The birthday twins turn two

Look at these gorgeous little girls.  They got together a couple of weeks after their birthday to share gifts and have a baby-cino.   They are just so gorgeous when they get together.

Best way to store your beautiful threads

It might look a bit messy, but these are my embroidery threads for my cross stitching.  A few months ago, my lovely friend from work who shares my love of stitching, gave me a lovely gift.  She gave me some thread storage spools.  I excitedly filled them up with my skeins that were pretty much full, and then I threw out the packaging, so unfortunately I can't recall the correct name for them, but they are apparently Aussie made which is so cool.

Birthday Season

One of the reasons I have been quiet on here recently is that we've just had birthday season.  Amy celebrated her 2nd birthday and I had mine too.  It was a busy couple of weeks cooking cakes, having tea parties and generally just getting spoilt by my generous family and friends.

I heart books

Ok, the above isn't technically a book... it's actually a notebook that I purchased in Rome with some leftover Euro's I had when I was at Fiumicino airport.  I think you can buy these types of notebooks here in Australia too, but it's the sort of thing I would look at and drool over, but wouldn't buy without a reason.

I think I mentioned in my last post that I was addicted to buying books from Book Depository.co.uk with it's special May sale.... well, I'm ashamed to say there have been further purchases.  Today being the first of June I thought to myself "*phew* less temptations now that the special is over", but NO, they've decided to add another week to their special.  I can just see myself purchasing more.
