Yikes 2012 fast approaching!

Wow! I cant believe I am already thinking about 2012? Luckily I have some beautiful calendar eye candy to help me cope with the reality of all that next year holds. Shivani from My Owl Barn and a team of fab designers have done it again, a fantastic little free calendar for you to download and print, take a peek here. Just gorgeous!

a good little bargain

It is no secret... I love a good eBay auction, who doesn't I guess? my latest little winner was this set of sturdy vintage kids chairs. The seller was an absolute pleasure and threw in this cute little table as well as a very funky random ice bucket. His place was jam packed with sooo many lovely retro and vintage items I had a field day browsing through his shed. I really felt like I was part of the American picker team, minus the extensive pricing knowledge of course... The sellers house was also completely amazing, it looked like it was straight out of a magazine shoot themed around vintage. Little girlie can't sit on these chairs yet which thankfully gives me enough time to give them a tiny bit of a make over...hmmm I am off to get my sanding block.
