snippets | pinks and floral

Friday, 15 June 2012

I apologise for the ridiculous amount of baby photos I've been posting of late. It's just... Lalie makes for a rather endearing subject at this age, and photographing my little cherub requires minimal tidying up or shoving the mess aside*. (I'm the first to admit I'm a mess-shover-to-the-side-er-er. And if I can't be bothered shoving, an effective 'crop' will usually suffice).

Here's the result of a weeks shoving and shooting:

1. Dainty coriander shadows (and our favourite shoes from here).
2. Pretty vintage dresses (and a basket shopper gifted to me long ago by this lovely lady).
3. Frankie magazine and the most delicately delicious tea arrived in the mail from another dear friend. Just as the cover suggests, this little surprise package did me the 'world of good'.
4. You didn't think this would be a completely Lalie-free post, did you?
5. Cheap and cheerful blooms (and an amazing antique piano stool 'borrowed' from my Mum).
6. I have no idea what this plant is, but I love it's gorgeous foliage.
7. Toddler tablescape.
8. My sister came to stay and brought her pillow - I'm in love with her Ikea bedlinen which unfortunately appears to have been discontinued :(
9. The leaves are finally changing here.
10. I just adore those little fingers.

Have a wonderful weekend!

* Kinda felt I should confess after Em's beautiful and honest post on the subject.


  1. your photography is SO beautiful Claire!

    Glad the tea got to you safely- it is an amazing brew I must say! Hope you enjoy it m'lady.

    Much love to you, as always


  2. That Ikea pillowcase is gorgeous and as with all unique things Ikea they quickly dissapear..

  3. Lovely, I'm more of a mess cropper outer than tidier upper!

  4. Love your snippet posts Claire. Hope you two are holding up ok on your lonesome. Sister visits sound like just the trick!

    I confess to being a shover out of the way-er-er too.

  13. so beautiful! i love every snippet. have a wonderful weekend!

  14. I am a big fan of this recent trend of honesty about mess. Having said that, your mess is definitely more beautiful than mine!

    Lovely photos x

  15. I'm a serious clutter-shover. It's the only way to tidy.

    Beautiful pictures Claire. The rails of Lalie's vintage dresses? Sigh. And her Heidi Walks shoes are lovely. I'm so tempted to get some for Phiney, but what colour?!

    And the pillowcase print is lovely. Very Liberty. xx

    ps. There are never enough pictures of Lalie and her pretty face and pretty clothes. xx

  16. Don't apologise - we all love a baby photo.
    Love your bedside lamp. Gorgeous. x

  17. Ahhh the ikea linen - I'm sat in it right now, I didn't realise it was so rare! I wonder if it's still on sale here I the UK.. I'll have a look for you next time I'm there.

    Lovely pics by the way.. So dreamy xxx

  18. Your snippets are amazing. Totally amazing!

  19. I love your Lalie photos, and the others too of course. Very pretty pillowcase - I've got my heart set on a raspberry gingham quilt cover set on the Ikea website at the moment. I'm hoping to get to Melbourne in July to try and get one, the only bad thing about being in Tasmania! ;)

  20. I love all your photos of Laile! I just bought that floral ikea linen for Lyla's bed, they had a lot in stock at my local ikea. Would you like me to pick some up for you?

  22. There is something very special about the way you capture moments, Claire. x
