Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Mum!

We spent a great weekend with my parents for their 40th Wedding Anniversary, but also, since it's Mother's Day today, we got an extra round of hugs and kisses with them today.

Wishing you plenty of family time, with your mum, your sisters, your daughters, your cousins... whoever you love and treats you motherly! My first Mother's Day in Waiting (I suppose) but not my first as a Mama of a Hound! xoxo

The photo of my Mum and I is probably 1978 or early 1979? At a hilarious place in the Blue Mountains called 'Megalong Valley'... and we're both so darling. Mum took most of my photos, but there's a couple of cute ones that Dad took of us together when I was young. I used this photo for my Sew Weekly inspiration and Mum said she had two crochet cardies that she wore when she was pregnant with me... this one and a pinky one, that I have now. I adopted it as my own as a teenager, and whilst it has a few holes, I'm going to wear it through winter while I'm pregz!



  1. That photo is amazing, I love your expression! Happy Mother's Day to you - Doris Day and baby Darling are very lucky x

  2. How cute! Baby Darling looks a little grumpy! Your mom is cute as can be!

  3. Hehe, I couldn't help but smile at your adorable grumpy little face... you both look so cute together! How fab that you still have your mother's crocheted cardigans?!
    I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend!

  4. heh! cute! I found your blog via the tessuti website and thought I was going a bit mad... but no, it's official. Your mum was my grade 1 teacher!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
