Checkin' Out

Hello and apologies to all my followers and passerbys for my slack posting record lately.

I have been, and am currently dealing with some personal stuff from the past and present and feeling like I should be updating my blog just adds to my stress. And I don't want to say "look at these pretty banners I made" etc. and pretend everything's hunky-dory. That sounds very alarming but it's not, so don't worry.

I will be back and in the meantime, here's a picture of Minni to make up for all that doom and gloom.


  1. Blogs definitely can be stressors! Take it easy and take care of yourself!!

  2. Hi Esther, you must only blog when you WANT to, yuk otherwise it is just another chore!
    See you when you get back,we will all still be here,

  3. Hoping all is well. Please take all the time you need, we'll wait patiently. :-)

  4. you have a lovely blog and a VERY cute cat.

  5. Just found your blog and I see that you like the same as me....cottage,pinks,blues,spots and reds!
    Look forward to reading more when you are ready to post again.



Comments make me happy. Spread the love.

Get to know me

  • I love the smell of cinnamon and vanilla.
  • My favourite flowers are daisies.
  • My favourite trees are pine trees.
  • I always like to have the bickie jar full and a cake on the cake stand. I know...not that healthy, but so good to look at.
  • Autumn is my favourite month, although I do wish we had more of a change of colours up here in Queensland.
  • I love Anne of Green Gables and Laura Ingalls Wilder. They started my love affair with "old-fashioned" stuff.
  • I'm a boots and jeans kind of girl, but also love vintage skirts and dresses.
  • I like sewing and am in love with quilts at the moment.
  • I love reading. (I have a weakness for archeological thrillers and historical romances, but not Mills and Boon-type ones.)
  • I love old houses with character. No new estate houses for me. (Sorry Rosie.)
  • I love vintage/cottage/farmhouse decorating and pretty pinks and blues, with a splash of red for colour.
  • Polka dots can make me sigh with delight.
  • I have 4 chooks. They are MY pets. Another tick on my dream-come-true chart.
  • I don't eat dessert much any more. I'm not dieting, I just don't want it. (Does that mean I'm growing up if I say no to an icecream cone?)
  • I'll still always say yes to chocolate though!
  • I like to sit on the front stairs in the sun, to drink my morning cup of tea, while I contemplate what to do in the garden.
  • I've got the gardening bug again recently. It comes and goes with the weather. I'm envisioning cottage flowers in pink, blue and white to go with my green picket fence.
