New Shoes..

Starting a new year feels a bit like getting a new pair of shoes, shiny and new, no scuff marks, potential, no smell, you want to wear them with every outfit….  You look back at that old pair of worn in, slightly grubby last years pair and forget about the blisters, the hole in the sole, they were lovely, but now you’ve got a new shiny pair…


We’ve just arrived back from a week down at the beach house,  it was dreadfully hot and then raining, we still enjoyed some time out, swimming in the ocean, lazing in the hammock, afternoon siesta’s, iced coffee’s, cooked breakfast and a little shopping! Now to deal with the mountains of washing that follows a week at the beach…


While wandering the local shops, a lovely treasure trove of little gems to ooh and ahh over, I spied this lovely Missy Mao Mao bag, hhhmmmm, how can I justify another bag, no must walk away I told myself, until today when I let the family go for a walk down the pier and I went to buy bread…the shop is on the way to the bakery….I just had to have one last look…the rest as they say is history, so now I have a new bag and a new year.  You must check out Marilyn’s blog and website, she has many lovely bags to drool over.


This is one for the dog lovers out there, our DS received a camera for Christmas, we now have a few hundred photos of our dog Lucy, I thought this one was cute :)


Break in transmission as I have a lovely chat to Janellybelly in Perth, can’t get used to them being 3 hours behind at the moment.  Love you precious friend.  Speaking of precious friends I’m having morning tea with Katherine tomorrow, time to plan a few more sewing weekends ;)

Enjoy the exciting potential of the year ahead, watch out for the blisters and enjoy the special people in your life who will lovingly supply the Band-Aids.

I kylie.
Wow all the plugs and links. Thank you so much.
I'm so thrilled that you love your new bag. I love that red butterfly fabric, it's from the Wonderland range by Momo for Moda. Something about it makes you want to smile.
Have a great 2010

Happy New Year to you all. It is amazing how calm a new year starts with an empty calendar, and then how it finishes up so busy!! I trust you all had a great Christmas - I have to share my favourite present this year was from the kids and it was a set of 3nesting babushka dolls that were actually measuring cups - very cute. By the way kylie I adore that butterfly bag.

Hi there, just spoke to my sister in the US and showed her my blog. She told me to tell you that she loves your star. You have an international following!
Take care
