Garlands & Clouds




I love styling and photographing the beautiful handmade delights people send me - they are always more beautiful than I could imagine which makes them so hard to part with. These images were taken for So Fo Fo (pic 1,2,4) and Blue Daisy Wares (pic 2).

My First Mother's Day


  


I was so excited about Mother's Day. It felt like Christmas used to feel when like when I was little.  I bought myself a mug 'from' Piper. I can't wait for her little handmade Mother's Day stall purchases in year to come. On Sunday, Mr bought me a large coffee and a gorgeous bunch of blooms. I made a mini layer cake with  berries from the bunch.

Closer to Nature GIVEAWAY




Usually I find out useful things exist once I no longer require them, but the Perfect Prep machine came into my life at exactly the right time.  So easy and quick to use - it makes a bottle in less than 2 minutes at the perfect temperature and water level.  With the little miss waking at night due to her teething and wanting a bottle in an instant, so pressing a button and having a bottle done in  no time has been fabulous.  We used to have boiled cooled water in the fridge and then have to wait for what seemed forever for the kettle to boil, then we would tip in and out cool and warm water until we reached the about the right temp and water level, then test it and ask each other, "is it warm enough?" "should we put it in the bottle warmer?" "Do you think its too hot?" "Should we run it under cold water?" Not what you want to be doing at 3am.  No need any more. Oh, and it filters the water too!

No it's your turn to win your very own perfect prepmachine.

Just leave a comment below about what appeals most about the perfect prep™ machine and "like" facebook.com.au/closertonaturebaby

A  winner will be announced 15 June.

Hugh's Little Forest


One of my lovely followers asked me for help with her little boy's room.  He was moving into a big bed and she was thinking she might like 'the woods' theme, but didn't want to the room to be too babyish, too grown up or too obviously themed.  This was the room design board I provided along with lots of gorgeous examples of how to put the room together (with some alternate suggestions for some items) and my styling tips one-pager of things to keep in mind when pulling it all together.
