Lovely Mail

 Yesterday I had a great day getting lots of bits of pretty in my mail box.
I received this lovely book in the mail from Amanda after being the lucky winner of her giveaway and I'm thoroughly enjoying reading it, thank you so much Amanda.
And in preparation for a special niece who is turning one soon I bought some bamboo flannel to make her a poppy doll and some bamboo towelling to make bibs and burp cloths for a couple of mother's to be.
This organic fabric I'll use for the baby gifts and for the poppy doll clothing.
I love organic food and we love making anything with chocolate in it so as a special treat I bought some chocolate chips and some Australian organic olive oil from here.

I haven't been shopping in ages it's not something I enjoy doing often anymore but I did enjoy this moment of internet shopping. Now I just need to start making but with it being the girls last week of holidays together I think we'll just try and hang out, crafting might just have to wait.

Have a wonderful Wednesday


  1. Looking forward to seeing the results of all your "ingredients"
