black garden

today i went to the hardware store with Andrew to pick up some bulbs for one of the kids programs he was doing, and of course i got distracted (actually, i only came because i wanted to be distracted..).

But can you blame me? check this out! i bought a packet of Black sunflower seeds and Black poppy seeds! Have you ever seen anything like it???

i know you can get black grass, and i have seen black hollyhock. I wonder how weird it would be to have a "black" garden this summer..! it could look like this...

would you feel scared?

every shade of green

With Paddy's day just around the corner, i had a little "green browse" through etsy, and look at all the goodies i found!

St Patrick's day in Ireland is a slightly less classy event, mainly involving a lot of beer, really terrible but entertainingly bad parades, and the inevitable brawls.

Overall, quite a strange day!

this week we welcomed in our first Irish niece and cousin!

To celebrate, Poppy and i made hugs and kisses (X's and O's!) shortbread biscuits to welcome her!

Poppy mostly sat there and looked suspicious of the dough.

The bushfires that have swept through the bush in Victoria, Australia have left so many people homeless and with nothing to their names. Some have even lost family members, and many where just grateful to escape with their lives.

So, as a result, many handemade appeals have sprung up, in order to raise money to help these people rebuild their lives.

Recently, i donated this dress to

All postage from this store is free, and all proceeds from here go to the people in need, so have a look around and see if there is anything fancy!

whos a little chunk?

The Daffodil Report

I bought some daffodils yesterday, they are still buds and tightly closed...

Soon they will burst out their yellow trumpets and sing to let you know that there will be 10% off everything in my store the day that all my daffodils open up! Yes that is right!

So you will have to keep checking back for the Daffodil Report to see how they are doing! Actually they are opening already, much faster than i thought!

i love buttons

so i went button shopping today.

The lady in the shop was nice but seemed to be on a whole different time scale in that shop. you should have seen how slow she was counting the buttons. i think it took about half an hour.

But, for all her counting (and recounting), she did seem to give me one extra of every button i bought... and then she looked at me once she finished counting and said "For Luck" and smiled. I have no idea what that was about!

ANyway. lots of buttons..!!
