I’ve been a little slack with participating, or should I say, not participating in my Clever Cookie 10/10 photography group for the last few months. But here I am 2016 – back with a vengeance!
Each month on the 10th day, a group of us link up to share 10 photos we have taken that month, hence the 10/10. So please, at the end of this post, click on the link to my pal Jo over at You Had Us At Hello & follow through the links until you get back to me. Leaving us a comment of how much you liked our pics will really make our day! 😉
I’ve just spent week down South at our country property (I know right? It sounds so la dee da!), but we’ve had this place nearly 15 years now & Mr D & I lived in it for nearly 10, so it’s a little home away from home for us. You can read a bit of my back story here.
It’s in a small town called Nannup, 3 hours South of Perth, about 45 minutes East of Margaret River for you East Coast types (I’m hoping Margaret River is a bit of a land mark for you!).
The Summer isn’t my favourite time of year to go to Nannup. It’s hot, it’s dry & usually very windy. The cows get a bit pongy too. But needless to say we always have a great time, catching up with old friends, the kids climb trees, ride their bikes & we play lots of board games. Mr D & I spend a lot of time sitting out the back, star gazing, drinking wine & admiring the serenity!
So, here are 10 photos I took of our place & many of our little travel souvenirs that make up “The Old Dairy”.
This is our entry. The caricature was done of Mr D & I back in 1998 in Paris, the Stairway to the Moon print was bought in Broome & our little fire dragons lugged all the way back from Taiwan!
This bowl was bought for me by my Mum in Turkey, the tribal ear piece somewhere in Malaysia & a collection of foreign coins. Our little Lucky Cat came back from Japan with us. He’s super cute & with his jingly bell it’s hard to keep the little kids away from him!
Ah, my favourite corner to sit! These couches have been in our family since I was a little girl.
Nannup is the natural habitat of the Blue Wren, we love watching them hop & jump about, so I couldn’t not bring these two little cuties back from Prague with me.
This is my kid’s room. The Indonesian puppet is from Bali, the mobile from Laos & the artwork was bought in a local art show in Nannup.
This wooden Mary & Child I lugged back from Poland along with a 15 piece Nativity Scene, but it was so worth it, she’s gorgeous!
This is where Mr D & I spend most of our time! No fires this time of year, but in Winter it’s perfect. This is a new addition to the house & unfortunately was not there when we were actually
This is a favourite space the whole family enjoys! A very rustic outdoor bath where the kids spend hours playing & Mr D & I solve the world’s problems late at night under the stars……
Hope you enjoyed one of my favourite places as much as I do!
