last weekend i was lining some drawers with this awesome paper i found at the op shop (3m for $1 - woohoo). i had some scraps left over and it was way too pretty to throw away so i turned it into some pretty gift tags.
it was super easy - all you need to do is cut to the size you want, round the corners with a punch or scissors, glue the card and paper together, punch a hole in the top and thread some twine through. and you are ready to go!

my mailbox was a very happy place on tuesday! the super rad Jes sent me a little pacel for my birthday complete with a handmade card, some tea and this lovely heart garland :) i have hung it up in my sewing room (this is the only room that is semi-unpacked at this stage - priorities much? haha)! Jes and i have some mutual friends and at the moment she is living and teaching with her new hubby out in the WA desert. we are both in a wedding together in a couple of weeks time so it will be lovely to catch up with her :) pop on over and say hi at her lovely blog!!
p.s - dont forget to enter my giveaway - only a few days to go!!!

and was inspired to start my own collection of little golden books (i figure im already collecting baby clothes and wooden toys so why not just go all the way)!!
it has been slowly growing...
...and then yesterday i got the loveliest little parcel in my mailbox from Allana!
it was a gorgeous birthday surprise!!! there were two little golden books inside (that i didnt have in my collection). she must be a mind reader!!!
thank you so much Allana for making this girls day! your thoughtfulness is truly inspiring!!
pop over and visit if you arent already a follower... her blog is just as lovely as her!

i made a grand discovery last night - look at this book!!!! it has all the op shops in brisbane listed in here.. oh my! could it be any more perfect? i am posting this as a not so subtle hint to some of my friends who perhaps read my blog... pretty please?? also if you live in brisbane and love op shopping then this is the book for you. check out more over here
i am also currently having a love affair with vintage (or handmade) wooden toys! i don't know what it is about them but i love the idea that they have been made by hand and loved before. i have no children and no immediate plans to do so but i figure it is never too early to start a wooden toy collection. right? check out some of my favourites here and here...
