the week that was..

Winter is well and truly here.  I love this season, I can't help it!
I know it's freezing cold and when it rains endlessly, which it has, and the yard is a swamp and your finger tips seem to be forever icy, it can be a bit depressing and restricting at times..  
I do my best, however, to embrace this season for all it's misty fog, early morning frost underfoot, and the opportunity to rug up in winter warmers.  That's my favourite bit, dressing up for winter. I put more effort into my 'outfits' this time of year, even if I'm just hanging about at home.  It makes me feel good.  I love everything about winter fashion! 
 I love stopping at local cafes in the poring rain, sitting on cosy chairs and drinking hot coffee..
notes from my big boy (nothing to do with winter, just a sweet sentiment that warmed my heart).. 
watching wild waves crash in and feeling the bitter cold mist across my face.. 
 these two little fella's, best mates, winter doesn't hold them back from everyday adventure..
celebrations of the best kind, a dear friends' 40th birthday...
there she is, lighting the zillions of candles before guests arrive. Her party theme was 'where glamour meets the bush' held in this amazing venue all rustic and glamorous, surrounded by candles, chandeliers tin and timber. Magnificent!  
where my gorgeous man cooked up a stunning feast, with me his trusty assisitant..

It was the perfect end to a crazy hectic week..


  1. I love the winter months for many of the same reasons though this year the chill seems to have seeped into my bones and I have found myself aching for a little sunshine.
    Those chairs are fabulous as is your winter fashion.
