I thought I’d spend the afternoon doing a bit of online window shopping and, as usual ended up looking at mostly jewellery pages again! I’m loving to see so much turquoise about but I have to say I think my favourite here would be that feather choker – would be so pretty under a collared shirt :)
Hi everyone! I’m back again after my Christmas break – It ended up being a bit of a longer break than I expected but it has been nice and restful and I now feel inspired and ready to get back blogging. I thought I’d share a bit of a colourful summery post today as autumn is beginning to close in on us now – these are some mini floral arrangements I’ve done over the past few weeks using flowers from my garden. I don’t usually have a very large range of flowers to choose from where I live but I love being creative with them none the less and coming up with a different arrangement every week or so. I think smaller arrangements are so adorable too and its’ so fun to scatter them in different locations around the house. As you will see, I love including all sorts of flowers and leaves, such as those found in the veggie patch, herb garden or also amongst all the weeds!
Snapdragons, Pink Cornflower, Alyssum and Fern
Floating Borage Flowers
Rose, Oregano and Pineapple Sage Leaves
Jasmine, Petunia, Geraniums (Pink, Coral and Red), Nasturtium, and unknown orange flower buds. A Floating white rose in the background.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season – wow that feels like so long ago now and strange to say that! Do you like making mini flower arrangements like these too? If you do I’d love to hear about them!
I feel I’ve left it a bit late to start putting together some shopping gift guides so instead I thought I’d feature some DIY’s I’ve done over the past year or so that would also be great Christmas gifts. These should all be really quick and simple to make too!
I’ve been trying to think up some good, summery Christmas salad ideas and one of the first thoughts that came to mind a was Caprese salad. This salad basically consists of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and olive oil – perfect Christmas colours and it always feels like such a treat too! Even though the roast capsicum is not an authentic ingredient, I thought it would be fun to make some little red stars from it in order to add even more festivity to the dish! (as it’s a bit tricky to make these from tomato)
