paddington bear

i feel loved by the universe.

last nights MadeIt email, made me super happy (see previous post) & today on my way to kinder drop off i said to myself "i must find another little old suitcase for our market stall " so after kinder pick up nina & i did our usual run to the post office to post the weeks online sales, go to our favorite bakery & get 2 choc donuts for me & a shortbread happyface for nina & then to our favorite op-shop.

SO todays thrifty find found me almost jumping up & down in excitement. an old cardboard style blue suitcase, complete with Paddington Bear stickers, rusty hinges (that work), few water makrs, the beautiful smell of vintage & lots of love

thank you universe!

wednesday handmade wonderfuls

how wonderful to be selected again as a Wednesday Handmade Wonderfuls seller. if you got the MadeIt email you will have seen me right up the top!!!
it hasnt been posted on the site yet (oooo.. i hope they dont change their mind)
the process of making these fab lil tags is (was) quite time consuming as the paper is very delicate & could not be just any old cut & paste job (hence the price) i had an absolute blast making them & super happy to see them be selected for MadeIt.
yay for me! it made my day

its tuesday & i cant wait.....

for it to stop raining so nina and i can go attend to our vegi garden. hopefully next week i will be able to show you how our seedlings & seeds are growing.
in the meantime nina & i have been cutting & pasting lots & lots of vintage wrapping paper (yes i trust my 3 yr old with scissors) and making sweet lil' gift tags. what i realy should be doing is making a mountain of cobber dolls, hair accessories, russian doll t's & bunting for VINTAGE SEW 'N' SEWS upcoming Mornington Market. we are meeting on wednesday at the local pub (the bridge in mordi) for some cake & a glass of bubbles to discuss set up etc...................
today we were hoping to make apple crumble & truffle balls........but after seeing the choc cupcake on ButtonsByLouLou blog i think we might make some of them instead

party animals

i have had a ball making these gift tags. all the animals are taking presents or flowers to the party, how perfect for gift tags. i managed to wrap a few of my madeit sales with this vintage paper, and then saw its potential as gift tags. they are available at mama made that as i thought they were very child like & suited the kids store & they are just so much FUN
