secret garden style.

Today we're going to showcase Azriel's 'small style' with a gorgeous backdrop from this past weekend's craft show.  Jeff of Jackson Creek Press has an awesome backyard - and tucked in the furthest corner is this wonderful 'secret garden' space.  We had to do a mini-photo shoot in this ideal location!

Azriel loved the Chinese lanterns growing back here... and Ben was nearby to help navigate some of the unsure footing.

I was loving the broken down brick wall crawling with wild grapevines... I would totally have claimed this as my fort if I lived here.  (And yes, a poncho does seem to hide 5 months of baby brewing going on in that pot)!

Back to Azriel, her entire outfit is thrifted.  The coat was one of my favourite all-time finds for her wardrobe - covered in mushrooms - yes please!!  It's a reversible jacket, and the sleeves even zip off... and I don't know who makes it, sorry (no tag inside).

A perfect coat for hunting treasures in the woods.
A perfect location for snapping shots of my treasure.
And it's Thursday.. so that means we're hopping over to Mama Loves Papa to link up with other cute kids and their cute outfits!

P.S...  I do believe that tomorrow's post will reveal our 'baby bumps' gender!
Come on back and see what 'fashions' await the next egg in our nest.

Thanks for stopping in!

  3. Very cute mushroom top!
    Chinese lanterns totally remind me of being five. They grew in my mum's garden. And the name - so evocative and exotic. I love them so much.
