There is a great store that my sister Nats took me to the other weekend called, “Nesting Bird Interiors” in Brisbane…I was excited to find some Belle&Boo badges so, so cute! Its so great to find a store that stocks beautiful, creative and handmade goodies…if your in Brisbane, check it out!
Ahhh….my new favourite book…Meet Me at Mikes: 26 Crafty Projects and Things to Make by Pip Lincolne
(check out: meetmeatmikes.com).
This book has great projects from all different bloggers, with patterns and easy to follow steps…
Its just perfect for a beginner sewer like me
My first project is the Super-Cute Tote, “make this bag and carry it cheerily through a daisy-filled park while humming Sunny Side of the Street…..” (Lincolne, 2009:74)
The bag pieces are all cut out and ready to sew…I’m looking forward to carrying this bag cheerily through a daisy-filled park!
On Saturday Dan and I were going for a bike-riding date and we rode to a garage sale that had a great trampoline going for only $20!!
We have wanted to buy Noah a trampoline for ages so it was a perfect buy! I love garage sales! Getting the trampoline home on an old mattress on the roof was hilarious – especially the looks from the fellow drivers as we drove very slowly home!
It reminds of how God always provides all that we need and sometimes gives us extra special gifts that blow us away…
Noah is loving this gift
Every good and perfect gift is from above…
While we were staying in Amsterdam if there was a ray of sun the locals were out on the canals bringing out their couches, beanbags and like the photo above even the kitchen table outside to enjoy the beautiful sunlight…
Since we arrived back home the weather has turned quite cold for Queensland, especially inside!
So today Noah, Dan and I each brought out our favourite chairs into the front yard to enjoy the sunshine and the warmth!
We arrived home from our wonderful holiday a few days ago now…slowly but surely the fog of mixed up days and nights of jetlag is beginning to rise…I thought I would share some photos of flowers I took in the Netherlands on my dad’s cousins Theo’s farm
