these days. . .

it's all wet & wintry around here.
good weather for rugging up at home.
our little town is packed full of holiday makers,
so we've been avoiding it at all costs.

there's been a lot of cooking, sewing & playing.
we've also been keeping busy up at the block.
our wonderful family helped us to plant 100 trees
and build a fancy house for my chooks.

this week the builders start work on our new house.
we're busy sourcing bits and pieces from here and there.
trying to make sure the new place
has plenty of rustic charm & soul.

hope you are enjoying your holidays too

  1. Can't wait to see that fancy house, yours & the chooks! x

  2. Sounds so lovely. It's my dream to build a new house incorporating plenty of salvaged and recycled materials. Can't wait to hear about the progress. the chooks are pleased with their new pad :)

  3. Oh so exciting! A hundred trees to watch them grow. Your dreams are coming true.

  4. Sounds like exciting times ahead :)

    Are they fejoia's in the bottom pic? They grow in abundance in Nz but we have not seen them here in Australia and friends I have asked have never heard of them before.

  5. Oh my goodness, we cut our fejoias the other way. they look so different like that. I almost didn't know what they were.
    Sounds like a great weekend. We escaped the holiday makers and hid out at home too.

  6. Your posts always put a smile on my face!!! XO!

  7. Sounds like there's a whole lot of good in your life right now x

  8. Oh, how exciting to have the builders getting to work. All the best for a smooth run of it. Can't wait to see the house take shape.


  9. I have a sneaking suspicion the new place will have oodles of rustic charm and soul... how exciting.
    grow well 100 trees, grow well!
