Busy weekend...

...and far too short boohoo

Half way through January already - an indication that 2011 isn't going to be any slower than 2010.

On Saturday I popped over to Barleylands to pick up some more cupcake buttons and have a bit of a wander.
There is a little shop at Barleylands called Molly Moo's and they do some lovely bits and pieces of home decor. Their style is folksy, distressed, antiqued all the things that I love. They had a new item in there that I'm sure would appeal to Annette (Voodoo Vixen) as she has a bit of a thing for birdcages.

This is being sold as a memo board - it is approx 3ft tall and about 18ins wide and bows out approx 2ins. The metal has been given a 'rusted' finish. As you can see, items can be attached to the bars using pegs. I really like this but I'm not sure I have anywhere it could be located...if they still have it by payday I might have thought of somewhere LOL
Well I said that I went to Barleylands to get some more cupcake buttons and I did - in two different sizes this time. So today I finished off the tea cosy that I was knitting to match the mug hug that I posted a couple of days ago. As you can see from the photo I now have another matching, completed set. These buttons are so cute.

So as another weekend bites the dust I'm thinking about getting stuff ready for work tomorrow (hurumff) a nice lottery win would be so useful right at this moment LOL...still, work enables me to craft so I should be thankful (still think a lottery win is a much better idea though LOL)..................................

Oh I love it! I want one! Problem is flights and accommodation might make it just a tad pricey!

Loving the mug hugs too Toni, well done on making them :)
