We are camping for the summer in France, while we rent our house out. Here are a few photos from the last couple of weeks.

01. The first campsite we visited in lovely Brittany. 02. At our current campsite in the Gironde. Think pines and sandy beaches. 03 & 04. A technicolour rug on the forest floor. 05. Always looking for snacks. 06. We brought bikes to explore. So far we’ve cycled 300m to the beach every day. 07 & 08. Wren is fascinated by Bug Bingo. She uses it for matching and sorting bugs as well as playing the actual game. There are lots of real bugs here too.

Note: Wren’s dress is by Pala Mino. Check out their new collection here.

Happy 2014 everybody! Here are a few pictures from our Christmas and New Year break.

01. We rented a beautiful cottage in Wales with a couple of friends and their kids. The weather was wild and stormy so we stayed in and cooked lots of delicious food. 02 & 03. I love these traditional handmade Safi plates. They make everything look good and are available from Moroccan Bazaar. 04 & 05. In Wales we visited the Trefriw woolen mill. They make incredible Welsh blankets, these are a few of their vintage designs. 07. In search of a bit of heat we visited the Eden Project. It was a good move. The rainforest biome was so warm that my lens kept steaming over and I couldn’t take many pictures. Next time I’m taking a picnic.

Our endless summer seems to have finally come to an end. Autumn has rustled in and I am a little behind in posting my photos. Here are a few from the last days of summer…
