Yup that's what I'm doing, thought I would share some with you!
First up a visit Julie's lovely Threadbear Cottage in TeAwamutu. Julie has a great blog & her wee shop is heavenly!!!
Welcomed with a smile & a good ole natter, an introduction to her beautiful old dog, then off the cutiest little shop on the planet!
Julie's beautiful homestead, a feast for the eyes!!
The view over at the cottage................................Mmmm red love, that table & chairs, me want!
A wee bike ride anyone??
I love this sign hanging on the old singer. Note, this sign is a total lie about Julie's shop............There is not one piece of junk!!!!!!!!
I did buy quite a few treasures, but didn't take photo's, as some I will pop in my gift box for a few special people, maybe even a giveaway on my blog as I see I am coming up to 300 posts.
Julie makes the sweetest dolls, gollies, potpourri that smells out of this world! There are soaps, up cycled cushions, candles & so many country craft goodies to make a husband run with his wallet!!
Thanks again Julie, what a lovely break for a long journey, I wish I could have stayed longer, but when you have a hubby with you, one needs to be mindful that even though we love to chat non stop about all things crafty, our men folk just don't get it!
Next a visit with some very special family members, we wanted a picnic at Brooklyn Zoo but the weather was almost wintery! But we did have our picnic, we went to the Chinese garden.
Another stop found us with some 'friends' that wanted to hop in the car with us, very tempting.
|see the baby??|
Last but not least, I bought some cool wee button folks from Wendy.........................
