Just Lovely!

Everything is lovely today. Although still warm, the breeze is perfect and I don't feel so gross. I've been to my wednesday craft group which is always lovely and people's crafts amaze me, I had lovely left over lamb shanks for lunch that I cooked in our slow cooker for the first time! I've been to the opshops..haven't done this in a while, and found some amazing things for a lovely $13. I also recieved a picture of a painting by my wonderful friend Freya. She painted a pic of Percy. Here are my finds and my Percy in watercolour...

 
A flask and a spice rack
Lovely fabric..thinking a skirt for this
Pretty hangers someone has lovingly covered
Un used pretty facewashers
Craft supplies
Pot rest to add to the 'pot rest into mat' collection
and a lovely craft bag
 
 
 
And this is a watercolour painting of my Percy by a very lovely, talented friend. I think it's amazing.
 
Freya and myself are currently in talks, planning a little giveaway for my 1 year blog anniversary in april. She is currently handpainting a collection of greeting cards that I will give away..so watch this space!
 
Speaking of anniversary's, tomorrow is my 3rd wedding anniversary and friday our 8th year of being together. It's all just lovely and we will celebrate with a lovely dinner out and a movie. Tomorrow I am going to share some of my wedding album with you as a celebration.
 
See you then,
 
Taz xx

  6. i love the pic of percy! does your friend have a web site/etsy page?? you did so well at the op-shops! i am currently hunting fabric/wool covered coat hangers and hoping to eventually swap out all of our metal ones. i did find someone who sells them for $15 EACH (eekk!!), my new plan is to just start making my own with all my random fabric and wool scraps :)
