Hello Friends, A Handful + 1 = A Week is something new I’m starting on our blog.  Sit here beside me and I’ll tell you about it.

Comfy?

I wanted a way to easily share our week with you (like sending a quick postcard!) and so I thought it would be fun to post 6 photos once a week which sort of wraps up the highlights of what has happened here in the preceding 7 days. We are all about HANDS ON here at Stanton so the first photo will always be a handful of something. My idea grew from something that Pip Lincoln who I already told you about in my Winter is Dead post, does on her blog (1+4=life) which is a way to share our week in her online group.  Here goes…

A little resting devil also at Bonorong which we visited on Sunday. So adorable but next to a sign that says ‘WE BITE’
