Yay, it’s Friday!  That’s good because it’s a long weekend here in Australia.  That means everyone is home on Monday, I love that.
I just wanted to share some of my favourite moments this week


 baking these moon cookies (as Aidan calls them)

having fun setting up this page , I’d love you to pop by and say hello

listening to this beautiful music thanks to Clare

wearing some brooch loveliness from Louana thanks to Susie for organising it


making mini bunting for my afternoon tea next week, are you coming?


 loving beautiful flowers and gorgeous uni friends visiting


especially loving, autumn leaf showers and gorgeous little people giggling
What have you been up to?

I’ll be back later to put up a few raffle items for the afternoon tea.  

I am especially loving all the love as well…you knew that didn’t you ♥

  • 😀 I loved having coffee with a very lovely lady, and then having a second lovely lady catch us there and stop in for a coffee too! xx

  • At first glance I thought the bouquet was actually coloured cabbages, then I thought flowers, then I thought coloured cabbages again. But it must be flowers or you would have said coloured cabbages! A bouquet of vegetables would be very cool.

    See you at the afternoon tea!

  • what a wonderful week you've had – so many pretties and goodies and yummies.
    Your FB page is looking great ! All those wonderful photos in one spot.
    That kale is superb – so tricky !

  • Lots to love there especially those gorgeous flowers, the likes of which I don't think I've seen before. What are they? gxo

  • A whole lot of Love in this lovely post! Enjoy the long weekend and those giggling little ones, they are having fun with those leaves, great picture.
    Hope your tea party will be a huge succes, take care, Maureen x

  • That post made me smile. Have a happy long weekend Cathie 🙂

  • Would love to come to your afternoon tea – and all your pretties here are so gorgeous! We have a long weekend as well – and i'll be thinking of you! xox

  • Look so forward to your posts Cathie xx have a great weekend x

  • I've been looking forward to the long weekend too; finished uni yesterday so its the start of a nice 5 week break. Looks like youve had a great week 🙂

  • Hang on a sec – you get a day off for the queens's birthday? Surely this is a day we should get two in the UK?

    Although I guess we did get the wedding day off, and we get another day off for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year. But still, the more days off the better 🙂

    Hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy. You deserve!

  • TK

    little people giggling with all those leaves….whats not to love!! Wishing you bouquets of love for this long weekend, enjoy! TK xx

  • All the best for your afternoon tea next week Cathie – that bunting will look so cute all made up. There's nothing cuter than little friends throwing autumn leaves around the place and the inevitable giggling that ensues. Have a marvellous long weekend sweet lady!

  • My husband and daughter go to work and day care at a uni, so they'll be there on Monday while I have a day off alone (I'm loving making lots of plans for that day!)
    Looking forward to the afternoon tea – let me know if I can do anything to help xo

  • Oooo yummy, moon cookies! They look delectable. And I do love those cabbage flowers (at least that's what I think they are), I went through a phase of buying those often, they're so unusually pretty.
    Lovely post Cathie. Happy Weekend to you! :o)

  • Lovely post Cathie. Hope you have a great weekend.

  • growing up in canberra in autumn as a child was amazing. There were always crispy leaves to throw around, and kick at your friends. Such a beautiful moment to capture. How I wish I could have tea with you next sunday! x

  • Sounds like a gorgeous day 🙂

  • Just added moon cookies to our to do list for this week! And we definitely need to get outdoors for some vigorous leaf jumping and throwing!
