A bit of rambling……….

My SIL sent some toe rings. Very cute ones. But I do not get to wear them. Aditi also like them and has taken them. The joy of having a daughter!! I guess….. She is wearing them as finger rings. They are perfect on her fingers. Aren’t they cute?

She wants to grow her nails, paint them and wear finger rings!!!

No prizes for guessing who she is copying, lol!!!!

We raided a garage sale near our house today and bought a huge number of books.

Kids just went crazy…

There are sets of Paul Jennings books, Enid Blyton books, Caption underpants, Simpson comics and other misc.. ones too!

I am so happy. They will occupied for a while reading books.

They also picked up some games and Aditi loved this cute little Panda soft toy,

which when rubbed on the tummy will make a little crying sound.

Very cute. They all look so new.

I bought a lovely wrought iron and wooden hallway furniture for 10$.

Couldn’t leave it, so beautiful and new!!

Where am I going to put it is another issue lol!!

Well, I have a few boxes to dispose and waiting for my neighbours to join for a garage sale..

I thing end of this month is when we have planned.

So one mega garage sale.

And make some room in the house…

What am I going to do today? I mean scrapbooking? I have no idea yet.

Got to go through the challenges and my stash….

Off I go..

My little cupboard………

I bought this cupboard off ebay long time ago.
What will I do without ebay? lol!!
Wanted to scrap it…..
And I got a chance when I was going through TBSS design team call.
I needed to submit 4 layouts and one OTP.
I think many DT call do follow the same criteria.
Anyway,I wanted to make a totally new and a different one.
Hence my cupboard came out of my cupboard!!! LOL!!

I had some beautiful Daisy D papers which I have used here.
I love purple and was perfect for this Shabby Chic style cupboard,
with some lovely Prima and Green Tara flowers, Bella flourishes and Kaiser Craft rhinestones.
I wanted the worn out look of the white paint still present
and still bring in some color and texture.
I like the outcome of it.
Now I have to put in a rod to hang my necklaces and earrings goes into the draw.
Need to look for a tiny small rod!! Any ideas?

This was what I was doing the whole day today except taking my kids to vac swimm.
Swimming will finish tomorrow. Yay!!
Couple of more Yays!! coming from either side of me from my kids. lol!!
They are tired now. Need a break.
Next week we are going to a seaside town called Esperence.
It will be much cooler and lovely beaches to enjoy.
There are some white sand beaches and it makes squeeky sound when you walk on them!!
Oh!! nice photos will come handy.lol!! Can’t wait to go..

Oh here more photos.

I got to go to bed now.
