hello + ten on ten

Gosh, it's been a while since I've been here. Life has been busy, which sounds completely lame but really just means stopping in here hasn't been high on my priority list. I want to be back though, but the blogging world feels like a different place than it was a few years ago, do I still fit in? I want to record more and share snippets of our days with you, I'm just not sure in what capacity and even if I need to get myself some new digs or something, who knows? Anyhow, I'm here. I dusted off the camera and snapped a day for ten on ten, seemed like a good place to start.

Gratitude for the simplest moments of our day captured, you can join here

Thanks to those of you that continue to visit here, I hope your days are joyous. xx

these days

These days, things have been pretty relaxed and slow here. We eat, rest, take walks, watch movies, play with newly gifted toys and gadgets, take the odd outing and then rest some more. It's fairly safe to say we're loving school hoildays.

I'm excited the year ahead, although I'm not sure what it will bring for us.

Happy new year to you and thanks for stopping by this little space of mine. xx

round here

This post could also have been titled ten on ten, but I'm not going to lie these were taken over the span of the week.

Round here days are busy and filled with general end of year crazy, you know what I'm talking about. Christmas is creeping in to our home, the kids decorated our tree and are making cards to send off to distant family and friends. The sun is shining so we're spending more time outside in the garden, plus we've got a fence now which makes it even better (that's a whole other story). I'm making lists, planning and shopping. The kids are exhausted but aren't sleeping well, their little minds are in overdrive with all the activities and festivity. We've still got one week of school left, so we're scheduling down time in between the chaos and counting down to the big day.

Are your days hectic too?
What's on your to-do list?

christmas decorating / with target


I like to set a really special table at Christmas so I couldn't resist when Target asked me to create a festive tablescape. The home wares range is brimming with delightfully festive pieces and the Curtis Stone collection hit the mark with style and quality, I couldn't not have those glasses. The Colin and Friends Christmas range - including those cute little bowl/containers also adds an Australian edge the kids will just love. Oh and how can I forget to mention the sweet deer? (available in-store)

Christmas decorating is sorted this year with Targets wide range of tableware, decorations and accessories bound to suit any taste. I love the textured white ceramics paired with touches of red and luxurious gold and glitter accents, can one ever have enough glitter?

Do you set a special Christmas table? Do you like to stick to a theme?
