Happy Friday!

As we are about to enter a time of celebrating peace and goodwill I thought I'd share this
really beautifully made message for equality and anti-discrimination from getup australia

travelling via books and vintage maps

This little reading corner will have to be disrupted soon to make way for the Christmas Tree 
which will go up in about a week - ahh! 
The rocking chair was passed down from my mother or was it nan? 
I fed and rocked my two baby boys on it. 
The lovely map table was a derelict piece of junk on the side of the road a couple of months ago 
with a crumbling chipboard top. I really loved the cane frame and the little rusty castors for shoes and wonder what it was used for in it's past life. I tossed the remnants of the top and passed it on to my dad as a project to work on with my boys {I think Dad did most of the work!}. 
Dad is my Go To Guy when I need help with anything serious although, especially being a single parent I feel pretty good at doing quite a few things on my own {and by that I mean my 14 yr old helps me quite a bit, strong points being anything electric or digital or from ikea}. After building a new table top he suggested decoupaging the surface with old maps and I think it now looks marvellous!
So between my maps infront of me and my bookcase behind me, I can go anywhere! 
I am thinking of painting the cane white - thoughts?

icy poles!

This weather is too hot already and there are some tempers in our house that need cooling down!
I have found an inexhaustible source of inspiration on pinterest
Some healthy, some not healthy, some for kids and some for adults only. We are making vanilla yogurt with fresh blue berries tonight, I will let you know how they turn out. 

{lots more delicious looking poptails here ➡ endless poptails from endless simmer such as 
  bloody mary, white sangria and bourbon butterscotch latte just to get you started}
oh my goodness they all look marvellous... I guess you could very easily make kid friendly 
versions by omitting the alcohol.

and finally...

do you have a favourite concoction for me to try?

The ending just kills me...

a fern in a cup

Susan suggested a bit of tarzan's grip so I got some and fixed it and it worked.
It now has a pretty fern in it and everyone's happy ~ Happy Friday!

I think they may be gone soon, the storms will blow the blossoms away. 
As I took these photos I could see them gently falling. There was also a beautiful soft scent and a lot of bees, possibly humming but I can't remember.
