Finding the balance..


Every day these beautiful horses watch us dropping off our kids from their paddock next to school. They gather together under the chestnut tree and gaze dreamily or slowly munch on grass.


Their stillness is so soothing. Their brown eyes calmly watch the world go by. They remind me to slow down, to breath, to do one thing at a time. To just...be.

After visiting the city last week I was reminded why I am so happy we moved to the country. The busy, busy car dominated city just exhausts me. I really need space, and greenness, and sky. And beautiful horses are a lovely bonus.


Talking of lovely things here is my Avoca opshop blanket. It is so FANTASTIC! It is so big, can you imagine how long it would have taken to make?


Something sweet happened to me a couple of days ago! An award from lovely Floss over at Troc, Broc & Recup. She lives in France with her beautiful family & has a real knack for finding vintage treasures. Her blog is always a treat to visit...pop over and say hello!
I love an award with a cup of tea on it! Might go and put the kettle on.

Ahh..that's better! Nothing like a good cuppa. Time to tootle off now. Rosie & I are going to the park. Before I go here is another horsey friend. (There seems to be a horsey thing going on lately.) On the way back from Ballarat yesterday the girls and I came across this little pony outside a shop in Creswick. How cute!! x

Oh my god that blanket is amazing! I'm in the middle of stitching together my squares at the moment and can't believe how long it is taking. Let's crochet together again soon. X

I'm glad you like the award - you deserve it: this is another lovely post! The horses are so calm, and that blanket is truly amazing. I can tell an 'op shop' is what I call a charity shop, but what does 'op' stand for?
