fun crafty finds at your local shopping centre

Greetings all,
End of January i picked up these cool tapes & stamps from Typo.  It's so great to see shops like these at your local shopping centre, expanding into the craft world with supplies like this - moustache tape, what's not to love??!!
 The tape which didn't photograph well has birds on it, kind of like the bird ribbon from Kikki-K.
Oh the things i have in stall for these crafty supplies . . . can't believe i didn't blog about them sooner??!!  I'll get sewing production style once my studio make over is done (i've cleared out the half of the studio to create an extra bedroom) but i have a head cold & itchy throat - nothing major, just annoying really.  I can't wait to use my new pigeon hole book case (a freebie) & fill every boxed in shelf with craft supplies, oh, life changing it will be!!
So i don't feel like hand sewing tonight, i left my camera at Shop Handmade with my weekend shots & i wanted to share something cool which happened to me today too . . . next post.  So i'm going to watch the Oscars & fall asleep early.  Happy frock knocking (Cate Blanchett, only you could make that dress so stunning, your confidence & sense of style, oh, sheer brilliance & grace).  Love Posie

Poor Posie, I'm with you on the head cold front... blergh! The more I looked at that Cate Blanchett number, the more it grew on me. She is timeless elegance personified. Hope you're feeling 100% real soon.

Get better and rest up. I went to bed early as well - but kept getting sucked in by the pretty dresses:)
Love the ribbon - I might have to see if they still have some of the tape one.

You are too, too kind. I wish I could rock a quilt. Wouldn't that be fabulous. Even better a sleeping bag. Nap time? No problem.

I adore Cate Blanchett's style. I know that dress polarised the "experts" but I thought it was divine. Loved the unexpected yellow bits.
Hope you're feeling better soon. XX

Every time I pop over you've got something new and intriguing to look at. And I loved Cate's dress too.
