Getting sorted... is a chilly day for us, and a wet one! I had to de-ice the car for the first time this morning, and that always signals the arrival of woolly-sock-weather! Regardless of wanting to hibernate under the duvet, the children are back at school, and a lot needs doing around here! I apologise if I haven't replied to all your wonderful, warm comments in previous posts, but it seems 'Mr. Time' has turned into 'Mr. Scrooge' in it's giving! I do so love hearing from you, and I read and appreciate every word! I'm trying to cram in as much as I possibly can in a day, and the midnight oil has been burning for the last few nights too! Today has seen me do a little Christmas shopping, and I've been sorting out and finishing off a few projects. Oh, and a little reading over a cuppa. I found this edition of 'Homemaker', and in it was a supplement with the loveliest vintage sewing images. Pure eye-candy! I don't quite know what I'm going to do with all the pull-outs, but I'm pretty sure I'll find something to do with them. I was thinking of photocopying the images, and using it to gift wrap pressies...amongst other things!

Apart from swooning over these gorgeous pages, I have managed to list some of my items on my Facebook page. Do pop over and say hello! Just click ♥HERE♥ On there you will find...

'Take a leaf from this book' bookmarks...finally a batch is completed!

'Posh Pooch Daschund' Keyring/Book bag buddies...
'Sleepy Cloud' Hair clip tidy...
'Itty-bitty birdie' Christmas ornament...

 So, a little of this and a little of that! What have you been up to today?

  1. you have been busy! just love that little dog. I wonder if you followed a pattern? always wanted to make one of those. Heather x

  2. Hi Heather! Glad you like the doggie! I drew my own template by hand, and then made it accordingly...a little fiddly, but worth the effort! Thank you so much for popping in and spreading cheer! Tania ♥

  3. You've been a busy lady! I love those cloud barrette holders- my daughter would adore one. Maybe I'll whip one up for her for Christmas. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hello Tania, lovely, lovely items! Love the little red and white bird. Have nipped over to your page and liked you, and was amused to find one of my friends who 'found' you through my blog! Small world?

    Love the magazines too, haven't seen Homemaker but it looks lovely, will certainly check that one out!

    Love Claire xx

  5. Hi Tania,

    Oh to have had frost already! Please don't send it to Holland yet :-) We had our first hail storm today. It made me realise winter is approaching and with that Christmas. I think I may follow your example and do some early Christmas shopping too. The bookmarks, dog and birds you made look lovely!

    Happy Wednesday!

  7. Dear gal, you really do sound as though you've scarcely had a minute to stop and catch your breath. Everything you've been creating and reading (those magazines have me swooning!) looks so beautiful, and I appreciate that you shared so much loveliness with us in the midst of what sounds like a thoroughly hectic time.

    ♥ Jessica
