~ Bunnies ~

These little lovelies are what Ive been working on this past week, what do you think ? so cute aren't they,the boy bunnies little dungarees are made with vintage Laura Ashley nursery rhyme fabric,  I think its so pretty and the little girlie bunnies dress is also vintage,found on my travels :) These bunnies were made with calico,but next time I think I might use Linen.Any way there's a Que forming to use my laptop,so I'd better go the daughter is asking when is it her turn !!!! tata!! for now x Manda x

~ Bargain Finds ~

Just remembered about my lovely new finds,thought I would post about them quickly as It's nearly midnight and I seem to need a bit more beauty sleep than I used to.My hubby's saying I don't ha-ha what's he after,I'm still not good with compliments,anyway back to the new crocks ,new to me if you know what I mean.I managed to find TWELVE trio's of the lovely cottage design all for a bargain price,and four trio's of a really pretty pink floral design ,what do you think ??pretty aren't they .Ive put them on a painted  wooden tray in my kitchen till I find them a permanent place.

This year's school holidays we must have visited most parks in a twenty mile radius,honestly I'm not exaggerating (well  maybe a little bit ) seen the great many beaches of the north east (weather allowing ) and had more picnics than any teddy bears put together,so many in fact ,that Ive got  sandwich making and food on the go down to a fine art,not bragging honestly :).And on the crafting front Ive managed to get quite a few things made,so happy happy all round.One particular great day out was with good friends Stu and Claire and there gorgeous boys, we went to St Mary's lighthouse at Whitley bay,it was a very breezy rainy day ,not our usual August weather but hey ho it was a really good day with great company and you can't get better than that can you?
