100th post & a little suprise

We made a little hut today...the sun was shining, the lawns were mowed & to be completely honest it's the first time in ages that I've sat down with the kids at their level & played 'with them' rather than them 'playing' with me (eg: helping me cook, sew, domestic stuff ra ra ra ra.....)
I had lots of fun peeping at the sun through the sheets & listening to the garden. For Imogen it was mostly about the food...!
Now, for a little treat to celebrate my 100th post I'm going to give away a little parcel of surprises. Yes if you're into a complete mystery envelope then enter below.....just leave a comment, any old comment, no conditions. Feel free to leave a book or film recommendation, perhaps a song your enjoying at the moment? maybe an inspirational blog or web site??
Happy days!!! whoop whoop

Wedding bells

My baby sister was married in the weekend, I had the lovely honor of being her bridesmaid (that's moi on the right) Twas a beautiful day with fantastic weather, a miracle considering the week we had had! The sun Gods sure shone for her garden ceremony amongst the roses.
Two very proud little flower girls were Anya & Fleur..xx
Hope your weekend was just as lovely.

Little doings

I have had a little SHOP update (at long last)
Please feel free to pop on over for a little look.
I'm on the prowl for Kiwi made & second hand pressies for the kids for Christmas.
Any suggestions/ sites/ DIY ideas welcome!
Hope you're all enjoying the week...despite the hectic weather!

Old Sew & Sew...& So....

New slippers & top for Ginny
Feeling rather a little more productive round here this week (quietly says whoop whoop to one's self)
Lots of little pairs of bidibids. An obsession with cotton lawn that I've been channeling through baby knickers & summer tops. I'm still panicking as I only have two weeks left, but fingers crossed I'll have enough.
I'm hoping to have some more birdy mobiles made, as well as some more soap & baby bottom balm......I need one of those time machine's off Harry Potter....


Mrs Bunny rattles.
 I've been whipping up some smaller goodies to sell as stocking fillers
embroidering their little faces was lots of fun.
Actually my mind is in total over load with ideas flowing left & right.
I find myself thinking away at night, which inevitably turns into weird dreams & even weirder sleep talking. last night I was ranting about someone from Taihapi stealing all our wood for making spoons......Hmmmm
Lots of little baby knickers.

Lots of little tops.
 I've also had a little fun making new labels for 'stuff'
A little gift from my lovely xxx 
 Now for a bit of random ranting:

*I really like THIS song at the mo...
*I'm finally on PINTREST...more distractions,
only inspirational ones which I can justify...somehow?
*I found a COMPLETELY rotten banana & mandarin in Alex's bag when I put his lunch box in there yesterday.
I don't get why this doesn't bother him?
*Fleur managed to get a peppermint stuck up her nose the other morning on our way to Kindy. Why do you always seem to have one child that tends towards these type of situations?
I can add this to the list which includes her head being stuck in the news paper stand at the post shop and getting a toffee pop stuck vertically in her mouth!
Yes it looks like two alcoholics on the couch! All being entertained by Imogen's new facials...halarious!

Home Birth Babies

Last week was Home Birth Awareness Week. Imogen was my first home birth, it's funny how sometimes I forget she was born in the lounge, just behind where I'm sitting right now.
There is a wonderful wee group of like minded Mama's in the mighty Manawatu who organized all sorts of stuff during the week, me being rather a slack home body only made it to the film 'the first cry' at our local boutique cinema. It was a very enlightening movie. Amazing how we often don't realize how birth is so incredibly different for various cultures.
whip on over to this Face Book page for an awesome non-profit group of woman sharing all sorts of useful info about babes, birth, & loads of great other 'stuff'.
