Mellow Yellow






 

Greetings from our very own mountain cottage in Katoomba. A few days after my last post we received the call we'd anxiously been awaiting, loaded all our worldly possessions into the car and headed for the hills with a bicycle and ironing board precariously teetering on the roof. The first night we slept on the floor and the first week was spent without a fridge.... As a habitual tea drinker I poured far more chunky milk into my cup than I'd care to recall. Thankfully we are now sleeping soundly and enjoying chilled perishables.

One of the biggest perks of living out here is having a beautiful garden full of flowers, I can't resist pinning them in my bob and filling the house with fragrant blooms. We also have a big ol' lime tree in the back yard and lavender bushes as far as the eye can see, heck its like the Garden of Eden!

It always slips my mind just how long and just how many pennies it takes to set up a house, but slowly enough this funny little cottage is beginning to feel like home. Once we're all settled I'll be sure to share some pictures of our handsome set up, suffice to say the mountain op shops have old fashioned pricing and have treated us mighty kindly.

  1. Such a bucolic, romantic setting! And even though I tend to get picky with the colour yellow, that dress is adorable :)

  2. Yay! I must say I am a bit jealous of your little yellow cottage. I hope you are having a nice time setting up house. You must have a very minimalistic set up, living overseas and all. I know when my partner and I came back from living in Montreal, we had nothing! But it feels so good and then you overcompensate by being a bowerbird and having a full nest!

  4. It's good to see you again:) I've followed all your trips around USA
    and even took some notes for me and my bf's next USA trip:)
    Thanks again for all inspirations!

    I have a bob hair too (but without bangs), and I've been thinking about whether flower crowns look good on short hair too, now I see they look perfect <3
