some softie sewing

in my (very few) spare time lately i have been cranking out a few softies. i really like these quirky little critters made from vintage fabric and sheets.
im thinking of listing a few in my (abandoned) etsy shop. what do you think? maybe a good christmas present...

a garden of goodies

ever since i have lived out of home i have wanted a vegie garden. not just a few pots with some herbs in them but an honest, big, vegie producing garden. the other weekend this happened :)!! i have been so excited to post about this but i wanted to make sure that the seeds i had planted would actually grow and this morning i saw the beginning shoots of the cucumber, corn and carrot plants. i think that i was unnaturally excited about this but i dont care. it made my day to see little bits of green poking through all that brown...

we have four garden beds with pumpkin, lettuce, beans, zucchini, rockmelon, carrots, eggplant, tomatoes, cucumber and corn. and i planted some sunflowers just to see if they would grow. its all a bit of an experiment at this stage but i cant wait to (hopefully) eat the yummy organic results. hooray!

i will keep you posted on the progress...

my clever husband made me a compost bin too :) isnt he rad!

a suitcase rummage

yesterday mali and i bundled up three suitcases of vintage goodies and headed off to the suitcase rummage markets in the city! these markets are on once a month but yesterday was the first time we have had a stall there. it is something we have been planning on doing for a while but we have had other things on or have just missed on registration! it was such a fun day and we will definately head back there with more op shop treasures :)

we sold a lot. met some cool people (like the ever so lovely laura). got a pretty dress. sat in the sunshine. drank coffee. it was lovely.

here are some pictures from our little stall of lovely...
