~ our joyful moments 2015 - weeks 22-25 ~

I'm managing to journal every day (in my 365 diary and doing the life:captured promtpts).  I'm writing post cards most days.  I post on IG (mini blogging) at least once a day ... no wonder I'm struggling to find time to compose/compile real blog posts.

Karin and I chose books as our theme for June - lovely subject matter.

The top photo was my current (that week) reading pile in the bedroom.  I really love Kate Atkinson's turn of phrase.

Next was a flat-lay vignette style shot of my favourite book from last year that I'm currently re-reading  (its fabulous but devastating).

My next shot was my grandmother's recipe book - we were searching for her coconut and raspberry slice recipe.  Its such a lovely keepsake to have - splattered with butter, annotated in parts, little notes stuck in).

This week I found these lovely versions of some of my childhood favourite reads - they're such lovely editions.  I remember reading and acting out bits of the Secret Garden over and over again with a friend.  The water colour is by Meredith Gaston - check her out here.

What are you reading? I'd love to know.


  1. gorgeous images Ally - I remember reading the Secret Garden:)

    I've just finished The Silkworm, the second Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling) novel. If you like crime fiction at all, I highly recommend both that & the first book (The Cuckoo's Calling).

    1. I've read both of them Vickie and enjoyed them ...good taste!!!

  2. Enjoyed to hear you again. Long time hvn't saw u account. You've changed name account on Instagram.


I'd love to hear from you - in fact it will probably make my day
