Oh Butterland



I am the total boss of my camera.  At last it's true! I can now use fully manual!  My years of struggle are over.  And that feels great!

That's just one of the amazing results I took away from my mini trip to Butterland for the Slow Living Workshop.   Thanks so much Luisa Brimble.  And the hilarious, down to earth, and super hardworking Beth Kirby, who also showed us how to whip up a southern pie crust with her fangers.  I also have a bit more of an idea about flower arranging thanks to Katie Marx, some new thoughts for incredible cakes and tasty salads from Fig and Salt.  Styling inspiration Stephanie Somebody and I could rustle up a batch of eucalyptus fabric dye for ya'll thanks to the sweet Rebekka Serle.   (Oh those gorgeous southern accents.)





I am also still dreaming about this stunning place where we had our welcome dinner and madly searching for an old butter factory of my own in Tasmania.  None for sale right now, but I shall keep looking.

I love these workshop events when you get to meet new people, see old friends and learn new skills in a truly beautiful environment.  I always walk away feeling incredibly nurtured and nourished.

And, as always, the best part is spending time with special friends, like dear Ruth and Kate.  But Butterland, I am really in love with Butterland.

  1. Sigh....don't we all need a Butterland in our lives? Sounds like the kind of inspirational workshops/classes that should be available all over the countryside and all year round!

  9. That whole visual feast just killed me a little bit because I'm so bloody hugely envious you were there and took these shots. Envy is so not nice, I know, but there you go. x
