Whats important

I just want to add a note..

as far as the fires and floods here is Australia... (my brother and nieces live in Victoria) there is just so much going on.. with plane crashes and wars.. I think it makes us realise what is important.. not material things... but people...those we many people forget what is the right thing to do (as in help those who need it and to show love not hate)
Tragic times like this tend to bring people together and restores our faith in humanity
I hope all those who are in pain and sorrow find happiness, those that have past on may angels take you and may you sleep well and in peace.
But out of tragedy we also hear stories of love, hope, survival and people helping those they didn't even know..bless em I say
It makes me realise to tell everyone I care about how I feel and to live each day like its your last.. and most of all be in the moment and enjoy it ... and check out my hubbys work in last blog before this one I love it!!!

good night all
take care

Hi everyone

Sorry its been a while... I hope you all have been well and I have ALOT of reading to catch up on!!

I want to thank all of you who have been visiting me.. I haven't been rude and will get back to you asap xxxx I really appreciate your comments

OK an update on me

Our new additions (the flower garden) has survived the heat YAYYYYYY!!!!!

AND I am working on our website for the kids stuff it's it's nooo where near finished BUT I'm having a go... I'm actually happy with it so far and we have great stuff!

I have also been too hot and well really upset over the fires to really come on here, (fire tends to hit a nerve and my brother is in Victoria) our thoughts and prayers are with everyone down there and in QLD with the victims of the floods

BUT I will make an effort to read your blogs and write more!! I do actually miss it... I'm becoming addicted aarrgghhh hahahaha

I have been designing clothes for kids so hopefully I will have some up on the site too..

Oh we took Lily to Mittagong Church on Wednesday to "cubby club" like a mothers group and my hubby had more fun than Lily and I... (he's is really coming out of his shell... he was painfully shy) it was lovely to be so welcomed! gosh I'm jumping subjects here but my mind is going a mile a minute

In the meantime here is a pic of little Lily with her bean bag from one of our suppliers I'm really impressed with the quality its got a leather feel to it yet when she got some of her dinner on it wiped off!!! They are available for boys and girls in many different designs.. as well as ottomans and collapsible storage boxes let me know if you like em!

My hubby has been really busy restoring a cabinet from our shop.. It's not finished but I am soooo proud of him I have to show it off.. I'm hoping he will become confident enough to sell the stuff he restores.. BUT this a few other pieces will stay at home with us. This cabinet actually looks better now than it did when we got it! have a squizzie and let me know what you think! I think he has missed his calling hahaha .. yeah I'm raving but I'm just so chuffed and excited for him he still has to do the drawers.
anyway gotta run I'm really wanting to do this website while Lily is sleeping

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend

Hugs to you all
