The smile of a great man

"He smiled understandingly - much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in your life. It faced - or seemed to face - the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favour. It understood you just so far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey."

from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, page 49.

Pom Pom Pom

Last Sunday I visited a friend for the evening... we watched Cry Baby, drank coffee too late at night, and made things with balls of wool. I crocheted this tenny tiny hat for my cousins brand new little man, Tom.

Pom Pom Rug Update: No progress. But how cute is this baby hat with a pom pom on top?!

a handful of radishes

I'm a big fan of radishes. They're just so yummy and healthy. I think of them as beautiful winter strawberries.

welcome May

Oh Hello, it's May don't you know?

Have I told you how much I love Autumn? I really really do. And I think it's one of the very best things about it already being May. I just can't get over how crazy fast this year is flying by.

This was such a beautiful morning...
just after the dawn service on ANZAC day.
