 IMG_0653PicMonkey Collagee IMG_0654I haven’t seen much of Australian winters in the past 9yrs, but I must say that I do love winters here too.  I love the rainy days at home, the fire is always going to cosy next to and the bush seems as beautiful as it could possibly be.  It’s nice being near my family too, we all have birthdays in winter and it will be the first time I will celebrate my little twin nieces’ birthday with them.  My mum and dad can come out cutting wood with us to share a morning bbq in the bush.  I miss Queenstown terribly, the snow, friends, the buzz of Winterfest, the amazing restaurants and cafes, but there are sacrifices with everything in life and spending winter here is all ok too.

1Here are a few vintage outfits that I am trying to pop on my facebook page (I desperately need a good computer fix up, or a newie).  The vintage swan top and brown shorts and not for sale, but you may see some similar things in my soon-to-be-launched ivylovesjack handmade range.  There will be dresses, some jackets, cool pants and pretty tops!!  I hope you will love them!

Listening to this.

Cleaning up a carpet of rice bubbles, after eating them straight out of the container with a spoon while I was doing the washing (her choice of boots for the occasion).

The start of a damn cute romper.

Our next phase?  It may involve some sheep, a little horse and a big orchard.  Fingers crossed!
