A tootle up to the Daylesford tip shop is always fun. I found this lovely old handmade pink dolls house this week & $5 later we were heading back home together.
It looks like it's been hanging out in a shed or attic for some time and is in need of some serious tender loving care. I love the little bathroom mirror and each room has different wallpaper, cute! I'm going to pull up the shag pile carpet and look for some carpet off cuts to give it a lift. Or I might just paint the floors white and add some rugs, painted on or fabric? Who knows. It's so much fun dreaming up what might be with this little house.
This weekend has been fun so far but I am also feeling a bit burnt out. It was a busy week and today's trip to Ballet-rat was exhausting for some reason or other. I'm feeling like I am doing such alot lately and am needing some quiet time.
To make myself feel better I started a kind of scrap quilt/bedcover today using some of the offcuts from Love Hearts & Blanket Bunnies, a few vintage hankies & other random bits & pieces. No actual sewing yet, I'm still working out what bits to put where. Anyway it was quite meditative & satisfying (even though there were five kids flying about the house, in and out to the garden, dogs wandering around and the odd chook squawking by the back door) & the only frustration was that I had to stop to make dinner. I'm looking forward to making this for my bed, all the different pieces of material make me feel good.
Another reason to smile is this fab book that my beloved MS Opshop offered up this week.
I adore these illustrations, the colours, the layout and
the everyday scenes depicted so endearingly. Love it.
Other happy goings on have been a mega dressing up session.
See my sleepy lion? Don't be fooled, she can be scary!
