Today the small vikings and I did our rounds and we had some great surprises. At the post box we collected a package and inside was this: the sweetest card and a Happiness Kit from Kelly at Little Bubble and Tree. It was a Thank You for a great time at Magnolia Square. Thank you Kelly, your card will go on my pin board of ’special cards’ and I really need the marble cause sometimes I do think I’m losing mine.
Next on our rounds we called into the local St Vincent De Pauls (op shop/thrift shop) and found a cracking summer skirt for $6 and a collection of great Madeline videos. I may be the only person left who has a video player. We also met Mr Shepherd, Miss D’s Kindergarten teacher who was fossicking for crystal things for his daughter. Miss D couldn’t wait to tell him she had had a Shepherd’s Pie for dinner. Then we passed up a Chartruese velvet bedroom chair. The Viking would die.
Finally I wanted to share a pretty name ‘Josefin’ – flying off to my dear friend Kim in Stockholm. It is one of two for her friend who has just had twin girls (Matilda not pictured). Enjoy your weekend everyone.
Yesterday, Master L, Miss D, Miss H and I had a big adventure. We visited Flower Power because we wanted to use a special Wedding gift voucher from our lovely neighbours and we decided on this gorgeous white glazed Strawberry pot, and some punnets of strawberrys too. It is lovely weather in Sydney today, so we are going to plant it up this afternoon. We are even going to use our own compost mix from our Tardis compost bin (made from an old turned up-side down garage bin (so resourceful!).
Underneath is the only snippet I could find of my all time favourite paper, and I have seen some in my four years of Paperklip. It of course has little strawberries on it and it was one of the first sheets I ever bought. Yummy.
Tommorow we are going to put our best shoes on and celebrate our little niece Indianna’s christening. Her special gifts courtesy of 3 lovely Magnolia Square vendors -
I am especially looking forward to lunch.
Thank you too everyone for your lovely comments on the Fair.
What a great time was had by all at the recent Magnolia Square market in Sydney.
Here are a few images, even I have popped up in there, and those 2 girls are my very own Miss D (left) and Miss H (right). They are very happy with their book ‘Who’s Hiding’ from We heart books! who were there too.
Miss D and I are off to Melbourne tommorow to do a special project with My Child magazine. We are very excited and will keep you updated. Klip, Klip!
24 hours to go to this fabulous shopping event in little old Sydney.
Lots of cutting has been done in preparation, and lots of new things to see.
Come along and say hello to Paperklip if you have time.
