{happy friday} little clouds in sunny oz...


G'Day all and Happy Friday!

Very exciting news from the shop...I have just sent off my very first order to Australia! (a few weeks ago actually but I didn't want to spoil the surprise!). The order was for one of each of my smily little cloud cushions. In the spirit of the upcoming Jubilympic celebrations over here I thought I'd include a little British Jubilee themed treat along with the cushions...so here's a couple of little snapshots of what I did!


Here are Sally's two little clouds, happy as Larry.


I put in some Haribo Starmix because who doesn't love a cheeky fried egg? In the back there you can see the little Jubilee treat of Limited Edition red, white and blue M&Ms :). 


You can't really tell from this picture but I hung the tags with NEON pink thread.


So that was it, my first order to sunny, sunny Perth - Australia. I always like it when you order something and you find a little something extra or a cute surprise with your order or the seller has gone to extra effort with the packaging, so I like to do that when I can for my customers too :)

I also decorated the outside of the box with my leafy motif and added a bit of sparkle as you can see below!

I hope Sally receives her parcel safe and sound and that she likes the secret little treats!
Have a great weekend :)

{colour ways} Feeling Patriotic!

With the Jubilee fast approaching our shops and streets are awash with all things red, white and blue (and corgi) themed! So I thought, what better time to embrace our nations colours and showcase some goodies that would be a perfect fit at a good old Jubilee street party! There was so much to choose from it was mind-blowing, but here are some of my faves...enjoy!

{sunshine} what a contrast!

So just prior to my horrible knee op I travelled up to Edinburgh for a week away with my dear friend Bing to celebrate our close friends Jules and Steven's wedding. I've never been to bonny Scotland before and so expected it to be pretty picturesque and generally ace - it was both, but unlucky for us it literally rained for the entire time we were there (with the exception of the day of the wedding which turned out to be the most glorious sunny day!). I took some rather pretty pictures up in Scotland despite the downpour so thought I'd share them with you..it's funny actually as the unfortunate weather we had is completely different to how it's been pretty much ever since we got back!

I'll be pretty sad when this sunny spell is over..
Anyway here are some snaps of beautiful Edinburgh and one I took today during a hobbly jolly around the lovely town of Winchester - what a contrast it was!










{Hello sunny Winchester and your cute Jubilee bunting!}

P.S. Thought I'd chuck in a cheeky snap from the gorgeous Jules and the lovely Steven's wedding too...they had a photo booth with props...such FUN!
