This is problematic...

So obviously this is a problem.... And due to the lack of wardrobe doors in the master bedroom this is what I get to look at when I wake up and go to sleep... Unfortunately our mini wardrobe does not allow for nice wooden coat hangers... they are tooooo bulky!

So I have been working on some of these....

I got the super cute pattern from here... dottie angel blog, one of my all time favourites! And of course when i realised they were called "happy hangers" I knew they would be perfect:)

So now I have a small section of this.....

And obviously that makes me a lot happier than the original! Now when I wake up in the morning and look at my happy hangers... ans it certainly makes me happy:) As does hanging up the washing... i know, you obviously need some too.

Oh I'm sorry did you say fresh?

Yes. Mega fresh! Straight from the mushroom growing box! They tasted just as delicious as they looked! YUM YUM! As it was not originally my mushroom growing box I am unsure of the suppy of mushrooms that will happen... but these were so delicious that if I never get to try anymore that will be ok too:)

My precious fur baby deserves gifts. Handmade gifts.

You've all met my beautiful bunny.... well she is fat. Too fat. She is looking at bit mangey as she is moulting and too fat to preen her own back. She doesn't reallllly enjoy a brush... and she told her dad that her mum plucking out her moulty fur is not only a little bit twingey but also a little demoralising. 
So she is on a diet. As a result we feed very very sorry for her... her usual routine is disrupted! At bedtime at night she is waiting by her food bowl for some delicious grains.. and they do not arrive! Only hay! Oh the disappointment of the small round basketball-with-a-head mini lop...

To alleviate her feelings of unloved-ness I have started crocheting her a round rug to sit on.... this is the beginnings...
 You can see as I have never ever crocheted anything round... it has gone a bit frilly... although it makes it better for my Suki-La who nuzzles the frillies...

This is Suki's first introduction to her rug...

You can see the excitement building as she snuggles into the center... yes. this is my rug. yes. my mum still loves me even though she is starving me. (note: on a vet prescribed diet - don't call the rspcsa - my bunny is loved and cared for:)

And then finally as you can see. The rug is loved. It is continually growing... it needs to be wide enough for a fully length stretch... then it will go into our bedroom for little Suki-La to sit on while she protects us while we sleep... you think I lie... no. She is the night watch for our pack... In the day I am watching... In the night Suki is watching:) And cold painted floorboards aren't nice for the newly slimmed bunny bottom on a long lonely night watch shift!

I have since learnt that you are supposed to add 1 extra stitch in every 4... working on it:) The rug is now nearly done:)

Bit of Friday afternoon thrifting...

I must say I am not a great thrifter.... I like to look but I don't often buy things, unless of course there is a purpose. I also don't go very often...

But today! I was on my way home and I remembered a new retro/antiques store opened about 5 minutes from my house, thought I should probably check it out!

This is what I came home with ....

Super cute right? I picked up a big piece of vintage cutey aqua spotty fabric and a vintage kokeshi doll! I wanted to start a kokeshi collection and this one just jumped out at me!:) I think she might need a little bit of love... I think her hair might need a sanding and a revarnish... and I need to find her a special new spot in my house!
