petraholain Holidays, week 1. At home. Nothing in the calendar, but things are getting done. Slowly, every day, bit by bit. Productive, but with massive sleep-ins, long coffees and light, summer holiday reading. Love holidays. 2mon
  •   petraholain Oh really? I didn't get a plastic sleeve, but I bought salt and pepper grinders as well (that was the main purchase!) and got a lovely little candle free with it. And delivery was super fast so agree with Ellie, great service @neutralinstinct @petalplum @sangthebird (just noticed I forgot to tag you on my previous comment Leah, thanks Ellie! ) 1mon
  •   petalplum I think maybe the sleeve came because the journal had been returned from a photo shoot..so maybe it was just with it?? 1mon
  •   neutralinstinct Gorgeous photo and thank you for the lovely comments @petraholain & @petalplum 1mon
  •   petalplum @neutralinstinct thanks for your lovely speedy service. Been meaning to snap a shot of your sweet packaging too xx 1mon
  •   petraholain And I've been meaning to thank you for the lovely complimentary candle @neutralinstinct 1mon
  •   neutralinstinct You are such sweethearts @petalplum & @petraholain . I'm so glad you liked the packaging and it was my pleasure to send the candle with your grinders. Xx 1mon

petraholain #widn as asked by @iamannathomas (If you don't know Anna, checkout her feed and the beautiful (frozen & smashed!) flora prints in her online store) Thanks for the tag Anna.. as it is, I have just (and at last!) started my holidays. I was in the last frantic hour of work when your tag came through.. And for the next two weeks I will sleep in, swim (weather permitting), eat out, eat in, have pyjama days with the kids, watch bad TV and read great books. 2mon

petraholain Rescued from my garden yesterday, before the hot northern wind hit.. (for those who don't live in Melbourne, it's been around 40 degrees both today and yesterday with extreme hot wind. Yuk.) 2mon

petraholain Looking back over 2014 once more.. before I embrace the new year. Images chosen for no particular reason.. and while the colour palette of these is on the melancholy side, I am not feeling sad at all, quite the opposite, just attracted to the quieter photos today. (Also, bright colours might hurt my head, price you pay when you go to bed after 3am ) 2mon

petraholain Wishing you all a safe and happy Christmas! . PS: I may have put more brandy into these chocolates then usual! And @fleurbeckwith I love my wooden star! The beautiful texture doesn't show up here, I will take better photo next year as this star will come out each Christmas year after year. Best KK, thank you! 2mon

petraholain Tonight I'm drinking G&T and making my Christmas chocolates. I've been busy and preoccupied with other things, anything but Christmas and didn't even start thinking about buying presents till Tuesday. That's finished now and mostly wrapped and under a tree. I'm cramming it in this year, squeezing what usually absorbs my whole December into one week. So far so good. Tomorrow I will turn my messy house into beautifully clean and tidy, Santa-worthy house before going to a Christmas picnic. Oh and while Christmas shopping, I bought myself (amongst other things) Russh magazine for my favourite part of Christmas, the chill-out part that follows, in case I don't get any good books this year. (There's still time.. hint, hint) 3mon

petraholain As every year, I loved pretty much everything at #TDFopenhouse but I went there with special interest in the gorgeous wall colours.. (Looking for the perfect colour for our bedroom) This is Mirage Blue by @duluxaus and painting by Sarah Kelk. I think they were meant to be together. 3mon
