posieshoots While I can't hold back the tide on this school year commencing, I'm taking a break from social media to prepare. I have teen twinnies away on an interstate athletics camp, dozens of chicks hatching, experimenting with homemade wild yeast, college orientation, visiting family & my 40th birthday to celebrate (finally!!) All the best to those experiencing new beginnings . . . pre-primary-highschool & all the wonderful friendships with like minded families you'll discover; a change in career path & creative pursuits; or simply adding homegrown adventures to your skill set, like making sourdough or perfecting the green smoothie . . . enjoy!! I'll see you soon . . . in my forties!! #hello40 #beach #surf #sun #sand #sapphirecoast #southcoastnsw #summer #schoolholidays #newbeginnings #sogrownup #nothavingaparty #undistracted #instabreak #illbeback 4d

posieshoots It's officially the back-to-school countdown, with seven days left. Eeep, I still have a Summer to-do-list!! I've hemmed & pressed uniforms, one child needs new shoes & a blazer, it's haircut & dentist appointments times four + me!! A couple of cupboards to go in my annual psycho clean & declutter . . . I need a cup of tea first & to play with my dried flower bounty - I'm thinking a garland of mini bouquets, over my new study nook?? Thanks @moxomandwhitney inspirational as always!! #driedflowers #linen #florist #native #flora #australian #wildflowers #schoolholidays #backtoschool 5d
  •   k.a.r.e.n.s.w.a.n Thank you Jennie. Alex has been at Orana since he was 2.5 years and it sings to my soul. Let's see how I feel about it after a term of taxi'ing him the hour round trip! I'll email you and look forward to catching up! 5d
  •   nedlolasmum One more day and eldest off to high school @posieshoots Jennie - eeeekkkkk 5d
  •   indigobluestudio Counting down for sure haha... Where did the days go? @posieshoots You've reminded me I forgot the dentist! 5d
  •   vgc16 Loving this last week of holidays. After having 4 in the same school, 2 are now finished and the other 2 are off to new schools. Big changes, but so exciting. 5d
  •   homelyoneamanda One week left here too! 5d
  •   homelyoneamanda Enjoy the last week at home with four, hope it's lovely and restful amongst the getting ready for next week. I'm in the middle of a decluttering mission too 5d
  •   posieshoots @homelyoneamanda actually I have two heading off for an interstate athletics camp, so it's going to be very quiet. @vgc16 oh wow, big changes for you. I had all 4 at the same primary school for 2 years, that was so easy. I assumed this year my 3 girls would be at the same ladies college, but my eldest was adamant about changing for year 11. Oh well, her brother was going to that school next year anyway, then I'll be back to 2 school again. Oh but the fees!! Ouch. @indigobluestudio I have my very own dentist appointment too, on my 40th birthday. I know how to party!! @nedlolasmum it's so exciting. Good luck. The main thing I noticed about high school was that the mums & dads all sit in their car & don't socialise like the primary school gate. So glad my children play a bunch of sports, so I met lots of parents that way. @k.a.r.e.n.s.w.a.n oh yes, it's a long school run, even in our traffic manageable city. I figure, it's a great time to corner your children & talk to them. 5d
  •   vgc16 Oh the fees! Even though we have different schools for the first time ever, they will just be across the road from each other. Imagine all the fun things we will spend that money on when school is over. 4d

posieshoots Spent the afternoon making roast pork ravioli, with Italian cooking utensils, gifted by @emikodavies reigniting my pasta making passion. Some of these pieces are props from her upcoming Florentine cook book!! It was a long, hot preparation, with fruit & tea for sustenance. I confess, I couldn't get the pasta thin enough with the rolling pin, so through the KitchenAid pasta maker it went. Perfecto. An easy, relaxed & enjoyable family Friday dinner in the lounge. #italian #cooking #homemade #handmade #homegrown #ravioli #roastpork #araucana #blueeggs #freshproduce #newtoys My family thanks you Emiko!! I love that measuring cup too, easy way to scoop 100gm of OO flour!! #fullbellies 1w
  •   fizzybees Deep sigh 1w
  •   emikodavies @posieshoots the good thing about even fresh handmade pasta is that it is still easy to dry out and use later! And as my Tuscan mother in law would say, always better to have too much food than too little! ;) 1w
  •   emikodavies @linda_uzu it's going to be very traditional Florentine recipes so not exactly GF unfortunately, but some are! :) 1w
  •   posieshoots @emikodavies absolutely. I just pop extra in an airtight lunch box after drying it on the rack. We made so many ravioli, we knew we had plenty, so the last three pasta sheets which went through the pasta maker could go in to a different meal. The KitchenAid fettuccine slicer attachment is worth its weight in gold!! Otherwise I let the children roll cut if by hand for a very organic looking dinner!! 1w

My second eldest brother's wife, daughter & her boyfriend!! My niece is their baby, fourth child & coming here to Uni almost 1000km from home, straight out of boarding school. Yay.

