Wall pocket

Do you have posts from yonks ago just sitting in your post drafts, or are you spontaneous and post as you go? Here is one I prepared earlier. Ha!

Isn't this gorgeous? I picked it up a few months ago at a local Op Shop. It's pottery and although a little tatty, some of the flowers are chipped, it is so pretty. It is signed on the back but unfortunately I can't make it out. It is hanging on my kitchen wall.

If you go down to the woods today....

I love Typo! I couldn't resist these cute cases; one for me (bear), one for India (cat) and one from the discount bin (raccoon). They are only $9.95 - the raccoon was priced at $1.00 as it is missing the zipper pull which is an easy peasy fix. They are the perfect size to pop in a little money and a phone ready for a quick jaunt to the shops.

Enjoy the rest of the week and the weekend! xx

p.s. thanks for your support of our village heritage petition :)

Save our Heritage Buildings - Bungendore

Our local council have earmarked two heritage homes on the main thoroughfare through town to be removed or demolished. In their place they propose to build a new supermarket and carpark (we already have one supermarket that is in the planning stages of an extension).

The village of Bungendore is a 15 minute drive away from the nearest regional centre where there are three major supermarkets. Drive a little further (30 minutes in total) and you will find yourself in the Australian Capital, Canberra.

The local community have started a petition to try and save our heritage buildings:

Sometimes I can't help myself!

I know most women have a thing for shoes, I don't have that many pairs, but when I saw these shoes I REALLY had to have them. They are small, French and the prefect colour. Mr APT thought I was mad, spending money on shoes I couldn't wear, but I said I will wear them on my fingers..hehe

They were originally from a French male boudoir doll. I could just picture him with white stockings, a silk jacket and white wig.  I love the lace trim and tiny buckles.

What have you bought lately that you just had to have?

Enjoy your weekend and the school holidays if you have them. Bye for now, Tamara x

Powerpuff Girl Mad!

Hi, thanks for the warm welcome back. Its been nice to hear from you all.

I just wanted to show you a few pictures that India has been drawing in photoshop - all drawn with the mouse. Lately she's obsessed with the Powerpuff Girls - you know the ones, saving the world before bedtime? Bubbles is her favourite, can you tell?

It's hard to believe that she just turned 9!

Thanks for stopping by. xx
