And I love this unseasonably warm 70 degree weather we’re experiencing. It’s so nice to sit in the yard together.


Eleanor and Murray

All right, let’s stay outside today.

    I got my daughter Kate (5 1/2 months) two of the Liberty of London outfits! I have gotten so many compliments. I’m so glad you mentioned this line or I would never have been on the look out. By the way, Eleanor is beautiful!

    So cute! Love your outdoor furniture, by the way. Would you be willing to share how you made that “inspiration/collection board” of all of your outdoor stuff that you posted yesterday? I love when I see those. Great way to organize ideas.

    Precious! That’s a popular outfit. I got that one for my 2 year old as well:)

    I bet she does love that cool chair. I do, too!

    Wow – these are darling photos. An above commenter is right – they could be photos for a catalog – I’d buy it all! Speaking of which – I’ve already got a liberty dress for my little darling – but the chair. I’ve been wanting chairs similar to yours for a while, but have been holding off because of fear of rain soaked, moldy cushions. Do you have to do anything special for weather (ie, bring inside every night, etc) or can you just leave them be? I’m afraid it would be such a hassle…

    I remember when you wanted this chair. You mentioned how lovely it would be to curl up with a baby and sit outside in your garden. Here you are not only with the chair, but a baby too.
    I love the picture of Eleanor examining a little piece of nature in her hand.

    My favorite photo is the one with Eleanor and the dog. Nothing better than growing up with a doggie in the house. (Who needs siblings!–I’m an only child, obviously, who grew up with two mini schnauzers; they were my best friends.)

    Oh Eleanor is so lovely – just like her mother. I love your blog and happen upon it from time to time. … My daughter’s name is Lucia; she is 13 months, close to Miss E, I do believe.

    PS. Love Eleanor’s Liberty outfit!

    Eleanor is inheriting her mother’s chicness (is that a word?). She’s too adorable. Love the outfit, love her next to the fab pillow. And the photo of her peaking out the hole is too cute. I’d be tempted to blow that one up huge. Probably difficult to decide which pics to blow up, they’re all so cute! Can you do a shot of her in an astronaut outfit one day? I see her in an astronaut outfit with a daisy in her hand.
