A spot in the garden

I read this somewhere today, but I can't find it again. So, the credit isn't mine, but the truth it contains is:

"This is surely the most challenging time in our lives; raising babies, pulling purse strings and deciding which dreams are allowed to become reality."

To find calm amongst the chaos is so important. To dream big, but keep my toes in touch with the ground is critical.

In other news, I've been wanting to make better use of my beautiful garden so mum and I made these gorgeous cushions today. Welcome to my new favourite sitting spot.


  1. What a beautiful spot! You could definately bask in the suns rays and enjoy a cup of coffee or a wine :)

    The material is gorgeous!

    1. Wine all the way for me Sophie! And yes, the fabric was a find! It's solar fabric, so coated and somewhat weather-proof. I can't say the same for the inserts, of course, so I'll be bringing them inside each night.

  2. Great words. I could imagine sitting under those palm trees in that lovely spot. Elaina xo

    1. Aren't they just. Never a truer word spoken, even. It's a privilege to have such a pretty garden; we are very lucky. I just wish I could grow things. I'd love a garden full of blooming hydrangeas and other such things. Blackest thumb this side of the ditch.


Thank you for posting! You've just made my day :)
