O Bargain of Bargains

I come from a close-knit family of bargain hunters..well, the females in our family are. So when it came to buying these super duper shoes at a super duper bargain price, I just had to share, especially as I know my lovely family read this blog...

So here's my bargain...

These shoes were $79.95 but I paid................


Yep, you read right, $7.50. I know...fantastic bargain huh?

My Creative Space..

has a few works-in-progress waiting to be worked on..

My zinnia cushion is nearly all cut out..I love this Amy Butler August Fields fabric

And this was the first of fifteen flower granny squares to be made up, for a bubby blanket. I've got 3 complete, and 3 in progress at different stages. Have also added in a little bit of musky pink to the mix for some contrast..

Many more creative spaces to be found over here. Why not check out a few and say 'hello'.

Loving Levi

is easy. Just look at this cuteness...

Levi is now 4 months and here's a few things about him...
* He has more than doubled his birth weight, now weighing 7.2kgs
* He is still waking twice at night for feeds (am working on this!)
* He loves playing on the floor with his toy mobile
* He snuggles fleecy blankets when he's tired
* He loves to chat
* He had rice cereal for the first time yesterday, after recommendations from the MHN, and loved it.
* He still has all his hair, and he has a chin dimple like me!
* Everyone is still completely besotted by him, even when he's grumpy :-P

Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb

I have fond memories of rhubarb from my childhood (mainly apple & rhubarb pie or crumble), but hadn't eaten it in a very long time. So when I saw this recipe for 'Rhubarb & Orange Upside-down Cake' in the current issue of Real Living I thought....why not give it a go?

Verdict : Yum!

Snuggly Scarves

Scarves are definitely an essential item in any winter wardrobe..well, in my mind anyhow.

Over the last month, I rustled up a couple of scarves for loved ones and here they are....

A knitted, super cosy grey scarf for Rohan...a simple rib design but manly :-P

And a crocheted skinny stripe scarf for my dear friend Cass...

I have another skinny stripe scarf on my hook at the moment, but instead of the teal shades, I'm using two shades of red..not sure who this one's for yet either ...

Stay warm xx
