Falling for you

Lately Oli and I have become quite fond of pulling on our hiking boots and taking an afternoon stroll around the mountains. There are so many incredible walking trails and we intend on seeing each and every one of them. I love how each day the mountains look entirely different to the day before, my favourite days are the misty moody ones when everything looks mysterious and eerie. You can see Leura Cascades in some of these photos, one day soon we're going to fill our rucksacks full of snacks and hike all the way down to the bottom of the falls.

I had to giggle when I saw the seventh photograph, if you look closely you'll spy a tiny fly perched on my back. Its strange, after being overseas for a year I thought the presence of these tiny winged critters would serve as a constant annoyance upon our return. However, they are so ingrained in the Australian way of life that I hardly notice them, I simply issue a quick Aussie Salute and get on with my day.

Our little mountain cottage is coming along nicely. This week we not only acquired a kettle, two handsome houseplants and enough earthenware to last a lifetime, but perhaps the most exciting addition for me, a brand new industrial sewing machine. The hardest part of living on the road had to be the inability to whip up a frock whenever I felt the desire, I am so excited to get back into the swing of things. In the coming weeks I'll be reopening my etsy shop and sharing some brand new designs with you! 


  1. I can't wait to see your new designs! Yay!

    And your cottage must be so relaxing near the all nature; mountain, waterfall, animals...What a good luck for you guys :)

  2. Beautiful scenery! I didn't notice the fly, so I had to go back and look. He's wanted his 15 seconds of fame :P

  3. Oh sweetie, I'm so happy for you and Oli, you are living in such a dream place and I can totally see the relieved look in your face breathing the beauty of nature after so many months spent in chaotic New York :) Do expect an italian friend with backpack knocking at your cottage door sooner or later ;)
    Well done on the sewing machine, I've been missing your beautiful creations!!

  4. Aaah such idyllic surroundings, you look stunning,those boots are insane I want a pair! Very excited to see your new designs! xxx

  5. Hooray! So excited to see your new designs, and so jealous of your hike times!! xx

  6. You live in such a beautiful place, these photos look like something out of a dream. That's fantastic you got a new sewing machine! I can't wait to see your new designs. <3

  7. I could not believe it. Just by looking at these photos I could tell that it was Leura. It really is such a beautiful place. I even felt that the look out at Leura was even more beautiful and dreamy than that of the Three Sisters! It is a very lovely town too. One of the most pleasant I've ever been to. I've bought quite a few things from a few of the vintage stores there. I'd also like to take this opportunity to say how wonderful I think your style is, and it suits you to a T.

  8. Beautiful pictures, perfect haircut.

  9. It appears no a pair of will be at any time a similar. Maybe no a pair of photography lovers watch the Αθήνα φωτογράφος γάμου internet site inside exactly the same way.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, I just love hearing from you x
