I spy bags, AKA Peek-a-boo!

Meet the newest addition to the Games to Go! 
A wee I-spy bag perfect to keep the dreamlets busy. 

Each 14cm bag is filled with lupins, and hiding amongst them are 10 little wooden disks, stamped with a wee picture on both sides. Squish n' squash, shake & shimmy to move the disks around behind the window. 

How long will it take you to find all 20 little pictures?

I couldn't resist. As I was sewing these bags & stacking them up beside the sewing machine, they reminded me so much of The Princess & The Pea. The kids were most fascinated by what I was doing. Here's an excerpt of the conversation with The Boy,

Boy:  "why have you got a pea?"
Me: "well, they were trying to see if she could feel the pea. That would mean she was a princess".
Boy: "why did she have all those mattresses, I only have 1"
Me: "you're not a princess".

Then Miss T ate the pea!

I'll be giving one of these bags away as a freebie on my Facebook page before listing them in my store.
So get over & get yourself one !!

PS. I love a little helper who wants to be just like mummy...

Little lovelies

Look at these two super cute wee dolls from Cook You Some Noodles (what a great name!). They belong to a friend of mine who was super lucky to jag not one, but 3 of these little wonders. 

Apparently these dollies are rarer than hens teeth in rocking horse poop. Looking at the attention to detail and immaculate construction, I'm not surprised when these dolls sell within seconds of being listed in her web store.

The wee boy has hand painted shoes & a helicopter on his T. I love the fact he has a fake fly sewn into his jeans & a hand crochet toque! The little girl has hand painted mary-janes, a removable skirt & the cutest rosette in her hair. You can even buy a matching bag & sleeping bag for the dolls.

I'm constantly in awe of the beautiful handcraft that can be found around the traps & it really was a treat to meet these two up close & personal.

I see that the next market night is this sunday, so if you like these dolls, I'd be getting my trigger finger ready to grab one before they're gone.
