More of a beautful range ...and a giveaway to celebrate X

On Sunday I went to the Craft Expo in Brisbane really just to have a really good look at Miss Rose Sister Violet. I already stock a small range of their beautiful whimsical vintage inspired lovliness but wanted to see more of the range up close and personal.

I should have stuck with ordering on line because what happened ? I came home with a boot full of the most wonderful items to stock in mimmis....OMG ! OMG ! OMG !

I also sat in on a one hour presentation by Miss Rose herself and that was even more inspiring ! Did anyone else go to the presentation ?

See something you love ?

Once I get 20 new followers to my blog (265) I will post something gorgeous from the Miss Rose Sister Violet range to a lucky commenter on this post. So leave me a comment and tell me if you have helped me get some new followers ! I can guarantee the gift will be something truely lovely that will make you feel warm and fuzzy and special X O

Fire in my belly !

Good Morning friends, Hope your day is filling with creative stuff, UFO's or whatever you are working on today !

My shop is inspiring me to be creative as more and more people come out for a look at what I am doing and thankfully liking what I have on display and to sell. Necessity is a driving force for me too. Lucky I am loving my new world at mimmis. So far , there hasn't been one day since the 11th November when I haven't felt like going to work!

Yesterday a new shipment of lovely well priced cottage plants, including some herbs arrived. These add a lovely country feel to the front of the shop and I am enjoying the conversations that spark from every purchase of these plants. ( love a good chat! LOL ) The same lovely lady who brings the plants also makes country teapot cosies that are very popular.

News about The Handmade Expo Craft Re-stash....
We were inundated with donations for the Craft Re-stash and appreciate all the support very much. Now has come a time where people in need seem to have dropped off considerably and we need to think about what to do with the left overs. So we are now putting a call out for community groups, schools, kindergartens, day care centres to come in and get some things they might need. Fill a couple of bags and help these groups out before we have to move the donations on to another venue.

Dont forget the next Handmade Expo is on Saturday 19 th March, getting bigger and better every month !

Marching on.....

I cant believe it's March already ! The first day of Autumn, still feels like summer to me !

The start of a new month to me means re-assessing, re- focussing.
I think recovery from the floods for me is almost over.
I have spent part of the day going through some " stuck together receipts"
I found and can you believe they were still wet ?
Now to get the smell of floods off my hands ! LOL

I have been showing off some bigger and different things that I stock in my shop, " mimmis".
Just to let you know that not only can you find the whole bubbachenille range, as well as about 25 different other " handmadies" lovely things in mimmis but also lots of vintage goodies, large and small, quirky too some of them !
Mr bubba is the vintage buyer and comes home with all sorts of things. Like one off hubcaps, and old castrol oil bottles being two of the most memorable.
I screwed up my nose at these items when he gave them to me, both sold, so now I dont say a word !

You can check out my photo albums on facebook here or look at ebay listed items here.

What does March mean to you ?
