Merry Christmas...

I hope you have a wonderful day with your family + friends. I am happily ensconced at our farm with R and the boys - there's nothing like coming home, wandering the fields, heading down to the river, and generally mooching about. And with temps in the high twenties (or 60s) it looks like we have a blissful few weeks ahead.

Phew! The past week has been a whirlwind of pre-Christmas chaos planning. I honestly have made more batches of cookies, fudge, and ginger slice than is good for one's psyche. How has the past week been for you? I hope you've a stellar Christmas planned. Our trip home is looking like a whirlwind of friends and family, but a nice kind of whirlwind if there is such a thing. Have a lovely weekend, and safe travels if you're heading beyond your front door.
I have a serious girl-crush on Miranda Brooks.

Happy Monday - I hope you all had a grand weekend. Ours was lovely and relaxing which is always a nice thing. Unfortunately I spent most of it with a head cold which wasn't such a nice thing. Here's to a good week ahead.

Lots to love with Zara's kids collection.

Here we are on a soggy Sunday, mid November. It was practically dark at half past four today. The past week has been mixed. On the good (well, to be honest, great) news front I am the proud owner of a horse!! His name is Irish, and he is a very handsome chestnut thoroughbred. On the not so good news front I'm laid up in bed with a severely pulled back muscle. Ouch. Annoying, and somewhat ironic as I won't be riding for a wee while. Hopefully things are well in your neck of the woods. I'm looking forward to a quiet evening in with R's chicken and mushroom pie, followed by rhubarb and apple crumble with lots of whipped cream. Yum.

I too, wonder Mr Carroll.

One of my all time favourite images.

An extraordinarily lovely peony.

Gosh has it really been two weeks? Time just seems to be flying. We appear to arrived in November complete with shorter days, crisp temperatures, and leaves left, right and centre. On the exciting news front, we are now staying in Portland for another year...whoop whoop! And this morning I competed in my first horse show. Horrifically nerve wracking, but lots of fun. I even managed a second place in one class...whoop whoop! Here's a long overdue what:nots. Happy Sunday eve...

I have been coveting this Anne Hall print for ages. And this morning my very own copy arrived - what a treat!

Hello Sunday afternoon. How was the past week for you? Mine drifted by slowly while I did battle with a nasty cold. Slowness and colds aside a flattering highlight was having my Pinterest account included here. It totally made my day! I hope the week ahead is a good one. With R in China the boys and I have a few plans up our sleeves, starting with a trip to Salt & Straw to try out their new apple season inspired flavours.
