God daughter

 I had a lovely walk along the beach today with my niece. 
We played with my camera. 

 Older people, when younger folk wanna hang out with you, it says a lot about you. That you're relateable and approachable.

Don't let age rob us of our ability to celebrate youth and their unique look on life. 

 I love this next generation of young people. They bring a lot of joy and life into our lives. 

A huge heart. the voice of an angel, and creativity galore.

 This god daughter of our's is something special.

thrifty finds

I'm looking forward to seeing some of you at the Tribal Banner workshop I'm running on Monday. There might even be a space or two left if you're interested in coming. Its free. Did I mention its free? I love a good bargain and a chance to use up some of that stash I know you've got lying around like all good thrifters and makers do.

Its no secret I love vintage things dearly. Here are some of my thrifty finds from this week.

A beautiful queen size crochet blanket. Mary Potters Hospice, Petone

 Baker type distressed shelves. Salvation Army, Lower Hutt.
