Pretty useful ;)*

A nursery tidy for baby's rattles and soft toys! I had various felt & fabric scraps left over from other projects and decided to just make something pretty and useful. The adorable chicken came from a tea cloth that had seen better days, its definitely added a certain something! Next I'll be making a little cotton bag for socks, bootees & hats - they are oh so tiny!

Also, I found this wooden wreath thing at the bottom of my cupboard - its just crying out for upcycling. Maybe this could be the base for my hanging leaf chandelier! hmmm (lightbulbs aflashing now!)....

Pat, my mum in law arrives tomorrow from England, with pushchair, car seat, moses basket and swinging crib in tow! Thankfully, she's taking the ferry over, i just hope everything will fit!! I'll keep you posted! ;D

Love n' hugs,

Thanks Vivi and All things Nice!

6 weeks from tomorrow - time is catching up with me! To be honest I'm scared and excited all rolled into one ;)

Must go now and make a juicy big pavlova for my mum in law, she deserves it after all that mileage! T xoxo

Oh my goodness, I am in love with that little bag. I can't wait to see all of the other little treasure that you are making for the nursery.

Simply darling for sure!
