It's a rainy day in Queensland

Since it has been raining for the last couple of days I just wanted to sit and create something, So I found this Vintage baby Shoe pattern I had in my stash of patterns. So this is my creation.
A vintage baby shoe pin cushion, I had such fun making it.

I made if from calico which I dyed with vanilla and Parisian, I love the old vintage primitive look I also have a lot of vintage lace old keys and rusty bells and safety pins.

Wow if you seen my craft cupboard. I have a lot of things. So it is good to use some of my supplies, I really loved making this pin cushion so much I will be making some more to put on the website.

Happy Valentines day everyone. 15 years ago today My husband proposed to me on one knee in this beautiful restaurant in Brisbane with a poem he wrote his self, Violins playing in the background. It was amazing and this year we will celebrate our 14 Wedding Anniversary time fly's when you are having fun. We now have 3 beautiful children 3 beautiful toy poodles.

So today is a very special day for us. We were going to take the kids down to the beach to have dinner! Seafood for dinner. But it is still raining so we will have a wonderful dinner at home.

This morning for Valentines day My wonderful husband bought me a rose gold chain for a vintage locket I bought sometime last year but have never worn it I love vintage gold! Rose Gold I really love. Have a wonderful weekend all.

Closing down sale

Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you all know (who live around the area) that I am having a closing down sale at my shop, for many reasons mostly personal.

I will be closing the shop down on the 28th February.

So until then I am having a huge sale 50% off all furniture and flowers 20% off all other stock. Fabric reduced From $22.00m to $14.00m.

I am going to continue with my website as that is going well and I can run that from home.

At the moment my children come first and I am finding already this year it has been difficult, I am the only one to run the shop and if I can't the shop is closing so after long discussion and many late nights I think it is for the best as family always comes first.

I hope I won't be gone for good I would like to one day again open a shop.

It has been my dream for a very long time to open and run my own little shop of beautiful shabby chic. So for now I will just look after my family and the website. You will still be able to purchase all the things I normally sell in the shop just on-line. And for any of my customers in the local area. delivery will be free.

Until next time, Have a beautifully pink day! Lisa XoXo
