Link’s we’ve loved #14

It’s been a while since we’ve thrown some fun links at you. Spring time makes us want to run around outside more than it makes us want to sit inside updating the ‘blog. I’m sure those of you that are on your own simple adventures will understand.

We don’t celebrate Halloween in Australia (or at least, not in the Fearse Cave), but this Pinterest board has so many great DIY costume ideas that can be used for parties or book weeks or any other excuse to dress up that we thought it was worth linking anyway.

Even though Lil’ Fearse is too young yet, Mama has been salivating over more cubby makeovers. Check out this repainted Little Tikes house. Cute!

100 Days of Real Food had a FB competition for best school lunch of the day. Heaps of fun ideas, we like the simplicity of the winning entries. We are working on another 30 day care lunch ideas. Our food photography is a little on the icky side, but we’d like to offer more photos this time. Any tips on how to make Lil Fearse’s lunches look as appetising as they are?

Mama has been going through more boxes that have surfaced at her parents’ house. This has prompted re-reading of some great articles on dealing with sentimental clutter. Although we’ve linked some of these before, they are worth revisiting.

While going through the boxes Mama found a couple of very cute vintage children’s books that are well beyond repair. She is looking forward to exploring some of these vintage book projects.

You might have seen this video clip floating around the Internet the last week or so. On Friday this guy was our PM and there was a chance that marriage equality would be a reality in Australia one day soon. By Saturday the other guy had won the federal election, shattering those chances entirely.

Then again, Canada is also going a little loopy.

Better than this happening, though.

Time to count our blessings. We have many.

  1. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll juyst sum it up what I
    wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying yoour
    blog. I as well am aan aspiring blog writer but I’m still nnew to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    • Hi there,
      Thanks for your complimentary comment! I’m sorry the blog ate it. I haven’t been ‘feeding’ it lately so I’m not surprised it’s eating comments.
      At the moment I’m a very neglectful blogger, so I’m not sure I’m quite qualified to be offering blogging advice. :p
      A few things that have helped me along the way are, firstly, a list of ‘blog ideas’ for those writers block moments. This meant I was able to update more regularly as I had a bunch of ideas to draw from. Secondly, I’ve always read a lot of other blogs and that has often inspired my musings. The final thing that I think has really helped us is having a common thread or theme for our writing – because it was generally around the idea of simplicity we kept ourselves (mostly) on track.
      Don’t get too obsessed with stats (I actually enjoy our modest following probably more than I would a very large following – I feel more personally connected to my readers and I don’t get stressed about keeping huge amounts of people happy…that’s a personality quirk of mine that can be quite challenging to live with). Most of all, write about stuff you love. That’s what I do! Send me a link – I’d love to read what you write.
