Booze, babies and beautifying!!

This month has been wine bottling month and the beetroot was ready and also drinkable which was a bit of a suprise as usually it likes to sit for at least 6 months.

This was for a pressie so it has a hand painting 'Quirky House' label. Usually I just slap a little sticker on . So a bit posh for special people haha.

Ingredients are very natural. Home grown beetroot, water, sugar, yeast. I forgot there is also lemons added. No chemicals are used. I use a country recipe book which is quite old fashioned so no fancy thermometers/gizmos/additives.  Cheers me dears!

You may remember this little girlie on the left. She has had a new hairdo, gone is the long flowing locks and in comes this...

....little bunches tied with a pretty blue ribbon, what do you think....10 years younger at least! I'm now going into the mobile hairdressing business, wonder if my craft scissors are sharp enough.

Just had to buy this little postcard, it made me smile which is a good enough excuse.
Aww, memories of when the kiddies were little, and did this...a lot! Have been asked 'why did you buy this'?  My reply...'Well, you're smiling at it as well, so it's done it's job'!! haha

Another family photo. Sheep are for sitting on. Smile please.

2 Very Posh Ladies!

I do love lace and frilly things....although you wouldn't really know with some of the things I've made! But let me introduce you to Antonette and her big sister Bella. They are both made from vintage cotton and have a mixture of antique and new lace. Their hair is made from a soft, dove grey wool.

Arn't they just the poshiest frocks ever! They both have little books of treasures which comprises of little bits of their favourite material,lace and papers.

Sitting in a froth of lace, and with her kitten heels, she has a vintage fashionable top with two embroidered flowers. She has little pearl earrings and a fancy headpiece.

Bella has a lovely lace top on which compliments her favourite lacey skirt. She has high heels and a lovely little cosarge in her hair.

                                                      Books of Treasure, full of lace, material and papers.

Sitting atop an old singer sewing maching. (their hair is darker in this photo, which in real life it is a lovely pale dove grey)

........and this is how it all began. You will turn into swans and go to the ball Cinderalla!!

Here is our doggie family, dad, mum and baby,  pausing for breath in their favourite place at the forest (they have decided the beach is also no 1 place to be)
