1. Pom-pom making! Every gift deserves to be topped with a pretty pom-pom. Don't you agree?
2. Gift wrapping.....a little Secret Santa surprise. I bought the gift tags from here.
3. Delicious homemade Gluten and Dairy Free Rocky-Road for all of my sweet lovin' family and friends. I made the little gift tags from scraps of fabric that I just couldn't part with.

Merry Christmas and much love for 2012 x

Excitement + Thrifted Finds!

1. Falling in love with seam.  It's full of pretty things, inspiring peeps and is printed on lovely thick matte paper.

2. So.....was beyond excited when I spotted my little Pear Shaped Pincushion amongst the pages! Thanks seam.

3. Some lovely thrifted treats. An embroidered tablecloth with matching napkins + some crochet doilies.

I hope your Monday was a happy one! x

The Weekend.....

1. Cupcakes for a special friend. I made my own little heart shaped cupcake toppers with some toothpicks and scraps of felt! So sweet and easy!

2. My girls + a selection of sweet treats + a birthday to celebrate = a lovely Saturday afternoon!

3. A gift from my little brother. His latest wood carved creation.  Mr. Rustic Reindeer.  He has found a comfortable new home next to our Christmas tree. Welcome to the family Mr. Reindeer!

I hope your weekend was full of love, laughter and sweet treats shared with friends x

'Tis the season

1. Friday afternoon was spent decorating our new Christmas tree and listening to festive music. Blake didn't complain about the music at all. Ha!

3. A Fossick Handmade Christmas. Can you spot the moose & bird 'Winking Girl Pillow'?

Happy festive season lovelies! x

i heart thrifted finds.....

1. The most beautiful blue vintage plastic clip-on earrings.  I think I'll turn these into a brooch or perhaps even a ring. These were spotted by my dear Mum.

2. The sweetest little thrifted dress. Complete with colourful floral embroidery. LOVE!

3. A collection of some of my favourite thrifted finds.

I hope your week has been a beautiful one so far!

Pretty Things

1. Pretty cake stands made from thrifted plates and vases.  I saw the tutorial for these in peppermint magazine. The perfect Christmas gift for the cake loving ladies in my life.  This crafty lady was behind the peppermint tutorial. Her work and blog are such an inspiration!

2. Pretty Christmas tags from 'The Library Shop' at the State Library of Queensland.  Yesterday was such a lovely day, a trip to the GOMA Christmas Markets, a browse through The Library Shop and The Gallery Store and lunch with a special friend.

3. A pretty thrifted teacup from my sweet Mum! She knows me well!

I hope your weekend has been a lovely one and the week ahead is even lovelier x


1.The cutest little vintage tutu I ever did see. It is a size 1 and I think it would make a perfect 1st birthday party dress. Thank-you ebay.

2. I was so delighted to see some of my pillows featured in a new DIY decorating book. The pillows in the linen cupboard are moose & bird. Yay!

3. One of my pillows was also featured in the gardening section of the same book! Double Yay!

I hope you are having a lovely Thursday x

My Week So Far.....

1. Bits + Pieces on my inspiration board. The crochet pot holder is a new find.  I picked it up for a mere $1.00 at my local thrift store. A quick napisan and it's as good as new! I adore the colours and the wonders of napisan!

2. The beginning of our bedroom makeover.....a letterpress print from BESPOKE letterpress boutique. Their online shop is full of lovely things! And their blog is pretty special too!

3. A gift from my little (I should say younger) brother.  His latest wood carved creation. Such a talent! This guy will be making his home above our TV.

I hope your week has been a sweet one so far. Lots of love x

The Weekend.....

1. An early Christmas present from a very lovely lady. Vintage trims, yes please!

2. A discovery in the vegie garden.....our very first cucumbers.

3. Mum and Grandma have been busy making lovely crochet flowers.  Now, what to make with them? The Sparrow and Mushroom pattern behind the flowers is from the paper shed. I can't wait to make these!

I hope your weekend was full of fun and adventure. Have a beautiful week x
