for those of you who don't know, Vanessa at a fanciful twist is hosting a blog party in the theme of 'a mad hatters tea party'. my girls are very excited as they remember last year when we joined her Halloween blog party. Linda has invited me to be part of her party (if she is well enough) and on Sunday the bonser girls are going to have their own party. so watch this space on the 27th of this month for photos of our party.
so this Saturday, 2 more sleeps, i get to go and play with Linda!! it should be heaps of fun.
as the week moved on i gained more strength and by Saturday i was ready to drive to the markets for our weekly fruit and veges. on the way out i spotted a stall selling reusable wall decals.... each one was gorgeous so it was a hard decision but for $13 i bought this....
isn't it sweet!! they had heaps more in different designs, but i thought this would suit the colour of this room and the the theme we are slowly creating in this space that technically is my 'studyio'. now if you promise not to judge my mess (remember i don't have a house cleaner and i work part time and i have 3 kids..) i will show you how it looks in this room...
i chose that wall as i can see it as i walk in and as i sit by the computer. yes that is my crafting table, it is in desperate need of a clean up, lucky i am on holidays as of next Wednesday. :0)
and here is the view on the opposite wall, my art from afiori and a fanciful twist and my family and friends inspiration board. i want to make a new inspiration board... i have an idea in my mind but i need time to find the materials to put it all together.
this little purchase made me feel happy and i would like to buy more of these as they are a very cheap way of changing a space.
on Thursday night we got a call from my father in laws partner to ask us to meet her at a local pub for a surprise lunch for his birthday which is actually this weekend. she wanted to have it ahead of his actual birthday so as to really surprise him and it worked. it was so funny to see his face when he saw us there and then give him a present, it took him about 10 minutes to realise that she had actually set it all up. anyhow it was so lovely to spend some time with them and micks brother and his little family. the pub we went to has a great space for children it even has a carousel that only costs $2 per ride or $1 when you purchase a book of 10 rides.
and here is their cousin Henry, this little fella is like a pocket rocket everything he does is at full speed! he was premature and spent months in hospital and is quite small for his age but that does not stop him or slow him down :0) the girls love him and he loves them especially Mia.
i think that is enough for now, i will be back with part 2... when i will show you my win from sewfunky and another mystery gift this time for the girls!!
p.s. do yourself a favour and visit the blogs that i have linked to, you will not be sorry.
