4 Bible Verses That You Should Think on Daily

Image
I love the Bible. I love that you can find answers to every question you could ever have in the Bible. It was designed to be our manual for life.

In my room, I love to write out Bible verses and stick them up everywhere so that I can look at them and be reminded of God's truths.

Whilst reading in Kristen Clark and Bethany Beal's second book, Love Defined, last night, I decided to stick some new verses up.
In the book, Love Defined, Kristen and Bethany share these verses and how they impacted their own lives and so I chose some to use for myself.
These verses are great, life-changing, impacting truths that we should be meditating on often.



So here are four (out of many) Bible verses that you too, should be glancing at daily and meditating on.

Author Q & A with Kara Linaburg!

Image
Hello, darlings!

Today I am here with a very exciting post, where I am interviewing author Kara Linaburg in honour of the release of her first book The Broken Prince, earlier this month.


In all the fairy tales the maiden falls in love with the prince...but she has to remember that this isn't a fairytale.

I asked Kara some fun questions and here she is answering them. All the info on her book, blog etc will be linked at the end of this post!

Hannah: Hi Kara, I'm so glad to have you here on my blog! Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions about your brand new book. I'll start off by asking you to tell us a bit about yourself!

Kara: Hey Hannah!!! Thanks so much for having me-- I'm so excited to do this!
So yeah, hi I'm Kara Linaburg, going by Kara Lynn in the internet world. I love deep conversations, good books, and making friends and as cliche, as it sounds, walks on the beach...or mountains or basically nature.
My love language is time and when pe…

7 Indoor Plants I Want To Own

Image
Recently my sister and I have been obsessing over gardening and plants, poring over the plant section at the library and perusing the local nurseries.

While the weather was still warm, we spent time outdoors in our gardens, but now as it is colder, I have been thinking about growing my indoor plant collection.

Having a vase of flowers or a living plant in your space really does add life to it. It feels fresher and happier.

There are also health benefits to having certain plants in your space. Many plants clean the air around us, making it better for us to breathe.

These are a few of the plants I hope to add to my current few!

F i d d l e  L e a f   F i g I don't know what it is about this one that I love! It is just a really cool looking plant, with its big shiny leaves. I am not sure where I would put this one if I got one but I'm sure I can find somewhere.
Fiddle's make a statement in any room.

My Favourite Thrift Finds

Image
Hello darlings!

I have been thrifting for a wee while now and have accumulated a "collection" if you will of thrifted items.

Thrifting can be a hit or miss thing. You may find a treasure or something that is simply had it's days.
It is a great way to save money, as you can find things that would have cost a lot but at the thrift shop, you can find it for a few dollars.

Here I am going to share the things that I have bought from thrift shops!

Let's start with the category I score in most often. Room decor.
I love decorating my space. I love making it my own and making it a cosy happy place for myself (and others! My Nonna found it a lovely, uplifting place to be when she stayed at our house around New Years and I let her stay in my room).
The most affordable way to decorate is by going thrifting and finding cheap but often good, unique pieces.


First of all, this pressed flower wall art. Even though the flowers are faded and yellowed I still think it a beautif…

May has been a pretty good month, with glorious Autumn weather. It has been warm, sunny, and the leaves have been softly falling everywhere.

Books


A Rose for the ANZAC Boys by Jackie French
Those of you who have been around here for a while might remember me talking about this book before. This was my second time reading A Rose for the ANZAC Boys and it certainly won't be the last!
I loved it just as much if not more this time. It is so well written and captures the pain, tragedy, and loss of World War 1.
Movies and books seldom make me cry, but I teared up a tiny bit when reading this book.
I can't recommend it enough and I really must get my own copy to display on my shelf!

Of Fire and Lions // Book Review

Image
Hello darlings!

It has been a hot minute since I've written a book review for you and I am glad to be sharing one today.

I had seen this book getting a lot of hype in the bookish community I am part of on Instagram, so when I saw it sitting on a shelf in the library I decided to give it a go.
This was my first time ever reading a biblical fiction novel and also my first from the author Mesu Andrews.

So what did I think? Let me tell you but first here is what the book is about.

• • • • Back Cover Synopsis
"Belili wears her children's disdain like a heavy cloak. The weight of their contempt threatens to crush her spirit, but she has perfected the art of survival.
She learned it when she escaped death nearly seventy years ago after the Babylonians ransacked Jerusalem and took its finest young people as captives.
Years later she survived among idol worshippers and in King Nebuchadnezzar's court by donning an identity that shrouded her with guilt and shame.

She's kept secr…

Flowery Books ~ Flowering Fridays

I was at a loss for what to post today for Flowering Fridays, and then I decided to chat a bit about some of my favourite flowery books I've found.

As a photographer myself, one thing that attracts me to a book is stunning images. And these books all fit that requirement!

My sister and I can't stop flipping through this one and staring at all the gorgeous photos of many types of flower. We want to save up together and buy it!
Along with the stunning pictures, Erin has also provided a ton of tips and information on growing, caring and harvesting the rewards of your flower garden. There are vase life tips as well so you can get the most out of all your blooms!

This one is also absolutely stunning. The photos are by Georgianna Lane who is a super talented photographer. She brings out the best in the dahlias of this book.
Dahlias are becoming one of my favourite flowers…
