Rewind : Handmade Holidays

Posted on December 9, 2014 | 3:50 am

Despite xmas sneaking up on me like a very sneaky thing, I'm definitely feeling the festive spirit this year. I think a lot of that's to do with having a house, a house that we love. Last year around this time we were very much not moving into our house, despite wanting to be in 'before xmas'. (Pro tip - never say those words to a builder, architect or recent ...

Death by Doxie : Elfi Loves Laundry

Posted on December 5, 2014 | 1:30 am

The dogs have had a longstanding love affair with laundry, clean and dirty. When Ferdi was a pup I'd often find him nesting in the laundry basket, and Elfi's favourite days of the week are bed stripping days - when we throw all the sheets and pillow cases and doona covers into a big pile and she clambers on top like a mountain goat. Even better if there's a patch...

The Kindness of (Almost) Strangers

Posted on December 3, 2014 | 3:49 am

Seven years ago, maybe more, when Ferdi first came into our life, when he looked like this (ie. freaking adorable), we lived in an apartment in Potts Point. I'd always had dogs, and those dogs had always slept wherever they wanted, even if that meant my bed. But my husband hadn't had a dog since he...

Styling, Food + Photography at The School

Posted on November 27, 2014 | 7:01 pm

A few Sundays ago I had the pleasure and the privilege of attending a food photography workshop as a guest of Olympus. It was two hours of fun at The School, led by the gorgeously enthusiastic Megan Morton and featuring some serious styling and...

Jorpins Vintage on Etsy

Posted on November 19, 2014 | 7:52 pm

Now that the renovation is finished (or as finished as these things ever are), and we're pretty well settled back in Australia, I've been turning my mind and my time to some new projects. One of which is Jorpins Vintage - my new store on Etsy where I sell retro goodness. Channelling my love of all...

Typography Tuesday : David Walsh on Death

Posted on November 17, 2014 | 7:20 pm

And right here we have Exhibit A on why I'll never win Pinterest, why I'll never make a motivational poster, why I sometimes struggle with Typography Tuesday. Because sometimes the things I find deeply moving, deeply life...

14 Things in The Year of the Horse : An Update

Posted on November 11, 2014 | 7:21 pm

Does doing something two years in a row make for a tradition? Yes? In that case - I have a new year tradition of writing a list of things I want to get done in the next twelve months or so, and posting them on the blog. The idea is to start the year off on an optimistic note and focus my mind on the things I really want to achieve.During the year I...

The Search For The Perfect Spring Frock

Posted on November 7, 2014 | 7:10 pm

Whilst I love a good dress all year round, I become especially obsessed with frocks when there's a sweet scent in the air and the chill of night dissipates. Come Spring I dream not of t-shirt dresses or shifts or shirt dresses, but of proper full skirted, fit and flare frocks. Preferably with pretty patterns and cute detailing.Here's a few I'm liking right now:

Five Favourite Snaps From The Trip That Was : People

Posted on October 31, 2014 | 10:37 pm

When we travel, sometimes we pretend we do it for history or art or culture, or simply relaxation. But really - if we're honest - we travel for food. And my goodness we had some good food on our European adventure. The greatest bolognaise of my life in Bologna; the best fluffy yet chewy pizza in the dodgiest of Italian port cities; the herby pot of...

Death by Doxie : Hello! Welcome!

Posted on October 30, 2014 | 7:07 pm

One of the bestest of best things about having a dog is the way they enjoy your company so very much. A dog thinks you're the bee's knees, the ant's pants, the grasshopper's pyjamas. (I made that last one up, could you tell?) They miss you when you're gone, whether you're gone half an hour or half a day. And when you get home they like to tell you...
