My Place and Yours....

my favourite watering can from my husbands grandfathers sacred shed
my beautiful slice dish that my grandmother got for her 21st she gave it to me 2 years ago, when I told her how beautiful it was. Such an amazing inspiration in my life.

inherited bits and pieces of various teasets

so much explanation about the history of this one.....
the old wooden boxes also from my husbands grandfathers shed. they are treasured in my work room thankyou Jimmy!
an old hemming whatsamecallit measuring stick thingy and a tin spool of elastic from my grandma
gorgeous old thrifted wooden spools
and a thrifted cigar box up the top
this weeks theme picked by A boy's mummy
she has chosen, preloved, inherited or thrifted

my place and yours.....

my place and yours.....
the theme this week is YELLOW
not at easy one in my house
but I looked on the wall, and there was my beautiful
Mothers Day card still in the devine love heart that I was given.
I had to add the fly swat into the picture, the all expected gift from the mothers day stall at school!! they come with lollies made into a fly shape,
generally, though, the lollies have mysteriously dissapeared by the time parents receive the gift!!
I wandered into my work room to be confronted with my drawers
exploding with yellow also.
to check out more yellow spaces, be sure to pop on over to hello owl

bright eyed and bushy tailed.....

well, it is Monday after all.
despite being rather bushy tailed
she was not feeling bright eyed!! my little princess
every Monday morning
'mum, do we have school today?'
yes sweetie, it's monday
'mum, I don't feel well, I think I need to stay home'
not a morning girl
not a rules girl
my little scruffy non conformist.
oh, how can you not love that little cross face
and it will start all again tomorrow morning....

and the tears of laughter came rolling in!!

while mindlessly roaming the internet today I came across this website.
before I knew it, I was in fits of hysteria.
tears rolling down my cheeks.
so ridiculously silly and hilarious
well, I simply can't explain it.
you must take a look for yourselves.
obviously not to all senses of humour, but totally up my alley.........

katie scissor hands

you don't know how long I have waited for you
so the crazy lady fell in love with the scissors
but what amazing scissors they are!
I had to immediately find some fabric to cut and cut and cut and cut.
I knew it was these beauties being delivered today
when the delivery man pulled up, I couldn't contain my excitement, meeting him at the truck
then stupidly said 'what a big truck for such a little package'
I sure hope he didn't take that the wrong way hehehe!!!
