Death by Doxie : Extra Curricular
And this is why you won't see too many flat lays around these parts - the dogs think that if it's on the floor, it's theirs.  These photos are from a month or so ago, when the lovely folks at Extra Curricular magazine  sent me a few copies of their super cu...
These photos are from a month or so ago, when the lovely folks at Extra Curricular magazine sent me a few copies of their super cute and gorgeously put together magazine (payment in kind for an interview I did with Helena Leslie for their Messy issue). I'd just bought some gorgeous banksias, ...

I was in the garage, doing some task or other. Elfi was not in the garage, but - because she is my shadow - she wanted to be in the garage. The sliding door was open a crack, the light was magnificent, and there was that gorgeous little head, looking longingly in. Do you think I let her in?
