You know every so often it gets a bit messy around here.
I always try to keep it pretty for you, I don’t want you to come over and feel down.
I want you to enjoy your visit and leave smiling, leave hungry, or even leave inspired.

so know I can tell you about my afternoon tea...yay!
Firstly it was the best fun ever, really was! It was so good to see so many familiar faces and so many new ones.
I was so exhausted but it was exhaustion that i absolutely loved in the end.
Loved because I worked hard and achieved even more than I myself expected.
The love from you all was absolutely amazing, you girls are absolutely awesome!
The list of genuine fabulousness is in no particular order because you are all equally beautiful
My beautiful sister, my gorgeous sister-in-law, my lovely friends Louise, Teresa, Miss Holly, my gorgeous cousin and beautiful friend Vera for taking pics for me and of course the lovely Nikki for opening up her studio for us.
The raffle prizes were a m a z i n g and people loved them all. The online raffle was also drawn on the day and the winners were as follows
Ms Chunkychooky won Little Miss Vintage
Teresa D won Lil Mim
So after a recount, the final tally for the afternoon tea was $929..I know..eeeekkk, plus the online donations and personal donations of $345,
total $1274, take a bow ladies, that is absolutely fabulous, well done!!!
It’s all going to a great cause that has touched the lives of many, not just mine, so thank you, thank you to all involved.
OK, totally exhausted, more pics over at Nikki’s
p.s heart cookie cutter for teacup was a lovely gift from here
I feel like I have been hiding this last week, peeking a little into your lives yet not sharing any of my life with you.
Mothers day went by and I felt a little sad. A little part of me wanted my dad to see what a great mum I am or one that I hoped to be.
It’s strange but I just missed him so much, I thought I was dealing with the grief and all of a sudden it just came flooding back.
Sorry, I don’t have many words this week but I invite you for a cup of tea and a glimpse at a few things we’ve been up to
mother’s day heart pillow for my mum
mother’s day heart pillow for my little sis
toy picnic using vintage picnic set in a suitcase found on the nature strip
op shopping with my little guy
hanging out with my little assistant
making birthday cakes

Thank you for all your sweet words, sorry if I didn’t get back to you personally, all your stories and advice was really appreciated and some of your words even made me a bit teary…thank you
Hugs to you for now and share some love because you know we all deserve a bit of loving every single day ♥
