Some new jugs and bowls that have come in and they are made in Australia which seems to be a rare occurance these days.

I love the scalloped one.They retail for $95.Very pretty.

Looking forward to next week when we are expecting lots of new goodies for Christmas.
We are off to the business awards on Friday night.One of our customers nominated us for excellent customer service.It was such a nice surprise.I am looking forward to getting all dressed up(its black tie).I really dont expect to win anything as we have only been open a bit over 6 months.

I am having Saturday off work and working Sunday this week as my mother-in -law cant work this Sunday,so will do Sat instead.Nice for a change.
Hope you have a great week and weekend .Chat soon!!!!

Look what came at work yesterday.My favourite flowers from my hubby for our wedding anniversary.Am I a lucky girl or what?

We got well looked after by our gorgeous kids last night.First we had homemade guacamole and corn chips,then chicken in breadcrumbs,wedges and salad.Then homemade macadamia and choc chip cookies.All prepared by my eldest.And the others set the table with pink candles,name place cards and pink champagne glases topped with what else? Pink champagne of course.We are certainly blessed to have such a wonderful bunch of kids!!

Hey have a look at my cream display.The box in the middle is new and has been handmade by some ladies on the Gold Coast.It's just beautiful.I can thank my good friend Helen for giving me their contact.Helen owns Abode Gift and Homewares in Lismore(nth NSW) so if you are ever in the vicinity,be sure to find her.Its well worth a look to see all the pretties in her shop.

This is the ring box,hat pin cushion and bookmarks they do.So pretty.
This morning the truck came to deliver our frames and trusses,and I was caught in my pj's and had to move my car out of the driveway!Then the driver needed help with guidance so I was still stuck out there in my jim jams for half an hour.Then when he got into position he did'nt need me,so I went inside and had a shower,then there is a knock on the door,his remote for the crane was'nt working!What next,I thought.So he had to wait till someone could come out and fix it,so then it was a mad rush to get ready for work,get kids ready for school etc.In the end I had to go, so left them to their devices.Hopefully all will be OK when I get home.
It's a really beautiful day here today and I thought I'd leave with a little quote
'blessed is she who is too busy to worry in the daytime and too sleepy to worry at night"
See ya x

Can you believe it is October already?

Crazy where this year has gone.....

This is a sweet little telephone table that has just come in.I have had it before but it didnt make it to this blog.It is lined with blue toile wallpaper.Beautiful!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend.We were concreting the piers for our extensions.Hopefully I have burnt a few calories off.The weather was'nt very helpful, it decided to pour rain when we had only 4 holes to go.So we packed up, then the sun came out so we decided to finnish,and yep you guessed it,just finnished and it poured agin.Hubby was NOT happy!

Another new addition!It's kind of a greyish/greenish colour and I love the rose mouldings,which dont show up that well.

In the drawer I have some rose trim @ $12 p/m.

Have a lovely day!!!!!
