around home

  1. Playing around with a little Amy Butler and Liberty prints
  2. Fabric no-sewing-involved covered books (top is Amy Butler, bottom two op-shopped)
  3. Market goods - and now I'm quite keen to try my hand at sweet chilli sauce. The homemade version is incomparable. Sooo good!
  4. Market tea and herbs
  5. Out of the linen cupboard
  6. Picture hijacking...
  7. Bread rising
  8. New knitting
  9. Hijacked again!
  10. Finding old things in stored boxes... I really must sort through those boxes some day.

I'm thinking that some of my favourite photos may not be the clearest, in fact some are quite blurry. But it's the ones that capture the spirit of the moment that make me smile.

Do you keep your blurry photos?

Hoping you have a lovely weekend.


  1. I think all the photos are lovely, especially the top one, very bright and happy.
    Yes, I just took about a dozen blurry photos and I love every one of them!

  2. I was looking at your photos thinking hmm some of her photos are slightly blurred but still look really good, maybe i should use more of mine. Then i got to the bottom and read your comment lol. I will be looking at my photos in a better light now too

  10. The notebooks look lovely and that fish eiderdown is so pretty. And blurry photos- I posted one for Liongirls birthday as it so captured her joy, excitement and clapping that none of the pure clear photos had.
