thankful for

We received a beautiful package of fabric pieces a few weeks back. But it wasn't for me. The lovely (dressmaker extraordinaire)  Rebecca over at Naughty Shorts so very kindly sent Julia a bundle of sweet and pretty sewing fabric. So of course, we spent quite a bit of time going over the different patterns and naming our favourites. It was all very exciting for this sewing girl. Thank you Rebecca!

 Also quite a few weeks back I was so very fortunate to win a Mira Narnie key fob in a giveaway. Which not only looks pretty, but is just so handy for when you need to help kids out of the car, or pull a stroller or bags out. I don't know about you, but I am usually constantly losing my keys. Leaving them on the back seat, the front seat, in my purse. But now I just pop this on my wrist and all is good. And my home set now has a pretty little crochet holder. Thank you Brenda!

And here is a book that I've been waiting ever so long for. I think I purchased it back in the beginning of the year when the price was under ten. Of course, a low price also comes with a long, long wait.

But the wait was worth it. This book is jam packed full of yummy, simple and wholesome recipes. All are based around grains and vegetables. I'm looking forward to menu planning around this one.

Lastly, I had to share that I finally, finally found some vintage clothes in the local op shop. It's been a long time between wearable vintage finds (and at ten each too). The prettiest little full A-Line skirt, a 60's? paisley dress which I will make into a shift to wear with leggings and a handmade shirt dress which I am guessing to be a 50's or 60's day dress. For those that know vintage, I don't need to tell you about the amazing fit and quality of these items.

Wishing you all the very best for the day x
