A Few of my Favourite Things #4

Bows. Every one loves them. They top presents and fancy things. It brings joy to see a bow. Their pretty and sweet, little girls love them, big girls love them. Tie a bow of sting on your finger so you don't forget, (that one never worked for me). So this week my favourite thing is bows.

Here is the treasury I did with some bows that I found on etsy.

My favourite ones out of this collection would be: .

itsastitch - Bow Cocktail Ring

threelittleprincess - Fancy Chocolate Tutu Hair Bow Holder

I really love this treasury thing. Yes now I am addicted.

I cant wait to start wearing these fabulous brooches. Thanks so much Chris for the opportunity to win these great items.

Great Primitive Hearts

In my treasury this week I featured hearts from all different artists.

One of them mentioned me in her blog so I thought I would repay the favour.

Thanks so much to Barb from Prairie Harvest Arts, here's her blog.

And here are some of her lovely items in her etsy shop.

Thanks Barb, I love your work.

A Few of my Favourite Things #3

This week my favourite thing would have to be making my first ever treasury on etsy.

I sat up till 12.30am watching and waiting for those numbers to click down and then all of a sudden there it was, my opportunity. I really didn't think it would be this much fun.

I found some really nice pieces and everyone was so happy to be a part of it. I called it I HEART You, you might have guessed I like hearts. What do you think?

Well now I just have to try and do it again, they say once you do one you get addicted. I think 'they' are right.

A Few of my Favourite Things #2

So here is the second edition of A Few of my Favourite Things.

Bike track

My puppy Max (well he's not quite a puppy any more)

I took my camera out on my daily walk this week and snapped some shots.

One of my favourite things is going for a walk along the bike track down the road from our house, and with this gorgeous Brisbane winter weather we are having how could it not be a favourite.

The sun was shining, not a cloud in the sky. Beautiful.

I have lived in other states where winter is cold, rainy, cloudy, miserable. So now living in Brisbane where winter is sunny and mild, some times cool, but still bearable, how could you not be happy.

I love Queensland it truly is the promise land.

So that concludes A Few of my Favourite Things #2.

The belly button tree!

All done and tied up with string, these were a few of my favourite things.

A Few of my Favourite Things #1

Welcome to 'A Few of My Favourite Things' #1

For the first one I would like to feature an etsy seller that I stumbled over during my endless hours of looking over etsy.

I found Annie Design and her unique hand crafted crochet applique and accessories by accident and I don't know whether it was the gorgeous flowers that she creates or the fact that she comes from Ireland (always had a fascination with Ireland, one day I will make it there for a visit) that attracted me to her shop.

She does such lovely flowers. I have always loved flowers and hearts and she does both. My favourite is the Crochet Applique in Yellow and Pink. I love the colours and she's right it does remind you of apple blossom.

Blue, Lilac and Purple Crochet Flowers

Here a few more of my favourite things from her shop.

Well thats the end of the first addition. All done and tied up with string, these were a few of my favourite things.


My Favourites


Well, I sat down to write a post. What shall I write about. I have been pondering this question.

There are so many things yet nothing really jumps out at me. I read other blogs and everyone else has something to say, why not me.

So I thought, everyone seems to have something they do over and over. Like Hey Harriet with her Shadow Shot Sunday, which I have been meaning to join as it looks fantastic. And Memoirs of a T.S.U.N.A.M.I Girl with her Sunday Snapshot, by the way if you havent read Bec's Blog you should. Very interesting writings about a Brissy girl, just moved to London and her adventures, and she just happens to be my sister. But I digress. So I thought I need something that I do every week. Maybe not on a particular day as I dont know if it will happen that regularly, but something that does happen at least once a week.

So I decided on My Favourites. I know its been done. But I love looking at others blogs and seeing what they like, and cool things they have found. It will be mostly etsy stuff as that is where I seem to be spending my time lately. But any thing that takes my fancy.

Stay tune tomorrow for the first one.
