A Floating Farmhouse

Sure, I'm not the first person to post about this magical place, but I simply couldn't help myself!

Located in upstate New York and dubbed the Floating Farmhouse, this property was once close to being condemned. Thankfully, the new owner had better ideas and after pouring some serious love and attention into the project, it is now a complete and utter gem - feast your eyes on this baby...

Summer home..

This Swedish summer home located on the island of Gotland is yet another little gem worth sharing with you.

The perfect mix of casual style, rustic charm and family warmth is exactly what I hope to one day replicate in a country retreat of our own - I'm saving feverishly as we speak!

So much goodness beautifully captured in just a handful of images, pure joy....

New York Retreat

This  New York retreat had me at "hello"!

From it's strangely haunting exterior to that killer porch area, this is one little getaway I'd love to get my hands on.   Dreamy huh?

Shelter Co.

I spend probably way too much time browsing blogs and the like, but sometimes I find something amongst the myriad of imagery that just really appeals to me. Maybe that's what keeps me coming back for more, uncovering that hidden treasure!

Shelter Co. is one such discovery.  Based in California, this boutique company offers an outdoor experience like no other.  Fully furnished European style canvas tents, decked out with the coolest 'glamping' decor for that ultimate nature-based event.

I'd happily roast some marshmallows around a Shelter Co campfire - definitely my kind of camping!

Che & Fidel

Not so long ago I was approached by the lovely Jodi from the Che & Fidel blog regarding an upcoming shoot on the Apple Isle!

Jodi was heading to the little town of Cygnet with Photographer Luisa Brimble to review the wonderful concept that is A Common Ground.  Anywhoooo, we both agreed that a pair of Bergies would be the perfect accessory for the tiny feet appearing in the shoot and the end result is documented below.

That's Jodi with little her daughter Poet in her arms and young Che is sporting the navy Bergies. Thanks for sharing these beautiful shots with us Jodi.  This type of editorial is right up our alley! 

Please do check out Jodi's fabulous blog, it's full of all sorts of goodness...

My friend Maia....

Yet again I've stumbled across something that stopped me in my tracks and I was immediately compelled to share it. This short film by Julia Warr is simply mesmerising, her sensitivity to the subject is almost flawless and the music...well, it's just perfect.

Enjoy 'My friend Maia' took my breath away.

A short introduction from the Director:

Shot in Fire Island, New York, this film (4min. 23 sec) captures the secrets of eternal youth as Maia Helles, a Russian ballet dancer turns 95 but still remains resolutely independent, healthy and as fit as a forty year old. Made by Julia Warr, artist and film maker met Maia on a plane 4 years ago and became utterly convinced by the benefits of her daily exercise routine, which Maia perfected, together with her Mother, over 60 years ago, long before exercise classes were ever invented. (2011)
