Sun Glorious Sun

The Sun shone today and there was not a cloud to be seen.

Since we moved its either been raining or blowing a gale, so today was the first day we spent a good amount of time outside.

On our return from feeding our chooks this morning (who are staying at my mums until we get our chook run up to scratch), we had to do some shopping. On our way to the supermarket we noticed an art easel sitting out the front of a local op shop, 5 dollars later we loaded it into our boot and headed for home.

Yes we forgot to do the shopping.

It has a blackboard/paint clip on one side and a whiteboard on the other. Very simple but for $5 its a bargain and the kids thoroughly enjoyed spending some much needed time soaking up some vitamin D.

Op-Shops

J and B go to crèche every Thursday morning, for an hour and a half so I go to the op shops in my area, a little bit of me time. Sometimes I come away with nothing but other times I find great things, and today was one of those times. I do all my sewing using pre loved sheets bedding and large items of clothing. Today I hit the jackpot with sheets, all good quality thick cotton sheets. I also picked up a few other goodies for my little girls birthday. Some small hankies and a spelling game with all the pieces. It was a good day.

Material 002

Oh and here’s a sneak peek of what I made for B’s second birthday. The pants are made from the aqua green material on the right and the top is from a tutorial I got from Dana made it.
