Inspiration….

If you feel like an inspiring read and beautiful photos of “where creative people live, work and play”, Spaces by Frankie Magazine is fantastic!

Afternoon Tea by Frankie Magazine has also been inspiring some baked treats in our home!

Yum!

These new tunes have also been inspiring some kitchen dance moves:) A great album!

A spot of nesting…

Hmmm…the other morning the overwhelming need to sew, bake, clean and reorganise cupboards overtook me :))
Needless to say, the nesting instinct gets alot done in a short amount of time! I made Noah a new pyjama bag – I love the cute camping material!

Of course, new shorts were needed and cot sheets too – so I whipped some up:)

…and yes more baking… :))

Also enjoying…

…the colour GREEN…
Such a beautiful change from the brown of years past – thanks to all the rain the heavens have been showering our corner of the world with!

…ICE-CREAM…

…RESTING…

…and looking forward to being able to travel to the beach again soon and have a dip once bubs is born!!

P.S – Thanks to Hyde Park, London for the sweet GREEN photo and the ice-cream chair, Musee D’Orsay, Paris for the snap of Van Gogh’s work and the amazing Cinque Terre, Italy for giving us a wonderful time at the beach!

The week that is…

Its 2011 – no denying it and along with a new year, comes a new haircut or two….
I endeavoured to cut Noah’s hair yesterday in very hot, steamy weather and unfortunately I did a rather nasty looking haircut on Noah due to much squirming and squealing and hair sticking to Noah’s very sweaty body! So haircut round number two was when Dan got home from work: a daddy cut, in the airconditioning with a raincoat on resulted in a great looking “do” for the youngest member of the family! I have officially handed over haircutting duties to Dan!

Beautiful blooms are adorning our table….

…from my very thoughtful husband :)

….this week (maybe) our little trio will become a quartet!

A wise owl….39weeks and we are almost there!

A wise old owl with sage advice says…

…keep watching and praying and enjoying the HOT weather…
…seeing your ankles disappear into cankles :)…

…your 39 weeks old little bubba…
…we can’t wait to meet you…
“Daddy, who makes tummy’s go flat once the baby comes out of mummy’s tummy??” asked Noah.

…we will keep trusting, surrendering and praising you amazing God for your goodness to our family…

Around here….

A sneaky surprise birthday gathering for Dan! Noah and I enjoyed decorating the house for the arrival home of Dan from Tasmania!

Thankyou Donna Hay magazine for some cake decorating ideas!

Noah (and Dan&I) are eagerly anticipating Christmas and…

celebrating Jesus – the gift of grace to all who will recieve Him.

We are also can’t wait to hold our newest member of our family – only 3 weeks to go :))

For this child I prayed; and the Lord has given me my petition that I asked of Him.
1 Samuel 1: 27
