bundles of fun!

Cyclamen & fuchsia notelet bundles now on Etsy :0)

Good news internet here at home is back on, well kind of it's bloomin' sllowwww! Not so good news the fast broadband we've been waiting for won't be enabled until the end of October or something ridiculous like that! Made them sort out a temp. dial-up connection until then! So Etsy was lots of fun today hehe! Yawn! Etsy shop stuff always takes me ages to do at the best of times so you can imagine my frustration when the dial-up went completely dead halfway through entering my postings. Grreat! For some reason my swearing didn't seem to make it come back on & neither did storming out the room to make a cuppa lol! but an hour later the dial tone came back to life!
More Etsy fun still to do tomorrow...woop woop.

hAppy! haPPy! UnBirThDay!

Wonderful Weekend!

The Hubby & I threw a little surprise 'Happy! Happy! Unbirthday' gathering for my Sister-in-Law on Saturday afternoon. It's her big four-o this December but we thought it would be a giggle to celebrate it on a hot sunny day instead of a cold bleak December day! And a hot day we jolly well had! Can't believe how lucky we were to have such perfect weather for an outdoor party!
The surprise certainly worked out well! She had absolutely no idea! We left little clues along the way but she still didn't know what was going on! Her little face was a picture once she realised we were all there waiting for her in the field :0) I made some silly masks for us to hide behind in hopes she wouldn't recognise us, but she did. hehe!
It was a lovely day with lots of bbq fodder, drinkipoos, music & lots & lots of laughter!

We spent the evening relaxing around the campfire watching stars & toating marshmellows. A perfect ending to a perfect day :0)

string & pegs

While over at the shop yesterday, I made these card holders for the window display by simply plaiting some string together held down using a couple of little flowerpots :0)
