What happens now??

So someone once told me that the 30's is the new 20's... Whatever that means... Annoys me I can't remember who - but I am pretty sure they were over 30...

Big spender

Hmm - while waiting for my latest craft-materials, and sorting through the old stuff, I am keeping myself and my debitcard busy... Today I went to a local flower-shop, cause a while back I saw some cupcake ornaments, and I wanted to see if they had any left... they did, I choose the pink one, and an owl that was too lovely to leave behind... I am not even sure these are gonna be for Christmas.. they might be my spring/ Easter ornaments!

And while I was swinging the card around anyway, I saw these lovely painted eggs - I really want some hand painted eggs with birds aswell, but among all the crafty stuff I can, drawing is not one of them.. I can do free-hand big odd stuff, but not pretty small things.. *sigh*... so keeping my eyes open for eggs with birds on, but for now I got these 3 butterfly eggs, also very pretty!

And.. another box arrived today - this was a very impulsive buy ( like most my purchases are) I was browsing around on the internet, looking for some painted eggs, when I came across a business, that apparently used to have a shop, but now only sells over the internet.. and after looking through their stuff, I found several items I have been looking for forever! I found a white display for my earrings and foam heads! I want to make a rack of heads where I can display all my lovely hats, but until now I haven't been able to find cheap heads.. I also happened to come across a lovely string-light with white birds, and a fish-net for my nautical bedroom theme.. next time I am ordering the fake seagull they had!

I cant wait to actually show you some of my crafts, and not just my purchases :P I also got a secret package today - something I saw, and instantly thought of someone in particular - just need the last bit before I send it off :)

yay - package arrived!

Ok, first I will have to admit that I Ebay way too much... Prolly a good thing I don't have a home atm - there would be no money for Ebay'ing then :P

So the latest package arrived today.. and this one I have been looking forward to - my new cute pink retro swallows <3 They are supposed to be for the hallway.. if I ever get one :P they could also end up in the bedroom - I am sure I could make them fit in with the nautical theme.. I was gonna post a picture of the birds and some recent projects, but all of a sudden I cant find the camera, and the one in my phone suddenly doesn't work.. So, I just nicked the picture from Ebay:

Ohh - and trying to trace the source of the birds, I bumped into this place - I could spend a fortune there.. unfortunetly it's wholesale.. and I just want a few of each - not 100£ worth :P

But have a look / drool like me.. sooo many pretty things!

Sunny sunday sewing

Ahh - the sun is out, and I am getting that summer-feeling.. can't be long now before I can get the flip flops out of the box.. but the air is still a bit cold, so today I am wishing I had a winter room where I could soak up the sun without getting a cold.

Instead I am gonna sit in the front room and get my sewing on - My cousin is pregnant with girl number 2, and I need to make the baby something for when I go visit at the hospital - the last girl got a knitted monkey ( yes, my mom had to help a lot on that one.. my knitting is still not past socks and scarfs).. and for the christening I made a advent calendar to hang daily gifts on... so this time I am making a duck for the hospital.. and still considering what to make for the Christening.

I found this lovely pattern on Ebay - it said it was an old pattern from the 40's, but when it arrived the copy said "2010" - so it's a reproduction.. never mind though - it's still such a cute pattern, and I bought some purple ribbed velvet for it.

So I will go outside and enjoy the sun while the fabrics dry.. oh I missed hanging the laundry outside to dry.. it gets that absolutely lovely smell of fresh air.. mmmm think I might do some linens later.. nothing beats a bed with fresh linens after you had your evening bath.

Blog on

So - I already have an other blog, but that was my first one, and I don't feel it went in the right direction, so I decided that since that was mostly about my pre-30-panic, that this one would be my "post-30-blog", and more about what I fiddle with in my spare time, and my interests... So there will be a lot about cakes, jewellery-making, sewing, knitting and etc. ;)

I am fairly new to the world of blogging, and still have no idea where to locate the kind that would be to my liking, but then I am so lucky that I located Camilles blog/shop, and she often blog about other good blogs (I am starting to see how this is a whole other dimension - Blogworld).

And then the best thing of them all - I read about "give aways" - and gift-swapping - ohhh this is right up my ally - I love making boxes for my friends - tbh they get quite spoiled sometimes - but I just love finding small things I know they would love, and posting them of in a little box every now and then (I have several boxes standing around stuffed with things for different ppl, or just cute things I find, and save, cause some day someone might like them). So I need to be a part of this swapping thing.
