Oh my poor neglected blog, I still love you really, it's just been a busy fortnight with no time left over!

Anyway, I wanted to jump on quickly because I bought these little led and pearl fairy lights at Woolies (who would have thought!) and I just love them and thought someone else might want to duck in and grab some too - they were $7.99 a string and they take 3AA batteries - I bought 4 strings and this one is in my bowl - I was thinking along the lines of some sort of centrepiece for Christmas Day maybe, I'll have to have a proper play with them when things settle down a bit!

And just quickly, this too - I love it, it's in Target, $45 (was $60) - and it's a great size, quite large, perfect for all those yummy Christmas treats I plan to whip up (umm, yes, when things settle down a bit!) looks beautiful sitting on the bench :).

Here's some brownies we just made to christen it properly  - it was sitting on the bench with nothing inside it and it looked lonely!!

 Next to my Doulton beach bunnies, just to give you an idea of scale - it's quite big and for the price, well I have to admit to quite liking Target!

It's beginning to look like Christmas around here - my girls love these reindeer, they take them off the table to play with them all the time - one is the "mummy" and one is the "baby" - just really too cute to watch them!

Have a great day everyone :)
