Something different

 Well another week has come and gone, soon Spring will be here and I for one can't wait. Its been a long cold winter and after such a beautiful sunny day today I  have had a taste of whats to come. I have been sewing like crazy all weekend trying to get a magazine project ready to send off  but I can't share it just yet, sorry. Soon though!!!  I have had a fun time changing things around in my sewing room, I thought I would bring a bit of early Spring to my shelf and share it with my prettiest tilda doll.
 Working with such pretty fabrics always makes me smile and I added a new zipper pull to a new project. I love the tiny log cabin.  Such a clever design.
 I also changed and added a few new things to my kitchen, I had all red stuff on here but now I have added a bit of aqua I love it  even more. Its funny how just adding  a few things can  change to the whole look.
 My pretty Cath Kidston cup, I wish I bought more when I saw this in a shop last year.
 Yesterday I was in K Mart and found this gorgeous jug for only $12, I liked it so much I bought 2. I put one in the bathroom for decoration. Also the little tin, I thought that was just so cute and for $5 I mean really could I leave it behind. These goodies are on my kitchen hutch and I love looking at them.
I also changed my Greengate shelf around, these cups are my most favourite. Such beautiful colours and shapes. I do use them occasionally, whats the point in having nice things if you can't use them. My grandmother used to say that when I was young and we would go to visit. She would serve tea in pretty china cups and I was always worried I'd drop it.

I have roast chicken in the oven  and it smells delicious so I had better get my vegies ready, wishing you all a wonderful week and thankyou for stopping by.

Love your kitchen decorating! I am so jealous that you can buy GreenGate! There is no dealer in the USA and shipping makes it too expensive for me to buy. Love all the things you are doing! XO

Beautiful fabric collection you have there. Love the bring colors. What sweet Tilda doll. I have a Tilda craft book that I just purchased for some inspiration.
I love your kitchenware. I love the red and aqua. A wonderful color combo.
Roasted chicken, sounds wonderful. I can't wait for cooler weather so I can do some roasting.
Have a wonderful week.
