Victorian Cuff Swap - Posted

I finished my Victorian inspired cuff for Robin last week and sent it off with some other Victorian Era type goodies.   In Sydney we have the amazing Queen Victoria Building (QVB) which is filled with every kind of shopping delight you could think of.  It's one of my favourite places to visit. I included in my package to Robin (of Georgia USA) a cute souveneir tote and some postcards....yay!  Hope she likes her cuff and little extras - I really enjoyed making it. Thanks Hungry Hippie for hosting. X

(sorry about the dodgy pictures - it was quite hard to take a good photo of it, but you get an idea)

I am trying my darnedest to drink more water as per everyone's advice - so to help me get motivated I thought I go a little tropical and get some FIJI water.....sooo good!  ....but supplies are low - perhaps a trip to Fiji is in order?

"Back to The Future" - Flirty Apron Swap

Ta Da!....... what do you think of the apron I made for the "Back to the future" Flirty Apron Swap??  I had such a great time making it and looking for the "tuck-ins" (extra little goodies).  The tuck-ins had to reflect the Back-to-the-future themes, they being: 50s, 80s and The Future.

For the 80s I found these really cool RayBan-esque sunglasses that had a lovely pale blue frame & a metallic shopping tote with a giant picture of a cassette tape on it - awesome. 

 For the 50s I decided on a cute double string pearl bracelet and for The Future .... well that one was tough....but, trust me to think of food,  I remembered a childhood favourite "Space Food Sticks"...for when we travel to the moon of course!  :)

I haven't received my apron yet, but I will post picture as soon as I do!

I was out and about on the weekend and came across this number plate.....  As I'm sure you've noticed I like to say "yay"...a lot.   I had a great chuckle to myself and took this snap......YAY! Love it :)
