As toey as a Roman sandal.


Its been hectic around here, organising the surprise party for my parents (hopefully, it is still a surprise) almost sure mum doesn't read my blog....not enough world facts to keep her entertained.

My lovely friend Kelly, has been very kind in offering her services to organise the screen printing of the table runners that I am making up. I'm hoping to add something personal to the decorations-and she is a very accomplished screen printer. Thanks Kelly.

I have also collected a plethora of tea cups, to be filled with soy wax and turned into candles. Just to help with atmosphere.

I have collected close to 50 tea cups now, and I think I was aiming for 60. (what am i going to do with them after the event?)

Along with sewing my dress, I have been sewing up a cute little dress for the baby owl.

the bodice almost finished

Just quietly, its been good having an excuse to go op shopping. Of course I tell everybody its for cute teacups, when in fact, I'm looking for bargains like these:
a new toy

I love her

So while its been a little busy and a little stressful:

Me and my big one, hanging out in the emergency department due to  a suspected broken  wrist whilst she was tap dancing.

 I've still been able to enjoy a little bit of the leftovers of autumn

You're very welcome, my sweet xx Rahni's dress is looking gorgeous, and I can't believe how many autumn leaves you still have in your yard - so jealous!
