This morning whilst still eating christmas leftovers I've been toiling around on Etsy. This Robert Smith doll took my fancy. I think I may have to buy it as it makes me laugh. You can see the full collection at the Rosebud Factory store if you do a search on Etsy (as I can't seem to get the link working).

Continuing my Japanese link hopping I found these bags on Bon Bon. Making a handbag over the summer holidays is a good time filler and applique is so easy, not to forget patchwork too. Best get cracking!

So the name through me a first too, but Naked and Angry is a really fun little site. You can submit your own wallpaper designs to be scored and if you score highly you win US$500 and they'll print up and sell your work! Now what's more fun than that?

Last year I bought some really beautiful watercolour paints and special paper and due to all sorts of procrastinations I have been lacking inspiration, till I happened on the work of Brooklyn based artist Isabelle Grizzard. Now I just have to get through the pile of pre christmas cleaning and I'm on to it!

I made 18 of these name places yesterday for our Christmas table. The idea was inspired by Geninne's Thanksgivinng table and quite by chance the template is compliments of one of our favorites here at Miss Woolly....guess who?
and these gorgeous Christmas tags are courtesy of Natascha. I love them, thank you xox

Vintage Milk Cap Fridge Magnets
Vintage Noddy T-shirt
Lark Designs launched in Cambridge, England, in 2004 and are now based in our very own Dayelsford....Australia. All of their gifts are hand made using recycled materials. Fun things like old children's books, vintage dress fabrics, discarded boy's comics and 70's wallpaper. They turn them into one-off mini artworks, perfect for special gifts and ...lets face it, at this time of year everyone needs a few more.....stocking fillers.
Heavenly Daylesford, ahhhh, I love Daylesford.

Hip Hip Hooray! Miffy is 50. Can you beleive it?
Created in 1955 by Dick Bruna in the Netherlands and first published in 1963 Miffy has taken the world by storm. In 1983 the first 'miffy playgroup opened, in 1992 she featured in 52 short TV films for KRO television. In 2001 we saw the premiere of the miffy musical...and the 100th title by Dick Bruna was published and over the next 5 years Miffy notched up her 200th performance of the miffy musical, introduced miffy 3d animated films for TV, premiered a second musical and was appointed as New York City Family Tourism Ambassador. For a little white rabbit she sure does have it going on (much like Eliza who celebrated her birthday yesterday!).
After a huge redevelopment the V & A Museum of Childhood reopen their doors this Saturday and feature an Exhibition titled 'Happy Birthday Miffy'
If you need a miffy fix amazon have plenty of titles to search through or take a look at the official website.

OK, so I did quite well on the crafty tasks today. I made 6 cushions for my outdoor area using the vintage fabric from Lorne.
Plus, I tried out the Little Bird soft tree pattern and the fabric chain (which is a work in progress) from Moki. I can't decide whether to add an additional colour or leave it green? The green does go quite well with the pink border on the mirror behind.
I also completed another set of bunting.
The only thing left on my task list is the glycerin and the figurines. I guess that's for tomorow!
