you're beautiful

just the way you are.

One of the most wonderful magazine covers I've seen in a while.
Black, white & red.
Super stylish and oh so sweet.

It's helped pass the time as I lay on the couch with the flu.
Four days of bed rest and pyjamas.
Resting, dozing, reading and knitting.
Some much needed down-time for a very burnt-out Mama.
Thank goodness for fabulous Grandmas.
And my marvelous man who makes the best cuppa
and gives the greatest cuddles.

The lovely Evie from Handmade Romance sent me this award:
and so I will pass on the compliments to these lovely people...because i love the way they write, photograph and make. And I'm inspired by the way they see and document the world around them.


pass this on girls, if you like.


  1. Thank you Jodi for the award ~ that's so kind x I do hope you are feeling better soon x emma ;0)

  2. You are so sweet : ) Thank you so much for the award, and I hope you are feeling much better now. xo Shannon

  3. You are so lucky to have a kind and supportive family around you when you are sick. Lying around, knitting and reading sounds like heaven...maybe I should pretend to be sick...oh, but I don't have the people...I'd have to struggle on and cook and clean and homeschool anyway by myself.
    That sounded like such a winge but it wasn't, just realise how lucky; no it's probably not luck- you deserve it- you are.

  4. Hope you feel better soon. Tea and juice!! Love that cover as well. Simple and oh so chic.

  5. Oh dear I hope all mends quickly...sounds like you have the right therapy there though.... x

  6. hope you feel better soon. i was unwell last week and read the same mag and Im loving that cover too : )

  7. oh, thankyou jodi, I'm a little late in dropping by...I've been pottering about in the garden and at the sewing machine lately, so not much computer time. I hope you're feeling better, and I'm with you on the mister cuppa, my man makes me lovely ones too. I'm off for a few days on a little spontaneous holiday, so I'll catch up when I get back. xx

  8. hello lovely, so sorry 2 hear u've been hit with the flu too. by golly it sux! its lucky everyone didn't come down with it. hope u are feeling recovered now (i'm not dammit still coughing etc doc says it can take good 6 weeks to get over it). thank you for passing this award on to me. feel ive been such a crap blogger lately that i dont deserve it but i really appreciate your support and fab comments of late. wish i could pop by and talk buddism, yoga, natural birt & cute little boyz etc sometime, love claerwen xx
