  5. Millie,
    I somehow missed these little cuties when I was young...or I'm just so old that I don't remember them.

    Happy Friday!

  6. Oh these are too cute! I always loved the 'big,bad,Banksia Man'! I'm new to blogging but have been a terrible lurker for a couple of years and always look forward to your posts. I too have a 70's/80's style house with exposed brick and far too much stained pine panelling. I've loved watching what you've done to your place and get a lot of inspiration from your pics. Tell Moth he's doing a great job ;-)

  7. Very pretty posting Millie, but I think you've left us europeans perplexed. I'm off to take a crash course in gum nutters!

  8. Millie, Those Baby Gum Nuts are precious. Reminds me of my childhood. I had these CHILDCRAFT books. To this tay I have never found any books as magical.
    I think there were 12 books.
    It transported me to beautiful places.

  9. What beautiful images Millie, just lovely.

    Hope all is well with you and's the bathroom coming along?!

    Have a lovely week-end :) xo

  10. Gosh those flowers are amazing! What are they? Stunning colour. Haven't seen anything like it in UK. Gorgeous. x

  11. Beautiful Mille...and a very Happy Gumnut Weekend to you too!

  12. Happy weekend dear Millie, and yes, loved the Gum Nut Babies,... so cute.


  13. Little gumnuts - such a pretty name and all. The pink flowers are simply exquisite.

  14. Hi Mill's,
    I've never seen or heard of a Gum Nut Baby. They are obviously an Aussie thing as we don't have Gum Tree's here in the U.K. so, they wouldn't have anywhere to live !!
    I think that I would have loved them as a child. They look so cute and cuddly. Were they all good or was there a BAD Gum Nut baby ?...and, were some of them naughty ? I'd like to think that there were some naughty things going on !!!! XXXX

  15. I love those little babies ... and I especially enjoyed reading them to my girls when they were little.

    I love those blossoms!
    Have a great weekend.

  16. Your post is so sweet ! lovely babies ! Have a great week-end !

  17. Those little gum nut babies are so cute. Millie this is the weekend we start our family room makeover.The old brick bar is gone bring in the paint.Be prepared for me to bore you too death with photo's.
    Kind Regards

  18. WHO are those delicious little flower and acorn wearing chubsters?! Obviously I missed out on their antics all my life!

  19. So Cute
    and the color of flower is gorgeous.
    Hope you had a lovely weekend, Millie.
