big decisions from a little time

Today is a day I've been putting off - lack of storage plus a high amount of sentimentality spells disaster when deciding which childhood toys are to be kept, which are for charity and which realistically need to be binned - noooo!

Here are some of the ones that are just too special to let go so room will just have to be found.

my first cash register - if only a trip to the supermarket cost $3.95 these days

feminists look away - i was so excited with my carpet sweeper back in the day

I had forgotten how lovely this cardboard 'preschool alphabet' is - definitely a great decorator item to keep

An apple a day...

I couldn't resist this super sweet pincushion by Morgan Wills when I meandered through last Saturday's Craft Victoria 'craft hatch' market. As Morgan pointed out it is the perfect size and squishiness for a pincushion and I find I can never have too many as I work from a number of different tables during the course of a day.

Also at the markets was the talented Susan of Spin Spin whose stand as always was brimful of yummy textiles. Plus I couldn't resist a BYO coffee cup by hookturn as a gift for a coffee addict friend of mine.

Lots of other beautiful things were on display too. I do love a good market where I am the lookee and not the stallee!

Lipp Service

Things have been a little lack lustre in blog world as I put the finishing touches on my new collection. All will be unveiled very soon! In addition to designing I have also had fun revamping my studio space of late. I couldn't wait to hang this beautiful illustration I bought from lipp design (my talented neighbour at a pre-Xmas market). A girl on a mission with a teapot and a handbag -what could be more Lyssy May? This lovely lady now now sits above the workbench for inspiration.
Also helping the creative juices are fresh flowers, jars on newly installed shelves and a stack of heirloom pincushions (my favourite is the hexagonal hand patchwork one made by my mother in the retro print).
