We recently enjoyed family weekend away in the Blue Mountains. With the family-friendly Fairmont Resort as our base, we enjoyed exploring the natural beauty of the region.

On a solo afternoon walk, I fell in love with the homes and gardens of Leura. You don't have to squint very hard to feel like you are somewhere in England.

The kids loved the various rides at Scenic World during which we stumbled upon Sculpture at Scenic World. This was an intoxicating exhibition of world-class sculptures set within a pristine rainforest of the Blue Mountains. What a joy to stumble upon such a special event!

10 Modern Letterboxes

There are so many decisions to make when building a new house. Many details seem to overlap and influence each other. I often find I change one thing with a resulting domino effect of other changes. We're finalising the interior of the house with some great help from Therese from Full of Grace Interiors

It's surprising how excited I am to work on the garden. I think it is because it is something I can do mostly myself and there is ample room for creativity. A garden is such an important part of creating a beautiful house and I know our girls will spend a lot of time out there.

I've been looking for a modern letterbox and after much hunting I wanted to share with you my favourites. The good news is they come at a range of prices.
