Plain and cosy

I made this little cosy, it looked sweet but lacked somewhat

Later that evening, I added this

Much better

Lumar made me make it

Limey saw something very exciting on a blog recently - she saw Lumar, her long lost brother. The story goes that they were captured by hunters,  separated and shipped off to gift shops around the zoo / museum circuit (it is an underground trade just posting this puts us in danger shhhhhh)....After her initial delight, Limey noticed that Lumar, her brother who had scored himself a beaut new home with one of my favourite bloggers Joyce, had also scored himself a beaut new blank. Soooooo.....

She looks pretty wide eyed happy about it doesn't she?!

Things I am loving.....

Joining in with Paisley Jade to share some things I am loving this week

Thrifted vintage earrings

Thrifted silk scarf that is begging to become a fabric flower brooch

Building a family gallery

Angus' appreciation of our new million dollar vacuum cleaner

New novelties to grace the shelves in our family room. 
Like a place card really - come to think of it I think I may be 
label crazy, I promise I will seek help when I put a "toilet" sign 
on the bathroom door! 

After having an awful stomach bug that knocked us flat for 24hours 
I am loving feeling well and hearing happy noises in the house today.
I am loving milder temperatures this week, sunshine and clear skies has
had an incredible effect on my state of mind.

What are you loving this week?

Did I tell you?

Did I tell you that I actually won a give away? !!!!!
I was, am still VERY excited!
I won the give away from Leonie's Blog : Seven Cherubs (see my blog list and 
drop by to see her.  Leonie has lots to say about keeping things real, I love that)

I won some lovely eye shadows for Ragged Blossom Beauty
A lovely little package arrived : in a gorgeous sustainable styled patterned paper wrapped, machine stitched.

One is a bronzey brown colour and the other is a beautiful steely blue colour.
They are beautiful and silky to apply and there are no nasties in them.
Rarely would I consider giving a plug to a product but I am with this product as
it has changed my view on mineral style make ups. Go over and check out Lindy's 
range, if you have any questions I have no doubt Lindy will look after you well.
