Love Fridays ...... love handmade shopping


I saw this beautiful Mellimoomoo Storybook Journal on the Handmade Help blog last week, so of course I just had to snap it up quickly. After all, the proceeds were all for a good cause!

I'm saving this to give to a friends little boy for his second birthday next month, with a packet of crayons or coloured pencils, so that he can scribble away to his hearts delight.

The ever so lovely Megan also sent me this beautiful bright floral teatowel. I'm having visions already, of a gorgeous tea towel apron and some cupcake baking!

Megan also included this stunning card which was made by her friend Kelly, who is another Byron Bay local. Kelly doesn't have a blog but she does have a website here with her contact details. If you're ever around the area, she has a stall at the Byron Bay and the Bangalow markets. The colours are just magnificent.....

38 degrees celsius forecasted for today.... moving van arrives at 8.00 AM - ugh what a day to move house!

Good luck with the move, you are super organised so I know everything will be fabulous. Hopefully you will have most of your moving finished when it gets hot. Thinking of you. Lovely tea towel, I'm still on the look out.

So it was YOU who got the journal! I was bidding on it on Ebay then it was removed and I was too late.
I"m glad it went to a good home.

Oooh, I've a couple of times on really hot days (35+). Not much fun, but I'm sure your sister will have a bottle of Pimm's (or beer) chilling in the fridge for laters!

Jo (sparkly green knickers) said...

Sorry, that should have said that I've moved house a couple of times on hot days!
