Today was another quiet day at the shop so I created this cone thingy for Suzy my 18 year old Korean homestay daughter who moved on to new adventures today. Found the idea on a few of your blogs and then in a scrapbooking magazine I bought recently. Suzy is a real pink girl who loves sparkles and frills so I tried my hand at a bit of mixed media. Its a mixture of card, scrapbook paper, the vintage lace from yesterday, craft roses and rhinestones, glitter, lampshade trim, beaded ribbon etc. The cat with wings is Coco who Suzy adored and would carry around all day like a baby. I was really pleased with my first result if I do say so myself! A bit rough and ready because I was pushed for time. I filled it with some pink goodies from the shop.
Tonight I sat at the top of the stairs (again) and watched Cold Case while the Princess went to sleep. It wasn't so bad as I was sewing lace to a vintage cardigan I am restyling. Will show you that another day!Babes, that's what the Princess and I call Steve my husband. Very tongue in cheek from me and totally genuine from Stella. Anyway Babes was downstairs watching the final of Lost.
We were sad in our home today because Suzy left, I of course cried and also because our fabulous New Zealand yachting team lost the America's Cup to Alinghi the Swiss team. It was soooooo close. Next time Team NZ, next time.
