loving….words and pictures

sydney writers festival

Head On


“Often life’s pleasures pass us by simply because we don’t take a moment to focus on them… Make a point of noticing everyday something that uplifts your spirit or tickles your heart… Stop to breathe in the joy of this moment and then tell someone about it. Share your joy and revel in it. When your joy is savoured, and then shared, it is magnified…” ROBIN GRILLE

Sydney Writers Festival I adore you. You are nothing but inspiring and on weekends like this I love every. single. inch, of this fair city. Truly inspired…loving that.

Head On photographic exhibition…so many stunning pictures. So many, talented people out there wielding a camera.… loved every single one of them.

Watching a little blanket grow. It started with some really unlikely colours, using what I had on hand and not a hint of an idea or plan, but I think (with fingers and toes crossed) it’s coming together, (in a rustic mixy matchy kind of way)….and I’m loving that.

Stories of tea. Getting to read all your beautiful stories of tea. I was incredibly touched that so many of you took the time to share a tea story with me. There were so many lovely stories I decided to change it to three winners.

Amber @Quinces and Cumquats


Rose @Greening the Rose

Thank you to everyone, I wish I could have given you all some tea.

What are some of those moments that have tickled your heart lately?

  1. I had to and did ‘make do’ as far as the Sydney Writers Festival was concerned with the hour delegated to ‘Q & A’ on ABC – something is better than nothing 🙂 ! Livid, vivid arguments and so much fun to mull over 🙂 !


  2. Love the crochet rug Brydie, I have them scattered around the bedrooms and they are all so individual and cosy x


  3. Hi Brydie!
    Your crocheted granny square blanket is so bright and happy- I love all the colors and variations of pattern. I think you have an artist’s soul- it just keeps coming out in all that you do! Lovely.
