Hi peeps,
the excitement is brewing here at camp
one denim bird
In 3 more sleeps I get to hang out with a
and faff about in her back yard
 and frolick in her wardrobes
and oggle her vintage junk (her words)
and laugh
and giggle
and hang at her beach shack
and maybe even op shop
and garge sale
and drink cider
and laugh some more
and chat to each other in person!!!
YES DARLINGS - chat in person!!!

I'm signing off for another week here as we are packed and ready to
 rock and roll
bright and early in the morning. 
See you on the other side!!

I've been in hiding ....

Well, not intentionally, life just sort of got away on me and I have
neglected my blog and all you fabulous readers out there!!!
I have made several half hearted attempts at blogging these past few weeks but have abandoned them due to a lack of time and an overwhelming feeling of disorganisation!
We are currently in the throngs of renovation!
Our tatty old and disgustingly vile carpet has been ripped up and dumped.

and so we have been living on concrete!
and everything is Echo.i.n.g!
Our dated kitchen tiles have been jack-hammered to smithereens.

Ceilings have been painted.
Walls have been painted.

Windows have been washed.
Cupboards have been emptied.
All but bare minimum has been removed.

We are camping in at present.
My sewing room is over-crowded and I can't breathe in there

it's a no-sew zone!

More shelving is required, and I have stacks more sheets to be washed, folded and stored!

I think I need a Personal Assistant!
:     :     :     :     :
It all got a bit much for me so one afternoon I escaped to a place of peace ....
Mt Buffalo is literally just up the road!
To keep myself sane I followed the golden rule
and the universe provided me with ...
a current favourite : 50c
a washline full of vintage floral sheets : $2 each
100 luggage tags : 50c
(usually 20-30c each)
A roll of retro wallpaper to go with my (tiny) stash : yes darlings : $2
A pretty ballerina print for Little Miss Nikita's bedroom
A stack of old school chairs at a garage sale

A pretty plate for my increasing collection
and many other assortments!
It sure did put me in a better mood :-)
When I do finally get my house back in order I'll be finishing off a couple of current projects:
a little lace top for my newly turned teenage girl Grace
the backing to my king size patchwork vintage floral bedspread in greens ...
among others ................
Oh and did I mention I have finally succumed to
"Fifty Shades of Grey"
and all its
 (you'll know what I'm talking about if youv'e read the books)
So excuse me wont you, I only have a few more chapters to read till I can finally get back into the world of
Laters Baby x
