At my house .....

Nice way to start a week I think - so I am joining buttons by Lou Lou to let you all in on what is happening at our house.  It was pouring rain when we got up this morning so it is play time inside and my son just loves snapping away on my old digital camera.  He has improved so much - before he would just take random pictures of the floor but now he is getting the hang of it and goes around taking pictures of his favourite toys or his sister! The best thing about this is that we get to laugh at all his pictures, then I can just delete them from the memory card and away he goes again! Take a look at his concentrating face!

been away....

Ahhhh...we are back home after spending a week away on a family holiday.  Me, my husband and two kids along with my brother-in-law, his wife and their two girls all went to Hamilton Island! Yes, four adults and four children (aged 4,3, 2 and 1). It was lovely and the kids had a great time together.  We got home just before the cyclone hit, so I hope all the Islanders are doing ok!

Some pretty pictures - first one of my hubby and son and second one of the view of Catseye beach

E is for.....


My best friend had a baby girl last week and we are pleased to welcome baby Ella into the world.  She is absolutely gorgeous and I had a the pleasure of making her a special gift.  As part of the 12 in 12 by My favourite  - I made her a softie letter E in the left over fabric I used to make her a quilted cot blanket.  I hope that it's not cheating that I didn't make a doll or character of some sort - but it was heaps of fun and my friend loved Ella's "E".

At my house .....

Oh....what is better than a Monday that feels like Sunday???

Anyway, playing along again with Buttons by lou lou to give you all a snippet of what is going on at ours. As you may remember from a few Monday's ago, I showed you some freshly picked figs.  Well now that the tree is yeilding soooooo many figs i decided to give jam making a go.  I found a recipe which included adding a hint of cinnamon, vanilla bean and lemon juice (and caster sugar of course).  I did a small batch with only 1kg of figs and put the made jam in little baby food jars - perfect size!

Just a quick post to say that I have now officially launched a store on Made it.... I am pleased to be a part of the great Australian Hand Made website for all things made independently and originally.  I have only added my Key Fob's but I hope to add some more lovely things soon.

at my house .....

Hey there,

loving this idea by buttons by lou lou to give you all a snapshot of what is going on at our house. Today it was all about traffic and cars. My son (aged 3.5) is traffic obsessed and I found these gorgeous little wooden traffic signs on Ebay a while back and we love to get them out and play with them as they are perfect for matchbox sized cars.

Now, I'm off to see what you have all been up to today!

Thanks for stopping by!
