I am a tease aren't I ? Four little parcels and a gorgeous handmade card with a polka dot dress on the front and lots of lovely words inside, (thanks Tracey ), then the real fun began!
Oh I could smell something before I even started ! The most lovely lavender bags that look like tea bags with polka dot tags on the end and some real tea for later ! Tracey, how did you know lavender was my fave ? Too heavenly !
Next was this pin cushion cuff, I'll get a lot of use from this and there'll be less pin marks in my boobs as I sometimes kind of miss my shirt and go all the way though...(I love this..:) and I don't own one of these but have eyed them off on line and at markets so this is great ! Thanks Tracey !
Before I unwrapped I couldn't have ever guessed what this would be, OMGoodness, look at these cute as scuffs, they have a heavy denim on the sole and these are so cute, I think I'll enjoy these around the pool when we move ! (Thanks Tracey X :) As if this wasn't enough there were two other things wrapped up too but my camera kept over exposing , one was a gorgeous pre loved pillow slip with embroidery and tiny white dots and a vintage handkerchief also with...you guessed it dots over it.
Now to other serious stuff, Last week was so full on with getting ready for the market and all the usual busy stuff that happens when you are in the early stages of buying a new house and selling the one you are in, I had to get some help with market preparations ! Here's my new helper, after a very successful market just recently this helper has decided that maybe there is "something in what she is doing ! " and she's not just "hobbying" all day every day ! He was happy to help when I asked him !
And I'm trying to keep the house in some sort of order though all these preparations !
And we did have a great day at the Jumpers and Jazz festival in Warwick, actually it was a hoot !
Speaking of HOOT, I got this skirt for Winter from Bec over at little brown dog , they are pockets in the front too, all made from recycled blankets ! So warm!
Going to sew now!
