Sorry terrible photo, I just took it this evening so had to use a flash. Man that floor has seen better days, all the Gyprock dust (plasterboard) from the extension is a pain in the butt to keep out of the old bit of the house, especially here where the two join. He is a really cute horse though and makes neighing and galloping sounds while his mouth moves. It is a bit strange that it moves with the galloping sounds but anyway...I can forgive him for that.
Kylie from lucy violet vintage sent me a parcel in the post last week which included a Holly Hobbie quilt cover and pillow case. Kylie is so sweet she even washed and ironed them freshly for me. Little Miss is sleeping with the quilt cover on as we speak.
So cute when they are asleep.
Don't you love the Hobbytex she put in with the parcel. I remember my Mum and Auntie going to lessons when we were kids (in the 80s).
Thank you Kylie, you really are very generous. I am keeping my eyes open for something special for you. :)
Well, that's it for thifting. How sad is that and it's not through lack of trying! Maybe this week will bring some interesting finds, fingers crossed!!
The week (or two, or is it three?) that was:
Not a lot going on here at the moment. We didn't seem to be getting anywhere on the extension so I had to be a nagging wife. Well not really. I just had to say 'lets work out what we (meaning you dear husband) are going to start with next weekend' and we can put a plan into action. Guess what! We have action. The battens for the floor boards are going in and hopefully with an RDO this Friday and nothing on this weekend we should see some progress. It's a shame we didn't take into consideration the door heights when building (made them a little taller) but Mr M didn't want to do floor boards at that stage but later changed his mind. Hmm, oh well should be OK.
I would really love to be helping him but alas I am stuck with keeping Fingers McGee (little Miss) occupied. Hee hee, sounds like an excuse but really I do love to get stuck into some physical work, makes me feel like I am really alive! Might have to get some babysitters so I can help.
In other news...our little Koala friend is back again! We missed you!!
Of course I have to chuck in a kid pic!
My Melbourne shopping fund raising is slow but steady, not sure if I will reach my goal but I will give it a good go. June is coming around faster than I thought!
Hope you all have a great weeK!
