why wouldnt you have a rockwall in your yard!?!

wouldn't you have a rockwall in your front yard if you could!?!
actually it is a base.
a highly dangerous base built from rocks a neighbour was getting rid of, stumps of wood from our old beautiful tree that had to be cut down, old boat oars, and everything else that could be scavanged for the effort!
of course, its for the girls too,
with a singing and dancing streamer twirling girl!
the base seems to grow each day

with what seems to be more dangerous booby traps!!
sling shots, catapults, you name it it's there!
be afraid, be very afraid!

well, at least the constant improvements and renovations keep them happy and occupied over the holidays. gotta love that!!!

a bit of bidding!

always a lover of a bargain!!
not often that I actually get one these days.
too busy to get to the opp shops
however have discovered across from where I work
there is an auction house!
so I have taken to popping over on a monday for a look,
put in my absentee bids
and sometimes oh happy days, I get the winning bid.
the gorgeous cabinet above cost the huge sum of $17
I paid a little more for this beautiful chaise, however,
have been after one for many years.
I then went straight to buy new foam for the new cover.
now to get to work on some comfy cushions to adorn it.
be sure to check out
for some other gorgeous thrify finds!

another little project for today!!
after collecting and admiring selvage's
for soooo long I came across this project yesterday on
how could I not give it a go.
I had an old calico coloured lampshade
which needed a touch of interesting
and here is the result.
I am so happy with it!
I may even have to move it somewhere it can be seen all the time!!!!


monday mini's

a little sneaky look at the monday mini skirts I've been working on today
some gorgeous retro fabrics
beautiful stretch denim
easy wrap style
only problem is they really don't photograph well.
they look so short and wide. must get someone to model them so they can go on the website when we launch it REALLY soon!!!
