things i'm loving . . . 'the stocking fillers of my week'

Greetings all,
'twas a week filled with pockets of joy, the stocking fillers of my life, so for PaisleyJade's Things I'm Loving this week, it's lots of things!!
My little fella has been doing the old 'can i just fall asleep in your room' routine, why yes almost 8 year old, while i'm still your hero, you can spend as much time with me as you wish (his Peter Alexander eye mask is new, he said girlie would be Ok) . . .
 
 our school did a fundraiser with mangoes, gosh they smell great . . .
 goodness this is cute, my son has a collection of felt acorns & wanted to put them in a basket, we found a mini trolley - note the tiny baby felt acorns (navy & brown) in the child seat!! 
 We have our fair share of sulphur crested cockatoos in Canberra (they changed the spelling to sulfur when i was at Uni, but i'm still confused!!)
 Oh how lovely is this clip on glass mushroom, perfect for my toadstool loving 3rd girl.
 Treated myself to a new white ceramic love heart (large one) for about $3 . . .
 moment of weakness at the supermarket, these two DVDs for $30, after what seemed like 40 days & nights of rain . . . not a Jim Carrey fan but this was a really sweet family movie - penguins, what's not to love??  Ice Age 400 or something, who cares, it was practically free & it's a bit Christmassy.
 Oh how neat are these pears - i have a vision for how my house will look when i'm 50 & it will include pears.  Lots of them.  Never too early to start a collection . . .
 blame Brenda from Red Stitch Designs & her delicious linen pears, of which i have many!!
Are you gliding into the Christmas spirit??  I just love this time of year as school wraps up, it's Summer, we're swimming, the shopping + i love wrapping & sending off gifts to those i love, ahhh . . . can you tell i'm well ahead of schedule & can laugh at the chaos??  Love Posie

I love the linen pears...but what also caught my eye were those gorgeous babushka dolls - did you make them?

Mr Poppers Penguins has been stalking me all day EVERYWHERE. I'm going to take it as a sign from the universe that the kidlets need to watch it.

I am loving the pears, and the eye mask! You are organised!

Sam said...

It's all too sweet for words, who doesn't love a pear? Good on you for being so organised, I sort of am, but could just get too complacent if not careful, still alot to organise yet :)

Brenda said...

I love your pear collection, mine started after I bought a huge silver pear a few years ago....I've never looked back. When we are old and even crazier we can compare our pears!

Rory looks so comfortable all snuggled up with those babushka dolls, I wouldn't have moved him either!

Oh, a school fundraiser with mangoes, how lovely! Such a nice change from the usual Freddo frogs and Krispy Kreme fundraisers we usually have here...mangoes would be heavenly xx

Sally said...

So much to love... especially those pears.

Amy said...

You I have never considered pears before now, but yours are gorgeous!

Great list Posie
