Recently I posted about finding vintage items in Grandma’s backyard, which for some reason has been one of my most popular posts. So I am back again to share a few ‘bits & pieces’ from my last visit to mums.
I have just spent one week back at mum’s house with my siblings and all of our kids. As per usual, we spent many hours in the kitchen cooking for the thousands of hungry mouths…occasionally breaking out into some devil inspired Mexican wave dance. If Simone, my youngest sister, has one drop of food that does not come from Adam & Eve’s ‘all natural garden’, over a period of 20 minutes she morphs into a completely different being of which I can’t quite describe because it depends on which of the following she has consumed: gluten, caffeine, salicylates (yep, you might need to look that one up), food colourings, 130B (yep, another one to look up)…I could go on. She is also scared of the dark! Oh, I had so much fun with this one, hiding in bushes in the backyard in the dark waiting for her to walk from the art studio back to the house where there are no lights, and launching on her like a person over dosed on 130B. Ohhh, I’m still giggling over that one…I have never seen her jump so high and scream so loud. But Simone, our ‘Adam & Eve All Natural Goddess’ has convinced us all to make our own bread. She has patiently taught me how to make bread and given me one of her bread-makers (which kinda helps). So I have now promoted myself to a new holy domain of domestic life. I reckon I now have the glowing domestic halo sitting above me right now! Come on….how many people can say ‘I make my own bread’??? The fact that I still can’t make a packet cake or boil an egg is besides the point. Now for my other siblings, well… I’ll leave that to another post, cause I want to share some photos. I hope you like them mum. And thanks again for letting us all come down and trashing the joint!
I took the photos below using my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone with different effects eg. Vintage, Cartoon, Oil/Pastel.
I remember mum crocheting this blanket when I was a little girl. She still has the same lounge chair as well.
