Sweetest Little Sewing Kit....

I wonder, have any of you ventured into the sales lately. Have to say I don't really jump for joy with the sales these days, I don't do crowds and never seem to see anything that really catches my eye. Though when I saw this beautiful little sewing case with some treats inside in Monsoon, I had to have it, especially as it was half price. It really is the sweetest little sewing case I have ever seen. Is meant for children but, well, I am a little girl at heart, does that count ;~)

It even comes with some cute Handmade with love for you labels.

So Miss. Poppins didn't feel left out, I treated her to a beautiful outfit that was half price. Monsoon really is a favourite of mine, though alas only in the sales, as I think is rather a luxury for me to shop there regularly.

And Master Poppins shall look a very smart boy on his 3rd birthday in his half price Next outfit, of course I shall swap the white linen shirt for a pretty pink one :)

And although not a sale purchase, one I was very happy with.

I was also happy with a felt corsage I made, I really enjoyed making it. There is nothing like a big, colourful corsage to cheer one up on these rainy days.

I shall leave you with a photograph of Miss. and Master Poppins' lunch. The pretty plates and egg cups looked so sweet, I had to take a photograph. As any blogger knows, a camera is always close to hand, even when littlies are doing something they shouldn't, like painting pink gloss on clean patio door windows.

Mmmmm think I would rather look at their lunch ;~)

Happy shopping, making, thrifting, holidaying :)
