Home 338: Welcome-  Tasmania

Comfort

Image
It is getting chilly here in the Southern States.  We are embracing the Slow cooker, collecting kindling for our fire and hiding away indoors in Ugg boots and warm woollen jumpers.
I’m not a lover of winter, in fact I really struggle with it and I have a sense we are in for a long one this year.  Our little home the past few days has slowly transformed itself into a Chinese laundry while the girls bedrooms have been converted into indoor cubby houses. 
Are you embracing the change of season?  How do you find comfort from the cold and I am curious….what is the etiquette on wearing your slippers out in public?  I confess to wearing my Uggies everywhere when it is freezing!
Little home 159 comfort was released by Kate in Tasmania.  This is Kate’s third home.  Pop back and take a peek at her earlier two  Vitality and Snug.  Thank you Kate we adore your support and love that these homes give us a peek at beautiful Tasmania and the happiness that goes on in your little home.

Hi Kellie
Comfort for me is the beach and the sea and nothing can lift my day like a ride along the coast on my mountain bike.

I have found this lovely sheltered seat which faces the bass straight at the mouth of the Emu River in Burnie.  I’ve taken to riding there and just spending some time being in the moment or writing in my journal.  This activity brings me great comfort.

I’ve left comfort on the seat, hopefully to be found very soon for I fear it will blow away.
Thanks for allowing us to join in this with you.

cheers Kate

Vitality

vi·tal·i·ty

1. exuberant physical strength or mental vigor: a person of great vitality.

I love weekends like this…
An afternoon spent in the garden.  Picking the last of our tomatoes, excited little hands discovering frogs in the veggie patch and pond. 
A quiet night, cups of tea and a canvas out ready to paint again….it has been a while.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Home 119 has been ‘released’ by Kate.
I love this word and especially love where this home is now waiting to be discovered.  Thank you Kate.

Hi Kellie,
We have launched vitality now too.   Last weekend we went to an Organic and Sustainable Living Festival, we listened to some great speakers, enjoyed crowd watching and ate some delicious food.  It was a gorgeous day (been like winter here since).  I decided after looking through their great veggie patch to leave vitality in a flower in the zucchini plant. 

Cheers  Kate.

Snug

It seems we may be the only state in the country that is having a taste of wintery weather.  The first day of Autumn and it is grey and rainy outside. 

A snug day to stay indoors and get crafty with an enthusiastic little Blossom. These past few weeks Bloss and I have been rummaging our way from Op (thrift) shop to Op shop building up supplies while her two big sisters are in Kinder.

I have wanted to make the girls their very own sewing basket for sometime now and think we are almost there.  We have found some real treasures, from wooden cotton reels, loads of coloured yarn, silk and crochet beads, wooden pegs and an entire jar of vintage buttons to get us started.

Today we made wooden peg people.  Bloss cut little clothes for them and stuck masses of curly hair upon their heads.  Then we played, our peg people spent the morning walking the long tight rope Bloss made from string.

Home of happiness 116 has been released by the lovely guest Kate today, our first home in Tasmania!  We are so grateful for the interest people take in this little space and enjoy reading about each delightful release.

Thank you Kate!

(Guest Release)

Hi Kellie,
There was much excitement (mostly from me) when we received our homes in the mail yesterday.  Such gorgeous paper that you made the envelope out of.
My children decided that snug was the ideal word to leave in the local library.  As we were off to the library after school we took snug with us and Mahalia found a knitting book with some rather snug looking wrist warmers in it so that is where we left it.  Hopefully with winter fast approaching someone will borrow the book and get a nice surprise.   Snug is in the Wynyard library.

cheers Kate.
