It's InstaFriday again! although I am doing mine on this very rainy Saturday morning. Heres my week!

We had some friends stay with us this week from New Zealand and they were making the most of the hot weather by keeping cool in the pool.

Just me hanging about at the park

Ella mega thirsty after her play at the park. Look at that gorgeous long tongue!

Mail Love From Plushka

A week or two ago Plushka was having a market night on her facebook page. I have admired her work for a while now and was dying to get my hands on a Plushka product. So I treated myself to a cute 12 flag mini bunting. I was super excited when it arrived in the mail. It is so well made and I just love the choice of fabric used. I have hung it up in my office between my Black Apple prints and it looks great!!

You can check out some more Plushka goodness here:

Every Friday over at Life Rearranged it's InstaFriday! a time where we all share those random moments captured on our cell phones! I discovered it last week and I thought I would jump in on the fun. So here is my week in pictures.

We took Ella for a walk to the shops and treated ourselves to an ice cream. She was lucky to get the last bit. Mmm bubblegum flavoured

Beautiful butterfly magnet on my fridge

Finished off a custom order of pocket friends.

Received my gorgeous bunting from Plushka!! So excited! Will write a separate post later about it

Currently we have 3 boys over on holiday from New Zealand staying with us for a bachelor week and they very kindly brought me my favourite licorice!! You can not buy them here so yay for me.

So there's my first InstaFriday! Hope you enjoyed.

Pocket Friends

I have been busy sewing up a storm for a custom order over the weekend. These two sweet pocket friends have stolen my heart! They are so cute. I actually timed myself when I made the bear and it took me about 4 hours! She is all hand sewn except for the body. I love making them though and seeing them come together.

Pattern is by the very talented Gingermelon

First post of the year

After taking a long break I have decided to come back to the blogging world. So HELLO again.

You might have noticed I am giving the blog a mini makeover. More simple layout and style which I am loving. I am no computer whizz but I am slowly figuring out how to do stuff.

I am working on a couple of custom orders at the moment. My zombie pirate dolls are still a huge hit. I have been thinking for a while now that I might make it into a pattern down the track. I have never written up a pattern before so it will be a fun learning experience for me.

Valentines Day is next week. The boy and I have a tradition of going out for dinner or a nice candle lit dinner at home. We don't go out and buy lovey dovey gifts because we have been together for almost 9 years now and it's the random gifts or thoughtful acts through out the year that count the most.

So what are your plans for the day of love??
