Blessed rains and a stylish weekend


Today the rains have finally arrived.  Those much needed and much loved soaking rains that usually arrive in autumn to break the dry summer are finally here. Welcome rain!

I had the most fun weekend working on a photo shoot for SBS Feast magazine's September and October issues.  This is a picture of a set up in progress.  I really love doing food styling and want to do more.  I'm currently putting a little portfolio together to showcase some of the work I've done to date.  I will show you when it's finished.

Meanwhile, with the forecast for rain all week, out in the weather is a hardworking wwoofer from Japan getting some jobs done in the garden bless her.  This week I see gyoza and okonomiyaki on the menu!  Pass the kwepie mayo please.

What's happening in your week?   What's on the menu at your place?

  5. It's rained here for three straight weeks...if I never see a gray rainy day again I will be a happy girl! My tomato plants are hanging on by their drowned roots. :)

    I love food styling and photography and can't wait to see your portfolio. I admire your photos because they have such a warm simple farmhouse feel to them...just what I love.

  9. Yum, Japanese sounds great! We've got lots of simple meals on the menu.... not much energy, and bleak weather brings soups and stews and bread and butter pudding! But might be inspired to try a bit of Japanese though!
