Lucie 🏑  Capturing moments of life in our 1891 former Manse on the South Coast of NSW, Australia All photos have been snapped by me on my phone.

Welcome to our "front room" (such a creative name for this sitting room at the front of the house! πŸ˜‚) I find that videos can give a better idea of how a space is configured, but I'm also conscious that they can be a bit of a pain to view on a feed of largely still images. Keen to get some feedback on whether you'd like some more videos (and if so whether it's better to put them on the story) or just stick with photos? Xx

This stairway to our master bedroom was made to match the original 1891 staircase in the house. I'm glad we decided to install the sisal runner - although the cats seem to think it's their personal scratching pad! πŸ˜ΌπŸ™€
The antique mirror was a bargain find on a local Facebook BuySwapSell group!

It was wonderful to wake in the early hours this morning to the sound of rain, but by the the time the day broke it was back to more sunshine. Our kitchen table is a great spot to soak up some morning light ✨ Hoping for loads more rain tonight, although sadly it's not on the forecast. Is it dry in your neck of the woods too??

The pecan tree is starting to do its spring thing πŸ’š This tree was planted in the early 1970s with a pecan seed smuggled into Australia from Hawaii on Navy boat HMAS Melbourne. The naval officer who lived here had an American wife who couldn't source pecans for thanksgiving, so they had to grow their own tree! This lovely story was passed into me via Instagram by @kaas66 who planted the seed as a child πŸ’š

We've just arrived home from seeing Floriade to find that our hippeastrums have erupted to create our very own floral festival! They are such brash, joyful flowers ❀️ #mygarden #loveofcountryhouses #hippeastrum #red #springhassprung #spring

I found (another!) Buka tray recently and it is the perfect size for our coffee table in the front sitting room.
What objects do you like to decorate coffee tables with? I think that my favourites are trays, plants, books and quirky items.

A big thank you to @berrycottagegardener for joining me for a wander through my garden today and for bringing these gorgeous home grown sweet peas. They smell sooo good on this shelf in my kitchen!
I love that Insta can create connections with like minded souls all over the world and in your own neighbourhood 🌸

Clivia time! I confess that orange isn't usually my favourite colour, but like the happy blaze that clivias bring to the garden in early spring. What's blooming in your garden?? #clivia #mygarden #spring #springhassprung #loveofcountryhouses

Gladioli gladness in our front hallway. I'm also glad it's Friday!
I've popped a couple of extra pics in (swipe right) as some of you have asked to have a closer look at these pictures. They were created by my great aunt Dame Eileen Mayo in 1928 when she was just 21 years old. They all depict Ballet Russes dancer Serge Lifar in costumes from a wide range of performances.

Every garden needs a swing! Our tyre swing hangs from one of the jacarandas that line the driveway.
We even had a bride and groom on the swing a few years ago when a couple knocked on our door and asked if the could have some wedding photos taken in our garden πŸ’žπŸ’ž

Our front hallway. An old rug, art on the wall and a collection of loved objects. These are some of the ingredients that make a house feel like home to me. What are some of your special "home ingredients"?