  •   designdevotee Aww - how adorable! 1w
  •   posieshoots @designdevotee they're so noisey, I just love their chirps. Very quiet today. @globule22 heart melting. @shewhomustbeobeyed1 fluffy balls of love. @emikodavies it's honestly so exciting & you watch them develop personalities. Very easy to give them away to a beautiful family. @moriartyandco I just realised I always seem to plan a hatch during school holidays. The children adore it. I'm doing research into 'time of year' & seasonal effects on egg size & age, as 'first lay through Winter' is really important. Oh the science!! 1w
  •   posieshoots @karyn_2315 fluffy goodness. @thatsabitnifty anytime you fancy being a feather mama, let me know. @canberrabec you too, I have a big batch of blue egg laying Araucanas hatching in 15 days. Sweet little pets for Miss T!! @baamekniits trying not to get addicted to this, gosh it's a gorgeous experience!! @myvintagehome24 thanks Susan!! 1w
  •   canberrabec Oooh thanks! How fabulous are you??!! I need to head out to the Green Shed or something today to look for some suitable housing .... Anything specific I should look for? 1w
  •   posieshoots @the_woolen_moon it's so cute Thea!! @netherleighblog oh Kate, it's the sweetest experience. Very quiet today, a couple more are hatching tomorrow then the mother load in 15 days. It's going to be very noisey. @nefotlak if you rub their neck & belly they fall asleep in your hands. Oh it's so so so sweet. 1w
  •   posieshoots @canberrabec honestly, with the sparrows around here, metal is best. They bring mites which live in the wood. Doesn't have to be cage like, just water & draft proof. You can create a cage like run with extra cheap wire, for safety & space, or if your fences are high & secure, let them free range with an open hutch box. That's what we do, with 4 bunnies & 3 ducks too (here at the house, completely different on the farm, their coop is enormous!!) we haven't had a fox issue, however, we have a huge German Shepherd on guard. 1w

posieshoots Have you ever made a comment about something . . . say, relevant & in context to a French farmhouse kitchen "I love the idea of hanging pots & pans" . . . decades later, your normally deaf-to-decorating-ideas husband remembers & assumes you'll be suspending overhead ladders in your own kitchen one day?? My husband actually, honestly fears this-is-what-I-meant!! Of course I adore the ceiling awesomeness @moxomandwhitney florist, however, my husband can take a deep breath on my homestead decorating aspirations. #decorating #ladder #awesome #iwish #florist #clever #design #style #innovative #inspiration 2w
  •   linda_uzu True. Luckily Nick and I have very similar taste. We'd both happily live in a house with nothing in it, but the reality of life doesn't work that way! We do minimalism as best we can with toddlers (and a half built house)! 2w
  •   awhitefarm I think my husb lives in constant fear 2w
  •   linda_uzu I just read your comment above, we have no wall mounted cabinets, big drawers and a walk in larder and it's amazing. Good planning!!! 2w
  •   katherinetheoldboathouse He's such a tease mind you this could work in the old shearing shed xx dying to see more photos !! 2w
  •   trickygirl I love the look but practically speaking all I can think of is cobwebs and dust. Open shelving too- did that in my office and so wish it was all doors. All sealed again the cobwebs and dust that plague me. 2w

