one: the one where you and your pals all have books out! two: this little suitcase contained my pompom arsenal for Wednesday’s workshop three: Riberty frogs – from my new book (made from Liberty prints, of course!) four: fabric paint for my latest project Hello! Sunday arvo rolls around again, so it must be time for One + Four = Life. The idea is to share four photos that sum up one week of your life (the week just gone). One (week) + Four (photos) = (your) Life. It’s a kind of photographic algebra, isn’t it? Or not. Here’s my week.
one : A Table In The Orchard by Michelle Crawford, tea and beads (and my book!) two : My favourite boots. Bought from Vintage Sole on my street three : My house looking tidier than usual (and Homeland) four : Pad Thai Geesh. I have had such a big week. My eyes are popping out and I must admit I had a tiny meltdown this morning, feeling the weight of it all. It’s okay though. I am fine now. Sometimes you just need to release that valve and things make more sense. A hot bath with lavender oil can help
one: a peek at my new book Craft For The Soul two: progress on my #100DayProject three: still an abundance of Easter eggs floating around my place four: egg cups – found at the Abbotsford Salvation Army Do you know what I have realised? I really don’t take that many photos! I think when you are constantly publishing online, as a blogger or a writer or whatever, you tend to either take A LOT of photos of everything, second-nature like OR you go in the other direction and keep your candid, personal moments just that. I am in the
one: patchwork pieces two: floor/cushions/blanket three: scheduling & Easter-y fun bits four: reading materials How quickly the week flies by. Luckily it’s Easter – my very favourite holiday of the year. No pressure to buy all the things or cook amazingly huge feasts or take big blocks of time off work (hello tight budget!) Instead it’s chocolate and buns and crafty times and comfort food and lunches out and walks and reading and hot baths and cosy days. ALL my favourite kinds of things. Yesterday we wandered into the city for lunch at Grand BBQ, some book shopping (see above)
This week in One + Four = Life… one: a tumble of blanket: after resting my sore wrist for over a week, I am finally back to crocheting! I’m not sure why it got so sore, but it’s something to do with holding the yarn tension and switching from making little granny square to pulling it all together (with a bit more yarn/project weight on my wrist as I do that!) two: a beast or two: If you’ve visited Melbourne Museum you probably love this exhibit as much as I do. The light in this room is terrible though… a
one: latch hooking Ubud style | two: drinks-gone-by | three: Craft For The Soul artwork | four: friendly donuts Hello! Here’s a cute thing I want to do. You might like it too?! Once a week. Four photos. To document your life. One + Four = Life! Every Sunday I’m going to host One + Four = Life on my blog. I HOPE it will get me excited about taking everyday photos again. Fingers crossed. Here’s what it’s all about… How it works . If you’d like to join in, just share your four photos from the week on your
all images are by Linzie Hunter I know some people are not fans of New Year’s resolutions. That’s okay. But I’m not like them. I am a huge fan of resolutions. It’s the one ritual of welcoming the new year that I love. The pressure to get tanked and clink glasses and pash when the clock strikes twelve does nothing for me. New resolutions for a fresh new year, on the other hand, makes me swoon with excitement. I think I’m pre-disposed to accepting new habits really easily, so maybe that’s what makes me a fan. I have excellent
Amazing handmade Terry De Havilland vs Liberty wedge: here Hello! What have you been doing, peaches? I have been trying to not work (it’s very hard for me) and doing quiet things. It’s so hot here at the moment. I know it’s only been two days of heat, but I am waiting for the change. I want to be able to get out and about without feeling exhausted and boiling. Do you know what I mean? I stumbled across a great show (which I’ve been streaming online). It’s called Liberty Of London and I’ve just watched Season 2 (only
This lovely little boat shed is quite near to my Nan’s place. It would make the perfect writers’ retreat, wouldn’t it? I would LOVE to spend some time here. It’s got a cute little jetty and a pink oven. PLUS it’s really not far out of town at all. You can see more about this gorgeous shack here. *swoon* x Pip
Hello! Hi! How is it all going, petal? I am going good. A bit weary, limping to the finish line, but pretty good on the whole! I did a bit of Christmas shopping today at Wilkins and Kent (on my street) and I saw these adorable enamelware things from TMOD. I had not heard of them before, but that is because I have been working/watching Gilmore girls and not getting out enough. As you can see I should have heard of them! Enamelware is a favourite thing of mine! I bought one of the KNOT mugs for my
Aw. Sass Cocker from Ask Alice (and Little Gold) plus her band of clever pals have come up with yet another fabulous calendar RIGHT when you need to be buying awesome things for great people.

Look! My tea set arrived. I love it. So much. I am going to collect the other pieces for the rest of my life. I am. There is a pink set and a blue set and the previously mentioned green set (the one that was on Ladies of London!) I am not sure if I will ever be able to get hold of the green set, to tell you the truth. I can’t find it anywhere online, but it can go on my wish list and I’ll cross my fingers.
