twenty thirteen here we come…
Posted in personal January 8th, 2013 by pia


Happy new year mes amis. It’s a scorcher here in Sydney today, I’m sitting in our office/studio/storage space in the house which has a skylight – normally I love the skylight, today, not so much: The room feels like a sauna. Apparently it is 43 degrees out there. Laly is having an afternoon nap (yay!), so I thought I’d take this opportunity to write a little post to say hello! and welcome in the new year. I hope you’re all well and enjoyed the festive season. Did you get a chance to make a wreath? Mine is looking rather brown in this hot weather.

I have lots to share with you in the coming weeks. I have an incredible project which I have been keeping secret for a long time as I wasn’t sure if I could finish it. With the help of some wonderful people, I’ve actually managed to complete it over the past 6 months and I cannot wait to reveal it in one week’s time. Oh, I’m so excited. I’m so excited!

{This photo was taken on New Years Day. We hung out with my cousin’s family and Laly got lots of kisses and cuddles from her cousins Issabella – pictured, and Sahraa.}

    My baby has a mottled fist,
    My baby has a neck in creases,
    My baby kisses and is kissed
    For she’s the very thing for kisses ~

    Well, for you to have waited six long months to spill your secret, one teeny week must not seem too bad…but the rest of us can’t wait!

    Well we are very excited too!! You can be assured of that! It always makes me very happy when you post to your blog, as I don’t follow any of the other social medias and I think I miss a lot of your content.

    It’s hard to imagine 43 degree weather as I sit in our big old cold stone house in France! Good luck with that.

    What a tender shot Pia. The colours and tones are so soft and warm. An Australian summer. Cousins are a gift.
