rich in life


Last weekend I came home from a school reunion in Tamworth, feeling rich in life. This weekend it was business as usual, with domestic goddess duties on Saturday, and on Sunday hanging out in the neighbourhood with the G.O., amidst the treasures of inner city life.



About EllaDee's

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. From time to time I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone. Copyright 2011-2017. All content of,, & is copyright.

    • The sculpture appears to be made of concrete of some sort. We love the remnants of the old signs – it’s great that one is intact even though faded 🙂

  1. Wonderful captures, as always, EllaDee. Some of that street art is really beautiful, though I especially liked the Goodrich sign. Taking an elevated train into/out of The Loop, there are a a few similar signs yet visible, a couple only came to light when an adjacent building was demolished for whatever reason. Scanning for them during my commute was infinitely more preferable to mulling over the work day.

    • Thank you – I love discovering the old signs, either in a new neighbourhood, or as you say often the case when an old building comes down. The BF Goodrich sign is in a private yard but on a main highway I drive regularly but unitl we walked past I hadn’t noticed it 🙂

    • The wonders of photography… the day was glary… i wasn’t sure if the image would come out. Those old signs are like little time capsules.
