Hello and happy advent Sunday.
This post merrily follows on from the craftie posts we have been sharing.
My mini1's love opening doors and seeing pictures or chocolates but this year I have opted for a hide a gift and seek the bag kind of advent calendar instead.
The girls enjoyed the hunting and foraging and finding their striped bags of yellow and white with a bold pink dot and Dec 1 on it.
Inside their treat bags were a hand made white ceramic hanging decoration, a paper heart with date on and joined together with best of British liberty print fabric. Yes I did slip into pink for the girls and blue for the boy and of course we couldn't forget a little choc and although I didn't make the chocs I did enjoy eating a few whilst making the decorations!
Happy advent my mini1's and to you too xx

With nativity costumes being made, rehearsals and more tipples being poured into the puds and cakes me and minimini1 took a break to get cRafTy!
Minimini1 loved the task if foraging and sorting all the 'just right' pompoms and then we got going and made lots and lots of Christmas cupcake toppers.
Minimini1 couldn't resist making one for wHiTe chRisTmaS mOuSe tOo....

Although I'm partial to wearing an apron just because I love them and I think they make a gorgeous addition as does a scarf, a neckpiece or fabulous bag, today my apron saw plenty of cleaning action!
I've decided to show it as the main item as it was worn all day, yes my home glistens!
Fun chunky neckwear in the form of wooden beads were added as was one of my hand made birds.
Super light weight denim skinny jeans and pastel petrol pumps were added too!

A lovely bright sunny summer morning so what better than a white linen dress with asym hemline put together with all the necessary trims that are needed on a school run; super light weight cotton floral printed vintage scarf, yolk yellow butterfly cinch belt, burnished metallic leather sandals and neon pink Cambridge satchel company satchel.
