Oh how life is keeping me so very busy these days. Good busy though. Little girl's birthday parties, little boys growing up fast and starting school. Lots of travelling (inlcuding lovely Bruges above) and time with friends. Planning to see family and looking forward to the festive season.

Pinecones have taken over our home. They are collected on our walks and are appearing everywhere. In the pram, in my handbag, in pockets, in shoes, on the door mat, probably under the sofa....all over the place! Big, medium and small. Some spikey. Some painted and some with glitter. They are destined to become Christmas decorations but until then will continue to grow in numbers and take over our home.

The local summer car boot sale has become my favourite way to spend a Sunday morning. I love that I can wander down there with a pocket full of change and come back with all sorts of treasures. These are just a few.
The timber abacus is so well made it will last forever...not like most of today's toys! Not sure what to do with the vintage tea towel but it wont be touching any dishes. I plan to clean up and repaint the timber dolls cradle and then make some bedding for it as my little girl is just starting to enjoy playing dolls. The embroidered hankies may turn into pincushions like these. And the tins?...well, they're already filling with stamps torn from the mail.

I ordered these from Daisy Daydreams for my cousin who has recently had triplets..... yes triplets! These felt cookies are really cute, very well made and arrived quickly. It's the first time I've ever ordered from Etsy and I'm happy to say I'm impressed.
I'm also impressed with my cousin... 3 babies...at once....
