Loving this bunting made by my super clever friend Ali. She took an old book out of the box going to the the op shop on our verandah before we moved, and turned it into this. It's up on our new wall. I admire it every day.

Loving all-in-one cloth nappies! Not that there's anything wrong with the old terry towelling and cover number, but these are GREAT!

Loving trying to figure out what to do with pomegranates. Salad? Margarita?

Loving that everywhere you turn in my Mum's garden there's a hidden fairy house, or a tiny seat, or real mushrooms and almost-real fairies.

Loving that we've got our first contract to supply our free-range eggs. Love our hens.

Loving looking at a bare paddock and knowing it'll look like this in a mere ten years. (Coffee trees!)

Love this ancient and refurbished dog kennel, and the dog who's now in it.

Love that bear, beloved of Henry. I'd never realised that parents love your old special friends almost as much as you did.

Loving these pretty leaves I gathered today for a friend for her creative arranging.

Loving crocheted flowers pinned on as brooches! More crocheted flowers (many, many more!) shortly. 

Hope your week has ended gently and you've got something delicious planned for the weekend. 

Thanks for stopping in, and particularly for the warm welcome back after my little break, I really appreciate your gorgeous connection with this little space. It's awesome.

Everything is so beautiful! If someone had told me when I was a teen that I would envy someone’s farm I probably would have laughed, but you have such a bit of heaven! Have a wonderful weekend!

What a beautiful collection of ‘love’! My husband would think his world was complete if he could grow his own coffee. He’s just beginning to roast his own after buying it from a roaster for 5 years, so it’s all a rather big adventure right now.

And that bear. He looks so forlorn and cute at the same time. I remember feeling traumatised seeing my own bears hanging on the line by their ears. So distressing to see such a friend treated that way….but Mum knew it was the best thing for us both.

wonderful – we loved your chooks (but love our 3 more!). Once you start selling your coffee, please broadcast loud and clear -the closest (for local produce) we have found so far is Central Coast, you will take a few hundred k’s off that.
Good luck with all you are doing. Janet

I have serious farm envy. Hubby and I both dream of one day owning a small farm and lots of chooks. That bunting is so cute!!!

Oh my! I’m loving seeing what YOUR’E loving at the moment. Your farm is looking amazing. We are in the process of getting some chickens, and seriously, my heart skips a beat when I see a broad of happy hens wandering around. Can’t wait to get ours. Now….there’s just that small issue of building a coop…. !! So great hearing from you again! 🙂

You are my all-time favorite blog! So glad things are working out so well for you in all the ventures you have embarked upon! We grow lots of things but coffee? Wow! You’d think if I can grow poms I could grow coffee . . . I’ll have to look into it! My best for a great weekend! xxx
