open wide come inside...

hello blogging buddies, hope you have had a great start to the week. we are on the other side of the count down to Easter holidays, 6 weeks to go before the kids start to get thoughts of big bunnies jumping through the window to leave yummy chocolate eggs for them to eat. i just love autumn it really is my favourite season, i don't like the heat and living in Brisbane the humidity gets unbearable some days...bring on the chilly days i say! actually this morning was a bit fresh, YAY ~_~
well happy to say i managed to remember my camera yesterday and took some snaps of Lilly cottage and friends in all its full splendour. the lovely Linda has been sewing up a storm and has even ordered in lots of scrummy goodies to feather your nest.
Lilly cottage and friends is one of those stores that you can spend ages in spotting different little treasures in every nook. have a little peek at all of these pretties...
pretty bag charms
paper cranes
sweet figurines
original paintings
settler bears
hand made hearts
everything beachy
love this display
more settler bears
cute cute cute
french inspired pillows
and my favourite display..easter bunnies...actually those two big chennile bunnies have already found a new home...
happy count down to easter!!

sundays are fun days

i cant help but love Sundays...i get to spend the day out at Lilly cottage and friends 'playing' in the shop, creating lovely displays, drinking coffee and chatting the day away...whats not to love?? i must confess i haven't finished much this week...i have started lots of pretty designs and kids got in the way this week ~_~ however i managed to find some pretty little gifts to pop in the shop.
3 sets of blue and white china cups and saucers
a lovely set of 'Sarah Kay' swap cards framed in non reflective glass
each one is so sweet! i painted the frames and shabbied them around the corners...they are just so special and would brighten any little girls room.
this one is my favourite.
here they all are...sorry about the photo but they really are sweet in person. (click on the photo to make it larger)
and i have been working on some sweet handmade items for our Easter display and have put together a display of these gorgeous flocked bunnies which i will sell in bundles for people to buy for their own Easter displays.
they are really stunning...i love flocked things especially books!
i really wish you could all pop in to say hello...but for most of you this is the next best thing. i must remember to take my camera in tomorrow and post some pics of the actual cottage on here.
have a great Sunday
