Nothing is new...



Pre-loved retro furniture. Our myrtle chest of drawers arrived from the big island. We've realised that as well as replacing the handles with these ones that someone had painted it yellow! Ahh. At the moment it's in the living room of the flat, a handy spot for our music system and our Huon pine penguin family.

A plagiarised salad. Last week we had lunch at Tricycle, and ate a version of this salad. It was excellent. We couldn't wait for our next visit, so at the farmers market on Sunday we picked up some Tongola goats cheese "Curdy" and some beetroot. However the "hero" of the dish are the freshly shelled and toasted hazel nuts. It took a while because for each one I shelled for us to eat I had to give one to Claudia. She's taken after her big sister, they love hazelnuts and walnuts.

A puppy who loves to swim in the dam. Just like her older sister Nigella. Complete with Alligator impersonation snapping at the water.


Ok a little fib, a few new things at our place. A Christmas present to us. Bison stoneware I picked up on my trip to Melbourne. This blue, we have decided, is our colour for the hut. They are beautiful things.

What a beautiful blog you have. And a beautiful voice. Loved visiting you via your comment at Enjoying the Small Things tonight. Yours was right above mine and I loved hearing how you have devoured her blog over the last few days. I remember being the same way when I first found her. It is just so great to know there are people out there that find so much good and happiness in the world. It is heartwarming.
