A few instagram photos from this past weekend. We tied some scrap fabric bunting in the mandarin tree for K's pirate party. Silly me- I got busy and completely forgot to take photos until everyone had gone home, but it was fun day. My sister came and helped (thank you Sarah!) and she made a chocolate treasure chest cake which was much admired (and quickly devoured). The only remaining evidence of the party are broken water balloons all over the lawn- what started out as quite a civilised occasion quickly descended into a water fight.
And some of Sunday was spent lying in the shade on an old barkcloth quilt, immersed in this book which I was given quite a while ago and just rediscovered on the shelf. It's beautifully written.
I hope you had a happy weekend too.
