- BRYN + DILYS -

I couldn't resist naming them.

This week the little pair were tucked in to an envelope with a kiss for luck and sent on their merry way to Wales. They have an important job to do in raising some money for Ty Gobaith Children's Hospice...here's hoping that they can help the children and families that benefit so much from the special work that the charity does. It was a pleasure to help out my lovely friend and amazing artist Janet Bell who is involved with TG10. I believe there is still some time to contribute (until 28 Feb) so if you wish to make a creative gesture head over to the website to request a postcard pack.

elsa...paddling pool days a-go-go.
dipping in and out and then ducking under the makeshift tent.
first tan lines...gorgeously scented jason.
3 freckles between your brows.

last week i really liked this photo of stella with her baby doll...so small against the garage doors.
always loving the discovery of a new-to-me-blog too :)

elsa...our peonies are practically the size of your head! almost collapsing under the summer rain.
so how could i refuse your request to pick a few this morning?

(i am quite blown away that we are at the half way point of this project. how about you?)

i really loved these stripey portraits from last week. i am at that point too of catching a glimpse in to the future on occasion of my girl as a grown up...it seems to only happen in the snapshot second that a camera can capture...a little bit heartbreaking all the same!

elsa...you tinker!joyful times taking your photo for a father's day gift. like we did last year.
but i really can't believe just how much you have changed in 12 months.
even more crazy beautiful and so full of character.

my favourite 23/52 was little icon lily! such a great pose captured.

having tried to update this post with the addition of the photo i doodled on and framed for elsa's daddy i seemed to go and loose the whole thing. grrrr...please forgive all the funny blogger spacing. i just can't seem to fix it!

but hey. happy father's day. ice cream is on the menu here!
