babushka love and the winner is....

AND THE WINNER IS...
A BITE OF COUNTRY CUPCAKES
i just love give aways! i have been lucky enough to win one myself before and it is a real thrill to know that something will be in the mail sometime soon. congrats to a bite of country cupcakes (i used a number generator here) please email me your name and address and your choice of egg (chicken, bunny or sheep) my email is lilijane at optusnet dot com dot au. yippee!!!
now onto some serious 'bushka' love. one of my work mates recently told me that there was a babushka t-shirt in the young womens section of 'tar jey' (target), i often sneak into that section hoping no young thang will glare at me and sniff in contempt. i was lucky enough to find this little beauty on the fringes of the section and raced away to the fitting rooms before anyone yelled out... 'stop that OLD LADY she has something from the wrong section of the shop'
isnt it sweet!
the best thing about it is that it has three babushka dolls.. one for each of my girls. we have decided starting left that they are MIA, LILI and CLAUDIA. i just love it!
the shirt inspired me to paint a little one in the hopes of actually making another one, one day. here is my effort of a water colour picture.
then the girls wanted one too...
the girls had fun adding water to these.
then after bath time i found this little rascal on the couch after some sort of tantrum.
so then the other two had to get in on the act...
dont you just feel like coming over and babysitting them??? he he he
ok i am off to mop the floors and bake something, and shine my halo :)
mmmmwwwaaahhh %*_*% rosey
this little fairy blesses you all with happy wishes.

Geeze me is the lucky one!!!
I love a giveaway and some when I see them I just "lust" them and yours was one!!!
We have been in Melbourne for the day and I was desperate to get back and see who the winner was!
It has been a really crappy week with fire threats at our backdoor and Hubby MIA with work and kids driving me nuts...
So I am rapt:)
Thanks so much you sweet thing!!!

Your babushka babies are very cute....Love the leg in the back ground at top of couch too!!!

Hmmm I think the "leg" is actually someones resting arm:) DOH!

I'll babysit (if you'll fly me over)!! Looks like fun, I could watch a movie and I'd be wearing fairy wings. Ain't nothing wrong with buying the PRETTIEST, COOLEST t-shirt I've seen in a long time!

Hey Rosey! Congrats to Kylie on her chocolatey win - I think I gained 5kg just looking at all that chocolate anyways! :0) Who cares which section the cute shirt comes from - it's got your name written all over it - and it's all about your mental age, not ACTUAL age, so ... No worries! The little babushka's on the couch look so angelic! Bet looks can be decieving, hey!! tee! Hee! Hee! That's the second recommendation for Ghost Town I've had, so maybe it should go on my "To Do" list. Hope you're having a great week - Bear Hugs! KRIS
