Hello and welcome to another week.......
Just wanted to share with you some of the things that are making me smile right now and bringing a touch of happiness and a smidgen of joy into the world of Sweet Birdy Love.
Op shop finds......for just a few dollars I came away with a bag of beaut vintage buttons.
Gorgeous colours and patterns.
Some lovely green vintage Ric Rac made in Czechoslovakia, still on the original card and for a few dollars more some great beads.
Sparkly, shiny, in lovely pinks, greens and amber.
I have plans for the beads, a little bit of play time over the holidays, fingers crossed and tongue in the correct position and hopefully I'll have something interesting to show you.....
Vintage buttons = JOY
Sometimes it only takes a couple of dollars.
Other times no money at all.......
Toadstool love is in full swing here.
These little specimens are 'growing' quite happily in the
Wild Wood of Silver Birches......
I'm predicting a few more might pop up here and there.
Fresh berries = JOY
Picked straight from the garden......
They are starting to slow down a little but there will be more in a few weeks time.
In the meantime they have been frozen, turned into jam, given away, eaten and enjoyed.
Christmas shopping was completed here over a month ago....
No fighting your way through crowds of shoppers.
No driving round in circles looking for a car park.
One catalogue, many gifts to choose from.
Giving to those who have little or nothing brings great JOY
Visit the website and browse through the catalogue you're bound to find something that will make a huge difference to someones life.
If it all gets too stressful take a leaf out of Tigger's book and 'chill out'......
I had my last market for the year on Saturday and I am
pleased to say it was my best ever ......
Consequently, I didn't have enough stock to hold my stall on Sunday at the local market.
But hey, I think that's a good problem to have.
Over the holidays I would like to try my hand at a few different projects and hopefully learn some new skills.
I will post the successes and hint at the failures....
Of which there may be a few,hehe.......
I have some wonderful things to show you next post.
Gifts from clever, talented friends who never cease to amaze me with their creativeness.
I will also be drawing the winner of my giveaway on Thursday morning as I have my breakfast.......
There is still time to enter if you haven't already, please read the previous post for details.
Till then take care,
