8 weeks 'til Christmas

image via willow decor

Holy freakin hell!
I have just realised there is only 8 weeks until Christmas...seriously, where did the year go?

I really love, love, love Christmas- the decorating, the pressies, having free time to spend with family, the lying around and doing nothing except eating (especially a big chewy pavalova), not feeling bad for eating dessert (ie aforementioned pavalova) for the majority of meals for generally a 2 week period and all the guilt free excess drinking (tis the season to be merry, right?).

Hmm, I think its time to think about christmas shopping (love having an excuse to write a new list). Oh and I guess I should finish the kids new santa sacks I started last year and didn't get finished in la la la la, lala la la

Some inspiration for one of my many items on my "to do" list- the entry way.
At last I have finally found a sideboard- not exactly what I was planning on but it works...and for $35 how could I pass it up? But more on that another day.

Weekend thrifted finds

$10 vintage travel clock (as previosly mentioned, I have an issue with collecting clocks...) and pretty floral and blue polka dot table cloth

Do you remember these adorable little double mirrors? You pull out the back mirror and it flips around so there are 2 mirrors-a standard and close up sweet!

Looks quite scary with those beaded eyes but with a coat of paint I am sure he will come up cute as a button!

This flamingo pair kept calling to me but sadly I left them there. I keep thinking about them so I think I am going to have to go back and get them. They are a darker pink in real life. Don't know where in my house they they would go, hmm, minor detail.

Bundle of vintage linens- sheets, tablecloths and pillowcases. Perfect for some upcoming projects I am trying to start...

It was quite a productive weekend at my fave thrift/junk shop.
Lots of new projects to start and hopefully some will even get finished sometime soon!

Weekend Wishes

Woot woot! Day off today, that means another 3 day weekend for me- hopefully I will get a chance to do some 2nd hand store rummaging, check out my favourite fabric store for more fabric and accessories I dont need and catch up on some projects around the house.

Have fun whatever you have planned!

Vintage playsuit

I finally got to do some sewing over the long weekend and look what I whipped up.It is from a vintage pattern mum picked up from an op shop and a vintage Sheridan tablecloth from my collection of vintage linens. At first I wasn't sure if I liked the style but now I am thinking it is pretty cute for a toddling tots summer outfit!
