The little birds...

If you watch little birds you will see they are busy and happy! Using whatever they can find they create the most gorgeous little nest.
I would be the little bird with some glittery thread in her nest!
We can be like this. Happily working away with the things that are available to us to create a beautiful and happy home.
All the while with a little song in our heart.

A new bathroom.

My daughter this year bought her first unit. This was a massive event! She loves all things Shabby Chic, pretty and her favourite colours are pale blue and tiffany blue. 

I had been crocheting away in pale blue cottons and chenille and by the time she had her place she had matching facecloths, hand towels and bath mats. 

Bath mats are really easy, chenille works as it is absorbent and also dries quickly. It's hard to find pretty bath mats too so making your own is an idea. Each year for the last few chenille has been in cheap shops here and only a couple of dollars a ball, but at the end of winter it goes out for $1. If you use white once your project is made up you can dye it any colour you want! I currently have some white and am thinking of dying as the colour choices have been basic and this way there is no limit!

Chloe was so happy with her new bathroom and BATH (we all love baths!) that she took a photo for me. It is super cute.

When saving towards a place of your own a "glory box" is an old fashioned but wonderful idea. A place to save things towards your dreams. What could be nicer? Chloe always kept a glory box of things for when she had a place of her own and making things for her collection has always been fun for me.
