Heard Your Heart Say Love... and a Giveaway!

or something similar!

It's Friday again. Day for reflecting on the week that was and the joys that have accompanied it.

Favourite images of the week are these 2 friends at the kindy 'breakfast, wear your PJs' party.

This week I've also loved catching up with friends and sharing special moments of life together. I definitely measure friendships in the levels of sharing given and received. When people share the journey's of their hearts with me I feel that deep sense of privilege and joy in their trust.

I've also loved making this bread for the first time. For kiwi's I'd say very similar to vogel's bread. It has 2 cups of seeds in it (I used Chia, Sunflower and Pumpkin) and it is a no knead bread as well! Whoop! One loaf did explode rather ungraciously in the oven but I can forgive it for that. Make again? Yes. Online recipe here. I also managed to stab myself with a sharp piece of crust on the edge of one loaf (check out those mean jagged edges!) and I drew blood! I kid you not - blood people.

I also picked myself up some very 80s? pumps in orange from an op-shop this week, they called out to me and I don't think Deb would have wanted them!

Oh and before I go all missing my 'planned giveaway each month' here is one for June. This is a beautiful long oblong/rectangle shaped 100% silk scarf from Trade Aid - which means not only is it gorgeous it is also ethically made and the makers receive fair wages.

What isn't to love? Enter by leaving a comment and if you are a follower by email or google or some other way leave me another comment and you'll get 2 entries.  Happy to send it anywhere in the world - I'm not sure about inter-galactic postage it seems too unpredictable!

Entries close 10th of July. Winner chosen out of a hat by one of my delicious children

What has made you smile this week?

and just to make me happy and hopefully inspire me for some creative endeavour what is your favourite colour combination?

Joining in gratefully

I love the idea of a kindy breakfast. Seeing your kids have special times with their friends is so wonderful. That bread looks goooooooooood - just like Vogels! Love the shoes! And finally, I love that scarf. Please enter me in the draw!

Also, I'm a follower, so can I have another entry? Thanks! (I really like it.)

Also also, some colour combos I love are red with white polkadots, and coral/aqua or sea foam green.

Plus what a beautiful scarf, that would definately brighten up a winters day :)

I have to try out that bread - despite the risk of personal injury! I love Vogels, but its too expensive to buy every week. Great shoes - I wish I had had time to hit the op shops with you guys last week.

Please count me in for the scarf giveaway - I'm loving orange at the moment, by my all time favourite colour combo is navy and white.
