a lovely dainty Sunday morning High Tea, ahhhhhh . . .

Greetings all,
Phew, all but ONE pre-Christmas committment is over, relief!!  Well i have 3 patchwork quilt orders but that's different, they're can-do-in-studio-no-make-up-or-high-heels things.  Today was the delicious, delicate & delightful Handmade Living High Tea at Dalton's Books Store. 
Considering this weekend alone i've driven an extra 100km to rescue my husband who broke down off the Federal Highway (ruptured hose, cost $4 to fix) but got splattered in coolant; worked on 3 seperate P&C fundraisers & got covered in BBQ grease at two of them; attended a fancy book launch; Christmas Tree chopping & walked into 3 seperate spider webs; baked & picked flowers; created 2 terrariums; taxied children to birthday parties . . . it was nice to finally do something lady like, calm, quiet . . . a High Tea.
. . . beautiful food . . .  
. . . designer project tables . . . 
. . . lovely people . . .
Rachel - Shop Handmade, Julie - Shop Handmade, Handmade Living & Handmade Market, Tania - author Handmade Living, Tina - illustrator of Handmade Living.
I'm off to shower, after the final windy shift at the hardware store BBQ fundraiser this afternoon my hair is all knotty & i just feel blah, everything aches.  Back on the diet tomorrow; i've got the teacher's gifts sorted; more stock for Shop Handmade & 2 lunch dates with my husband SET IN STONE this week.  Will be lovely as next weekend my twinnies are having a bunch of friends sleep over (kill me now) to watch Gremlins - remember that movie??!! 
Have great weeks, love Posie

Posie, I got my book last Monday and I am really pleased to be looking and relooking at it and suggesting friends look at it too. Doesn't every suburban library in Australia need a copy? I especially love your door stops! And I am glad to be able to finally put a face to you!

Oh how lovely. I'm happy you took a little breather. I LOVE high tea! I laughed at the fact that you have already planned how the twins and co will be entertained. I loved the Gremlins movie! x

Gremlins, lol. Don't feed them after midnight and keep them away from water!! I remember it well, enjoy!

Thats so funny our oldest when he was in kindergarten we let him watch that movie it took him till 5th grade to not be scared of going up stairs alone! I thought it was a kid movie not my favorite though, I'm with you!

That was an amazing event, I want to go next time!
