Throwback Thursday… Peek-a-boo…

I’ve been going through old posts and I just loved this when I came across it. These photos of H are so much fun and so innocent. He was so little…

“H loves playing Peek-a-boo…

He turns nearly everything into a game of peek-a-boo…behing the couch, the ottoman, the kitchen island, the dining room table, a jumper, his bath towel, his washer, his teddy, a book and the list goes on…

I love seeing him so pleased with himself. I have tried to capture it…”

Wasn’t he the cutest? I love the sweet innocence. So playful and happy… such great and special memories…

Playing #7vignettes with Interiors Addict…

This month I completed my second round of #7vignettes run by Interiors Addict on Instagram… It’s a terrific monthly challenge and I’m really enjoying it. There is a daily prompt/theme for the first 7 days of the month… I love seeing them all together as a group at the end of the week.

This is my collection from August… You can see it’s not as cohesive as this month but still a nice collection. I hope to keep getting better and better…

Friday flowers… a little goes a long way…

Last week I posted this photo on Instagram.

Friday Flowers... a little goes a long way - alittlepartoftheworld.

I had a large lot of fresh flowers as our builders were sending a photographer to take some photos of the finished works. 3 years and 3 stages and we’re finally finished! Naturally I wanted the house looking nice but didn’t want o go too crazy with the styling because that’s not what they’re after…

I thought I would share some of the spots they ended up…

Friday Flowers… On a Sunday

What a weekend… openings, birthdays, gardening, colds and IT issues… just to name a few.

I was racing against the clock on Friday and this post just didn’t happen. On Friday night we had a wonderful event… very close friends of ours realised a dream and opened their brewery… It’s called Modus Operandi Brewery and it’s going to be a huge hit. I will write more on this later.

Yesterday was Mr alittlepartoftheworld’s Birthday and we celebrated lunch with his family. It was such a lovely afternoon. H was just so excited… what’s not to love… cake, cousins and lots of playtime. He kept running around and saying best birthday EVER!!!… and it wasn’t even his day! He’s too cute I tell you.

Today we are all feeling very tired and a bit under the weather thanks to the usual winter bug that does its rounds. Today has been filled with gardening and I have a attacked the study with gusto. There always seems to be one room in a home that’s a work in progress. For me it’s the study. It becomes a dumping ground for everything and it’s just too easy to dump things in here and close the door on it… well not any more!!! I have it organised and nice and clean. Helped in huge part by the laundry being finished and I have lots of lovely new storage!! I can’t tell you how excited I get about storage!!

On Friday I made my first attempt to arrange flowers… I usually buy a bunch and plonk it in a vase. Pretty and effective but I wanted to try and get a little creative and do something I hadn’t before. So I bought 3 little bunches and had a go of making little arrangements. I’m quite happy for my first attempt. I know I won’t be giving up my day job any time soon but you’ve got to start somewhere right?!…

3 bunches went soooo far and we have flowers all over the house…

Anyone fighting an awful winter cold?… Jx


Friday Flowers… Yellow and white to brighten up your day…

Friday is here already. I can’t believe it’s come around again so soon. I had every intention of blogging more this week but it’s gotten away from me and the time I have had on the computer I have been working on the new blog layout. You like? Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Anyway… on to making your Friday pretty and happy. The yellow and white of this little bunch that I picked up from Pearson’s Florist during the week is so cheerful and happy and the little green vase it’s in just tops them off don’t you think?

We have a busy weekend ahead filled with kids things… like visiting the aquarium (we are doing it this weekend as opposed to last like I thought) and swimming lessons start for both little ones so it’s go, go, go for us.

I hope you have something nice planned… care to share?…

Whatever you’re doing… have a good one… Jx










Instagram… the week that was #1…

I know it’s already Tuesday and I’m a bit slow on the uptake but I wanted to share with you some of my photos from last week on Instagram. There are such great and challenging communities on there… just to name a few… @fatmumslim and her Photo a Day project – #fmsphotoaday, @foxinflats and her monthly style challenge #foxinflatsstyledare and thirdly, @its_my_week where every week it’s a different prompt and last week was #myweekofnature and this week it’s #myweekofhome. Jump online and check it out. I am loving it more and more and finding new communities all the time. I will share more on these in the future…

Here is a collage of some my photos from last week – @alittlepartoftheworld

I hope you have a great weekend… we have very little planned which is always nice. Maybe a trip to see the Octonauts which will send H into overdrive!! stay tuned!!

Take a moment to stop and smell the roses… Jx








Perfume and Flowers…

I’m currently working my way through an on line photography course. I have just submitted assignment two and was really happy with my feedback and results…

I thought I would share some of the photos I took for it. I only had to submit one but I really enjoyed taking the photos…

Happy Friday all. Have a great weekend.

Throw back Thursday…

I first posted these photos back in August 2012 – Flowers and Haircuts on a Friday. They make me feel so warm and sunny I wanted to share them again. Aren’t they gorgeous?…
I just love having fresh flowers in the house…
