Little moments that made me...smile...this week





 This week we have had sickness in the air...so it has been a quiet week. 
A week of sleep and pretending,  sand play in the garden, baking, reading, drawing and cuddles It's nice to remember those little moments in the week.
 The moments that pass in the blink of an eye, but make me so very happy.


Sometimes it really is the simple things...my new book $5 thrifted at a local fair (i don't think it had ever been opened)! Just flicking through the pages and seeing it on my side board in the kitchen has made me smile. 



 A pasta and patty cake necklace made awhile ago...we found it, played with it and found a nice place to display it. Such happy colours and special art such as this displayed in the house is a nice reminder of the fun things we do together.


 Oh, my vintage Christmas tin thrifted at a garage sale on Sunday whilst driving home from the beach. It was $2 and will be perfect to hold all my special Christmas decorations. 
I love it and really can't stop thinking about Christmas and all the fun festive activities that go with it.


Craft and drawing...one of our favorite afternoon activities.

Left over pasta in the garden...the flowers are blooming and those cute little legs with boots and big boy pants on...oh, so very sweet.


Friday also makes us smile...2 full days with daddy and tomorrow is our wedding anniversary.
 We will spend the day just the three of us, a yummy breakfast  and the early sitting at our local Thai restaurant with our little one.

Oh, Sarah, what a lovely post. I adored the first two photos, in particular - you are so right about capturing those precious moments. I feel like they are like sand slipping through my fingers. This weekend, I'm going to try to capture some on PB. Enjoy your wedding anniversary, lovely girl. J x
