onto nicer news...i discovered this blog coloured buttons a few weeks ago (cant remember who recommended her blog, might have been christy from sweet tidings) and have been totally blown away by her creativity. you really should check out her matchbox Monday posts... really creative. anyhow, a while ago Trixie found a toy rabbit who needed a name. Mia decided that the bunny should be called Minty and that is exactly what Trixie called the rabbit. in gratitude for finding a name, Trixie sent the girls a gift each!! yes my little girls are winners too.
Trixie sent them a little poseable worm, each one is different and oh so cute. Minty had also included some shells that she had gathered while in the sea ( you have to read the post on this toy to understand, just scroll down till you find it) and we have added them to our collection of miniature shells. thanks Minty! each worm came with a tag and from memory... lili called hers ~Megan~ Mia called hers ~minty~ (she really likes that name) and Claudia called hers ~Olivia~
i had to hunt them down in order to photograph them, i found one wrapped around a tea pot, another around a mini vase and another in the arms of my wooden art doll. and when they aren't hanging around on the hutch they are....
thanks a bunch Trixie, you really brightened their day! i just love them, they make me smile and i like it when they get moved around the house.
now don't hit me through the screen but... i have won another giveaway!! i didn't mean to honest. i entered a few giveaways from sew mama sews may giveaway and i won a gorgeous tissue case and some buttons, i am overjoyed. do your self a favour and head over to sew funky and scroll through her posts. her vintage fabrics are to die for! thanks Dione you are a gem.
ok off to feed the sick one some bland toast and hope that vomiting doesn't accompany this bout of 'sicky bum' as we like to call it round here.
