My place and yours - bedside

This weeks theme from Pottymouthmama is 'Bedside'. So here's mine. Just the usual Ikea lamp. A very geourgous bunny that we got from Hahndorf in the weekend. And my tiny bowl that my dear friend Judy brought back from one of her many trips abroad - this time Italy.

So many spots!

My tiny antique Kauri table was in dire need of a tablecloth. So I made this last week. Ever since Pretty Woman and that brown spotty outfit with the hat, I have had the biggest crush on spots! And the roses and guns look a little bit snazzy on it.

Brown Owls......

Had a lovely time at Brown Owls last night. We made these Owl brooches. My little guy is winging his way to the Blue Mountains. Thanks heaps to Cherry, Tracey and Cathy. Can't wait for our next session.

Komfy Kaftan

Not sure why, but I can't stop sewing! Whipped up this kaftan in preparation for hot times here in Adelaide. Put it to the test in the weekend, way too cold, but jolly 'komfy'. Sorry about the dodgey photo!

My place and yours - on the shelf in the lounge.

A great idea of Pips from Meet Me at Mikes to see whats happening on everyones shelves.

Here is the shelf in our lounge. I know it's very cluttered but seeing we can't put things on the walls it all has to go somewhere!

The egg cup holders in the front were created by an extroadinary artist in New Zealand called Martin Popplewell. One of my all time favourites!

There are illustrations done by my boys. And the horses in the surf, I grew up with at my Grans house.

And, sorry to say, I love gnomes. Especially one that is lime green.
