Rustic Orchids

Have been playing around with artificial orchids today . We like to keep artificial arrangements natural looking and keep them seasonal . Winter orchids with green berries , moss , ranunculus & green apples in a rusty urn has a rustic charm .

Birthday Treat

Have had the school holidays off with the kids which has been lots of fun , sometimes very busy and some days doing nothing but slouching in PJs !

Did have a birthday treat with Breakfast out the girls which ended around lunchtime !

Hubby had taken the afternoon off and so we headed to Little & Friday for coffee and cake .

Box of cakes

Now have my very own copy of the Little & Friday cookbook . My favourite is Lemon & Coconut cake .

Winter Orchids

I like that we have 4 seasons in N.Z , and while we have just entered winter each season brings its own pleasures . For me that means Orchids will be coming through the market which I love working with . Such long-lasting and value for money .

It’s winter

Winter colour

First day of winter today & while it would have been nice to stay in bed a littler longer this morning , the crisp but bright day was a good start to the winter season . on my walk around the block this morning I did enjoy seeing the fabulous colours in the native bush and bare branches that nature offers this time of the year.
With the long weekend ahead it is a good excuse to light the fire and eat and drink my way through the weekend !
