a little sunshine on a rainy day....
With only one sunny day the past wet & gray week, it was a mad rush hanging out laundry, mopping the floors and trying to fit in some outdoor fun for the boys....we've been indoors for a while now...its been nice and relaxing but how many cups of tea & muffins can you have?
It was great having the extra day off yesterday though. ..my friend Patricia and I went to see 'Sex & the City' - we both loved it and everyone in the theatre clapped with joy at the end!!! it was so nice to see the girls again ...ive missed them!!!! I shouldnt have worn mascara though because i cried and cried some more...sad tears...happy tears, my face was a mess! ha!
I was also jumping with joy when a little parcel arrived on my doorstep...my blogging friend Veronica sent me some FAB magazines!
a while ago we both did a month of daily blog posts with inspiring images from our piles (and piles) of magazine clippings - that was so much fun so recently we swapped magazines...I sent her Real Living and Donna Hay mags, both are favourites of mine!
i do love american interior magazines though ...the style is so fresh & homely with lovely cosy details!!
look at the cute pillows here!! adorable!
Veronica also sent this gorgeous hand embroidered tag that she made - the girl is so inspiring to me and she creates such beautiful things....and look at the vintage embroidered bird postcard she also included, what a treasure ...its so beautiful!
thanks so much Veronica!!
and lastly a peek at a cute vintage 50's children book I bought at Paddington Markets - how darling are the illustrations...so simple but really really sweet!
here's to a great start of the week for us all....