posieshoots Our new study nook . . . jammed between the hallway entrance & kitchen fridge . . . I'm a beggar not a chooser!! I don't post interior shots of our house, as it's just another beige, too-small-for-our-family Army rental which will never feel like 'home' . . . it kills the colour-loving-designer in me, especially knowing how amazing the homestead we are building will be. Anyway, said homestead will have a similar size study nook, so I'm practising how this space works. I'm enjoying having two chairs to sling my handbag, scarves & camera on, easy big-screen-computer-access for quick research on new cooking ideas & as a mother-of-many, I'm central to all the goings on, like homework. I've lit a candle, dinner is prepared & I'm paying bills (aka doing on line shopping!!) @moxomandwhitney loving the moose terrarium; @kikkik_loves storage boxes for all my adorable stationery clutter; @typoshop #typolightbox for inspirational messages to my dodgy NBN connectivity. #studynook #deskmakeover #fresh #decorating #terrarium #happy #typoshop #kikkik #countryroadstyle #ineedmoreplants #naturallight #keepingitreal #howwereallylive #whiteboardpatientlywaitsforschooltoresume 2w
  •   e_a_munro Well I guess it will mean that your country "tin shed" will be even more special!! 2w
  •   posieshoots @designedtoat thanks Terese, is all goes well, we might have a new home by the end of the year. @fuscia small can be cosy & fun, four children aged 11-16 need a little more space. I'm always redecorating to accommodate the changes & stages. @mettemaia oh yes, we will have earned our beautiful homestead. You're so lucky to be in your own home so young. We didn't want to stop & buy until we knew where we would settle. Feels good. @bodyfabulouspregnancyfitness thanks Dahlas, it will be spacious to say the least!! The architect keeps asking 'what will go here' & I reply 'nothing, it's a void, I want empty spaces'. Ahhh, to breathe. Or you know, do yoga!! 2w
  •   posieshoots @e_a_munro it's amazing how little furniture you actually need & the cheap IKEA basics can really last (so long as you don't have to dismantle them & transfer the pieces 5000km!!) as some shelving units have survived for ages, bunk beds - not so much. Otherwise, we literally just have beds, desks & bedside tables. I do fancy a home with the odd console table & art on the walls. It will happen, I'm very patient. @gentlefolk rental properties are so blah with sensible carpet & ugly tiles. I cannot wait until we have a house of polished concrete floors, dreamy. @myvintagehome24 hey Susan, years ago from TYPO. This was $1 as there is a small chip in the wood. @jembelina the clock just broke, I'll need to replace the working parts, worth it considering the purchase price!! 2w
  •   posieshoots @sarijanehomeaccents you wouldn't believe how often the NBN breaks down. Argh. @nefotlak thanks Cheryl, sharing my desk space with my year 6 buddy & then we are done with primary school. He needs my computer for assignments so this is much more convenient. @sarahshanahan_lifestyle this is the way into the house, always happy to sling my bag!! You'd be so proud of my organisation. @katy_potaty thank you, I've really enjoyed using this space today, there are small pockets of my style in this extremely bland house. Light boxes rock full stop. @awhitefarm giggles. 2w

  •   posieshoots @minioswardrobe hello, this is the smaller original A4 size. Does the job!! I also bought extra letter packs (gold & pink). Don't hate me, I picked up this one from their outlet for $1 as it missing the letter C from the pack. Seriously lucky!! Made paying full price for the second one pretty easy. 1d

posieshoots Finally taking the over-the-dining-table decorations down . . . from the girls' tropical 13th birthday party . . . held back in November. They just carried over into the Summer festive season so perfectly. I'm going to reuse some lanterns for my desk-nook-revamp, my husband has requested I cool it with the tissue fruit though. #tropical #lantern #decorations #colour #pineapple #strawberry #typoshop #party #summer #festive 2w
  •   misssewnso Soooo Summer Festive!!! Three months at least you'd want to eat under these!! 2w
  •   katherinetheoldboathouse Ha last bit is funny xxx 2w
  •   posieshoots @misssewnso I know. So happy & festive. They were starting to droop & donk my husband on the head. Me, I'm short & was happy to let they stay up!! @carobachi they're a mix of TYPO lanterns & tissues fruit, probably from Lark. @creative_chicky so my kind of colours!! I want to make a mega chandelier from them for the shearing shed studio!! @myvintagehome24 would you believe the lanterns were mainly from the 'throw out' table at TYPO, $1 for ten, sometimes the fairy lights were broken or a lantern was missing. Guess what, combine 2 x $1 'damaged stock' & you'd have a full set, instead of paying $20!! So I bought up gazillions of sets. They don't do the $1 table anymore. Sob. @nedlolasmum oh Alison, let's console each other, we married tissue fruit non-believers!! @katherinetheoldboathouse at least he's honest!! 2w
  •   posie60 V cute! 2w
  •   nedlolasmum Ah Jennie, I don't trust the paper fruit haters @posieshoots 2w
  •   somewhereonmain I bought a strand of these for the final camp out bday party that will be in June (first two daughters had theirs this fall - you'd have to scroll way back to see the photos - so so much fun!). I can't wait to use them but with only one strand I'm not sure what I'll do with them. 2w
  •   somewhereonmain I love the idea if using them inside! 2w
  •   posieshoots @nedlolasmum ha. @somewhereonmain they look so pretty en masse. They have fairy lights to go inside, but most of these were off the $1 table with broken lights, so I play with the paper lanterns on their own. @posie60 certainly very colourful Jodie!! 2w
