted. Lucky you for having such a visitor.

    I hope you can find everything you need amongst your stuff. We moved three months ago and I still can’t find my stab blender (we are living without homemade pesto at the moment and it’s terrible) and my Food Safari cookbook (oh Food Safari cookbook, how I love thee)… terribly frustrating!Looking at the misty photo reminds me that it was a year ago that Eastern Australia had THAT dust storm. I can’t believe it was already a year ago.

  9. Hello Claire. I’m loving the content of your blog and have been reading it since being introduced by Pip over at Meet me at mikes…ooh and Lloyds too….he seems like such an interesting character.I’m a knitter but you inspired me to try out crocheting. I loved the look of your granny blanket and the Nanny McPhee image….hope you don’t mind I pinched it…..but have linked over to your blog so everyone else can see how good yours is too.

    Amazing image of the deer. We live it Oxford, England. We’re really close to the city but back on to a woods and get little monk jack deer coming into the garden. They eat everything in sight so have to share our vegetables with them but since they let us share their woods we think it’s a fair exchange.

    I look forward to reading about your continuing adventures.Deb
