Some pretties

My prettiest pretty of all, the toothless Princess!! She's dressed and ready to go to her best friend Ruchitha's birthday party. As you can see she is wearing her 'high heels'!!!


and just a few more pretty treasures brought home from one of my decluttering trips to the 'op shop'.


I adore these quilted fabric bags that I found stuffed inside a box of yukky fabric! Wonder what they were made for, hankies, stockings . . .?


such beautiful colours,


I am going to sell them in my web store . . . soon . . .


and last but not least, the Princess and I sat in fascination the other night and watched from our grown up room window this plump black bird bathing in our bird bird, he was having a wonderful time splashing about. I wish the photo was clearer but it was early evening and the light was all wrong from where we watching.


ha, ha, that's my bird bath back on as you might guess!!! Love the cherub's cheeky cheeks!

This weekend we are having a stay at home weekend, some house cleaning and just general pottering about and relaxing and maybe even a bit of crafting.

Hope you all have a great weekend

Bye for now

Love Princess's sweet dress. Don't you just love the toothless phase ? Hee hee !! Boy , that brings back memories of my son :) Love those bags, I think they are for lingerie. Hope you are doing well, Seems like I haven't been over to say hi in so long !! My apologies :) Love your new picture on your sidebar, not that the hat wasn't cute too :) Happy Weekend !! :)

The little 'Princess' looks like she is shooting up in height or is it her big girl heels? She looks gorgeous in her party dress and I hope she had fun at the birthday party.
Hope you have a relaxing weekend.

Your Princess looks so cute without her teeth and in her lovely dress. Why is it that the toothless smile suits her well though in my case (just thinking, it isn't real!) it would be a nightmare?! I love the little bags, they are gorgous.
Thanks for giving me the link of the Marie Antoinette bits and pieces swap. I am still in doubt. It's a time issue, but I know that I will have a shortage in time anyhow! Well I have a few days left to think it over.
Enjoy your weekend, I love it when we don't have any obligations in the weekend.

Isn't she precious and so cute without those teeth! Her dress is darling also. Those bags are pretty colors.

Connie said...

She's a cutie for sure, but be sure and tell her the "dangers" of wearing high heels for years, honey! Oooooh, my aching old feet! Love her princess dress. I'll be wearing a similar one to church on sunday. Red polka dots with ruffles and......well, it's pretty. I just hope I don't look like a "woman of the night" that day! LOL

Connie

Aww your little girl looks so sweet in her dress and 'high heels'. The bag is gorgeous, I had an Art Deco envelope style leather one with a silky lining which was for lingerie X

How cute The Pricess looks.
Oh it so dangerous to declutter and go to the Op Shops. I am so glad one of our local Op shops puts a donation bin out the front each mornig then I don't 'have' to go in
