Love is in the air

This is such an exciting year with a July & a November weddings. One for a freind and second for my brother. Such romance and fun in the air with hearing all of the lovely plans. It's nice one is a church wedding & one is a beach wedding. Bella is super excited to be the flowergirl for her uncle's wedding. We are not sure yet if she will wear pink or yellow for her dress, it depends what the bridesmaids get. And for me i better hit the walking so that come the spring/summer range of dresses i can look faboulous. Am not sure about the July cold and what to wear yet....

Yay - so much love is in the air & 2001 will bring two more weddings for us to attend :-)

Time for Gardening!!

It was a great day to get out in the garden today inbetween the rain. For months we have had a garden box ready for a lovely vegie patch & today i finally completed it.

We now have a patch growing -

  • 4 varieties of lettuce
  • Roma tomatoes
  • Beans
  • Carrots

I hope they grow into yummy vegies & dont get eaten by other insects or animals before we get to them.

Bella will be very excited to see this when she returns home this afternoon from her Dad's house.

Addicted to Vinnies

I will admit it honestly i am a bit addicted to looking in St Vinnies Shops. I get such satisfaction :-) Like this week i got a Myer Miss Shop top (new with a $40 tag left on it) for only 50c!!!! Last week i picked up a purple Basque Skirt for only $2, i imagine new it would have cost around $50.

I love bargains, i can justify clothes for myself at these prices :-) It's less than a cup of coffee!!

But my key to this bargain shopping is only looking for name labels when i am sorting through the racks, i find gems everytime :-)

With such a rainy day keeping me inside again today i have been feeling crafty so i will share my new cards. They are for noone in particular yet but i am quite happy with these 4! There is lots of birthdays for me this month and next so it's nice to be be organised with some already made!
The card on it's own is one i made for a very good friend of mine & she loved it. the colours and flowers make it very pretty.
Going along with this crafty feeling if tomorrow is another rainy day i will attempt some scrapbooking, i have an unfinished page sitting in my craft room that i would love to get to finishing.
Happy Rain - I love it :-)
