Sweet Pea Fairy

The other week I won a blog giveaway over at Softearth's World, a gorgeous little sweetpea fairy on a swing. Evie has claimed her for her bedroom, she loves sweetpeas in the garden. She hangs up next to Evie's bed, thanks Marie!

Maia's Market

Wow, what a busy, and very successful day yesterday at Maia's Market! This photo doesn't show my whole stall very well, with the rack you can only see part of in the front there, but it was the busiest part
of my stall, and I came home with only about half of it left! It was the most sales I've ever done in a day, with lots of positive feedback. This market had a really nice vibe to it, and I hope to be part of it again. The market is run by a local school girl and her mum, raising funds for a children's home in the Philippines, they do a fantastic job.

New couch

A new couch arrived this morning. It's a bit bigger than I thought it would be! We bought it with vouchers that Andrew is given at work when he does a really good job (or something), it's nice to be able to put all the vouchers together and get something big that we can all share. It was getting a little cramped with all 4 of us squished onto the 2 seater (the new one is a 2.5 seater), and the buffet and hutch that previously occupied the space seemed a bit imposing on a small room, though it was good for storage. Now we need to put something on the wall behind the couch, I'd love some of these from Bonnie & Neil. Ampersand cushion is from Aunty Cookie.

Echino pants for Maia's Market

I've been making up a few Echino pants for Maia's Market (less than 2 weeks to go now). I love Echino fabric, and I think the linen/cotton blend is perfect for little pants and I will have a few skirts too. They are all sized 2+, being full length at about 2 years of age, and becoming cropped as the child grows.
Don't you love the colours?

I found Evie giving her doll a go on a flying fox. Kids come up with the funniest things! The doll's hands are pushed into the ends of a coat hanger, and she's tied some wool between her bed and a drawer handle.
