Oh, we have had a week full of goodness. Where on earth to start? Perhaps with the stash of vintage tablecloths waiting for me at the oppie when I took down four full bags of stuff. Some of which came from the contents of all these cardboard boxes which are finally all unpacked. Every last one. Legoman even sold the boxes, so this pile no longer resides in the house at all.
It was the week of the one and only end of year kindy concert. I think in many ways that precious kindy year is a magical,warm and fuzzy time that is never quite replicated later in life. And when it is the end of kindy year for your youngest child, well that is very, very special.
Oh, my beautiful birdy leaving your nest. Remember this year, it's one of the best.
As it was a week of memories and milestones, I had to include the first ever wearing of plaits in her hair. This is a very big deal at our place. Two words - sensory issues. If you do not know what that means be very, very grateful. If you do know, just nod and smile to yourself and share my joy of small moments.
And lets not forget this new essential kindy creation.
"It's a money machine Mama".
Oh, a cash register, how lovely.
"Noooo Mama, a MONEY machine"
Do you mean a machine that makes money? Oh yes, goodness it appears to have already produced $7.15!
That will come in very handy for a spot of Christmas shopping. Not for these though, as hopefully Santa will come through with a set of these for your bird mad brother. We are presuming that Everingham & Watson ship direct to the North Pole.
There are a few other things on the go around here. Namely this dubious attempt at a jellyfish. No clues here on the theme of the upcoming birthday party.
And this stool from the op shop which for ten dollars had enormous potential despite it's previous unfortunate makeover with gold stencilling, royal blue paint and thick drippy varnish. What I thought at first glance were studs under the seat were actually thick drips of dried lacquer. Talk about bodgy rushed makeover gone bad. Picture a colour change and some crochet love.
Oh yes, it was a great, wondrous week.
