Some well deserved thankyous

I've been a little bit slack lately with showing and telling about all of the lovely things that arrived in the mail lately.

I'm still in that 'grey fuzzy not quite homely' state - which when translated, means that I keep moving furniture around because I haven't worked out the perfect home for every piece just yet.

To facilitate the constant moving of furniture, I completely stopped unpacking boxes (figuring that the less I put away, the less heavy the abovementioned pieces of furniture will be when I move them).

Yesterday, I actually managed to take some photos to play show and tell.

To begin - the lovely Miriam from BubbaChenille sent me some gorgeous teatowels. They've been washed and ironed and ready to be transformed. This is just one of them.

I won a giveaway over on Kat's Creations last week. I have a bit of a beret obsession, and now that it's coming up to colder months, this will be absolutely perfect! Thanks Kat. It's more grey in real life but I don't have the good camera at the moment so everything is being washed out by the flash.

I received some more lovely tea towels in the mail from Jodie at Ric Rac with some sweet little selvedge key rings and a gorgeous card.

I have made myself a new little spot in the craft space for the selvedge collection just for Jodie!

Now onto some craft shopping - I couldn't resist this gorgeous bag from Cass at Snailblazer.
I have two boxes of handbags that are yet to be unpacked but I just had to have this one too!


I'm trying to stick with handmade for birthday pressies this year so I picked up these cute little ribbon streamers from Silly Gilly. These are for a friends daughter who will be turning three in May. I actually want to put them on and run around the garden myself (you'll be happy to know that I resisted the urge).

nice stuff! I have a bag of selvedges that I'm saving to send to Jodie too :) I wish I had some cute tea towels to send to you! I keep my open when I'm out but so far I haven't found anything

those streamers look like so much fun. enjoy the easter break. Hopefully it will give you some spare time to find permanent slots for your furniture.
(yes I know, spare time, what is that ? lol)

Kat said...

I'm glad you like it!

I have wonderful visions of you running around the yard, streamers flapping in the wind. Run free CurlyPops, run free.

See you tomorrow!

Those streamers are awesome!!!! I definitely would not have been able to resist running around with them - probably doing some flashdance moves :P

Haha, love Tinniegirl's comment! Yep, would have had to do it too. was thinking of you today, went to The Lighthouse, thought I'd walked into a church! Then found some nice pillowslips at the back, and shopped under the loud rain on the roof. Check out Salvo's Hoppers ASAP, they have Metallicus long sleeve tops, $90 down to $6, great for winter under t shirts etc. May go back tomorrow.....

oh i love the hand ribbons, just a little twirl around the courtyard wouldn't hurt...you can always say you had to test then out for strength and durability...

Seriously don't know how you resisted the urge. Your're a stronger woman than I, Curly.
