Sunny happy bedroom makeover

Inspired by a yellow cushion and my pretty new(ish) bed linen, I gave our bed a sunshiney makeover. It seems yellow is here to stay in my life!

Another crochet cushion cover! And these purple floral vintage sheets have been in my family since I was a child, I just love them.
How can you not be happy around this colour.

Nice to see our bedroom looking so lovely...however, this stylized look only lasted a day!!

Sweet Treats

This weekend the Handmade Craft Markets were on in Terrigal. It's been a while since I've checked out these markets but since they are now held literally across the road from me I couldn't resist. I was delighted to find the most beautiful cupcakes there, just amazing. Here are the 2 that I bought and a few cheeky macarons as well.

 So pretty, sigh!

I'll have to be on the look out for one of those icing nozzles that makes grass. Love the little lady bug.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. xxx

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's day for yesterday...and for my Mum, I made her a crochet cushion cover for her loungeroom and she loved it!

I hope all the mummies were spoilt yesterday! xxx

Cute fruits...strawberries

Still mad keen on fabric fruit, I went to town making strawberries this time....20 of them! They are suprisingly easy to make and just a little bit addictive.

Now to find a use for them!

Pastel Jackpot

Pastel colours everywhere! I can't believe my luck of late, it doesn't matter where I go, I have found pretty coloured items.
These gorgeous plates were from an Op shop on Friday. There are 3 large and 3 smaller plates in lemon, baby pink and powder blue plus a pretty floral one for good measure. I am trying to cut back on buying vintage plates, really I am, but I never come accross bigger sized plates so had to have them.
Lovely scrapbooking embelishments.
More embelishments, glittery too aaah.
I almost couldn't contain myself when I stumbled upon this wool on a bottom shelf in Spotlight. And the chunky crochet hoots which my friend found for me, also on our trip to Spotlight. I'm planning a scarf out of this lot.
Part of a cushion cover for my Mum.
Tiles in a bargain basement for only 15c each. I just can't stop looking at them.
My motto this week is "Ask and you shall receive" as I have found quite a few items off my secret, unspoken list, which is in fact, just buy anything that is in a pretty colour lol!
