Thrifty finds, sewing and crafting

Absolutely delighted with my op shopped red vinyl suitcase...

I have been on the lookout for a RED storage vessel for a while
and this did not disappoint,
it's very large, is lined in satin and will house a LOT of vintage sheets,
it will also come in handy for holidays overseas!
(there is always one on the horizon)

two little blue wrens

and finally a clean folded pile of vintage sheets ..

(last weeks haul to add to the ever growing collection)

Also, weekend baking by my 8 year old son Teo
(he has a VERY sweet tooth)
I very rarely buy sweet biscuits in our house so if you want a sweet hit you have to bake it!

He's pretty damn good in the kitchen, and as you can see they don't last long in our house!
(note: All I did to help was beat and pour into the tin)
Not bad eh!
I managed a spot of sewing too,

a pretty twirly swirly dress for an equally pretty girl.
(a parcel of joy is heading her way as we speak)

Linking up with:


All in all it's been very relaxing and I am ready to conquer this week with renewed enthusiasm.

Hope you all had a fab one too,

  10. That suitcase! It's fabulous. I love all your pretty sheets too. That cake looks delicious. Nothing like a bit of home baking.

  12. Blimey, it's all about the sheets down under! Love the pretty dress and suitcase, and I'm now wondering whether I could let my 7 year old loose in the kitchen without me having to stand over him. Could be worth the experiment!

    Thanks for linking up xx

  13. I just found your blog today, via Tah Dah Tuesday. I am so glad I did, you blog is just lovely!
    I really like the red suitcase. I have been trying to find one like that for some time now..I keep hoping one will show up at a boot sale (no luck so far).
    I love the vintage fabrics, you have such a pretty collection of them :)
