Elma Family Kitty Living Arrows Photography

Living Arrows 17/52





Happiness is an afternoon in the sunshine at Great-Gran’s house.

Because if it wasn’t enough that we have a Kitty and Elma sized monkey swing seat in our back garden for the girls to enjoy, it turns out that if you’re at Great-Gran’s house, she’s got a swing seat that fits everybody!

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life

Well, perhaps not the whole extended family, but certainly your sister, Daddy and a favourite cousin.  Although, if you kick the big people off you get even more space to play,



Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life and pull funny faces, Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life and have a really good swing!

And, when you’re at Great-Gran’s house, there are lots and lots of people to practice walking with! Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life

What more could any girl want?

    I want a garden so I can have a swinging bench, damn living in a flat! They look so pleased with themselves to have be on it!

    These are beautiful. What a lovely cute family you have here. I love the bench so cute to use as a photo location. The girls hats are adorable too. That last one is a framer for sure. #livingarrows

      Thank you, and so very true – all of my first cousins are older and I loved it when they came to play with us!

    Their little Easter bonnets are too adorable! x

    • Carie 29/04/2014 at 8:54 pm

      Thank you – they were an Easter present from their grandparents – they went out shopping together on Easter Saturday and came back with them – I’m told both girls immediately went for them and just couldn’t be persuaded to leave them behind!

  • Claire @ Great British Family 29/04/2014 at 12:51 pm

    Lovely photos, I want a swing like this!

    • Carie 29/04/2014 at 8:51 pm

      Thank you – I wouldn’t mind one myself either! It’s a right of passage for the seasons, the weekend that the uncles take Great-Gran’s swing seat out of winter storage!

  • Jess @ Along Came Cherry 29/04/2014 at 6:25 pm

    I used to love those garden swings when I was little! Gorgeous pics x

    • Carie 29/04/2014 at 8:46 pm

      Oh me too – my parents had a metal one with blue and red cushions and I was gutted when it rusted so much in the salty air that they had to get rid of it – I’d love one for our house one day!

  • Vikki Holness 29/04/2014 at 9:12 pm

    Beautiful photos, i’d love a swing like that in our garden! xxx

    • Carie 29/04/2014 at 9:18 pm

      From the sounds of things we all dream of swing seats!

  • The Mummy Dairy 29/04/2014 at 9:31 pm

    I remember spending hours on my gran and granddads swinging chair, whenever we visit the garden centre it’s the first thing my two head for.

    • Carie 29/04/2014 at 10:30 pm

      Oh me too – I love sitting in the really lovely luxurious ones that I could never afford just to feel wrapped in luxury!

  • Super Busy Mum {Debs} 30/04/2014 at 11:50 am

    Super beautiful photos and those little hats they wore? CUTE! #LivingArrows x

    • Carie 05/05/2014 at 1:34 pm

      Thank you – they’re definitely well loved and I suspect they’ll crop up in more than a few photos over the summer!

  • older mum in a muddle 30/04/2014 at 8:44 pm

    That’s so gorgeous – your girls are lovely, and that garden seat looks like a fab swing, especially if you’re under five. XXX

      Thank you 🙂

  • Emily 04/05/2014 at 2:31 pm

    There’s nothing nicer on a sunny day then to sit and swing on a garden swing! So cute #LivingArrows

    • Carie 05/05/2014 at 11:01 am
