pink poppy bag for my etsy shop using a gorgeous opshop floral tablecloth in soft caramel with a contrasting pink poppy. I lined it with a soft salvaged white pillowcase that has similar pinks but in daffodils. I was going to make a few more bags today but my friend dropped in so we ended up at the Happy River Cafe for lunch. yum!

it was a big happy weekend this last one. my gorgeous friend got married, i sold some sweet tea towel cushions and i bought an apartment! they say things happen in threes. so there are some big changes ahead for me as i am downsizing on the road to financial independence. i know i'll miss my little house but i'm ready for a change.
meanwhile today i made this tea towel nz wildflower cushion for an old friend who wanted one from my shop that got snapped up before i could reserve it. i hope she likes it.
my friends wedding was brilliant on saturday, she looked beautiful, lovely service, the reception at a port melbourne pub was great - excellent food, stunning flowers, great speeches and some 80's dancing! here are some of the flowers I have dismantled from one of the centrepieces, they were stunning all combined together but my cat ate all the tuilps!

And look at this little fellow I found lurking in my tiny lemon tree. I love finding insects like this in the garden as it makes me think the tiny eco system I have created must be doing okay.
