things i'm loving 'knitted goodness & school photos'
I'm always up for a new way to adorn an ensemble with necklaces, bangles, earrings . . . or another brooch to feed my addiction, like this swirl of strawberries & cream knitted brooch from Prim & Pretty. When gorgeous Rachelle delivered a new collection of brooches to Shop Handmade this week, i knew i'd cry or wrestle any customer who tried to buy this particular beauty. I've already worn it twice & for some strange reason, our German Shepherd lunged at me & tried to bite it off my jacket, clearly he agrees it's good enough to eat.
Love a bit of packaging detail - these brooches come attached to vintage knitting patterns, glee. Rachelle makes amazing brooches & necklaces, involving a bit of crochet, knitting, buttons & ribbons + she's a mummy of 4!!
This week my primary schoolers brought home their school photos. I LOVE school photos, such a time capsule snap shot of how you wore your hair & styled your uniform (or in my case, the ONLY photo evidence i had a childhood). I still can't believe my 4th baby is in year 2 & on the SRC for the 3rd year in a row. He's not power hungry or an obvious leader, more a quiet achiever. I think it's the dimples that keeps the votes coming & eyes which change from green to blue, he's a popular little bloke with the girls in class.
Just because i teased Kristy from Paisley Jade about her 'creative space' offering being held together with pegs yesterday, i promised her some pegs would appear in this post. They are from Typo, totally cute, especially at half price!!
This year my twins are in the same class & sitting next to each other as they are 2nd & 4th shortest in year 4. Their group photo was printed strangely, the whole class has black creepy killer eyes??!! The individual photos were beautiful though, providing a great history of their teeth - which ones are missing each year.
Find out what other people are 'loving' over at Paisley Jade today. Love Posie
EDIT: did anyone else lose all their comments for today's post??
