I just had the best time at our local op shop and junk shop. First bit of excitement was these $3 Camper shoes. Oh my goodness. I thought at first that one shoe was missing a button until I put them together...love them! Maybe they will be my lucky, sewing shoes. (Kind of like the way footy players wear their lucky jocks on game day...hmmm...maybe not.)
Then I came across this dear little Holly Hobbie tea set. I thought I'd keep it in the sewing room for Rosie or Sunday to play with when I'm sewing. So cute. I am a sucker for anything like this...little ironing boards, tea sets, cradles, dolls houses... yes, I am a real Home Corner girl.
Next bit of excitement... I was just walking past Mumma Chooks little red cubby house & pondering what to do with her as her two eggs had not hatched. Should I try and remove them? Or just leave her...anyway what did I hear but some teeny, tiny cheeping sounds?!!! Yes, there nestled on top of her mumma was the cutest little yellow chick!!
Of course I raced inside to tell Mark (kids are all out today) and grab the camera. Back at Chook Central I spied another little fluffball - this one is black and yellow. Can you see it peeking out from under mumma?
Can you imagine the thrill when the kids get home? We haven't had our own little chickies before - I feel so...well...clucky!
As the holidays draw to an end I'm half glad and half sad. It's been a really good break this time and we have all had lots of fun, family time. (Yesterday was a bit hairy though as there was a fair bit of grumpiness but that's the only day we've had like that.) I am, however, a girl who likes a bit of routine so next week will be good too.
Oh, did I mention that during the holiday's I became an addict? Did that get your attention?! Yes, I am well and truly hooked by crochet. I blame Attic 24 for getting me addicted, her lovely, colourful pages of hooking really turned me on. Now I have a needle (hook) in my hand at any/every opportunity. Haven't tried hooking in the bath yet but give me time.
A few posts back I showed you my first project, Sunday's bright blanket of pinks, cream & green. Whilst waiting for Spotlight to restock I have started the next blanket, Lucy's, in blues, white, greys etc. It is so lovely working in these colours as they are very soothing. Oh it is FUN!! Check out Attic 24's tutorials if you feel like an easy, on the couch type craft activity. But be warned...once you start...
I'm off to Geelong tonight with friends for a fund raising dinner & then onto Mum's house to see the newly returned Charlotte!! Yay!! Can't wait to give her a big cuddle. Boy am I glad she is back. Sadly she won't be coming home this weekend as she has to settle back at school but at least I get to see her. What are you up to this weekend? Have a lovely one, x
