Back to school..

Well, we have one confused puppy dog today as the kids have all headed back to school. Ruby can't figure out where all the noise and chaos has gone...she keeps wandering to Boo's room and back again...

Last year my lovely friend Alex, of Aunty Lily's Vintage Wares, needed some vintage sheets. I had a lovely time scouring the local op-shops for her and to say thanks she made me this beautiful pincushion. It was a wonderful surprise to get in the mail!

Beautiful lace!

Hoping to put it to good use sometime soon.

And under the category "things that amuse my weird sense of humour ", this is a headstone at our local cemetery. Every get that feeling that your family are just waiting for you to die??

Or alternatively, they may have buried him alive???!! 😳

And with that thought..hope you have a good week!

Christmas Swaps - Part 2

I love participating in my online groups Christmas Swaps!

For the ornament swap, I received not one ornament but four! These lovelies came from Vanessa at Piecing and Patching..

And Claire sent me these lovely items for the Secret Santa some chocolates which seem to have miraculously disappeared!

Aren't I a lucky duck!

Sorry I'm a bit late with this post - four kids and visitors , doesn't allow much spare time!

Have a great week!
