Life is about exchanges.
By me sharing my knowledge with you, my hope is that you pay it forward in one of the following ways.
Do something kind for someone. Share your own skills.
 Or, if you would like to financially support the content I create it is genuinely appreciated.

A new Postcard.

A new Fairy Wren Cottage Postcard was delivered to your inbox today. I’ve changed the layout a little, let me know what you think. It is always very appreciated when you send any feedback. Thank you as always for being part of the Fairy Wren Cottage Community. I don’t take it for granted. Have you […]

Popping in to let you know that next week I’ll be sending out my monthly newsletter called Fairy Wren Cottage Postcards. You only need to subscribe the once to receive it monthly and can then also download  my free ebooks as well. Until then, Jude x    


As Autumn unfolds.

I’ll be sending out my Fairy Wren Cottage Postcard flowery newsletter this week. If you don’t already subscribe then you can subscribe HERE.

Beauty in the everyday moments.

  Beauty in the Everyday Moments. In the garden. Pausing that bit longer to appreciate the dahlia’s as their second flush of flowers is coming to an end and marks the beginnings of them returning to the earth for the colder months. Checking on the hens, love how they afternoon nap in the warmth of […]


Tomato Season 2022.

A cold Spring. An unfinished Hothouse. Tomato seeds that started off slowly and went down hill from there. The ground not warm enough to plant tomatoes outside during that cold Spring even if we bought large seedlings or tomato plants. Waiting for things to warm up. Buying the last of the local growers tomato plants. […]


Homeschooling Posts.

    Just to let you know that I have archived my homeschooling posts. They are now going to be incorporated into a Homeschooling ebook. After homeschooling for 13 years and Liliana finishing year 12 plus a University qualification at the same time, well you could say that I do know a bit about homeschooling! […]


My Art Prints.

Good news! I think I have finally found a local Printing Company. They do museum, art gallery and book publishing standard printing of photos. When you buy one of my prints I want it to be the best quality available and on high standard paper stock. I’ll be sending off some of my work this […]


Beauty In The Everyday Moments.

    ~ Beauty in the everyday moments ~ Flowers in the dusk light. Picking Scarlet Runner beans. Sitting on the bench with Honeybee in her garden. Watching how she notices everything. Garden steps and a well used bird bath at the end of the day. The Indian Runner ducks waiting for me at the […]


Flooding & Food Growing.

It’s 4am Sunday morning and I have been lying in bed for the last hour and a half thinking about the 2 metres (yes, 2 metres) of rainfall parts of Australia have had since January. The very same areas that are experiencing that amount of rainfall also experienced the devastating bush fires a couple of […]


Fairy Wren Cottage Postcards.

I’ve been wondering how to move forward with Fairy Wren Cottage Postcards. Wanting to share them on a more regularly basis, but at the same time not wanting to clog up your inbox. How does sending out a Postcard to you once a month sound? My plan is to send out this flowery newsletter in […]
