Some of the Prep*


Fresh paint on the windowsills.


Constant brewing of PG Tips in the biggest pot.


Endless dishes to wash.


Christmas beauty.


One of our beloved crew (and the most introverted).


Flowers to arrange. Thank goodness the mud room was freezing--it made a nice walk-in fridge for the bouquets.


Best man, freshly trimmed.


Giles and Tia, home!!


What's a wedding compared to the Stone House baby?


A garland for getting married under--first tiny brass bells, then flowers and greenery and a glass bird or two, then we hoisted it up above the windows.


Typical bridezilla (not).

*These beautiful photos are courtesy of Emma at the Stone House who knows what she's doing!!

Prep work is not always fun but the end result is usually nice.

Emma's photos really are wonderful. I love the joy on Clara and Daisy's faces when Giles and Tia are home. I also love that the Stone House Baby looks like a doll. Adorable!

Emma definitely knows what she's doing - these are lovely photos! She had to time to notice the small things in the midst of the whirlwind.

Hi, I have discovered your blog and I am obsessed with your style. It is truly lovely. Thank you for sharing it all. I appreciate what a gift it is that you take the time to set such a lovely example of humility, simple, beautiful, and thoughtful approach to life. Most enriching for me is your unwillingness to conform to consumer pressures. I love love love it.
