In Need of a Russian Doll Intervention

image from here

Well I could think of worse things to be addicted to I suppose.
I have just completed my first Etsy Treasury. You guessed it Russian Dolls.
Don't know why I haven't done it sooner.
Maybe I thought it would be difficult, turns out I was wrong.
ETSY seems to be getting easy to navigate lately.
I love ETSY, if you have never visited, do your self a favour and pop in. 24hr shopping and the most amazing unique things you won't find in the shops.
Just when you thought you'd seen it all.... yes it is, they come in all shapes,sizes and fabrics. Who would of thunk it image from here
PS I'll try to post about something different next time,hope I'm not losing you on The Dolls:)

Getting my Shopping Fix

Images from here

I have taken to doing a bit of shopping on line lately. I have been working more hours at the toy shop and just don't have the spare time to stroll the shops.
I was fortunate last Friday to do some real life shopping with miss Annie.
She was excited to show me her new fav shop that has just opened up a few doors down from their Advertising Company/ Coffee Cafe. IMAGE from here
I had a lovely chat with Jess of Belle Bazaar. She has a beautiful shop in Lumley St Mt Gravatt.
Full of handmade goodness and cutezies.
I just had to buy something and was drawn too, these cute Russian Doll Stationary Sets, (surprise) by Kawaii for you.
The visit has totally inspired me to get back into doing the markets again. Belle Bazaar are running a Twilight Market. Find more here
The first Market evening will be held on the 30th April from 3-8pm @ The Mt Gravatt Showgrounds Community Hall and surrounds
Live Music
Great Food
Fantastic Shopping
and will be raising funds for Breast Cancer Research. image from here
my next purchase,when my paypal account recovers

Brother Love

I often say to my girls how lucky they are to have sisters. Someone to share their secrets,talk about boys,share clothes , plait their hair, playing dress up and dollies with.
But they always screw their faces up at me.
I have been told by older friends who seem to have fantastic loving relationships with their sisters, why don't my girls get on like that. And I have been informed it comes later.
I always longed for a sissy to play with, instead I was stuck with a brother.
Don't get me wrong we had fun.
And I was reminded of how nice it is to have a sibling,this week, no matter what gender. It's that bond you share growing up.
He went to the local markets this week and when I saw him later that day I asked him, quite cheekily,did ya buy any vintage stuff for me. He jumped out of his seat and said he had. I thought to my self, oh no what crap has he bought me and I'm going to have to pretend how awesome it was... to my surprise I didn't have to pretend... It's made me smile all week:) someone who truly knows me.
I know doesn't take me much to get excited, but it's the simple things in life that I love♥
