Boutique Baking

Lucky, lucky me! 

I am the winner of the beautiful Peggy Porschen Boutique Baking Book from the gorgeous girls at Cake Ink.

The collaboration of two immensely talented ladies, Samone - graphic design genius, and Janelle - cake baker extraordinaire, who come together to form Cake Ink.: all things cake and stationery.

Some of you might remember Samone also of Red Letter Studio from my post on the beautiful invites she made for my 30th birthday. Still love them Samone!

Thanks girls!

Customer Photos

On Mother's Day this beautiful photo was sent to me by lovely blog reader and 
customer from Queensland, Leah.

I love how she has styled her items from The White Shed in this gorgeous vignette.

Thanks for sharing Leah and a big thank you to all of my amazing customers and blog followers for their very kind feedback and emails each week that make my job even more rewarding. I do really appreciate it!

If you have a great photo of your items from The White Shed please email me a copy, I am putting together a customer album on my Facebook page.

Hallelujah it has rained!  
An inch of it so far and hopefully more to come. With seeding nearly complete we certainly needed it.

Most of you would probably wish it away but for us farmer's wives it means happy husbands, wet soil and watered crops (not to mention a nice green garden)!

The spirits within the house have lifted. There's nothing we enjoy hearing more than the drops belting down on the tin roof.

Here's to a great season ahead.

An Update

Mother's Day Flowers

Tommy's Painting, Olllie's Card & Flower Brooch

Things have been more than a little hectic around here of late. I have some exciting new interior projects underway, developments with furniture and stock for the shop and am still trying to juggle being the best mum possible to my adorable boys.

Lately I have found myself working much more than I ever planned to. I will be setting some new rules so that I make the time I need to for my family!

 I was extremely spoilt on Mother's Day. Showered in kisses and cuddles!
Flowers, new pyjamas (picked by Tommy online) but the best of all were the handmade card and flower brooch from Ollie (which I proudly wore all day) and the painting from Tommy (in which my ears seem to have grown rather a lot!).

My lovely mum and step dad came for a roast lunch at our house with my husbands parent's and then my dad and step mum came for dinner.

It was a fantastic day and one where I am reminded that material gifts mean nothing but the greatest gift of all is motherhood.

A New Project

Board by me, Images via Pinterest

Just commenced work on an exciting new project and I am having so much fun searching for inspiration. You may recognise A-M's kitchen in there and my own.
