A Special Birthday and a "Santa Walk" for Charity

Hiya all.....
Well it's definitely been a while since my last post hasn't it ???....but in all honesty I just haven't been able to find the time to get on here and blog away like I used
A few of things have happened of late that I will share with you...some exciting...some not so exciting but I am in a very "sharing" mood so I will spill the lot...tee hee!
Firstly....starting this week I am now finally back to working only three days a week...woohooo!!! hopefully I will have a bit more spare time up my sleeve to get some of "my" stuff sewing, creating, blogging, from this week I am only working Wednesday through Friday and hope to be able to concentrate a bit more on my website business and the neverending chores that I have been ignoring at exciting!
(well it is for me...maybe not so for you guys...but I did warn y'all)
....and seeing as I have had a bit of time this week I decided firs…

Happy 50th Birthday my friend...


Daffodils....and a beaut cause!!

The 27th August 2010 (last Friday here in Australia) was "Daffodil Day"..... a day held once each year to raise money for much needed cancer research....such a wonderful, wonderful cause.
So when I ducked out from work at lunch time to buy my lunch and I saw the street-side "Daffodil Day" stall in our shopping village I couldn't help but buy some....because you see...not only are they one of my favourite flowers the cause has touched me personally on a few levels over recent years...
Thanks to the progress made in cancer research and it's treatment I am still able to hug my dad and tell him that I love him and also still have my young nephew here to watch grow into a young man.
Sadly the same outcome is not shared by all who this cruel disease affects and a couple of years back we were forced to say goodbyeto a dear friend..a wonderful lady who unfortunately was unable to be helped in her fight....

So as I look at these beautiful golden yellow daffodils I have …

I'm a lucky gal...yes indeedy I am !

I had a birthday a week or so ago and was totally and utterly spoiled by some of my friends and my family. So.... in this post, I thought I would share a few of the thoughtful "primmy" gifts I received with you....
Now.....before you ask...NO..... I'm not going to tell you how old I was as I am trying to forget that (or maybe thats just the "ol-timer's" kickin' in....tee
Anyways enough of that old age natterin'......feist your eyes on these (and please feel free to pop on your spectacles, should you think you need them....who am I to judge!) firstly let me tell you that I had a day out recently with a dear friend and we did what we do best....shopped for old Now my dear sweet (but obviously senile husband) told me that if I saw anything I liked to grab it and he would give it to me as my birthday present.....was he game or what????
Anywhoooo.....this is what I found.... Isn't it just beautiful. I…

Eighteen pair......and counting!!!

Regular followers of my BLOG would be aware of my passion for all things "old and prairie" and in particular my fetish for old victorian boots, about which I have written on a couple of occasions.
Well.......I have been on the scout for some for a couple of my customers and happened to come across a few lovely pairs....four to be precise....however as it seems to be with everything else in my life...this was not to be without
The dilemma this do I sell them when they are just so perfectly prim & prairie and especially when I DON'T have a set like that in my collection???
Well the four pair quickly went down to three, then two...then one.....oops!!!..(be strong lassie and put at least one pair back)...aaaagggghhhhhh........back to two again, but very reluctantly!!
I decided to keep these two pair
(youno coz I truley-ruley need them)

Anyways I have today popped the remaining two pair up on my Little House Primitives webstore for sale and I h…

What a dfference a day makes.....

This last weekend I had the pleasure of spending Sunday afternoon at my brother and sister in-law's lovely home set on 2 acres with a gorgeous view of the great "aussie bush"!.
They are off to the US today for a business trip/holiday for 4 weeks and arranged a family BBQ to catch up before they left. For those of you who know will know that this also meant playtime and lots of cuddles with my cutie-pie niece before she left!
The day was one of Sydney's best winter days in ages....sun shining , not a cloud in the sky and (dare I say it) even slightly warm-ISH!!!

Anyways...the BBQ was great and Charlotte and I had fun chasing bubbles around the backyard (courtesy of the bubble blower that I spotted at the store on my way over (I knew it would be fun!).

I thought I would share a few pics with you (none of CJ chasing bubbles as I was the chief bubble blower and far too carried away to take any
Nanny and Poppy bought her this l…
