A Dash of Cream

A couple of little projects to see you through the weekend today dear reader. We seem to be surrounded by cream these days, on the hob, around the home and in our craft projects. We were called to action last weekend, when returning home what should we find standing alone, abandoned by the side of […]

Hunkering Down in the Rainbow Lane Bunker

So its finally winter in Sydney. Which pretty much means crisp-ish 16 degree days and swapping from Ugg Boots to Havianas and back again every five minutes to ward off overheating. Nights are blessedly colder and after a rather harried six months of Kindergarten for Ari and a much thought over decision to take The […]

Shaping the hearts and minds of children. Well year five and six anyway.

I am approaching tomorrow with what feels like a night out on the emotional bar tab rolling around in my head, pushing out against my eyes. More than anything I’m excited, beyond excited actually to be stepping into a classroom to teach Primary Ethics to years five and six at Ari’s school. If I didn’t […]

The worlds best non-alcoholic G&T……

I got this recipe off late-night telly after Lord Moss finally plugged into the new century. Until Lady Moss realised it was nothing more than a way to waste too many nights on the couch rather than writing and crafting, we learnt a good many things about hoarders, scary parents and people who like to […]

Too busy eating icecream

I haven’t been around much this summer because, well it was summer. An all too fleeting time where so much happened that it was hard to keep track of the days and separate one from another. Most of it was spent at our new (vintage) caravan on the beach, some of it tossing fresh ingredients […]

Joie de Vivre

Lady Moss is still in holiday la mode and will be back as soon as we stop trotting up to Bacchus (207 Darling Street) every afternoon at 3pm for fresh champagne. Tra la la…..

shhhhh don’t tell anyone!

All those winter nights Lady Moss spent holed up at the sewing table squirreling away, has finally paid off as we put the finishing touches on our Christmas gifts. Fancy a peek into the workshop? Pinking shears, cloth drawstring bags and glitter glue, these are a few of our favourite things! Preparing for the arrival […]

The Bells Still Ring For Me

One of my favourite movie lines of all time from The Polar Express, about a little boy given a tiny bell from Santa Claus to reawaken his faith in the magic of Christmas. Not that  I have ever needed any help in that department, but I especially love the joy that comes from hearing the […]

Countdown to Christmas

Every year I make a list of things I want to create for Christmas. For the past several its been a mini stocking advent calendar. Looking at the pictures on the Martha website it seemed far too time consuming and involved for Lady Moss’s patience levels, not to mention our wine stock. We decided to […]

Spreading Cheer and Peanut Butter

The nicest thing about living in the country was the daily visitors of the aviation variety. We had a constant stream of little fluttering friends to add colour and song to our day. Our courtyard at Rainbow Lane is sadly lacking guests and so we decided to add variety to their diet with some wild […]
