The 2009 Advent Blog~a~long
I had a lot of fun with Blogtober and just found this Christmas blog-a-long so thought I would join in. It will be a challenge timewise as things get hectic closer to Christmas but this time of year there is always a lot to blog about. If you would like to join in, click the link above.
I'm still working on tidying up and decluttering my sewing room. I can see about 5 square metres of shiny polished floorboards now which is making me feel all happy and shiny inside lol. I still have a big box of fabric scraps to deliver to the kindy or school. I went over the bookshelves some more and collected another two bags of donations which I dropped off at the Oppy this morning. Of course I couldn't resist a peek inside this time. I also couldn't resist this vintage china elephant either! I am pretty stingy so $6.99 from an op-shop hurt a bit but he is worth it! He is up safe on a high shelf away from Pearl's clutches (I hope) so he doesn't meet the same fate as the little china puppy she was given at another op-shop a few weeks ago! He lost his tail on our front verandah step. He didn't even make it inside the front door (sigh).
Then there was this biscuit tin that reminded me of the ones I had been admiring so much over at Poppy Lane. Kali has the most beautiful pictures of sweet vintage things and panoramic and charming Tasmania where she lives. Her home is like a postcard.
Lastly there is the little rolling pin for Pearl. She will love having her own to roll the gingerbread dough.
It is quite small and light so I am less concerned about Michael getting concussion ;)
101 BUTTONS from my collection! I will draw this late on Monday evening Adelaide time.
