Ingrid Weir’s blog and instagram were two of my most favourite online discoveries of 2012… if you’re not acquainted with her creative corner of the interweb at The Old School Master’s House yet, get ready for your next major bloggy crush! Ingrid is a set and costume designer living in Sydney and her site catalogues her incredible hobby and passion – renovating an old schoolmaster’s house in a nineteenth century Gold Rush town in New South Wales’ Central West. Owing to her naturalist’s eye and lyrical sensibility, Ingrid’s photography and prose is unique, curious, warm, and winsome. What I love most is seeing the things I love about Australian country life through her lens.
